Opium Trail Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I took a line that leads you to the opium trail
Oriental eyes reveal the lies, deceit, betrayal
On this journey behold the one who travels far
You called him fool but now you are

The wizard wanders through the world we made from dreams
The splashing whirlpool drowns the frightened screams
Exotic dancers, flashing lenses, this mysterious space
The fanfare advances, the warlord falls from grace

It clears your pain
But it's got you claimed again, my love
You feel the need but it lets you bleed
You must concede, my love

No one to blame, no shame
You crave again and again, my love
No used to plead from you
It feeds on your greed, my love
Oh, it's got to you, my love

I took a line that comes from the golden states of Shan
The smugglers trail that leads you to the opium den
The Chinese connection refines to heroin
Depart the heart you crave again

It clears our pain
But your soul is claimed again, my love
You feel the need, but it lets you bleed
You must concede, my love

No one to blame, no shame
You crave again and again, my love
No use to plead
From you it feeds your greed, my love
