Red lyrics?
Zach already posted a message about the lyrics of the chorus of Red, but I can't figure out most of the song... Help?

Here's my best guess, though it'll probably take some fixing polishing by the author. Parts I'm uncertain about are in italics.

Cool liquid passes my lips
From the fountain by the crypts
Taste the water, expected clear
What I found filled me with fear

Red
The maze upon my fingertips leave marks upon the stone behind her head

Stained blade rests upon the ground
Still-warm fingers twisted round
Red feathers fan downstream
Through the water, from her veins

Red
The maze upon my fingertips leaves marks upon the stone behind her head
Blue
The color of her lips increase the age upon my face a fold of two

Maybe someday better, let her find a better way
They came to get her, had to drag her from the waterway

...solo...

Something water, once flowed with life
Worships her body like a shrine
Something something, something something
Take away what once was mine

Red
The maze upon my fingertips leaves marks upon the stone behind her head
Blue
The color of her lips increase the age upon my face a fold of two

Just listened to it again, and it's pretty clear in the last verse that the line I drew a blank on is "Cool liquid fingers caress her spine/Take away what once was mine".

Yes. and now, years later, you can look in the lyrics section!
