A Perfect Circle - Magdalena Lyrics

"A Perfect CircleLyrics

Overcome by your moving temple
Overcome by this holiest of altars
So pure, so rare,
To witness such an unearthly goddess
That I’ve lost my self-control
Beyond compelled to throw this dollar
Down before your
Holiest of altars

I’d sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one chance, one kiss,
One taste of you, my Magdalena

I bear witness to this place,
This prayer, so long forgotten
So pure, so rare
To witness such an unearthly goddess

That I’d sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one chance, one kiss,
One taste of you, my black Madonna

I’d sell my soul, my self-esteem
A dollar at a time
For one taste, one taste,
One taste of you, my Magdalena
