    THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS(RESENA)

    The Nightmare Before Christmas

    Si somos capaces de imaginar que existe un taller de Santa Claus, con renos
    y duendes, donde prácticamente todos los días del año se respira la magia de la Navidad... ¿Por qué no creer que también existe un reino similar, donde
    el aroma no es a pino, sino a calabazas, a espanto y a oscuridad? ¡El reino de Halloween!

    Para todos aquellos que puedan imaginarlo, se realizó esta joya de la
    cinematografía animada y musical; misma que pasó a la historia como uno de
    los largometrajes mejor logrados desarrollado bajo la técnica stop motion;
    sí, sí, los muñequitos de plastilina colocados en una posición para
    fotografiarlos, y luego otra, y otra, y otra...hasta tener horas y horas de
    arduo trabajo que serán editadas después para lograr un producto de duración muy reducida: ¡Apenas 76 minutos totales!

    Volviendo a Halloween Town. Jack Skellington, una larguirucha y simpática
    calavera es el Rey de este pequeño sitio, desde donde año con año se elabora el Halloween; sin embargo cuando la última noche de brujas termina, él se siente cansado, abatido y hastiado de hacer siempre el mismo trabajo. Es entonces cuando sale a caminar una vez que ha concluído el festejo; de hecho camina durante toda la noche, sólo para toparse, ¡oh sorpresa!, con el Reino de la Navidad. Allí, todo es color, fantasía, alegría e inocencia; no
    hay calabazas ni cabezas parlantes, no hay espectros ni diablillos, sólo
    deleite.

    La postal que tiene frente a sus ojos prácticamente enamora a Jack, quien
    decide orquestar un rapto: ni más ni menos que contra el jefe de este lugar,
    el bienamado Santa Claus. Esto con el fin de usurpar sus funciones y poder
    organizar él, junto con todos los súbditos de Halloween Town, una navidad
    mejorada. El resultado es catastrófico como pueden adivinar, pero
    maravillosa y colosalmente divertido.

    Paralelos e inmersos en esta cómica historia, otros cuentos se entretejen,
    como el de Sally, una muñeca de trapo que está enamorada de Jack desde hace tiempo y a final de cuentas le enseña a través de su Amor, el error que está cometiendo al querer ser algo que no le corresponde. Así, una fábula tierna y poderosa se gesta como trasfondo. Somos lo que somos y nuestra verdadera obligación radica no en querer ser distintos, sino en cumplir nuestra función y hacerlo endemoniadamente bien y de la mejor manera, porque de lo contrario nada ni nadie podrá sustituirnos. Una bonita moraleja para un cuento fantástico que entremezcla lo oscuro de la Noche de brujas con el encanto de la Navidad en una película para toda la familia.

    Cabe resaltar que gran parte de la cinta es musical. En este aspecto la
    partitura corrió a cargo del genio Danny Elfman, bien conocido por todos por su música profundamente expresiva y sus trabajos para otras realizaciones como Batman y El hombre manos de tijera. Las canciones son maravillosas, no sólo por su melodía sino por sus letras, que llegan a tocar aspectos tan humanos como el Amor, el hastío, la soledad o la alegría; un soundtrack altamente recomendable. Además de todo lo mencionado, esta cinta se llevó la estatuilla a Mejores Efectos Visuales, por si requerían otra garantía.

    Y finalmente... ¿ quién puede estar tras esta hermosa pesadilla ? Claro...
    por supuesto, el maestro de lo oscuro. El Señor Tim Burton, un genio de la
    penumbra cinematográfica a quien le debemos el guión y la producción de este clásico. Un dato curioso a propósito de esto: Aún cuando la Dirección corrió a cargo de Henry Selick, esta cinta es atribuída por muchos a Burton;
    incluso en los Estados Unidos, muchos medios la llaman
    Tim Burton's
    Nightmare Before Christmas
    . Lo que les indica el peso de la rúbrica de este Maestro.

    The Nightmare before Christmas, también conocida como El extraño mundo de Jack (¿quién diablos les pone estos títulos?) es una producción enorme, que sin duda puede ser disfrutada en estas fiestas de calabaza o incluso en las decembrinas con sabor a galletas de jengibre y pavo de Navidad.

    EL CUERVO DE EDGAR ALLAN POE

    Una vez, al filo de una lúgubre media noche,
    mientras débil y cansado, en tristes reflexiones embebido,
    inclinado sobre un viejo y raro libro de olvidada ciencia,
    cabeceando, casi dormido,
    oyóse de súbito un leve golpe,
    como si suavemente tocaran,
    tocaran a la puerta de mi cuarto.
    "Es -dije musitando- un visitante
    tocando quedo a la puerta de mi cuarto.
    Eso es todo, y nada más."

    ¡Ah! aquel lúcido recuerdo
    de un gélido diciembre;
    espectros de brasas moribundas
    reflejadas en el suelo;
    angustia del deseo del nuevo día;
    en vano encareciendo a mis libros
    dieran tregua a mi dolor.
    Dolor por la pérdida de Leonora, la única,
    virgen radiante, Leonora por los ángeles llamada.
    Aquí ya sin nombre, para siempre.

    Y el crujir triste, vago, escalofriante
    de la seda de las cortinas rojas
    llenábame de fantásticos terrores
    jamás antes sentidos. Y ahora aquí, en pie,
    acallando el latido de mi corazón,
    vuelvo a repetir:
    "Es un visitante a la puerta de mi cuarto
    queriendo entrar. Algún visitante
    que a deshora a mi cuarto quiere entrar.
    Eso es todo, y nada más."

    Ahora, mi ánimo cobraba bríos,
    y ya sin titubeos:
    "Señor -dije- o señora, en verdad vuestro perdón imploro,
    mas el caso es que, adormilado
    cuando vinisteis a tocar quedamente,
    tan quedo vinisteis a llamar,
    a llamar a la puerta de mi cuarto,
    que apenas pude creer que os oía."
    Y entonces abrí de par en par la puerta:
    Oscuridad, y nada más.

    Escrutando hondo en aquella negrura
    permanecí largo rato, atónito, temeroso,
    dudando, soñando sueños que ningún mortal
    se haya atrevido jamás a soñar.
    Mas en el silencio insondable la quietud callaba,
    y la única palabra ahí proferida
    era el balbuceo de un nombre: "¿Leonora?"
    Lo pronuncié en un susurro, y el eco
    lo devolvió en un murmullo: "¡Leonora!"
    Apenas esto fue, y nada más.

    Vuelto a mi cuarto, mi alma toda,
    toda mi alma abrasándose dentro de mí,
    no tardé en oír de nuevo tocar con mayor fuerza.
    "Ciertamente -me dije-, ciertamente
    algo sucede en la reja de mi ventana.
    Dejad, pues, que vea lo que sucede allí,
    y así penetrar pueda en el misterio.
    Dejad que a mi corazón llegue un momento el silencio,
    y así penetrar pueda en el misterio."
    ¡Es el viento, y nada más!

    De un golpe abrí la puerta,
    y con suave batir de alas, entró
    un majestuoso cuervo
    de los santos días idos.
    Sin asomos de reverencia,
    ni un instante quedo;
    y con aires de gran señor o de gran dama
    fue a posarse en el busto de Palas,
    sobre el dintel de mi puerta.
    Posado, inmóvil, y nada más.

    Entonces, este pájaro de ébano
    cambió mis tristes fantasías en una sonrisa
    con el grave y severo decoro
    del aspecto de que se revestía.
    "Aun con tu cresta cercenada y mocha -le dije-.
    no serás un cobarde.
    hórrido cuervo vetusto y amenazador.
    Evadido de la ribera nocturna.
    ¡Dime cuál es tu nombre en la ribera de la Noche Plutónica!"
    Y el Cuervo dijo: "Nunca más."

    Cuánto me asombró que pájaro tan desgarbado
    pudiera hablar tan claramente;
    aunque poco significaba su respuesta.
    Poco pertinente era. Pues no podemos
    sino concordar en que ningún ser humano
    ha sido antes bendecido con la visión de un pájaro
    posado sobre el dintel de su puerta,
    pájaro o bestia, posado en el busto esculpido
    de Palas en el dintel de su puerta
    con semejante nombre: "Nunca más."

    Mas el Cuervo, posado solitario en el sereno busto.
    las palabras pronunció, como virtiendo
    su alma sólo en esas palabras.
    Nada más dijo entonces;
    no movió ni una pluma.
    Y entonces yo me dije, apenas murmurando:
    "Otros amigos se han ido antes;
    mañana él también me dejará,
    como me abandonaron mis esperanzas."
    Y entonces dijo el pájaro: "Nunca más."

    Sobrecogido al romper el silencio
    tan idóneas palabras,
    "sin duda -pensé-, sin duda lo que dice
    es todo lo que sabe, su solo repertorio, aprendido
    de un amo infortunado a quien desastre impío
    persiguió, acosó sin dar tregua
    hasta que su cantinela sólo tuvo un sentido,
    hasta que las endechas de su esperanza
    llevaron sólo esa carga melancólica
    de "Nunca, nunca más."

    Mas el Cuervo arrancó todavía
    de mis tristes fantasías una sonrisa;
    acerqué un mullido asiento
    frente al pájaro, el busto y la puerta;
    y entonces, hundiéndome en el terciopelo,
    empecé a enlazar una fantasía con otra,
    pensando en lo que este ominoso pájaro de antaño,
    lo que este torvo, desgarbado, hórrido,
    flaco y ominoso pájaro de antaño
    quería decir granzando: "Nunca más."

    En esto cavilaba, sentado, sin pronunciar palabra,
    frente al ave cuyos ojos, como-tizones encendidos,
    quemaban hasta el fondo de mi pecho.
    Esto y más, sentado, adivinaba,
    con la cabeza reclinada
    en el aterciopelado forro del cojín
    acariciado por la luz de la lámpara;
    en el forro de terciopelo violetaacariciado por la luz de la lámpara
    ¡que ella no oprimiría, ¡ay!, nunca más!

    Entonces me pareció que el aire
    se tornaba más denso, perfumado
    por invisible incensario mecido por serafines
    cuyas pisadas tintineaban en el piso alfombrado.
    "¡Miserable -dije-, tu Dios te ha concedido,
    por estos ángeles te ha otorgado una tregua,
    tregua de nepente de tus recuerdos de Leonora!
    ¡Apura, oh, apura este dulce nepente
    y olvida a tu ausente Leonora!"
    Y el Cuervo dijo: "Nunca más."

    "¡Profeta! exclamé-, ¡cosa diabolica!
    ¡Profeta, sí, seas pájaro o demonio
    enviado por el Tentador, o arrojado
    por la tempestad a este refugio desolado e impávido,
    a esta desértica tierra encantada,
    a este hogar hechizado por el horror!
    Profeta, dime, en verdad te lo imploro,
    ¿hay, dime, hay bálsamo en Galaad?
    ¡Dime, dime, te imploro!"
    Y el cuervo dijo: "Nunca más."

    "¡Profeta! exclamé-, ¡cosa diabólica!
    ¡Profeta, sí, seas pájaro o demonio!
    ¡Por ese cielo que se curva sobre nuestras cabezas,
    ese Dios que adoramos tú y yo,
    dile a esta alma abrumada de penas si en el remoto Edén
    tendrá en sus brazos a una santa doncella
    llamada por los ángeles Leonora,
    tendrá en sus brazos a una rara y radiante virgen
    llamada por los ángeles Leonora!"
    Y el cuervo dijo: "Nunca más."

    "¡Sea esa palabra nuestra señal de partida
    pájaro o espíritu maligno! -le grité presuntuoso.
    ¡Vuelve a la tempestad, a la ribera de la Noche Plutónica.
    No dejes pluma negra alguna, prenda de la mentira
    que profirió tu espíritu!
    Deja mi soledad intacta.
    Abandona el busto del dintel de mi puerta.
    Aparta tu pico de mi corazón
    y tu figura del dintel de mi puerta.
    Y el Cuervo dijo: Nunca más."

    Y el Cuervo nunca emprendió el vuelo.
    Aún sigue posado, aún sigue posado
    en el pálido busto de Palas,
    en el dintel de la puerta de mi cuarto.
    Y sus ojos tienen la apariencia
    de los de un demonio que está soñando.
    Y la luz de la lámpara que sobre él se derrama
    tiende en el suelo su sombra. Y mi alma,
    del fondo de esa sombra que flota sobre el suelo,
    no podrá liberarse.
    ¡Nunca más!

    LYRICS

    SLAYER LYRICS
    God Hates Us All (2001)


    1. Darkness Of Christ

    Mankind in his insatiable search for divine
    Knowledge has discarded all biblical teachings

    Realizing that the strength of religion is the repression of
    knowledge
    All structures of religion have collapsed

    Life prays for death
    in the wake of the horror of these revelations

    It was never imagined how graphic the reality that would
    be known as the end
    of creation
    Would manifest itself

    We believe all this chaos and atrocity can be traced
    Back to one single event

    We hold these truths to be painfully self-evident
    All men are not created equal
    Only the strong will prosper
    Only the strong will conquer
    Only in the darkness of Christ have I realized
    God Hates Us All


    2. Disciple

    Drones since the dawn of time
    Compelled to live your sheltered lives
    Not once has anyone ever seen
    Such a rise of pure hypocracy
    I'll instigate I'll free your mind
    I'll show you what I've known all this time

    God Hates Us All, God Hates Us All
    You know it's true God hates this place
    You know it's true he hates this race

    Homicide-Suicide
    Hate heals, you should try it sometime
    Strive for Peace with acts of war
    The beauty of death we all adore
    I have no faith distracting me
    I know why your prayers will never be answered

    God Hates Us All; God Hates Us All
    He Fuckin' hates me

    Pessimist, Terrorist targeting the next mark
    Global chaos feeding on hysteria
    Cut throat, slit your wrist, shoot you in the back fair game
    Drug abuse, self abuse searching for the next high
    Sounds a lot like hell is spreading all the time
    I'm waiting for the day the whole world fucking dies

    I never said I wanted to be God's disciple
    I'll never be the one to blindly follow

    Man made virus infecting the world
    Self-destruct human time bomb
    What if there is no God would you think the fuckin' same
    Wasting your life in a leap of blind faith
    Wake the fuck up can't ignore what I say
    I got my own philosophy

    I hate everyone equally
    You can't tear that out of me
    No segregation -separation
    Just me in my world of enemies

    I never said I wanted to be God's disciple
    I'll never be the one to blindly follow
    I'll never be the one to bear the cross-disciple

    I reject this fuckin' race
    I despise this fuckin' place


    3. God Send Death

    On your back look on to me
    You'll see genocide
    Face from death more than insane
    Profane pleading cries
    Watch you die inside watch you die

    God send death end misery
    Preach no love of ministry
    Pray for sin a shattered faith
    Down on your knees
    Your screaming out to die

    Death is over due
    Nothing can save you
    A morbid symphony
    Hearing you lie there screaming
    Taking life from you
    Is all I wanna do
    Desire so deranged
    This is what lives inside me

    Putrid blood flows through my veins
    To thrive on demise
    Voyeurs' lust watching the pain
    Touching you inside
    Bleed you fucking dry
    Bleed on me

    Death's design blood splattered wall
    Face melting one vicious whore
    Twisted figures flesh from bone
    Down on your knees
    Your screaming out
    To die

    Death is overdue
    Nothing can save you
    A morbid symphony
    Hearing you lie there screaming
    Taking life from you
    Is all I wanna do
    Desire so deranged
    This is what lives inside me

    Clawing at the eyes of god
    You taste your death in hand
    Your fingers bleed in vain
    Your scream-in your grave
    Clawing at the eyes of god
    You pierce your throat and hands
    You've gone insane with pain
    Your blind screaming for your god
    Pathetic god

    Death's design blood splattered wall
    Face melting one vicious whore
    Twisted figures
    Drown your mind in pain


    4. New Faith

    Holy man open up your eyes
    To the ways of the world you've been so blind
    As the walls of religion come crashing down
    How's the ignorance taste the second time around

    Tell me how it feels knowing chaos will never end
    Tell me what it's like when the celebration begins

    Welcome to the horror of the revelation
    Tell me what you think of your savior now
    I reject all the biblical views of the truth
    Dismiss it as the folklore of the times
    I won't be force fed prophecies
    From a book of untruths for the weakest mind
    Join the new faith for the celebration
    Cult of new faith fuels the devastation

    Holy man come and worship me
    I am all that you ever wanted to be
    I'm the life of indulgence you never knew
    The epitome of evil shining through

    Tell me how it feels knowing chaos will never end
    Tell me what it's like when the celebration begins

    Welcome to the horror of the revelation
    Tell me what you think of your savior now
    I reject all the biblical views of the truth
    Dismiss it as the folklore of the times
    I won't be force fed prophecies
    From a book of untruths for the weakest mind
    I keep the bible in a pool of blood
    So that none of its lies can affect me

    This is new faith
    A different way of life
    Witness the shame
    See for yourself the lies
    I'll take the fight
    Bring it every time, any time
    Refuse to let them win
    My heresy begins

    Pray for life - wish for death
    Pray for life - know in time you'll pray for death

    Tear it away
    It lives inside your mind
    Silence the fear
    That keeps you pure inside
    Now you can see
    Life's atrocities endlessly
    Witness the miracle
    Witness the miracle

    Pray for life - wish for death
    Pray for life - with every breath
    You'll pray for death - you'll pray for death
    Embrace new faith, embrace new faith
    Yeah, new faith - yeah, new faith.


    5. Cast Down

    Despair, emptiness
    See the hatred wasted on yourself
    Face down taste the dust; it's getting harder everyday
    Just to find a reason not to end it all yourself
    Suicide on the street
    Everywhere around you watch it breed
    It begins to bury you in self-induced rejection

    So now you're wasted, broken down
    I see through your ignorance
    Penetrate the surface of your insecure inside
    Next fix, shoot it up
    Looking for the place where god speaks
    Every time you find him he just stabs you in the back
    again

    No one hears you
    You're society's infection
    I won't judge you
    When the blood steals life from you

    Cast down and thrown away
    You are the living dead
    The needle numbs the pain
    Of all your suffering
    This is where the world of money changes nothing

    Just a statistic in the shadows of the real world
    The system's failing you just the way it failed me
    Hell is home on the concrete where the city bleeds
    America - home of the free - land of fucking
    disenchantment

    Despair, emptiness
    Isolation rapes you everyday
    Face down taste the dust, digging deeper in your grave
    Haven't found a reason
    Haven't found a thing to fucking live for
    Godless he doesn't care
    How you choose to destroy yourself
    In a world that feeds on hate
    You're left here just to waste away
    In your cardboard prison, asphalt wasteland

    No one hears you
    You're society's infection
    I won't judge you
    When the blood steals life from you
    No one sees you
    You're society's infection
    I won't judge you
    When the blood steals life from you

    Cast down and thrown away
    You are the living dead
    The needle numbs the pain
    Of all your suffering
    This is where the world of money changes nothing


    6. Threshold

    I don't want to see, I don't want to hear
    I don't want to feel anything Can't you understand
    Everything I do doesn't stem from you
    It doesn't have a fucking thing to do with you
    I just want to die Throw it all away
    Never have to feel again the way you make me
    Lose my fuckin' mind all the fuckin' time
    Can't control the violence that's spewing from me
    Take It
    I can't control the rage that flows from me
    I can't shut it down it overwhelms me
    I can't stop the rage that flows from me
    Can't Stop The
    Violence I love it
    No one's immune to hate that flows from it
    Infectious I feed on it
    Every fucking endless day
    You're either on my side or else You're In my way
    No one stands a chance when I'm lashing out
    Random hate there is no other way
    It's my discipline it's my way of life

    Never wanted bliss never wanted you
    Never needed anyone I've polluted
    Everything you feel everything you are
    Everything you'll ever be you repulse me
    It's always about you always come at me
    With shit I can't identify you know it makes me
    Lose my fuckin' mind all the fuckin' time
    Can't control the violence that's spewing from me
    Take It
    Can't stop the
    Violence I love it
    No one's immune to hate that flows from it
    Infectious I feed on it
    Every fucking endless day
    You're either on my side or else you're in my way
    No one stands a chance when I'm lashing out
    Random hate there is no other way
    It's my discipline it's my way of life


    7. Exile

    Even though some things are better left unsaid
    There's a few things I need to get off my chest
    I need to vent - let me tell you why

    I'm suicidal, maniacal, self-destructive
    You leave me no hope, no life
    Nothing worth living for
    I've taken it, can't take it anymore
    My worst nightmare
    You make me want to slit my own fucking throat
    Just so I'll be rid of you
    Just to get rid of you

    You self-righteous fuck
    Give me a reason not to rip your fucking face off
    Why don't you take a good look in these eyes
    Cause I'm the one that's gonna tear your fucking heart
    out
    My hate is contagious; you've got no one to run to
    EXILE

    Just tell me fucking why everything becomes an issue
    Your opinion is always senseless - fuck this
    You make my fucking skin crawl
    I've lived with it - can't stand anymore
    My worst nightmare
    I want to take a bullet in the fucking head
    Every time I think of you, every time I think of you

    You self-righteous fuck
    Give me a reason not to rip your fucking face off
    Why don't you take a good look in these eyes
    Cause I'm the one that's gonna tear your fucking heart
    out
    My hate is contagious
    Anyone else need to vent?
    You've tried my tolerance; I just want you to die

    There's nothing more for me to say
    There's nothing more for you to say
    There's nothing more for us to say
    I fucking hate you anyway
    EXILE

    Can't count the ways that you light my fuckin fuse
    I can't tolerate the sight of you, the thought of you or
    anything about you
    You know what I want to see?
    How many ways can a loser fucking lose
    I know you'll find a way
    The humility awakening the idiot inside
    You spineless fucking maggot - you're just wasting my
    time
    Get out of my face - Get out of my life
    Out of my fucking way - Just die


    8. Seven Faces

    I saw them all around today
    They don't stop they won't go away
    They love the darkness in my eyes
    Help me find a way out when I'm lost within myself

    They show me everything I need
    There's nothing wrong with a little greed
    Never enough to satisfy
    Such a driving desire that burns inside

    My life came with it's own scars
    I don't need you to tell me about your sorrow
    I can't say I've seen it all
    But I live for the things that keep me hollow

    Everyday I look into the mirror
    Staring back I look less familiar
    I've seen all seven faces
    Each one looks a lot like me

    They all look like me
    I never see them coming
    But they show me more of myself
    Drawn into the depths
    I never knew existed
    Launching me face first
    Into the pleasures of pure lust and greed
    I am becoming all things envied, I am the excess
    I want it all more pain more sex more lies more of
    everything

    My Life came with it's own scars
    I don't need you to tell me about your sorrow
    I can't say I've seen it all
    But I live for the things that keep me hollow

    Everyday I look into the mirror
    Staring back I look less familiar
    I've seen all seven faces
    Each one looks a lot like me

    They all look like me

    I am becoming all things envied, I am the excess
    I want it all more pain more sex more lies more of
    everything


    9. Bloodline

    Eternal the kiss I breath
    Siphon your blood to me
    Feel my wounds of your god
    Forever rape mortality
    I smell of death
    I reek of hate
    I will live forever
    Lost child pay the dead
    Bleeding screams of silence
    In my veins your eternity

    I'll kill you and your dreams tonight
    Begin new life
    Bleed your death upon me
    Let your bloodline feed my youth

    First breath born come alive learn to kill
    Bloodfest awaits to feed your hunger
    Dark side has no rival test your faith in blood
    Night hides the hunting packs a feeding frenzy

    I'll kill you and your dreams tonight
    Begin new life
    Bleed your death upon me
    Let your bloodline feed my youth

    I am the first not the last
    Condemned by a single kiss
    Betrayed eternally I'll rip inside your soul
    Contaminating the world
    Defying god and son
    Black heart that brings your death
    Living in infamy

    Drink the flesh of life itself
    Prepare to reign a thousand years

    I'll kill you and your dreams tonight
    Begin new life
    Bleed your death upon me
    Let your bloodline feed my youth

    Blame god chosen children
    As you die I'm immortal
    Faithless no religion
    Stalking prey is my confession
    Captive blood enslavement
    Pain and hunger drives your madness
    Drink flesh life itself
    Prepare to reign a thousand years


    10. Deviance

    I embrace the darkness within
    Forever serve beneath its hand
    Horrid thoughts that surface to me
    Ceremony bloods command
    I will live through this forever
    I have done the things you grieve
    As you kneel before its evil
    Death is here deep inside your

    Skinned alive now naked
    Terrorized no humanity
    Seek salvation from an mia god
    Empty vessels chanting for your death

    Walk the streets beneath the shadows
    Searching for a cryptic bride
    Eat alive the conscience I hate
    Without pain I watch you die
    I will live through this forever
    I have done the things you grieve
    As you kneel before its evil
    My face is the last you'll see

    Soaked in blood the mask you wear
    Haunting cries the dead scream for me
    Staring eyes invoke no guilt
    I can taste your mind your lifeless

    Face the dead and dying
    Feel your life drain
    Through your soul
    Seek salvation from an mia god
    Empty vessels chanting for the dead

    Death is yours
    Your veins have dried
    Staring eyes of glass now empty
    Still you speak with lips so cold
    In my head I hear you cry

    God is dead can't save me
    Taking lives with impunity
    Resurrection of a deviant Christ
    Feeding hate to capacity - deviance


    11. War Zone

    Explosive you feel the impact hit your face
    What makes you think I'll let you survive
    You want a war I'm the front line
    Unbroken

    This ain't about me
    I'm better than you'll ever be
    You don't concern me
    I know you'll never get to me
    You want a shot
    I can take your best bring it on
    Get ready for the pain
    Cause this where it's going down

    Warzone- This is where it's going down
    Warzone- When you walk in my world
    Madness is coming your way
    As long as my heart still beats

    Take your lesson in Supremacy
    Cause I'm the one who stands alone at the summit

    This ain't about me
    I'm better than you'll ever be
    You don't concern me
    You know you'll never get to me
    You want a shot
    I can take your best bring it on
    Get ready for the pain
    Cause this is where it's going down

    I am the wall you can never climb
    I am the pain that you feel inside
    I bring it all let the show begin
    I am the War you can never win

    Warzone- This is where it's going down
    Warzone- When you walk in my world
    Madness is coming your way
    As long as my heart still beats
    I can guarantee you
    Madness is coming your way


    12. Here Comes The Pain

    I am the new hell on earth
    The lord of agony divine
    Domination, intimidation
    Lives within these eyes
    Reign of power
    Remorseless anarchy
    I am arrogance in the flesh
    Unleashed intensity

    Step aside for the nightmare
    Pure destruction stands before you
    No escape as the psycho
    Brings you misery
    The line starts here

    I am brutality the face of everlasting pain
    Annihilation, Obliteration
    Pulses in these veins
    Sheer defiance drives my hostility
    I am merciless to the core
    Chaotic fury breeds

    Step aside for the nightmare
    Pure destruction stands before you
    No escape as the psycho
    Brings you misery
    The line starts here

    Bring it all on
    Come and take on what you fear
    I'm the storm
    That towers overhead
    Ticking time bomb
    With an infinite charge
    Bringer of torture
    The master is here
    Everyone falls

    Here comes the pain
    You're no different from the rest
    Victim is your name in my vicious wasteland
    Here comes the pain
    Your destruction manifests
    Lying there broken looking up as I still stand

    Bring it all on
    Come and take on what you fear
    I'm the storm
    That towers overhead
    Ticking time bomb
    With an infinite charge
    Bringer of torture
    The master is here
    Everyone falls


    13. Payback

    You need to take a closer look at me
    Cause I was born to be the thorn in your side
    No matter what you think you're gonna see
    You never wanted this barrage of fucking pride
    You don't want none of me

    You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
    Pissing your common sense away
    When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
    For my own peace of mind - I'm going to
    Tear your fucking eyes out
    Rip your fucking flesh off
    Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
    Fuck you and your progress
    Watch me fucking regress
    You were made to take the fall - now you're nothing
    Payback's a bitch motherfucker

    You only live to be a parasite
    Your life must suck when nothing's going your way
    Everything melts away before your eyes
    You're just a punk that doesn't have the sense to get away
    Get the fuck away

    You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
    Pissing your common sense away
    When you draw first blood you can't stop this fight
    For my own peace of mind - I'm going to
    Tear your fucking eyes out
    Rip your fucking flesh off
    Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
    Fuck you and your progress
    Watch me fucking regress
    You were made to take the fall - now you're nothing
    Payback's a bitch motherfucker

    I will never become your fucking scapegoat
    I don't know how it feels to come up short
    I only want vengeance
    To come shining down on me
    I don't want you to die
    Before I get the chance to kill you myself

    You've got a fucking catheter in your brain
    Pissing your common sense away
    This is for the mindfuck
    This is for the hell of it
    This is for me- I'm going to
    Tear your fucking eyes out
    Rip your fucking flesh off
    Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
    Fuck you and your progress
    Watch me fucking regress
    You were made to take the fall - now you're nothing
    Tear your fucking eyes out
    Rip your fucking flesh off
    Beat you till you're just a fucking lifeless carcass
    Fuck you and your progress
    Watch me fucking regress
    You were made to take the fall - now you're nothing
    Now you're nothing


    14. Scarstruck

    [Bonus track]
    [music & lyrics: King]

    Come step inside my hate you know there's nothing to it
    Step inside my pain you'll never make it through it
    Once you're sucked into my sado-paradise
    Lose your mind inside the pleasure lies within your pain
    Drown in my hate you know, you know
    Brutality's the way of this world
    Branded and scarred defy, defy
    A comatose and blind existence
    Hatred holocaust you see in me
    Its more than just a way of life
    I've re-invented the way
    I relate to this complacent world
    All of life decays
    Rapes my eyes
    Screams never silence the pain
    Death is like an old friend
    I can't wait to watch you die
    I am you vice so real, so real
    Desires of the scars of new flesh
    Bathe in you blood excites/incites
    The ritualistic lacerations
    Inhumanities profane, insane
    Inflicted since the dawn of time
    Make your peace with God - goodbye
    And embrace the pain that burns inside you
    All of life decays
    Rapes my eyes
    Screams never silence the pain
    Death is like an old friend
    I can't wait to watch you die
    I can't wait
    Come step inside my hate you know there's nothing to it
    Step inside my pain you'll never make it through it
    Redefine your life in sado-paradise
    Necessary cleansing of the mind's eye
    Love and agony electric ecstasy
    Can't get enough euphoric serenity
    Stains won't fade away forever scarstruck
    They never fade away forever scarstruck
    Drown in my hate you know, you know
    Brutality's the way of this world
    Branded and scarred defy, defy
    A comatose and blind existence
    Your like the walking dead so blind inside
    Oblivious to psycho pleasure
    I am your new God - unGod
    So if you want hell here I am
    Everything around me decays
    Rapes my eyes
    Screams never silence the pain
    Make you my canvas of pure, fresh, flesh
    Scarstruck


    15. Addict

    [Bonus track]
    [music: Hanneman, Lyrics:King]

    I won't cover you eyes
    I want your innocence
    Glisten before me in a cold sweat
    I wan't you to see your lie spill on me
    Spill on me
    Manifested as a primitive craving
    The craving never seems to go away
    I want to see the face of everyone fall
    Fall into the cold embrace of death
    You're in my nightmare
    I decide when it stops
    It's my fucking drug
    Makes my rush intensify
    Hardcore the overdose
    Your fear gets me high
    Unbound I'm the weapon made to sterilize
    Sterilize all the idiot victims
    Anytime, anywhere, anyone I want
    Everyone's addicted to this torture
    I'm the agony in every breath
    Every breath brings you closer to me
    You'll do anything, anything
    You'll do anything to make it stop
    You're in my nightmare
    I decide when it stops
    It's my fucking drug
    Makes my rush intensify
    Chaos deep inside it makes me
    It makes me feel surreal
    It makes me need to kill
    It makes me feel surreal
    It makes me need to kill
    Do you want to feel eternity
    Your eternity lies within me
    I am the terror of your final breath
    Your final breath brings light to my darkness
    Like an act of fucking God unleashed
    On the innocence - innocence of mankind
    You'll do anything - anything
    You'll do anything to make it stop
    It's my fucking drug
    Makes my rush intensify
    Hardcore the overdose
    Your fear gets me of like fuck

    LYRICS

    CRADLE OF FILTH LYRICS
    Damnation And A Day (2003)

    1. A Bruise Upon The Silent Moon

    "And the Earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep..."


    2. The Promise Of Fever

    In the beginning
    Rimmed with wind and storm
    A great black wrath of infinite math
    Spat snarling into form
    And there was Heaven
    Lit up with precious stones
    Each one could fall but for the rule
    Of Faith and love and stronger thrones

    And therein rose vast wonders
    Affections to be seen
    Fathered from the plundered
    Reflections of a dream

    Fogging into nightmare
    For him whose place was set
    With wayward stars that absent, marred
    All creation with their theft

    In the beginning
    Bewinged and ringed with dawn
    This favoured Avatar, enthralled
    Swansongs from those that thronged this shore
    With Gabriel and Michael
    He shone with fierce intent
    For loyalty, their joy to see
    Him spur the hymns to heaven (sent)

    For sculptured lips of seraphim
    Whom fate then cruelly rent
    (With sleight fingered strains of harmony)
    Each note to grim portent

    As grinning nimbus gathered
    Over spires arabesque
    For Him that blazed with holy praise
    That for a jealous God was meant

    Shining Feriluce
    Lustrous scourge of fallen spirits
    Basked in glory, flew
    To lakes in sacred altitudes

    Sweet haunting music swathed the breeze
    With curling tongues that lapped the lead
    As through thick mountain mist (with thoughts adrift)
    Until at last, past grasping trees

    He paused to draught forbidden streams
    That whispered siren promises
    To drown his thirst (for sports amiss)

    These waters held secrets
    Like raped Russian dolls
    Wherein evil and good
    Tore his soul for control

    And drunk with the verse of desire's first words
    The weight of the universe
    Slunk in rehearsed

    Horror in numbers too great to discern
    The rotting of worlds to the conqueror worm
    And love a rare orchid so fragile in bloom
    Espied gasping breath under dark sheeted moons

    Shining Feriluce
    Reflected in jaded mirror
    Climbing from the noose
    Of time in divine servitude

    And thus a strange new melody
    Of will and wanton fantasies
    Whetted by the veiled, seen
    Danced from his ashen lips
    In red dawn scores, the silver scream
    Of truth and her deleted scenes
    Was taken up as far, it seemed
    As God his words eclipsed

    (Those waters hid visions
    Like butchers in war
    Perverting the course
    Of life's blood evermore...)
    In the beginning
    Skinned well with gibbous tones
    Of countenance and ignorance
    In equal measures sewn
    A marbled arc of Angels
    Sworn to the morningstar
    Shared His pride and deep inside
    Felt Chill Shadows sweep their cards


    3. Hurt And Virtue

    Distant vistas
    Swathed in the haze
    Of the reddening sunset
    Fell to whispers
    'Neath stars that marred descending skies

    From the cusp of midnight mountains
    Wending as a mist
    Rebels truced with Feriluce
    (In truth, few could resist)
    Came praising his hellraising through
    The sparse and marble clime
    Where Virtue bathed, their ravings made
    Her fountains flood with wine

    Lifted with the gift
    Of their dark seductive songs
    She drifted from the path
    She was surely set upon

    Courting chaos
    Prized in sight
    Of the covering angel
    Taught in ways of
    Smothering another lover
    Other than God

    Worshipped in each other's arms
    Like spider eidolons
    The moon conducted like a charm
    Those strange attachments on
    And this is how they came to be
    Dragged before the throne
    Through tongues that hung whilst theirs were run
    On soft white throats and punctured moans

    Though fated now than later
    By his tutor that had been
    He baited the Creator
    With the future he had seen

    Of Michael, psyched with jealousies
    A reich right by His side
    And worming Man about to be
    The apple of His eye

    His children lost to free will
    And the cost of beaten hearts
    Like the night 'twixt vice and Virtue
    When Her kiss became a scar

    Seraph enemies
    Why has my lord forsaken my judgment
    Am I not free as He to indulge my darkest fantasies?

    From embittered lips
    These words were slaved
    Split with the whips
    Of their witch hunt gathered

    He sought Her grave
    Midst drowning crowds that howled in rage...
    Blasphemer!
    Blasphemer!
    Though she was gone
    Not lyriced to the song of their spirited throng
    But ghosted back where she belong...

    A grace embracing Michael
    In a lace of tears that bleared his pride
    He swallowed
    Blood followed
    Though with spit for all things divine
    Though with spit for all things so fucking blind

    His seal He tore
    And to the floor
    He threw this tie to heaven
    Signifying holy war

    And watchful of this sign
    A thousand flames, unauthorised
    Left celestial posts
    To coalesce and, unified
    Return their fallen leader
    As he turned one final time
    And threw a glance
    Like a downward lance
    That stung like guilt in every mind


    4. An Enemy Led The Tempest

    As pride precedes the downfall
    So he took His place before the firewall
    Of dissonant choirs whose faith in one
    Was embraced in this wraith whose fate was hung

    Between forgiveness and the damage done

    An electric scent over drear decay
    Lent a violent surge to their serenades
    Through white glades as His winged parade
    Bent to silhouette and to sharpen dull razors

    Within vast skies unversed in starkness
    His might grew
    And blew light hues to grey...
    And worse, a third of stars to darkness

    Then thunder seethed
    And wreathed in thickening night
    A line was drawn midst wrong and right
    And across the throat of thieves

    As love fell choked, the tempest broke
    From Heaven's farthest shore
    Descending to eclipse all hope
    Repentance might stay holy war

    He would not heel nor fake a bow
    Murmur curses to the wind
    Enraged, he raved in balrog howls
    Upon a storm firstborn of sin

    Incensed anew, rebellious tore
    Like frenzied beasts of prey
    Through temple doors...
    Thrown east before the midnight masses

    And where once bliss reigned so serene
    In sweeter glades
    Now veins ran openly...
    Like eyes that shed from kindred ashes

    When suddenly
    There shone a hideous light
    And a voice like three insanities
    Soared up in thistled speech

    "Thou hast bred hate where there dwelt none
    And for this grave mistake
    How thou art fallen Morning Sun
    The proud will be abased"

    He would not heel nor fake a bow
    Murmur curses to the wind
    And lo, the wrath of god swept down...

    "Thou art no more an angel filled
    With light, but a leech to be abhorred
    And thou shalt suffer My burning will"...
    Quoth this raven: "Nevermore"

    Nevermore

    And with these words like heavy stone
    Cast against that gilded throne
    With many legions still in tow
    He turned his wings to flee
    His eyes a picture of distaste
    Drawn to tears and in their place
    The dawn of time and fates to face
    Through all eternity...

    I wept for him a deep red river
    That ran like blood through scarred ravines
    To sluice away the guilt that slithered
    Like a serpent tongue to Eve
    For once as I, in heaven climbed
    Too high for truth to truly see
    My sunken mind, drunken and blind
    Saw the lie: The fool was Me...

    Alone and cold, face to the crack
    Beyond the dark gates with no way back
    His crown of gold faded to black
    Like a bruise upon the heart that lingers

    With thrill-kill culture shock wave lengths
    Of rope to hang high
    Ten commandments by...
    Snaked about his upraised fingers


    5. Damned In Any Language (A Plague On Words)

    "And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the Dragon, and the Dragon fought and his angels, and prevailed not. Neither was their place found anymore in Heaven. And the Great Dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the devil and Satan which deceiveth the whole world, he was cast out into the Earth and his angels were cast out with him."
    [Revelations 12:7-9]


    6. Better To Reign In Hell

    Heart in hand passed clasp of pain
    In dark lowland that set bad blood in veins
    Burning, like penal fires roused to strain
    The jagged-toothed skyline braced with crosses

    The golden dawn
    Lay lost to mist where
    Emboldened thorns
    Made their bed with toppled stones

    He closed His eyes
    Sunken to dream there
    Of crow-black skies
    And a great white empty throne
    Horror stalked the bilious fogs
    That balked his visions

    He licked the spittle from the cheeks of the wry
    And drifted back to when His stung its target
    The sneer of Michael on a glorious high
    Of angel dust and Virtue by his side

    Drowning in the past
    That downfall seemed like yesterday
    Though blurred moons passed
    As enemies in high places laughed

    Moved to mirrors cracked with heavy lines
    He rose snowblind, through shifting sands of time
    Erased the trace and taste of bitter wines
    The grapes of wrath grew fat on the vine

    She came to Him
    A little whip of tantrums
    Thrashed on velvet skins
    That lines Her wishbone Henge

    Her name was Sin
    A warming spurt of mantras
    Splashed on occult tongues
    That whispered sweet revenge

    For the shame of their crawl from grace
    Cold and hollow as the grave

    And for a rape and ruinous scourge
    Spared for souls that shared God's worship
    For now their throats coated notes with dirge
    That poured from parapets to the pits below

    Drowning in the past
    A wretched scream like yesterday
    Died at last
    With the rising of the revenant dark

    All sharpened claws and blunt discharge

    "I shall bow no more to the dogs of the Lord
    Tearing at my carcass heart
    I shall fall to my knees only at the keyholes
    Of Virtue slipping into bondage masks...
    Freewill made me better to reign in hell"

    And with new wings
    Unfurled and spoken
    He took to things
    That would desecrate the world

    The seduction of both woman and man
    For a bastard masterplan

    Drowning out the past
    Fool Fates unwound cruel yesterdays
    beneath the stars
    That staggered from the blast


    7. Serpent Tongue

    [Part 1]

    So adept was unspoken Man
    At dusting ledgers of the seraphim
    That Lilith swept across the broken land
    In a whirl of lust to pleasure him

    This bland Adam, a reaper of the sun
    In bone dry season, for Eve was busy sucking thumbs
    Pricked in rosy gardens as he spattered into shells
    And ran with morning fauna; His mastiffs and gazelle

    Breathless as the wind
    Adam, prowled, fell foul to Sin
    But not before She spread Her grin
    Across His silent lips
    At crack of day, though what was shame?
    The raptor's nest wherein they lay
    Bore witness to Her soft parade
    Of fingers come to grips

    His undivine attention won
    She deftly spun
    From 'neath His thrusts to writhe above
    In ecstasy
    Pendulous She swung
    As if her limbs imbibed His tongue
    To spill, as with His rod
    The secret name of God

    But no seed passed those fruitful lips
    For fearing Her who grasped, He slit
    Her throat from ear to where She fled
    With tail and blood between Her legsss...

    [Part II]

    So very kept was the virgin hand
    That brushed the treasures of Utopia
    And how the greed swept across the desert sands
    In late August just to measure Her

    This hallowed Eve, a creature of the moon
    A simple dish born with a silver spoon
    Giddy sniffing orchids that opened after dusk
    Incubus and Prudence, two such swoon to touch Her

    Restless as the skies
    Temptation, bloomed, found room to rise
    And snatching breaths between Her thighs
    He crawled to Eve...
    At dead of night, the sticky clime
    Smelt perfect to this serpentine
    This shining Angel
    Palled in mysteries...

    Her undivine attention won
    He deftly spun
    A web of for the one
    Great sacred tree
    Bejewelled and lit
    As if a thousand shades did flit
    About boughs of forbidden lore
    Hidden for the want of more

    And when seeds passed those fruitful lips
    And Mankind basked in vast eclipse
    A Devil shot of thin disguise
    Surmised to better paradise


    8. Carrion

    Lurking in the shade
    Of dark and fragrant trees
    Shirking from the rage
    That tore the heavens free
    A vagrant Angel
    His with span to see
    The garden swell with terrors
    To banish man and Eve

    Another fall from grace
    Whiplashed from the gates
    Half-naked and insane
    Full-blooded, breasted
    Nerve ends tested
    To behests of pain

    A sombre lot to gain

    A storm slid in
    Borne by carnal winds
    The upper ether thinned
    And therein sat abominations

    Satan seated there
    Savouring the reek of desolation
    Their dank despair
    Moved His speech to leech the air

    "Behold the golden door
    To paradise is lost
    So praise Me as you raised your Lord
    And I shall thaw this gnawing frost"

    Another fall from grace
    Whiplashed from the gates
    Half-naked and insane
    And destined for a spiteful Fate
    Wherein evil sought the shamed
    As pawns in greater stakes
    Across this cosmic game
    To win the hand
    Of darkness and
    Set Her in her rightful place

    "Cursed is the ground for thy sake; in sorrow thou shalt eat of it all the days of thy life; Thorns also and thistles shall bring it forth to thee; and thou shalt eat the herb of the field; In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it was thou taken: for dust thou art and unto dust shalt thou return."
    [Genesis 3:17-19]

    At the throat of the human race
    With claws engorged and poised to rake
    With that the pact was sealed
    And as creation reeled
    Bewitched oration filled
    The hearts of all
    Who came to crawl
    Upon these earthen fields

    A sombre lot to till

    A wracked black acid song
    Spat from the massive throng
    Of Seraph knelt along
    The deep red welt to domination

    The deep red welt to domination


    9. The Mordant Liquor Of Tears

    [Instrumental]


    10. Presents From The Poison-Hearted

    Reigning at the feast of Phantasia
    Heightened pleasures were endeavoured to bow
    Before My coronation and vocal aspirations
    To rule this fool creation fallen 'neath me now

    I knew deep eyes
    Of a distant Christ
    Were scarred from afar under starry lustre

    Sighting my recitals on the rites of vice
    Perverting Virtue
    Enslaving grace
    Behind the glittering mask of pride
    Saving face finding thorns to pierce His side

    Desire, the fire
    Spread hell throughout my soul
    And higher the wire
    The more I sought control

    Straining from the leash in exultation
    Head to the wind to breathe with ravenous lungs
    The global scent of fornication
    A writhe of many vipers deciphering tongues

    I whispered schemes to dreamers then
    To pursue an Eden
    That screamed of me supreme again
    As my world bloomed
    So too the moon
    Through Adam to Seth, Enos, Cainan
    Mahalaleel and Jared blew
    Perverting virtue
    Enslaving grace
    Behind the slippery guise of lies
    Saving face making waves to drown their faith

    Messiahs, Pariahs
    Aeons reversed the two
    This higher, their spires
    The more cursed grew their roots
    And suffering...

    I swept cruel seas
    On the galley of the shadow of death

    A fist in the cunt of the spread horizon
    A kiss for the sun risen red once dines on
    The coast of Menses

    Discharged from celestial wombs
    A first degree murder of ravens
    Followed in fugue through the crack of doom

    The Goat of Mendes
    I set regime
    In the galley of the shadow of death...

    Angels in raiments
    As pure as coal
    Taking their payments
    In tortured mortal souls
    A bold direction
    The abyss edge
    But on cold reflection
    One they warmed to nonetheless

    As they preyed the paths of the righteous
    Through the myth of thistled orchard floors
    Bearing gifts of plenitude, for
    The apples of the Lord were rotten to the core

    Temptation, my ambassador

    Attila, Hesiod, Pharisees and Nero
    All begged of Me for more

    Down dark steps of history
    I waged war with a heaven
    I could not see...
    Beyond my wildest fantasies

    Throwing sixes over deadly sin
    I traded whose who played to win
    Skin for precious kin...
    And that that wormed within

    Staining the reams of revelation
    Etching ever-afters in accursed verse
    The limpid rags of resurrection
    From papal parapets were to dirt dispersed
    Desire, the flyers
    Spread hell throughout their souls
    And higher the fire
    The more I held control


    11. Doberman Pharaoh

    To and fro, through freeze and thaws
    From zenith to nadir
    The universal tug of war
    Saw lines drawn in the sands appear
    Divisions of a promised land
    And Hell for those that dwelt
    Beneath a Pharaoh's granite hand
    Where death wed something else

    Millennia swam passed
    Since the covened Ark
    Ran aground on Ararat...

    But anew, tempered shadows grew
    Out of Midian, strewing fear
    Over verdant lawns, the resurgent storms
    Led a desert son to sear

    From the palace orchard I espied...
    (Where swooning trees and moonless beams vied
    For the painted eye of the royal bride
    Whose gliding curves were deified)
    ...beyond Her grace where love would die
    Wretched destiny arrive

    Back and forth the prophet came
    Riddled with a tongue of plagues
    That would render might Egypt lame
    If the rage of God stayed unassuaged...
    I listened with a heavy heart
    But unveiled to the threats
    This Hebrew in a jackal's mask
    Would dredge into effect

    Thenceforth the Nile reddened
    s if Set stretched His hand
    To beset the damned

    And bruised with flies
    The skies grew leadened

    But these miracles, feared
    Were all but reared
    By nature, whose law alone
    Stood that revered

    This hysteria passed, but still the mark
    Of Yahveh burned on in the dark

    One final time, on the steps to the shrine
    Of Thoth, I twined with fate
    "Let my people go"
    "Still my word is no"
    "Then Death shall be the deciding plague"

    Since the crimes divine I left behind
    I'd warred with every tribe that plied
    In holy vestament, but with time
    Bored sore of clawing what was mine
    I laid my bones and made my throne
    With a view to paradise

    Thenceforth the heavens deafened
    As if great beasts
    Were unleashed to feast on man

    And with carrion span
    Michael was weaponed

    To descend with scorn
    A dark reform
    Through Pi-Ramses
    Skinning mine and Her firstborn

    Thus suspiria passed each sacred mark
    Of Yahveh, bleeding in the dark

    With nauseous dawn, a cry, forlorn
    Unified from plazas deep
    The prophet's curse
    Far worse had worked
    To wrest the war in me from sleep

    Drowned in light, a downward light
    Bathed the snaking exodus
    Through the wilderness
    As the Aeons crept
    Impressed with fresh bloodlust


    12. Babalon A.D. (So Glad For The Madness)

    I bled on a pivotal stretch
    Like a clockwork Christ
    Bears sore stigmata, bored

    And as I threw Job, I drove
    Myself to a martyred wretch
    To see if I drew pity
    Or pretty litanies from the Lord

    So the plot sickened
    With the coming of days
    Ill millennia thickened
    With the claret I sprayed
    And though they saw red
    I left a dirty white stain
    A splintered know in the grain
    On Eden's marital aid

    So glad for the madness

    I walked the walls naked to the moon
    In Sodom and Babylon
    And through rich whores and corridors
    Of the Vatican
    I led a sordid Borgia on

    I read the Urilia text
    So that mortals wormed
    As livebait for the dead

    And as I broke hope, I choked
    Another pope with manna peel
    Dictating to DeSade
    In the dark entrails of the Bastille
    And as he wrote, I smote
    A royal blow to the heads of France
    And in the sheen of guillotines
    I saw others, fallen, dance

    I was an incurable
    Necromantic old fool
    A phagadaena that crawled
    Drooling over the past
    A rabid wolf in shawl
    A razor's edge to the rule
    That the stars overall
    Were never destined to last

    So glad for the madness

    I furnaced dreams, a poet, for of sleep
    Turning sermons with the smell
    On Witchfinder fingers
    Where bad memories lingered
    Burning, as when Dante
    Was freed to map Hell

    I sired schemes and the means
    To catch sight of the seams
    And the vagaries inbetween...

    And midst the lips and the curls
    Of this cunt of a world
    In glimpses I would see
    A nymph with eyes for me

    Eyes of fire that set all life aflame
    Lights that surpassed art
    In sight, that no intense device of pain
    Could prise their secrets from my heart

    I knew not her name
    Though her kiss was the same
    Without a whisper of shame
    As either Virtue or Sin's
    And pressed to Her curve
    I felt my destiny swerve
    From damnation reserved
    To a permanent grin...

    So glad for the madness


    13. A Scarlet Witch Lit The Season

    [Instrumental]


    14. Mannequin

    Burning flesh,
    Dripping sweat,
    Using them all,
    like the paralyzing snake,
    Charmed and enchanted by the babylon whore.

    Led to other worlds
    By the girls she curled within
    I took their skins to see Her
    Be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin

    I cannot remember
    How it was that we first met
    Curve of moon and haunted shore
    The stars were not those Heaven sent

    Did we come together
    At masked palatial Balls
    In silks and flesh and leather
    Or did we come at all?
    I dreamt a midnight castle
    The eerie song of wolves
    And eyes that danced with fire
    As they have forever more

    Our rites of sin
    Have long fathered a hymn
    To burden Him
    Whom by slip of after whim
    At genesis
    Dressed Her like the wind
    In Autumn gowns
    That pinned Her down
    To be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin

    Always poised on winter
    But never would She break
    My lovecraft and black witch heart
    That pounded in Her wake

    We kissed on distant balconies
    A law unto Her own
    Thirteenth dark commandment
    Of figures pressed to stone
    Turning cream with fantasies
    That God alone would know
    We graced vomitorium
    With the sweet excess of Rome

    Flagrant in the past
    Our names were deeply carved On the tree of life in long dead languages

    Led to other worlds
    By the girls she curled within
    I took their skins to see Her
    Be my mannequin

    Be my mannequin

    I tongued the nuns at Louviers
    But not one word possessed
    Her divine right, an archetype
    For mortal Goddesses...


    15. Thank God For The Suffering

    I, I still recall, the first fullmoon of May
    'Neath whose rays we lay together
    And those bright nights on glassy waves
    When we would glide lightly away
    From the grain
    For wicked flights of pleasure

    Those visions fade
    Like ghosts to life's parade
    Though incisions once made her so vivid
    A scarlet whore
    With both heels in the door
    Of a heaven severed from me, insipid

    And midst the writhe of parapets
    Where angels sigh, lonely she sits
    Upon the lip
    Only a slip from whence I beg Her

    That I would wish
    Her kiss a chrysalis
    To break to make my fluttered heart amiss
    And in those frozen moments won
    From grief that creeps to wreathe the sun
    in drapes inwove with deathshead wing
    I thank God for the suffering

    Love would have conquered all
    But for the Rapture
    That ancient plan for my defeat
    Denied Faith skies that would have set Her free
    It seems again dreams wend to capture

    Once dancing in a spotlit waltz
    Through shadowed dimension
    Given to the rivers that bedizened Her eyes
    The world drifted by in lost momentum

    With no divine intervention

    Regardless that the author
    Of sin was me and I
    Lay chaste of hate in Faith's embrace
    As Mortals warred with more besides

    They warred with life itself

    And in those frozen moments won
    From grief that creeps to wreathe the sun
    In drapes inwove with deathshead wing
    I thank God for the suffering

    And I thank God for the suffering
    As still I burn
    For Her return
    I would make my peace with everything

    I, I still recall, the first fullmoon of May
    Consigned to flames like secret letters
    And midst the writhe of parapets
    Where angels sigh, lonely she sits
    Upon the lip
    Only a slip from whence I beg her

    That I would wish
    Her kiss a chrysalis
    To break to make my fluttered heart amiss
    And in those frozen moments won
    From grief that creeps to wreathe the sun
    In drapes inwove with deathshead wing
    I thank God for the suffering

    Love would have conquered all
    Were we not parted
    Her splintered loss rekindles rage
    The winter frost dwindles across my stage
    Lit up once more to score finales started

    Love would have conquered all
    Love would have conquered...
    Hate


    16. The Smoke Of Her Burning

    Earth and sea cower from my screams
    As I climb into the skies
    Atop sins towered heaven high for me
    From whence I see no reason why
    I should not smite with vengeance
    And hurl thieves down from paradise
    For storms before were as nothing more
    Than a breeze next to this night

    I am Methuselah of the Tribulation
    The Moonchild come to harm
    A riot of stars shaken from their station

    The choking smoke of Jerusalem burning
    Six vices become wrath

    And though half-blind with ravening
    Like Phineus now I see
    The end declared from the beginning
    Love won through my defeat
    But now I fear I will never peer
    On Her radiance again
    I shall glimpse instead, the slurried red
    Of faces pressed to bloodstained panes

    Betrayed and played by God
    Who alone but He
    Scapegraced and goated me?
    Now I wish to piss on His parade

    Angels, clawed with burnished wings
    Still loyal, kiss the seal
    Bent on knees and harrowing
    Promise overkill

    Know that you shall die like whores
    And the cries of your writhings shall rise
    To please their Lord...
    So before the sword
    Side with me in slaughter

    I am Methuselah of the Tribulation
    The Moonchild come to harm
    The spoken horns of desolation

    Drink the pouring of my fury
    Those darkened waters spur
    The brink of war as my judge and jury
    And rapist executioner
    Our time is short, the horsemen ride
    A foul-breathed chora howls, besides
    Damnation and a day has passed
    This divine right to genocide

    Weld the gates to heaven shut
    The abyss leers in hissing ruts
    Unhilt the black grimoire of death
    Inscribe all names that God has left

    I lived the dream of nymph and men
    But now the nightmares come again

    Now the nightmares come again...


    17. End Of Daze

    "And the Earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep"
