Cradle of Filth

Cradle of Filth are an English extreme metal band that formed in Suffolk in 1991. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles. Their lyrical themes and imagery are heavily influenced… more »

Evanescent like the scent of decay 
I was fading from the race 
When, in despair, my darkest days 
Ran amok and forged Her face 
From the fairest of handmaidens to 
A slick perverted wraith 

Nymphetamine 

Heaving midst narcissus 
On a maledict blanket of stars 
She was all three wishes 
Sex, sex, sex 

A lover hung on Her deathrow 
I was hooked on Her disease 
Highly strung like Cupid's bow 
Whose arrows hungered meat 
And the blinding flare of passion 
In the shade of narrow streets 
Where their poison never rationed 
All the tips they left in me 

Two tracks 
Bric-a-brac 
Something passed between us 
Like a bad crack 
Upward-lit 
I'd met another kind 

Of rat 
In fact 
With every Rome inside me 
Licked and ransacked 
She haunted at the corners of my mind 

In black 
Cataracts 
Wouldn't whitewash away 
Her filthy some stack 
She burnt me like a furnace 
For my future suicide 

Lead to the river 
Midsummer, I waved 
A V of black swans 
On with hope to the grave 
And through Red September 
With skies fire-paved 
I begged you appear 
Like a thorn for the holy ones 

Cold was my soul 
Untold was the pain 
I faced when you left me 
A rose in the rain... 
So I swore to the razor 
Than never, enchained 
Would your dark nails of faith 
Be pushed through my veins again 

Bared on your tomb 
I am a prayer for your loneliness 
And would you ever soon 
Come above onto me? 
For once upon a time 
From the binds of your lowliness 
I could always find 
The right slot for your sacred key... 

Six feet deep is the incision 
In my heart, that barless prison 
Discolours all with tunnel vision 
Sunsetter... 
Nymphetamine 

Sick and weak from my condition 
This lust, this vampyric addiction 
To Her alone in full submission 
None better... 
Nymphetamine 

Wracked with your charm 
I am circled like prey 
Back in the forest 
Where whispers persuade 
More sugar trails 
More white lady laid 
Than pillars of salt... 
(keeping Sodom at night at bay) 

Fold to my arms 
Hold their mesmeric sway 
And dance out to the moon 
As we did in those golden days 

Christening stars 
I remember the way 
We were needle and spoon 
Mislaid in the burning hay 

Bared on your tomb 
I am a prayer for your loneliness 
And would you ever soon 
Come above onto me? 
For once upon a time 
From the binds of you're lowliness 
I could always find 
The right slot for your sacred key... 

Six feet deep is the incision 
In my heart, that barless prison 
Discolours all with tunnel vision 
Sunsetter... 
Nymphetamine 

Sick and weak from my condition 
This lust, this vampyric addiction 
To Her alone in full submission 
None better... 
Nymphetamine
