This is From The Cradle To Enslave

Two thousand fattened years like maniacs
Have despoiled our common grave
Now what necrophagous second coming backs
From the cradle to enslave

Sickle constellations
Stud the belts that welt the sky
Whilst the bitter winter moon
Prowls the cloud, dead-eyed
Like shifting parent flesh

Under silk matricide

Watchful as she was upon Eden
Where every rose arbour and orchard she swept
Hid the hissing of a serpent libido
In an ancient tryst with catastrophe
Soon the be kept

Hear that hissing now on the breeze
As through the plundered groves of the carnal garden
A fresh horror blows but ten billion souls
Are blind to see the rotting wood for the trees

This is the theme to a better Armageddon
Nightchords rake the heavens

And what use are prayers to that God?

As Devil's bay consensus for the space to piss
On your smouldering faith
And the mouldering face
Of this World long a paradise lost

This is the end of everything
Hear the growing chora that a new dawn shall bring

Danse macabre 'neath the tilt of the zodiac
Brighter stars shall reflect on our fate
What sick nativities will be freed when those lights burn black?
The darkside of the mirror always threw our malice back

I see the serpentine in your eyes
The nature of the beast as revelations arrive

Screams shall trail to Angels
For those damned in flames repay

All sinners lose their lot on Judgement Day
We should have cut our looses as at calvary
But our hearts like heavy crosses held the vain belief
Salvation, like a promised nation
Gleamed a claim away

This is the end of everything you have ever known
Buried like vanquished reason
Death is season
Buried like the drifting snow
Peace, a fragile lover, left us fantasising war
On our knees or another fucker's shore
Hailing new flesh
Read, then roared
To a crooked cross and a holy cause
What else be whipped to frenzy for?

This is the end of everything
Rear the tragedies
That the Seraphim shall sing

Old adversaries
Next to Eve
Now they're clawing back
I smell their cumming
As through webbed panes of meat
Led by hoary Death
They never left
Dreaming sodomies
Bled upon our knees

Tablatures of gravel law
Shall see Gehennah paved
When empires fall
And nightmares crawl
From the
From the cradle to enslave

I see your amusing yourselves now
(With your misses mate)
I don't think so; I think it looks more like your fucking misses
Except she has limbs
This is the last song for this evening
This is entitled Queen, Of Winter Throned
And before we continue
Eager little went wizard drummer
Just a late say thanks to everybody who came here tonight
To make this DVD something fucking special
Thanks once again goes to circus horrors
And Memleknolte
Let's fucking hear it one more time for them, come on!
This song is from the album "Lovecraft & Witch Hearts", "Live Bait For The Dead" and "From The Cradle To Enslave EP".
