Song Lyrics

oh - my dearest; the sweet music in the air -

albeit, daresay I, the lullaby of an everso dark sleep.

my precious,

likest thou what emergeth yon the distant?

the throbbing and breathing of life`s machinery!

wanion its oh so damndest soul!

with the devil-instrument it we shall reap,

after the banquet obscur`d in our thole,

its blood so lovingly across our faces smear

lord of carnage,

lady of carnage,

one funeral maketh many,

swarm God`s acres;

two indeed more:

blest treat of delight -

give praise for the blood it bled,

grant a rose for the dead!

grant a rose for the dead!

enraptur`d by the timeless beauty of the shadowsphere,

we two abide the overlook`d time of the watch.

make this cherish`d feast last

but until the new dawn ascendeth.

be still - harken the lure of night!

bale in each its damndest shadow,

clothe me in night, ne`er feel rue,

in its face, behold! naught save grue.

pray, ne`er come hither daylight!

wane to dust the wight,

velvet darkness, thee we ourselves bestow!

misery it in velvet fright
