Cradle Of Filth lyrics : "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

Drowning out the past

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