Cradle Of Filth lyrics : "Illicitus"

Forlornucopial the wealth of misery
And favoured haunts of sorrow hold no lure
Deep swathes of gloom

that once cocooned me in dark livery
Now clothed me in suits ill-borrowed from the pure


Alas it's true
The beast you knew
Found breath anew

In the heartstrings of love's $$#assin

She was a huntress

And an alabaster bride
A Venus not averse to taking sides


And in all my centuries
Bar Carmilla in cerise
Never had I fallen save for foolish pride


As we walked, our affrighted lanterns
Fed the lengthy shadows with their tallow lullabies

The fragrant night air chilled by sighted phantoms
Clouds drew cobweb threads across a sallow moonrise


Illicitus

So capricious


Superstitious to the point of philistine
The glue of secrecy grew paper thin

Her beauty so delicious
In the realm of the divine
The cross about her throat gave up to sin


In expectation
Her lips to find

The crates were blazing in my stone cold cellars

That traitor love

Once its spell ran headlong through my veins

Now I felt it roar again

Like an urge for murder
...Her kiss
The paradigm of bliss

Hot whispers on the wind
In swanlike curves I graced salvation


Amidst both world I promised her
Eternity would be beautiful


Yet on the cusp
I still not truly dared


Her eyes plied hard a burning will
Beseeching on her knees
Like Salome unfulfilled


I hung between two thieves
Guilt and spilt desire

Until that flame became a fire
All consuming


With strength renewed
I turned again
Death all lit up by my perfect victim


And she grew
The scourge of men

They hissed her name in perverted dictum

Now we walk, our cavorting auras

Feed the lengthy shadows with their sullen lullabies
The fragrant night air filled with haunting chorus
Clouds draw cobweb threads across a bloodied moonrise


Illicitus
