Cradle Of Filth lyrics : "The Smoke Of Her Burning"

Earth and sea cower from my screams
As I climb into the skies
Atop sins towered heaven high for me

From whence I see no reason why
I should not smite with vengeance
And hurl thieves down from paradise

For storms before were as nothing more
Than a breeze next to this night


I am Methuselah of the Tribulation
The Moonchild come to harm
A riot of stars shaken from their station


The choking smoke of Jerusalem burning
Six vices become wrath


And though half-blind with ravening
Like Phineus now I see

The end declared from the beginning
Love won through my defeat
But now I fear I will never peer

On Her radiance again
I shall glimpse instead, the slurried red
Of faces pressed to bloodstained panes


Betrayed and played by God
Who alone but He

Scapegraced and goated me?
Now I wish to piss on His parade


Angels, clawed with burnished wings
Still loyal, kiss the seal
Bent on knees and harrowing

Promise overkill

Know that you shall die like [email protected]^%s

And the cries of your writhings shall rise
To please their Lord...
So before the sword

Side with me in slaughter

I am Methuselah of the Tribulation

The Moonchild come to harm
The spoken horns of desolation


Drink the pouring of my fury
Those darkened waters spur
The brink of war as my judge and jury

And rapist executioner
Our time is short, the [email protected]&( ride
A foul-breathed chora howls, besides

Damnation and a day has passed
This divine right to genocide


Weld the gates to heaven shut
The abyss leers in hissing ruts
Unhilt the black grimoire of death

Inscribe all names that God has left

I lived the drams of nymphs and men

But now the nightmares come again

Now the nightmares come again...
