Funeral in Carpathia Lyrics

5. Funeral in Carpathia
Candelabra snuffed, prey - silhouette wedded
Nightfall take my hand
Seduce me with silky timbred limbs
Grant me thy dark command
Over the peaks framing tapestries
Of thick forest, dusk has filled
With Lucifugous kisses enwreathed in mist
Creeping like violations from the shadows
to kill

Is my love in vein
When thy tears bleed sweeter
Than a midsummer rain?
Bewinged, infested belfries
Toll o'er the sobbing throng
A writhe of lethargic,terrored nudes
Whipped and welted neath the barbed windsong...

I am He
The crowned and conquering darkness
Satan robed in ecumenical filth
Livid Bacchus sustained by bridal echelons of slyph

This wintry eve when the snow glistens deep
And sharpened turrets wed the jewelless skies
I shrug off the shroud of prenatural sleep
Embroided by these words Malaresia scribed

"Beauty slept and angels wept
For her immortal soul
In this repose, all evil chose
To claim her for their very own"

The pleasured dead speak of her
In necromatic tongue
When ambered daylights are done
Masturbating in their graves
On her zenith to ...come...

"Never leave me"

This catafalque night when awed stars report
Their absence from the heavenly brow
Crippled seraph shalt cower in illustrious courts
Whilst the cloaked maelstron resounds throughout

"How the storm it fulfills
My heart, though unhealed
Celestial knives ebonied
And wild woods thrill
Yet far fiercer still
Her lustre eviscerates me"

Priapic lovers twist in concert with her
Covenants are struck, jagged lightning fellates
The path towards the castle weary innocence takes

I rule as Master here
Where feral hordes impart my temper
Love sank wounded when I, betrayed
Saw death etch cruelly, ...upon my lineage

"Usher the spite seething Draconist
And commit this world to thy ancient

Erubescent veil descend
Psalmed sunset thus portends
And laid to rest, I now am blessed
With this darkness... Forever more
