Nymphetamine Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level Mefisto       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Satyriasis (Intro) (1:41)
Glory and praise to thee in all the steeps
Of Heaven where thou didst reign, and in the deeps
Of Hell where fallen thy dream, silently.
2. Gilded Cunt (4:07)
Your misery is worn as a veil
To hide bewitchment of the ugliest kind
In place of Eve a bitter parody hails
Daggers from the swagger
Of a sodomite's concubine
Bine

Gilded cunt
Oh, you gilded cunt

Your thin pretence overstretched and sickly
Feigns love and light a long time laid in the grave
My preference leans to killing you quickly
Scissored in the gizzard
That a heart no more maintains

But I am tied
To the labyrinth and the beast
The one way track of eyes
Black and grey like panzers

Loose your shell
Shoot the mouth
The gates of hell
Have often dropped their jaws about
Satan's agents are perversions to bear
Side to side with the diversions
You use to guide my fingers there

Dirty little gold digger
Dirty little gold digger
Dirty little gold digger

Dirty little gold digger
Dirty little gold digger
Dirty little gold digger

Cunt (Cunt)
Gilded cunt
Oh, you gilded cunt
Cunt
Cunt

Nothing is above you save a boreal light
That halo paid for by a consummated ring of ice
And below you, will I see you tonight?
Glower from your tower
Built of ivory and spite

For I am torn
Between the sheets that keep me borne
And the teeth of a storm
That reap then rend my stanzas

Click your heels
Three times six
The stars are fixed
May I climb and get you one?
The palace at Versailles never held your tongue
Nor did heaven ever weather
The crosses that you came upon

Dirty little soul frigger
Dirty little soul frigger
Dirty little soul frigger

Dirty little soul frigger
Dirty little soul frigger
Dirty little soul frigger

Cunt (Cunt)
Gilded cunt
Oh, you gilded cunt
Cunt
Cunt
3. Nemesis (7:17)
Tonight is the night
The empowering wind that draws breath from despite
Roars 'neath my wings as I soar with the end in sight

Choirs ignite
A swansong for Leda
Deathknells for Troy
Tragedy blooms from one act
I am nemesis

Poured in my arms
When my daughter's eyelids closed
I swore to slaughter those
Who stole my ray of moonlight

So strike up the skies
The diction of thunder
God-given rites
No fiction can deafen the fact
I am nemesis

Cowled in the utter grief
I am the priest of a new disorder
Whose flag unfurled
Bears a hatred for the western world

The is no compromise
No piped lament
To stay the blind
Just a shrike cacophony of war

Ashes ember, fires rise
No longer am I paralysed
Now I drown in a loss worth fighting for

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis
Nemesis
Nemesis

Tonight is the night
The city sweats fever, the filth in her womb
Shifts like the season's unease at the hands of doom

Restless inside
Her split underbelly
Suitored with flies
Martial bowels now contract
I am nemesis

Poured in my arms
When my daughter's eyelids closed
I swore to slaughter those
Who stole my ray of moonlight
Never again
Our enemies entertained
I toy at the clasp of her chain
And remember the fight

Cowled in utter grief
I am the priest of a new disorder
Whose flag unfurled
Bears a hatred for the western world

There is no compromise
No piped lament to stay the blind
Just a shrike cacophony of war

Ashes ember, fires rise
No longer am I Palestined
Now I drown in a loss worth fighting for

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis

Black is my heart
Black is my heart
Black is my heart
I am nemesis
Nemesis
4. Gabrielle (5:27)
Foul snake despair
Where once you darkened gardens
Another coils there
Where twice you sliced all hope from me
And left these present stars
An insane love now burns above
The weft of incandescent stars

Hilt your dripping fangs that range
Skywards to rend apart
I might have sang of wings unchained
But long before I locked my heart

For Gabrielle
A fit and perfect stitch of foreign parts
Whose beauty fostered poets
Whose laugh like silver bells
Thawed your bitter winter from my path

Gabrielle

Foul snake despair
Where once you peddled secrets
Another spoils there
With speech that sweetens drowning
In deep lagoons of eyes
And legs that begged aplogies
For lengths they mesmerised

Spare your hissing sentiments
For Her fee welts more than thine
Though no malice She weans
Just a palace of dreams
Where windswept chambers pine

For Gabrielle
Whose hair of spun onyx is run with gold
Her rouge lips smack of dark blood
Her name in whisper rolls
Forever on my tongue
Lest her memory dissolve

Gabrielle

Once crucified
I would have died
A thousand more times
Just to feel her breath
On my neck as a fervent lover
To drown her sighs
In floods of tears so well refined
And blind from spying Her
In the arms of others...

Buried inside
Where She's all but mine
Save for those that dine
On Her perfect carcass

Gabrielle

Foul snake despair
Where once you wreaked my misery
Another toils there
For long lost Gabrielle
Whose nightly spreading grin
Persists in other faces
By whom I'm slowly taken in
5. Absinthe with Faust (5:14)
Pour the emerald wine
Into crystal glasses
We will touch the divine
Through kissed catharsis

Let us pitch to the seven-year itch
Of the ultra-decadent
To a tainted world and the painted girls
That our fantasies spent

Tripping through boudoirs laced with opium themes
Sipping the bizarre, tasting copious dreams
A toast to those most sacrilegious of days
Where for every whim won
One soon repays

We touched the stars
That now laugh from afar
At we, the damned
The damned
The damned
The damned

We have spent our time
Drenched in opulent splendour
But when midnight chimes
Will gilded souls surrender?

Let us drink on the giddying brink
Of pools of excrement
All manner of shit for the glamour and glitz
Mephistopheles lent

I remember the night as if it were engraved
A bright marble bridge stretched across dark waves
To the shore from the moon and by Her grace
Came that erudite stranger
That fucker

He was a predator, creditor cold
Our blood was young on the yellowing scrolls
And all that glittered was not gold
But we wanted everything
And for it all lost our souls

Come my friend, to fate let's raise
Two finger shots at this our last soiree
For tomorrow I fear
Swoops all too deadly near
This precipitous weir to Hell's high gate

We touched the stars
That now laugh from afar
At we, the damned
The damned
The damned
The damned

He was a preditor, creditor cold
Our blood was young on the yellowing scrolls
And all that glittered was not gold
But we wanted everything
And for it all lost our souls
Our souls
6. Nymphetamine (Overdose) (9:14)
Evanescent like the scent of decay
I was fading from the race
When, in despair, my darkest days
Ran amok and forged Her face
From the fairest of handmaidens to
A slick perverted wraith

Nymphetamine

Heaving midst narcissus
On a maledict blanket of stars
She was all three wishes
Sex, sex, sex

A lover hung on her deathrow
I was hooked on Her disease
Highly strung like Cupid's bow
Whose arrows hungered meat
And the blinding flare of passion
In the shade of narrow streets
Where their poison never rationed
All the tips they left in me

Two tracks
Bric-a-brac
Something passed between us
Like a bad crack
Upward-lit
I'd met another kind

Of rat
In fact
With every Rome inside
Licked and ransacked...
She haunted at the corners of my mind

In black
Cataracts
Wouldn't whitewash away
Her filthy smoke stack
She burnt me like a furnace
For my future suicide

Lead to the river
Midsummer, I waved
A V of black swans
On with hope to the grave
And through Red September
With skies fire-paved
I begged you appear
Like a thorn for the holy ones

Cold was my soul
Untold was the pain
I faced wen you left me
A rose in the rain...
So I swore to the razor
That never, enchained
Would your dark nails of faith
Be pushed through my veins again

Bared on your tomb
I am prayer for your loneliness
And would you ever soon
Come above unto me?
For once upon a time
From the binds of your lowliness
I could always find
The right slot for your sacred key...

Six feet deep is the incision
In my heart, that barless prison
Discolours all with tunnel vision
Sunsetter...
Nymphetamine
Sick and weak from my condiion
This lust, this vampyric addiction
To Her alone in full submission
None better...
Nymphetamine

Wracked with your charm
I am circled like prey
Back in the forest
Where whispers persuade
More sugar trails
More white lady laid
Then pillars of salt...
(keeping Sodom at bay)

Fold to my arms
Hold their mesmeric sway
And dance out to the moon
As we did in those golden days

Christening stars
I remember the way
We were needle and spoon
Midlais in the burning hay

Bared on your tomb
I am prayer for your loneliness
And would you ever soon
Come above unto me?
For once upon a time
From the binds of your lowliness
I could always find
The right slot for your sacred key...

Six feet deep is the incision
In my heart, that barless prison
Discolours all with tunnel vision
Sunsetter...
Nymphetamine
Sick and weak from my condiion
This lust, this vampyric addiction
To Her alone in full submission
None better...
Nymphetamine

Two tracks
Bric-a-brac
Something passed between us
Like a bad crack
Upward-lit
I'd met another kind

Of rat
In fact
With every Rome inside
Licked and ransacked...
She haunted at the corners of my mind

In black
Cataracts
Wouldn't whitewash away
Her filthy smoke stack
She burnt me like a furnace
For my future suicide

8. Medusa and Hemlock (4:43)
Dim the lights, wrong the rites
Toss the peurile cross away
We are gashing from a venomous womb

Burning bright, dead of night
Pyres stain a milky way
Lust is splashing the dark face of the moon

In the Samhain mist
We lay in welcome by the western gate
With the five fold kiss
For every soul returning
From the fecund abyss
Where nature's travesties congregate
With a stone cold wish
To see the wickermen burning

The wind, she whispers
Through the graveyards of our hearts...
Wreathed in dreams
As she weaves Her witchcraft
We breathe, enamoured
Of the conquering dark

Medusa and Hemlock

Harvest past, fires cast
Ashen shades this Hallowe'en
We are Set now to Beherit the earth

Widdershins, death begins
To fashion fete from gallow scenes...
Spirits rising to discredit rebirth

In the Samhain mist
We lay in welcome by the western gate
With the five fold kiss
For every soul returning
From the fecund abyss
Where nature's travesties congregate
With a stone cold wish
To see the wickermen burning

The wind, she flitters
Through the forests of our hearts...
Wreathed in leaves
As she weaves her witchcraft
We breathe, enamoured
Of the conquering dark

I will trace the knot of serpents in your hair
Plot your face, then ascending marble stars
You shall pluck me, masked, from roses-in-despair
Tasting my blood
That runs from worming tongue like prayer

Under pagan veneer snakes a fear
That makes the stars
Grieve, just to be
Uncharted on this Eve
When part of me chars a path
Through your heavely constellations

Medusa and Hemlock

Back to black, hinges crack
Rituals call obscenities
Sheets of demons rush insanity skies

Tread the salt, the dead exult
Preachers beg our clemency
Seeking warmth in inhumanity's eyes

We who kept the candle by the vault

We who kept the handle on the cult
9. Coffin Fodder (5:17)
The time has come
To rise again
Freedom lift thy sewered hem
Free from beasts and skewered men

My dreams unroll
Ten thousand fold
Their world will never take me
They will never desecrate my soul

The stars I have grasped
Are so far lonely constellations
And wishing on those stars
My spirit bars annihilation

From earthen miseries
Hosts of most fell forms of greed
Ghosts of pearly gate remissions

Forever haunting me
Slit the witch and watch him bleed
As with any inquisition

Lying from the start
The preachers plied their craft
Scoffing elder glories
And dying, I depart
To make their sunken hearts
Ao coffin for their stories

The time is past
To falter when
Freedom slips my sombre pen
And gates to wolves break them open then

My feelings may
Seem constant prey
But claws no more will rake me
Those whores have fled to darker days

Above and beyond
I have wronged my position
But now the winds are strong
To soar from Babel's vision

Of cutthroat jealousies
Dock to dock these mongrels breed
Dogs of fogged derision

Pacing, soon to be
Back to pack mentality
When my killing moon is risen

Trying from the start
These creatures of the dark
Were quaffing mourning glories
And dying, I depart
To make their drunken hearts
A coffin for their stories

Innovation in ovation
Imagination stirs

Somewhere the dusk is lining
Red the shore of a roaring sea
And though loved there someone is pining
For waves of blood to run and rescue me...

The time has come
To rise again
Freedom lift thy sewered hem
Freee from beasts and skewered men

My dreams unroll
Ten thousanbd folk
Their world will never take me
They will never desecrate my soul

Their world will never break me
They will never desecrate my soul
10. English Fire (4:45)
Seven brides serve me seven sins
Seven seas writhe for me
From Orient gates to R'lyeh
Abydos to Thessaly
And Sirens sing from stern
But now I cease to play
For I yearn to return
To woodland ferns
Where Herne and his wild huntress lay

Now the tidal are turning
Spurning the darkness
The great purgations of distinguished tours
Are but stills in time
To the thrill that I'm
Once more
Heading to the bedding
Of Her English shores

The wind bickered in Satanic mill sails
Eyes flickered in deep thickets of trees
And mists clung tight in panic to vales
When Brigania spoke Her soul to me

From Imbolg to Bealtaine
Lughnasadh to Samhain feasts
I heard Her laments as seasons blent
Together a chimerical beast

Now the tidal are turning
Churning in darkness
The celebrations of extinguished wars
Are but stills in time
To the chill the climbs
Once more
Dreading the red weddings
On Her English shores

Gone are the rustic summers of my youth
Cruel winters cut their sacred throats
With polishes scythes that reap worldwide
Pithc black skies and forest smoke

And the hosts that I saw there
Drones of carrion law
Drove the ghosts of my forbears
To rove and rally once more

One of Her sons from the vast far-flung
Come home to rebuild
The rampant line of the Leonine
Risen over pestilent fields

Now the fidal are turning
Burning the darkness
The salivation of the hungry sword
Shalt spill like wine
From the hills to the chines
That pour
Spreading her beheadings
On these English shores

For the hosts that I saw there
Drones of carrion law
Drove the ghosts of my forbears
To rove and rally once more

This is a waking for England
From its reticent doze
This is a waking for England
Lest hope and glory are regarded as foes
11. Filthy Little Secret (6:15)
There hides a secret
Deeply twined inside of Her mind
A tried and confined regret
That pines to fly south
To this mouth of mine

Pity

Too long have these emotions
Like potions, made me
A sole castellan
Trusted to keep
The weight of oceans
From Her rusted gatesof sleep

A dreaming angel
Lying curled in the circles of Hell
I must protect Her
Watch Her back for any cracks to occur
For in thwitching hour
She slips into the underworld
A pearled Persephone
Deflowered by the powers
That around Her
Drown Her
Whirl

Doomed to dam the rift
Across the shifting abyss
With Her body and its gift...
My filthy little secret

I serve Her slender hope
To preserve mankind from old ghosts
Disturbed though by recurring crimes
I sense that death
Might be the best for both

Pity

Too long have these emotions
Like potions, made me
A sole castellan
Posted to keep
Slow wheels in motions
For the human race to beat

Without Her there
My nympehtamine with the faraway stare
Thin walls would crumble
Horrors would corroborate from dogstar lairs
For in the dead of night
She spasms with orgasmic flare
This reamed Demeter
With poseidons there inside Her
Too appeased to grieve our air

Doomed to dam the rift
Across the shifting abyss
With het body and its gift...
My filthy little secret

Forever sworn to keep it
My filthy little secret

Pity

Too long this urchin priness
Has incensed, made me
A wanton felon
Searching for the key
To loose Her harness
And set desires lurching free

Without Her there
My nympehtamine with the faraway stare
Thin walls would crumble
Horrors would corroborate from dogstar lairs
But in Her room at night
I care not for the underworld
Slathering and gathering emboldened rechs
To brech, to teach
A dread thereafter

I would risk all this
For one minute of bliss
With Her body and its gift
My filthy little secret

Forever sworn to keep it
My filthy little secret

I know a deeper beauty shines
Beyond the veil
Her roots and creepers mine
As the worms beneath arise
12. Swansong for a Raven (7:08)
Forgive the day's
Last serenades
Her skies, they bruise like Nordic women
Deep crimson stains
That Death would claim
His robes of office swim in

As would I
For His dark eye
Has fixed, a basilisk, a scythe
On charred remains
With shared disdain
For those I chose to mortify

Thier cries
Have paralysed
And the smoke has choked these vistas
But I still lie
Though tears have dried
One the grave of my Clarissa

A verse for her whispered to the earth
(A lover's curse is a see-through coffin)
Praises Her curves so oft concurred

Though she was...
No Show White on the night she died
Her shadower's boon when the mooon glazed over
Lipped with blood and secrets pried

For on and in they spread Her wide
That seraph bride
The Devil's pride
Shalt soon avenge with swift reprise

But they would writhe
For my dark eye
Bewitched, was fixed like Mordecai's
On Esthers reign
And in this vein
I saw their lust still stain Her thighs

Their cries
Have paralysed
And the smoke has choked these vistas
But still I lie
Though the tears have dried
On the grave of my Clarissa

Beneath these trees where the mist enwreathes
Her spirit flees, seeing chains of toches
A fleeting kiss stirring leaves of poetry...

I was...
No dark knight, breaking men like ice
I was like a lyncahtrope until the moon glazed over
Lipped with blood and last goodbyes

Now I dream
Enwrapt in pure clouds of the sweetest oblivion
Where beauty streams
Freed from the teeth of those beasts that had come
To tear out Her spells
In red lettered cells
Wherein even the crown prince of Hell
Come out of His arrogant shell
Would flater to better

But Her face soon dispells
And as black feathers fells
From heaven's smoke
So I woke to insanity
Her exquisite corpse
Found fit for their sport
Of course
Would burn on the morrow with me...

And there on this night
Strung up in my sight
Naked she sways
Displayed fopr their vulgar delight

I scream through my bars at the stars
That for these cirimes of mine solace me

I will not fear the flame
That to passion are tame
Not neaarly the same searing pain
(I pray) as held sway upon losing Her
Nor the mettle of roars
That will settles like ashes and scores
As with our ghosts in the fog
When we both turn no more
13. Mother of Abominations (7:32)
Mother of abomoinations
Our Lady Overkill
Smothering the congregationg
Grips the cosmic wheel
A lover of acceleration
No mercy nor breaks applied
I see dead stars collide
In Her cold unflinching powerslide

Comets tear the skies
Gushing gtom a shattered silence
Never so alive
Like the rush of cum on nymphetamines
Minds so desanitised
Nightchords rung on a ladder of vilence
Darkness fantasised
Sleek and polished black

Instrumental in stripping gods
To neuter and mute their staves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft their future graves

Heavens above
Fear the Gorgon eyes of a new moon rising
Expect no love
When she enters your golden halls

Millenial the whore
Riding wide astride the horns of madness
Clarions forth the war
Spilling the wine of Her fornication
Perrenial the gore
Filling the lines between split nations
Seepinger under doors
In time tides force a wider crack

Mother of abominations
Our Lady Overkill
Smothering the congregation
Licks the royal milk

The scourge hangs at Her girdle
Death slathers 'neath Her heel
Seeking blood to curdle
When the gathered clouds reveal
Her roared abortive labour
Thighs slick with molten steels
Dripping into sabres
For vulcan spawn to wield

Instrumental in stripping gods
To neuter and lash Her slaves
Thereafter
Her laughter
Shalt sound aloft the crashing waves

Heavens above
Fear the gorgon eyes of a new caste rising
Expect no love
When they enter your golden halls
On sanguine floods
Hear the foregone cries of the last surviving
Skewered like doves
Outside these wailing walls
14. Nymphetamine (Fix) (5:02)
Lead to the river
Midsummer, I waved
A V of black swans
On with hope to the grave
And through Red September
With skies fire-paved
I begged you appear
