Presents from the Poison-Hearted Lyrics

10. Presents from the Poison-Hearted (6:19)
Reigning at the feast of Phantasia
Heightened pleasures were
Endeavoured to bow
Before My coronation and vocal
Aspirations
To rule this fool creation fallen
‘neath me now

I knew deep eyes
Of a distant Christ
Were scarred from afar under starry
Lustre
Sighting my recitals on the rites of vice
Perverting Virtue
Enslaving grace
Behind the glittering mask of pride
Saving face finding thorns to pierce
His side

Desire, the fire
Spread hell throughout my soul
And higher the wire
The more I sought control

Straining from the leash in exultation
Head to the wind to breathe with
Ravenous lungs
The global scent of fornication
A writhe of many vipers deciphering
Tongues

I whispered schemes to dreamers then
To pursue an Eden
That screamed of me supreme again
As my world bloomed
So too the moon
Through Adam to Seth, Enos,
Cainan
Mahalaleel and Jared blew
Perverting virtue
Enslaving grace
Behind the slippery guise of lies
Saving face making waves to drown
Their faith

Messiahs, Pariahs
Aeons reversed the two
Thus higher, their spires
The more cursed grew their roots
And suffering

I swept cruel seas
On the galley of the shadow of death

A fist in the cunt of the spread horizon
A kiss for the sun risen red once
Dined on
The coast of Menses

Discharged from celestial wombs
A first degree murder of ravens
Followed in fugue through the crack
Of doom
The Goat of Mendes
I set regime
In the galley of the shadow of death

Angels in raiments
As pure as coal
Taking their payments
In tortured mortal souls
A bold direction
The abyss edge
But on cold reflection
One they warmed to nonetheless
As they preyed the paths of the
Righteous
Through the myth of thistled
Orchard floors
Bearing gifts of plenitude, for
The apples of the Lord were rotten to
The core

Temptation, My ambassador

Attila, Herod, Pharisees and Nero
All begged of Me for more

Down dark steps of history
I waged a war with a Heaven
I could not see
Beyond My wildest fantasies

Throwing sixes over deadly sin
I traded those who played to win
Skin for precious skin
And that that wormed within

Staining the reams of revelation
Etching ever-afters in accursed verse
The limpid rags of resurrection
From papal parapets were to dirt
Dispersed
Desire, the flyers
Spread Hell throughout their souls
And higher the fire
The more I held control
