Insane Clown Posse – Assassins Lyrics 10 years ago
"He was cubba, he was butter
Snatched his jewelry and ran"

should be...

"He was kind, but he was blind,
I snatched his jewelry and ran"

Cradle of Filth – Dirge Inferno Lyrics 11 years ago
Most of this song does have to do with the end of the world. Some parts remind me of what people say is going to be World War III.
"of legions pouring"
A legion is a large, trained military unit basically.

"now those caves become a garret"
a garret is a place of refuge or a watchtower (dont know what caves have to do with it, maybe citizens caught in the war are seeking shelter in caves?)

"overseeing endless barracks"
and obviously, a barracks is a place to house soldiers...

"as the waters turn to claret"
claret means "A dark or grayish purplish red to dark purplish pink."
it is also slang term for blood, so this suggests that the blood from dead bodies is getting into the river, and the body count is so enormous, thus turning it to this reddish color.

another thing thing that this song reminds me of is someone who gets so fed up with life that he goes insane. this is suggested in the following verse...

"kissing heaven spent,
he wipes lips free of his hectic discharge,
wishing to repent,
for the brute that ravaged free,
in slight hands beauty weeps,
conquest's deep methodical screwing,
hurt repeatedly,
like the world wound at his feet,"

and also..

"hissing malcontent,
he storms the skies on electric discharge,
pissing in contempt,
on the effigies of the weak,
killing all resolve,
the great beast simmers, his scarlet women,
spit their vitriol,
on the terrified face of peace,"
(pissing, in this context, refers to angering people, as in "to piss someone off")

Cradle of Filth – The Byronic Man Lyrics 11 years ago
alright, thanks, vampiratornheart. i'll have to check that out. does anyone know if its on a specific album?

Cradle of Filth – A Gothic Romance (Red Roses for the Devil's Whore) Lyrics 11 years ago
Cradle of Filth are definetly not emo. If they were to be labeled, they would fit into the 'gothic' crowd. Dimmu Borgir is a great band, but it is true that they come nowhere close to Filth. Dani and Dimmu's lead singer's vocals are completely different. I think Dimmu tries to overdo it a bit. Overall, great bands, though...

Cradle of Filth – Hell Awaits Lyrics 11 years ago
Great cover. Although some people may think that Dani Filth messed this song up, he did his best. It's very difficult to sing in his voice that quickly. I personally think he does a brilliant job..

Cradle of Filth – Hallowed Be Thy Name (Iron Maiden cover) Lyrics 11 years ago
You guys really don't know Cradle, do you? 1) Dani Filth is not a fag, over half of the Iron Maiden band is (literally). 2) Dani Filth does not need to 'clear his throat.' That is how it is meant to sound. 3) Bullshit if Bruce can scream better than Dani. Let me hear him break into one of Dani's mad howls, and we'll see how they match up.

Cradle of Filth – The Byronic Man Lyrics 11 years ago
This is pretty pathetic. What happened to the old Cradle? They went from hardcore black metal to this. It is still a very good album, but I do prefer their old style of music. I would have loved to hear Dani sing Valo's part. Why does he never sing clean? Does it really sound that bad?

Cradle of Filth – The Foetus Of A New Day Kicking Lyrics 11 years ago
"It’s true that Jesus cannot save
I worship from the grave
To put my double cross to shame"

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but it says "I'm rising from the grave."

Cradle of Filth – Cthulhu Dawn Lyrics 11 years ago
I love the guitar riffs in this song. I have learned the intro and it is quite easier than it sounds.

Cradle of Filth – Beneath The Howling Stars Lyrics 11 years ago
"Pounding upon the pauper ridge
Earshot of a hunched beldame
Elizabeth teased, would He dare to please
Such elderly loins enflamed?
To this He feigned a grim disdain
Playing to Her slayful eye
But the hag replied....
"This girl that chides
Will soon be as plagued with age as I"
Her consort laughed a plume of icy breath
For Elizabeth's grace could raise
A flag of truce in burning heaven
Or the dead from early graves
Yet still She seethed
This proud Snow Queen
Embittered with the cursed retort
And because He sought Her loves onslaught
He gutted the crone for sport"

Anyone like to comment on this part?

Cradle of Filth – Lord Abortion Lyrics 11 years ago
"I slit guts guts and free the moistest facces
Corrupt the corpse and seize the choicest pieces
Her alabaster limbs that dim the lit carnal grin
Vaginal skin to later taste and masturbate within"

First off, this part clearly discusses him murdering his victim, then cutting the body up.

"Dub Me Lord Abortion, the living dead
The bonesaw on the backseat
On this bitter night of giving head
A sharp rear entry, an exit in red
Lump in the throat, on My come choke
The killing joke worn thin with breath"

I believe that this part is talking about how he has sex with his victims before killing them. "a sharp rear entry, an exit in red" I think means the knife he used to kill the person with. A sharp rear entry(the stabbing) an exit in red(the knife covered in blood as it exited the body.
