--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
We, the nocturnal few
bound by other laws
to the service of the enemies of god
are silent and hidden
yet our exquisite fire burns on
poised to engulf...

Tie a man to his god
he may not walk for fear
of falling foul to temptation
where once faith stood her ground

Renounce the guilt, ignite the flame
cast the fetid virgin back from where she came
drink deep of the promise in my eyes...
Of mist and midnight skies

I drown in fathomless dreams
and in the reeking mire of virtue scream
I yearn to sell my very soul
(And you shall
for none so dark and sinister
will arise to embrace the Arts)
Do What Thou Wilt
until the stones in my heart stand still
regardless of the cost to your repugnant god

The late May frost may blight the crops
and will never be ascribed to the heavenly dog
or nature, but infernal tasks...
"By your cursings and imprecations
you wrong both Man and beast
by whatever whim you serve
of the Devil your leige"

Tie belief to the trinity, and seven ways
will be wrought to condemn thee
conspiring to cull the pagan ways

Twist back their lies, personify their needs
the war begins by Satanic decree
if Evil we be, we will our lives...
To mist and midnight skies

(I will avenge the deaths of a thousand burning children)

Be bound to a covenant with us in our hellish league
and bring the host of the nazarine to their knees
breath the life of an entity never-born
darkness now descend in raven form
the words, the burning rasp, vibrate the cosmic thread
Arcturus is risen Queen, hold forth the severed head to me

I pour my lovelorn kisses at your feet
raper of all my worldy enemies

Lycanthropy, please poison me
send acausal instincts crawling through my brain
take me, Mistress, until perversion is fed
Dark Magick pleasures weaved under the jewelled moon-head
the cross stick will fade when the usurper hangs
for now we congregate where once my angel sang

That night they came and took her away from me
I lost the woman I loved and I learned how to curse
and to spit in the face of their... "god"

We will ride again
in the midnight skies

    General Commentthis song, in my opinion, is honestly very powerful when you listen to it. as in all of COF's songs, there are so many layers and dimensions in their music.. from the basics, to piano, strings, high screaming voices, deep voices layering each other.. so unique.. like nothing i have ever heard before. this is real musical talent.

    General Commentyes cos he's refering to god as Jesus. about the meaning of the song ive picked up a bit of a grasp of wot he's on about. i think he's basically saying choose satan instead of god, because no good ever comes out of trusting your faith............. or something along the lines of that.

    General CommentUm, kind of stupid how he started cursing God just because some "Christians" killed his lover or whatever. Obviously they weren't real Christians if they would do such a thing, and so God nor Jesus have nothing to do with the loss of his love, do they? At least these lyrics were written with some effort though, as opposed to Slayer or something. The lyrics in this song are probably among my least favorite written by Dani. Oh and their whole little motto, "Do what thou wilt".... too bad Dani would freak out if a pedophile did what he wanted near his daughter.

    General Commentkandy, way to show your ignorance. He is speaking of inquisition, hence "I will avenge the deaths of a thousand burning children". And the woman he loved was a "witch" and most likely was burnt too. Lyrics are quite trivial in their meaning, but nevertheless they are very well written and the music is superb.

    I swear I think that is what he says. Still an amazing song.
