Inspired to mortal nightmare
Ebony dressed for sunset
In the dulcet whispers of the Damned

    General Commentthe lyrics are missing...

    unshadow thyselves children
    the reign in flesh begins again

    v-empire funureal majesty awake
    cnejna wreathed in snake
    drakonis talons rake

    so haunted is my silent heart
    dreaming only of the moon
    when velvet darkness falss tonight
    a thirst cretends a new
    only for you

    i think this song is about the awakening of evil. And the evil calls his children from their grave, exhumes in other word.

    does anybody know what "ebony" is? i read it as a "black tree" somewhere...

    General CommentThis song is simple. Though amazing and atmospheric. And Ebony is a reference to the color black. If you knew Dani's lyric writing well enough, or any other poet for that matter, they don't always use words in their fullest literal meaning.
    This song is simply an introduction into the dark theme of the EP. Which of course speaks of mysticism, vampirism, romance, and "The Rape and Ruin of Angels".

    General CommentNah, you misheard, he said "This song is dedicated to the mighty Sabbat". Sabbat are an 80s thrash metal band, one of Dani's main influences.

    General CommentAmazing introduction into the album. The Vempire album has the best lyrics by far out of all of the other albums by Cradle
