I share Carmilla's mask
A gaunt mephitic voyeur
On the black side of the glass
Peering through the mirror
Deep dark and ominous
Consorting themes, demons I weave
Subservience from thee to lust

I am Corinthian light
Sharp-eyed, impassive whore
Burn the asafoetida
and rank petriachor
Lure me panthered Faustia
With cunt and veiled womb
To prowl thy inner sanctum walls
In Tirgoviste to resume

Seduction, my obsessive art
A pantheon of tragedies inscribed upon the stars
Like thistled ruin, garbed around thy heart
Bacchanal Cinderella, desirious midnight passed
Leaving thee as sacrifice asleep within my arms
'Midst dreams of robed redemption versed in sexual aftermath
When we ebb as tides together, carnal souls entwined
And orgasms expire, come puppet wires and the blind
Fires work in me
A lithe supremacy
I tear asunder heaven as I would all enemies
Impaler Lord
Flesh upon the sword
My lower lusts are sated, the greater herald war

I am thirst, spearheaded hunger
Sacrament and pain
Nails raked in savagery
When the cruel Countessa came

The Queen of death-white winter enthroned
Evil resplendent, in dusk red seething skies
Foam-flecked nightmares drag a moon
Of Draconian design

A love that never dies
Nefarious as her winds
Stirring silhouettes to rise

When stars fall pale
And to drown back in Her eyes
Is to madden ghosts within
To unhinge a thousand sins
From Death's dark vale

"Blessed be these spells of winter
Unto us that wait with patience in
This secret garden
To storm our way into another
As yes undone"


Desert claims Eden
And Hyperborean
Visions of Utopia are driven from the sun
Before thee angels clasped
In nakedness their ochre flesh
Shall yield to thy advance

She is all to me
Mysterious, alive
The howling in the deep woods
When cold festal stars aligned

A lurid moon looms; phosphorent, evil
Yesod vested in despotic upheaval
Silvering wolves that scarlet forest snow
Forgotten ones enter as above, so below

The trees groan aghast as ghostly pallored clouds are rent
When the drunken earth heaves, sweep aside seas to ascend
From Sheol's dank haunted wilderness
Thy seal upon Nuit's starry vault to incense the sleepers, dead

Queen of Winter, throned
The murderess lurked in vulgar caresses
Vestal masturbation
(Purity) Overthrown

In raven feathered dress
Sides with Death at chess
Their pawns are many and the enemy
When the miscreants fell dead
She took to conjuring spells in the cusp of the night
And the bestial floor shook with terrible life
I rise before thee Queen
To feed our lusts on the blood of the weak
To rule heaven and worlds crawling beneath
Satanic Tyranny

    General CommentQueen Jadis, The White Witch is a jinn/giant from the city of Charn, which was part of a dying world. She is also the self-proclaimed queen of Narnia, her reason being that she is part human, knowingly untrue. Ruling with an iron fist, she had placed a spell on Narnia so that it is forever winter but never Christmas. She frequently turns to stone those she believes traitors. Her magic wand can turn people and animals to stone. The White Witch's only fear is of the prophecy that tells of "two sons of Adam" and "two daughters of Eve" who will come to Narnia and ally with Aslan to overthrow her. (She is first shown in The Magician's Nephew.)

    General CommentIt could be Queen of Winter, Beira it could be about the Norse Goddess Skadi or it could be a metaphor about a cold, malicious and beautiful woman. The sound at this beginning and 'A Dream of Wolves in Snow' suggests it has a Nordic connection and a winter themed one at that. It could be just about any dark feminine character or even allegorical to characters he already uses. Perhaps an almalgamation. But his own pictorial on her.

    General CommentOr read Chronicles of Narnia, haven't in 10 years. The evil winter witch resembles the lyrics. But remember the songs are complex so it may just be about nothing. :)

    General CommentTo be totally honest I laughed so so hard when I first heard this song.
    The tears were literally streaming down my face as I fell to the floor...
    Then I listened to it again, and again and again.
    I watched this Anime called Vampire Hunter D : Bloodlust whilst listening to this song and it really fit the mood.
    Now when I play computer games I play it when I'm shooting things.

    General CommentToo bad Cradle can't come back to greatness such as this. Man, they have really gone to shit recently. And I love this song. Good to see the full lyrics; free of typos and with the full "Nefarious as her winds" part of the chorus (if you can call it that).
