"Malice Through The Looking Glass" as written by Nicholas Andrew Barker, Robin Mark Eaglestone, Gregory Moffit, Stuart Anstis and Dani Davey....
Take away the wine
For restlessness plagues me
I am assailed by a spectre profounder
Than hatred and grief or the sum of their hideous crime

I shalt suffer this confessional mime

Awaiting the sun to set, crimsoning seas
Only once it is dark doth my misery cease

She died to a sky dressed in flame
Eyes full of curses for her killers by choice
Who fell to their god o'er her vision and voice

"I am as dusk come to ravish the light"
Steal me from their stares and mute Christ into night
"I will answer thy prayers"
If thou Wouldst drink of my life

Encroaching evening skies
Die with such tragedy
And those interred in cold graves
Dwell on pleasures to be
In deep hysteria
Where our legend still breathes
Through sweet death and thereafter
Sweeping nightmares shalt feed

    General CommentWell, first off, to all of you who believe this song is a reference to Elizabethb Bathory, your wrong. Cradle would release a concept album based on the blood countess shortly after the album this song is featured on. This song is from "dusk and her embrace", which is loosely based round the writings of Sheridan Le Fanu. It lyrical themes are generated towards Vampirism, Dark romance and macabre love.

    General Commentyou missed the last half of the song. stupid. This is the last part:

    Encroaching evening skies
    Die with such tragedy
    And those interred in cold graves
    Dwell on pleasures to be
    In deep hysteria
    Where our legend still breathes
    Through sweet death and thereafter
    Sweeping nightmares ... shalt feed ...

    General CommentA man drowns himself in wibe because of a sorrow he cannot bear, but then finally decides to face the "restlessness plauging him". His lover from a while ago was murdere sadistically by a group of men, by being set on fire, and she cursed them as she died, then she came back to haunt them and they pleaded to God to save them... or something like that.

    General CommentYeah. Just by looking at the title I assumed that it would be about bearing some kind of hatred towards oneself. Malice being the hatred, looking-glass being a mirror. So maybe he's pissed off at himself for allowing something to happen...Or something like that.

    General CommentHmmm, obviously about lost love. But maybe
    'She died to a sky dressed in flame'
    Might intend a sunrise, meaning death to a vampire.
    Perhaps the song is about a man morning the death of a vampire?
    Personally, I think songs like this are art. And art is meant to be whatever you get out of it
