"Amor E Morte" as written by Paul James Allender, Dani Davey, Robin Mark Eaglestone, Adrian Paul Erlandsson, Gianpiero Guiseppe Piras and Martin F. Powell....
Her bouquets are wilted
Too long has She slept
Their cruel red mouths darkened
To bowed silhouettes

I saw in a new moon
With Her scent on my breath
But then all to soon
Came the hunger for flesh

I held Her in eyes like necropoli
Laying Her on a tomb with a view
Lighting Her from Her feet
To the stars in Her hair
Drove sweet blood to Her throat
And My lips parted there

(In the tone of splintered bone)
She screams benighted
My limbs ignite
A carneal carnivore
On all fours to go...

An ebon Nemesis
From torture gardens of Dis
Having never breathed an Eve
As far narcotic as this

Two spellbound hellhounds
Hearts pounding loud
Racing Heaven out of focus
Under quicksilver clouds

"God is maimed come let us prey..."
To lunar deities that pave deadways
Twixt the living and the grave
Amor e Morte

To cast our fearl shadows there
We made Love bleed on a Deathbed shared
Where, begging Me to feed
To best be Were...

I licked Her wounds and ate Her rare

Argentinum spurred
her watnon words incurred
A sin ridden tongue
To open trading in fur

Never were those gates of pearl
So rubbed to their cusp
Never were the Worlds above
So bitten with the bestial...

Seraphim fell like guillotines
Giving gracious head

Instead of harking prophecies
And how our brother sang
Amor e Morte
In the thick evergreens

Theirs was a chorus for raucous souls
Shifting shape and lifting napes
To commemorate
Erotic stains
Amor e Morte

Unfasten thy masque
Come skyclad to my arms
Leave thy gown a dark pool at thy feet
I yearn musky valleys that no Man hath seen

The chill keen of stars
Over Yew and deep wooded ravines
A hidden meridian
Where Midian may be...

In black antlered glades
Encunted in this forest Goddess
She whispers My name
I buck under flames
Animal nitrates
Howling through my veins

I ride riptides that wrest and writhe to the fore
New lusts ecllipsing lips
That brought me to this verge of War
With inner beasts unleashed
To feast, fuck and run
Rampart in chase of She wolf pacts
Forged on heat with setting Suns

I love the night
It would murder My soul
Should I ever fall blind
For though thy flesh haunts
I keep also in mind
The stampede of clouds
From Dusk's predatory sky

Purple versed like the funeral hearse
That first turned thee over to My...
Unbridled kiss when I found thee in mist
Dressed for the sepulchre
My Demon bride...

"God is maimed come let Us prey..."
To Lunar Deities that pave deadways
Twixt the living and the grave
Amor e Morte

Ours was a chorus for raucous souls
Shifting sape and lifting nape
To commemorate
Erotic stains

Amor e Morte
Amor e Morte

    General Commentomg, clarification is obviously MUCH NEEDED on the meaning of "amor e morte"...

    first of all, it is neither spanish nor italian.

    it can be a portuguese sentence:
    amor = love
    e = and
    morte = death
    meaning "love and death", quite simple

    AND

    it can be a latin sentence
    amor = love
    e = out of
    morte; abl. sg. from mors = death
    ...meaning "love out of death", or, more liberally translated "love from death".

    but as that makes no sense, let's just stick to the portuguese version and stop arguing, okay?

    General Comment(A few months later)
    And by the way, the song is about a couple who are very much in Love, and they become Lycanthropes together to destroy humanity.

    General Commenthaha This conversation actually made me laugh.
    Amor E Morte means love is dead, and seeing as how this song is about necrophilia, I'm guessing it's a pun (his love, the woman he's fucking, is literally dead). This song is disgusting, and I'm pretty sure that's why I love it so much. 5 and 6 on Midian (Lord Abortion and this one) are probably the two grossest Cradle of Filth songs ever written. They r0x0rz.

    General CommentAmor=love
    Morte=Ablative of Mors(Death, corpse)
    e+ablative of following noun=out of, from
    I've studied latin for three years, and can safely conclude that "Amor e morte" in latin in context of the song is "love from Death" or "love from a corpse".
