"Shiver" as written by Amy Wadge and Anna Leddra Chapman....
Fear in a frame? or the picture of a girl?
With a gorgonesque stare her scale covered hair
Has got a snake in every curl.
With her forked tongue and those ash colored eyes get you down on the naked and sore
First you shiver then you die
Cut your fingers on the page where those old wounds run deep.
But the taste of the sand, rosary in her hand still haunts you in your sleep.
Shiver, yeah you'll shiver through the night
I'll deliver, vapid vulture to the light
Gonna shiver and shiver and shiver and shiver
You'll shiver through the night
Deceived by the sound the pitter patter of little feet,
Was the rhythmless rave of your cloven hooved babe calling to you from the street.
As she taunts you as she dances your genitals in the dirt.
Your eternal heart aches, your bones bend and break but the beating barely hurts.
So desperate to love but you just can't pretend that her hands weren't claws.
Your madonna was medusa in the end.shiver, yeah you'll shiver through the night
I'll deliver, vapid vulture to the light
Gonna shiver and shiver and shiver and shiver you'll shiver through the night.
It's too late to keep your tongue from sliding round the scales of the snake.
Ride the snake

    General Commentto me, it feels like the song is about a man being forced to perform oral sex on a woman (it's too late to keep your tongue from sliding round the scales of the snake) as she beats and eventually kills him (down on the floor, naked and sore, first you shiver, then you die).

    the woman is most likely one of the SIsters (the cult created by Gloria).

    General CommentI think this is supposed to be about one of the "sisters" transformed. Her boyfriend is still in love with her even though she's basically devoted herself to the destruction of man.
    "deceived by the sound the pitter patter of little feet,
    was the rhythmless rave of your cloven hooved babe calling to you from the street."
    - instead of a sweet and graceful woman she's now a monster.

    "but the taste of the sand, rosary in her hand still haunts you in your sleep." "Your Madonna was Medusa in the end."
    - she used to be innocent and now she is evil

    The whole thing about it beingto late to keep his tongue from sliding 'round the scales of the snake and "get you down on the floor naked and sore. first you shiver, then you die." That's just saying he's had a sexual taste of her in this monstrous state and it's so good he shivers afterwards until he feels like dying. (like realy angry sex) And now he's hooked on it and it's too late to stop.
