"Under Huntress Moon" as written by Paul James Allender, Daniel Lloyd Davey, Charles Hedger and Dave Pybus....
With the snow fallen thick
And bonfires alit
And shooting stars portents of rips
I ascended to spur
A mere glimpse or murmur
From her precious celestial lips

Be it sun to your moon
Be it moon to your sun
Together we promised to come
With a turn of the screw
And a slip of the tongue
We eclipsed one another undone

Through the mists, through the woods
With the night-wraiths Iâ??ve stood
Atop murderous peaks calling you
On storm-lashed beachheads
Where the fishermen dread
The things your bewitchments accrue

Those deep creatures bring
Her cut diamond rings
A girl with a pearl necklace her
Advancing in fevers
Tsunamis and myrrh
Will she wreak bloody vengeance or purr?

Or will she burn?

She lights the skies
Dressed in silver scales plucked from the ocean
To spite her thighs
That Lucifer snuck inside
And with his pride
Enclaves were upgraded to Goshen
So paradise
Could shine from out her skirts

â??I adorn myself at dusk
With ornaments to close the noose
A kiss as red as blood and cold as hell

My body glows with lust
Anaemic as the flag of truce
I raised at dawn to catch you in my spellâ??

With every twist I cannot resist her
Fertile female mind control
This wanton witch, white-rapids sister
To whom I pour my wine and soul

And here we go again!

From a corpse of black pews
Where the moon was drawn through
Like a sword through a Gordian knot
She descended to me
Claiming swift victory
Over the heart I had near-soon forgot

With every kiss this huntress whispered:
â??Yield to my sweet embrace
One night of bliss.â?? I could not dismiss her
Once her beauty shot me a darker face

You mesmerise my soul Diana
You mesmerise my soul

    General CommentWhat does this song mean to me?

    To me it means... I really want to sit on Dani Filth's dick.

    Or at least praise him for writing such a great song about the goddess Diana, and indirectly about reverence for the beauty and power of nature.

    General CommentDiana is the roman god of hunt and the moon. I dunno what the rest means yet, but I'll look into it.

    General Commentfrom cradleoffilth.com/descriptions.html :

    This is a hymn to the beauty of the moon, as personified by the celestial huntress Diana. The lyrics in this song are very reminiscent of Cradle's earlier works where pagan imagery is jewelled with strong female characteristics, as is befitting of the eternal Goddess herself.
    These lyrics have a very classical feel to them and it is only through their morbid cadence that the reader comes to understand the author's bewitched state of mind.

    General CommentDiana is the Pagan name of the moon/or moon Godess

    Dani Filth has said himself he's Pagan
    so to me these lyrics are him worshiping Diana in song...
