"Passion's Killing Floor" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
It's poetry carved in flesh
This beautiful hell of ours
To the deadliest sin we confess
(Tears of joy fill our eyes)
We are safe where disfigured saints
Cry out their prophecies of doom

My heart's a graveyard, baby
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor
In my arms, you won't sleep safely
And of lust we are reborn
On our passion's killing floor

At the first kiss
the seeds of hatred are sown
Back into darkness we flee
(To tear our hearts out)
We are saved where all faiths fail
Alive inside of our tomb

My heart's a graveyard, baby
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor
In my arms, you won't sleep safely
And of lust we are reborn
On our passion's killing floor

My heart's a graveyard, baby
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor
In my arms, you won't sleep safely
And of lust we are reborn
On our passion's killing floor

(My heart's a graveyard, baby)
My heart's a graveyard, baby
On our passion's killing floor

(In my arms, you won't sleep safely)
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor

Forever more

    General Commenti just got Venus Doom and here are the real lyrics


    It's poetry carved in flesh
    This beautiful hell of ours
    To the deadliest sin we confess
    And tears of joy fill our eyes

    We are safe where disfigured saints
    Cry out their prophecies of doom

    My heart's a graveyard baby
    And to evil we make love
    On our passion's killing floor
    In my arms you won't sleep safely
    And of lust we are reborn
    On our passion's killing floor

    At the first kiss the seeds
    Of hatred are sown
    And back into darkness we flee
    To tear our hearts out
    We are safe where all faiths fail
    Alive inside of our tomb

    My heart's a graveyard baby
    And to evil we make love
    On our passion's killing floor
    In my arms you won't sleep safely
    And of lust we are reborn
    On our passion's killing floor

    General CommentThis song is pretty sweet, love the new sound of the band.

    I can't make a proper review of the song yet, because I only just heard, so I don't really know the lyrics. Lol. ^^;

    I think that maybe instead of "the seas of hatred are sewn" it should be "the seeds of hatred are sewn"

    Neat stuff!! I've pre-ordered at my local music supplier!

    General CommentLove the band's sound. Ville's lyrics just get better and better with every album. Although from what I hear, there's only like 5 seconds of the song played in the Transformers movie so that kinda sucks. But it's still good to hear them in an American film. Anyone know of a place to hear more bits of the new album? Lol.

    General CommentI like this song...with every new album a band produces peeople either like it or they don't. Regardless of that, bands go through growth in their music...HIM by the sounds of this song are still the same yet you can tell there's growth in there too if you've been a dedicated listener from the start. Ville's voice has gone less husky or raspy I've noticed..there 's a smooth melody..when getting to the bridge there's that dark gothic undertone...is that him? hmm... Can't wait for the album to come out....! =D

    Hmm..I think this song is anythign but about pure love for sure...I think it's about love betwen two people thats sinful or forbidden and based more upon lust and attraction rather than feelings...reminds me of people cheating....

    or by listening to the chorus it could be about a person whose warning their lover not to except anything good from them...their relationship together will only bring them danger and no security.

    General CommentI love this song because i find it more sounds like the love metal era and it still sounds like HIM i had some doubts about the album cause of Dark Light ( I mean it was good but it jsut didnt sounded really like HIM to me) and now thoose are all gone

    General CommentI totally agree with Dreamdisease, you definately sound like a dedicated fan. I've been listening to HIM since 2000 and you can definately see the change in Valo's voice over the years. I also agree that this song sound as someone tasting forbidden fruit without having any regrets. Valo said the new album is going to be more harder then anything they've done in the past so i'm excited to see what the new sounds gonna be! Personally I think HIM fans have NOTHING to worry about because honestly whens the last time this band put out an album you didnt ewnd of falling in love with??
