"Venus Doom" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Leave all behind now to watch her crawl
Through our dark gardens of insanity
She'll be the light to guide you back home
Just give her a kiss worth dying for
And open your arms

[Chorus]
Watch me fall for you
My Venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed
My Venus doom
All dreams are of you
My Venus doom

Grieve all your hearts out and she'll writhe enthralled
In tragic ecstatic agony
And in her flames we will die some more
Just show me her life worth living for
And light up the dark

[Chorus]

Hold me inside your infernal offering
Touch me as I fall
Don't lose yourself in this suffering yet
Hold on

Watch me fall for you
My Venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed

Watch me fall for you
My Venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed
My Venus doom
All tears are of you
My Venus doom

    General Comment@ DreamersDisease; He hasn't cut down on smoking but he's drinking water now instead of beer and jaegermeister... I also read that he went to rehab because of his alcohol problem (which he obviously has/had)

    General CommentThe Second verse is wrong. It's:

    Greive all your hearts out and she'll write things wrong in tragic ecstatic agony.
    In her flames we will die some more, just show me her life worth liven for, light up the dark

    General Commentlove this song..lqtmrofl..
    I think this song is about the downsides of falling in Love or letting yourself be pulled into a 'venus fly trap' kind of scenario in love...Gives out negative connotations of love. Such as falling victim to it. You go 'coo coc' and 'ga ga' over it.
    It could also be about hiding or pushing away the chance of embracing love for true happiness because of fear....But now the person's willing to change that and take a risk or plunge ..which is why they say "watch me fall..." bit..regardless of the fact that it'll end in tragedy...
    "flames" = dangers ?
    Venus doom ? Is that some sort of symbolism of a deity like Goddess of love..*shruggs*..making wild guesses here..so don't shoot the messenger or make cyberkill outta me.
    lol

    General CommentI think it\'s a philosophical song, he\'s debating with himself if love is really worth all the problems and sorrow accosiated with it.

    And also the screams in the background could be out of frustration or fear.

    Good song none the less!

    General CommentYeah, he's been to rehab for drinking but he definitely hasn't cut down smoking. (Saw them in July and he smoked 5 cigs in a half hour.) He looked great/healthy though, I think that was from not having alcohol anymore.
