"Love In Cold Blood" as written by and Ville Hermanni Valo....
Serpentine love's thighs wrap around me in search for death
Drenched in blood the adored and beloved will give in to'

Love in cold blood
Breathe me in sweet suffering
Love in cold blood
Put me out of my misery

Love's feline eyes in darkness shine on her web
Demonized with divine insight we draw our last breath

Darling take me home
To the castle made of skulls and bones
Sing me a song to remind me where I belong
In your arms, my love, in cold blood

    General CommentGotta love the bridge...
    So the Special K Remix... Reckon it's got anything to do with Placebo??
    I mean Placebo have a song called Special K and HIM and Placebo have just toured the US together for Projekt Revolution...
    I guess we'll just have to wait and see...
    Unless someone's already heard it?
    Either way, I've got my Limited Edition pre-ordered and I'm looking forward to hearing it.

    General CommentThey like Placebo very much but I don't think that this is anything to do with them.

    By the way, This Song Is Freaking Great! One of the best on Venus Doom. IMO Kiss of Dawn, Love in Cold Blood, Dead Lovers Lane & Cyanide Sun are the best!

    General Commentheh heh heh..call me immmature or wateva what is it just me or is this a song about sex with lust but no love. So lust lacks of warmth thus use of the serpentine metaphor && cold blood...where love exudes warm and reverse of serpents....lol. Catchy songg

    General CommentI like the music a lot! It's great!

    And, as for the lyrics... uh, I don't know, I think it can be about various things, as many Ville's songs.

    'Cold blood' - is it cold because he actually has no feelings, as DreamersDisease said, or is it cold because he's dead? Maybe both, conserning Ville's view of love?

    General CommentI'm trying to find a link between the song an Truman Capote's book 'In Cold Blood'...
    I think the line
    "Demonized with divine insight we draw our last breath"
    is quite creepy. It's a scary idea, realizing that you're about to die...

    General Commentlike i said on the venus doom page venus was the godess of love and doom is death so love is dead.maybe this song is an aftermath to venus doom and love is a crime as severe as murder. u know like killed in cold blood or cold blooded killer

    General Comment"Castle made of sculls and bones" - is this some kinda of literary reference or something? Trying to figure it out, is a castle made of dead ppl's sceletons a positive thing for Ville or not? :P

    General CommentHe is with somone. He loves her but she doesn't love him and he is saying that its a 'Love in cold blood' and he just cant let go of her. But he really wants or needs to escape e.g. 'Put me out of my misery'.
