"Midnight Shadows Crawl To Darken Counsel With Li" as written by Paul James Allender, Daniel Lloyd Davey, Charles Hedger, Mark Newby-robson, Dave Pybus and Martin Skaroupka....
The evening air laps thick about
The stagnant moat that Tiffuages claims
As dusk now slips away
Where taught to run, the rotten tongue
Of a hotter Götterdämerung
Has started licking like a flame

Whispers in the dismal mist
Are full of crystal promises

Black rites begun in earnest
Ignite Hell's hungry furnace

Behold the bold inauguration of the dark side
Demonic passions climbing
I'll-fated stars aligning

Tonight these sights are guaranteed to feed the master
The tide of blood is rising
His gifts will be providing

Unmasked, the phantom lord De Rais
Haunts the furthest tower
Wherein death has sucked the hour

There, throttled gasps tantamount for foreplay
And drooling razors next to come
Unspool red secrets from the young

The moon grinned full, the games were chaste
When the children first arrived
Now midnight shadows crawl apace
To darken council with their lives

Flesh and ecstasy as sport
Are immortal vices of the highest order
Wherein devilry holds sway
Behold blind walls where these cockatrice squalled
Their songs of Necronomicon
Spoke out of Gilles De Rais

Each murdered son, each frozen rose
Handpicked, was gently fed
To the sumptuous one in black and those
Whose lives where thrown in with the dead

The candles lit, the stage was set
As it was in sainted days
When censers swung and banners hung
On the Siege of Orleans on the painted Seine

Now the castle floats in the drifting fog
Torn from it's moorings
Like a shipwreck dredged from Hell
As innocents entreat a shiffing God
Their voices soaring
On a silver tide to heaven
On a knife edge as they fell

The blade would plunge in virulent arcs
Such wounds would stretch away
By the fireside, warmed to creative sparks
Of the monster Gilles De Rais

Gilded Gilles De Rais

Comets vomited
The restless bells of crime
Peeled black skin from broken bones
Of angels cut from the nicks of time

Festering faces with painted eyes
The prettiest kept to be thrust inside
Gaping necromantic from the mantle-side
Caked in kissed goodbyes

Days faded in decay
The stench of perfume lied
No horror in the glades of man
Was left for Barrom to provide

So unique was the beat of his poisoned heart
And it's sordid, morbid crack
No further atrocity could possibly surpass
Unrewarded, bored, he turned his burning back

    General CommentRight after "And when they were languishing, I committed them the evils of the flesh" there is a line spelled backwards. I searched other sites for this and decided to reverse it myself, and yes, it does sound like "I fucked them in the asshole"..

    General CommentI think everyone knows what this is about. But for total closure and clarity; it's about Gilles De Rais, a 15th century French nobleman turned serial killer and his paedophilia and murders [of children].

    General CommentYou must have great ears, Apollyon, I can't catch most of the lyrics forwards! I shan't go there with my "Gilles de Rais was innocent" schtick, as it's getting boring, but in his confessions (extracted under the threat of torture) he is very explicit that no orifices at all were penetrated. I leave your mind to boggle...

    General CommentOf course Dani has made some additions to the story - it's not wrong to be creative.

    General Commenthaha Apollyon, I actually came across this sight because I reversed those lyrics just a minute ago, and wasnt sure I heard them correctly. I spose you've confirmed it XD
    its something along the lines of "I fucked them in the asshole" or atleast "fucked them up the ass". =D
    made me chuckle...
