Mother can you hold me
one more time again
whisper "I still love you? in my ear
mother did you lie
would you tell me why
there is something deeper that I fear
justify the evil I portray
daggers in the darkness find your way
when the moon is full and piercing bright
drench me with your innocence tonight

Don't you want to die
walk beside me evermore
don't you feel alive
like you've never felt before

Visions of the future
unprofound and blurred
I have passed the point of no return

Justify the evil I portray
let me keep my beauty one more day
when the moon is full and piercing bright
drench me with your innocence tonight
don't you want to die
walk beside me evermore
don't you feel alive
like you've never felt before

Don't you want to die
souls transcending, silver shine
don't you feel alive
your blood preserves my place in time

    General CommentThis is the sequel, so to say, of the first song Elizabeth I. Mirror Mirror. It's a harder paced song about the niece of the king of Poland, Elizabeth Bathury who believed that the murder of young virgins would keep her young forever. Well, since the first song, she has lost her innocence and is still obsessed with killing. The follow-up to this song explains better.

    Song MeaningAssuming you understood that this 3 part song is about Elizabeth Bathory, in this song she is in her prime, killing virgin servant girls and going insane with power.

    Note well though, this entire song is addressed to Elizabeth's mother. Elizabeth knows she is sinning and wants to feel better about her actions, so she seeks the embrace of her mother.

    However, "your blood preserves my place in time" makes it somewhat clear that Elizabeth ends up killing her mother and the next song is about dealing with the consequences of killing a noble, including: prison!
