Candelabra snuffed prey - silhouette wedded
Nightfall take my hand
Seduce me with silky timbred limbs
Grant me thy dark command
Over the peaks framing tapestries
Of thick forest, dusk has filled
With Lucifugous kisses enwreathed in mist
Creeping like violations from the shadows
To kill

Is my love in vein
When thy tears bleed sweeter
Thank the midsummer rain?
Bewinged, infested belfries
Toll o'er the sobbing throng
A writhe of lethargic, terrored nudes
Whipped and welted neath the barbed windsong

(In saddean paradise
Ancestral legacies linger on)

I am He
The crowned and conquering darkness
Satan robed in ecumenical filth
Livid Bacchus sustained by bridal echelons of sylph

This wintry eve when the snow glistens deep
And sharpened turrets wed the jewelless skies
I shrug off the shroud of preternatural sleep
Enbroided by these words Malaresia scribed....

"Beauty slept and angels wept
For Her immortal soul
In this response, all evil chose
To claim her for their very own"

The pleasured dead speak of her
In necromantic tongue
When ambered daylights are done

Masterbating in their graves
On her zenith to come

This catafalque night when awed stars report
Their absence from the heavenly brow
Crippled seraph shalt cower in illustrious courts
Whilsts the cloaked maelstrom resounds throughout

"How the storm it fulfills
My heart though unhealed
Celestial knives ebonied
And wild woods thrill
Yet far fiercer still
Her lustre eviscerates me"

Priapic lovers twist in concert with Her
Covenants are struck, jagged lightning fellates
The path towards the castle weary innocence takes

I rule as Master here
Where feral hordes impart my temper
Love sank wounded when I, betrayed
Saw death etch cruelly, upon my lineage

"Usher the spite seething Draconist
And commit this world to thy ancient

Erunescent veil descend
Psalmed sunset thus portends
And laid to rest, I now am blessed
With this darkness, forever more

Supreme Vampiric Evil

    I agree with "Opethfanatic89" and i have a strong passionate hate for "oh_my_lantern"... Top 5 Reasons To Hate "oh_my_lantern"- 1. His name reminds me of the phrase "Oh my Lanta." which is used by several old fogies throughout the world (lmao) 2. He's bashing Cradle 3. He has no understanding of the different sub-genres of metal, Killswitch Engage, Lamb of God, and Iron Maiden are pretty basic metal bands to me. Slipknot is like thrash metal or speed metal and Cradle is just their own unique style. (btw, I don't like Slipknot, Lamb of God, Killswitch Engage, or Iron Maiden, but notice how I'm not bashing them, but rather bashing an ass wipe) 4. According to the times given on my computer, he leaves his comments in the early hours of the morning so he has more of a chance to respond to our arguments because he can't come up with this stuff on the top of hiss head because he doesn't feel as strongly as he thinks he does on the subject. 5. I can already tell what kind of person he is by just reading his comments. He's the stuck-up, thinks he's all that and a bag of shit, waste of skin that has no life so he bashes others. END OF CONVERSATION!!!

    What are you a fucking mixture of jews, communists and nazis? Lantern, how can a pathetic shame to the world like you even be? If I were you i'd rather start doing something more useful than wanking out shit of your degradated brain. Killing yourself with a spoon or some nice literature would be more than decent. This isn't mein kampf, grow up, it's long over.

    WTF is this song about? WTF is Carpathia? It was the ship that rescued all the survivors of the Titanic, but that doesn't sound like something Dani would right about. Why write about saving life, when you can write about taking the lives of young virgins and drinking their blood? It's also a Mountain range in Eastern Europe. The Carpathian mountains.

    Yep, that's the one. The Carpathians are a mountain range in northern Romania - Transylvania. I guess referring to Carpathia is a little less cliched and faux vampire cheesy than writing about Transylvania. Sounds better as well.

    Carpathia is reffering to all that vampyric bollocks he talks about, u see he can write amzing lkyrics he just talks about shite, he should talk about something more meaningfull, but then maybe vampires is the only thing he knows about.

    this is about a region in rumania where the story of Dracula took place. He uses the name of Carpathia instead of Transylvania to escape from the clichè of calling the track "funeral in transylvania". It is a story of a vampire and how delightful the night is to him, and how this nocturnal kingdom belongs to him ("I rule as Master here Where feral hordes impart my temper"). Also, somewhere in the begining of the track, he names Lucretia, who I believe is his beloved one.
