DARKEST LULLABY

"Tell me a bedtime story
And don't forget the monsters..."
 
Prophets of doom filling the coffers of dragons
Martyrdom blood drowns angels in the streets of Heaven
Never will the vultures ever hunger for the tortured
Flesh stripped away from bones of gods of phantoms
 
Witness the malice through the looking glass
And sweep away the ashes of the past
I have yet to taste fervor temptation
Except in the throes of perdition
 
Profits of doom seem so hellbent to haunt these bones
A wisp of spectres trapped 'tween whispers' agonized screams
Sever the arteries pillared with your disease
Imprisoned in the insidious heart of bleakest dreams
 
Goddamn the midnight queen
I can't lick away all the blood
On my hands, so true
THAT I'VE SHED FOR YOU
 
So, as you lay your head to sleep
Know this knife is yours to keep
If you die before before you wake
Know your soul is mine to take
 
Never meant to horrify
With this darkest lullaby
 
Gorgons of war gather for the slaughter
At the cusp of winter in Hades' oratory
Dying in the ghost light lying to lovers' plight
Human sacrifices stripped of flesh in Purgatory
 
Serpents entwined with the scars of murder
As crows sing laments beneath the thunder
Choke down the taste of fervor temptation
Within the halls of our damnation
 
Morbid are the tunes rent from the devil's tongue
As manticores fornicate with centobitical clerics
Venom tipped hell talons sodomizes willing hellions
For the glory to bare chimeric heretics
 
Behold the midnight queen
Writhing in passionate lustmord
I am damned, so true
FOR WHAT I'VE DONE FOR YOU
 
So, as you lay your head to sleep
Know this knife is yours to keep
If you die before before you wake
Know your soul is mine to take
 
Never meant to horrify
With this darkest lullaby
 
GOOD NIGHT, MY SWEET
REST THE SLEEP OF DEAD ANGELS
IN MY GOOD NAME
IN YOUR GRAVE
DREAM OF THE DEAD OF POMPEII
 
Goddamn the midnight queen
I can't lick away all the blood
On my hands, so true
THAT I'VE SHED FOR YOU
 
So, as you lay your head to sleep
Know this knife is yours to keep
If you die before before you wake
Know your soul is mine to take
 
Never meant to horrify
With this darkest lullaby
