Cradle Of Filth - Lyrics

Nymphetamine - Album


Foul snake despair

Where once you darkened gardens

Another coils there

Where twice you sliced all hope from me

And left these present scars

An insane love now burns above

The weft of incandescent stars

Hilt your dripping fangs that range

Skywards to rend apart

I might have sang of wings unchained

But long before I locked my heart

For Gabrielle

A fit and perfect stitch of foreign parts

Whose beauty fostered poets

Whose laugh like silver belts

Thawed your bitter winter from my path


Foul snake despair

Where once you peddled secrets

Another spoils there

With speech that sweetens drowning

In deep lagoons of eyes

And legs that begged apologies

For lengths that mesmerised

Spare your hissing sentiments

For her fee welts more than thine

Though no malice she weans

Just a palace of dreams

Where windswept chambers pine

For Gabrielle

Whose hair-spun onyx is run with gold

Her rouge lips smack of dark blood

Her name in whisper rolls

Forever on my tongue

Lest her memory dissolve


Oh, Gabrielle

Once crucified

I would have died

A thousand more times

Just to feel her breath

On my neck as a fervent lover

To drown her sighs

In floods of tears so well refined

And blind from spying her

In the arms of others



Buried inside

Where she’s all but mine

Save for those that dine

Oh her, on her perfect carcass



Foul snake despair

Where once you wreaked my misery

Another toils there

For long lost Gabrielle

Whose nightly spreading grin

Persists in other faces

By whom I’m slowly taken in

05. Absinthe With Faust

Pour the emerald wine

Into crystal glasses

We will touch the divine

Through kisses catharsis

Let us pitch to the seven-year itch

Of the ultra-decadent

To a tainted world and the painted girls

That our fantasies spent

Tripping through boudoirs laced with opiate themes

Sipping the bizarre, tasting copious dreams

A toast to those most sacrilegious of days

Where for every whim won

One soon repays

We touched the stars

That now laugh from afar

At we, the damned

The damned

The damned

The damned

We have spent our time

Drenched in opulent splendour

But when midnight chimes

Will gilded souls surrender?

Let us drink on the giddying brink

Of pools of excrement

All manner of shit for the glamour and glitz

Mephistopheles lent

I remember the night as if it were engraved

A bright marble bridge stretched across the dark waves

To the shore from the moon and by her grace

Came that erudite stranger

That fucker

Come my friend, to fate let’s raise

Two finger shots at this our last soiree

For tomorrow I fear

Swoops all too deadly near

This precipitous weir to Hell’s high gate

We touched the stars

That now laugh from afar

At we, the damned

The damned

The damned

The damned
