Venus Doom tracks

Lyrics

1. VENUS DOOM

Leave all behind now to watch her crawl
Through our dark gardens of insanity
She'll be the light to guide you back home
Just give her a kiss worth dying for
And open your arms

[Chorus]
Watch me fall for you
My venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed
My venus doom
All dreams are of you
My venus doom

Grieve all your hearts out and she'll writhe enthralled
In tragic ecstatic agony
And in her flames we will die some more
Just show me her life worth living for
And light up the dark

[Chorus]

Hold me inside your infernal offering
Touch me as I fall
Don't lose yourself in this suffering yet
Hold on

Watch me fall for you
My venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed

Watch me fall for you
My venus doom
Hide my heart where all dreams are entombed
My venus doom
All tears are of you
My venus doom




2. LOVE IN COLD BLOOD

Serpentine love's thighs wrap around me in search for death
Drenched in blood the adored and beloved will give in to'

Love in cold blood
Breathe me in sweet suffering
Love in cold blood
Put me out of my misery

Love's feline eyes in darkness shine on her web
Demonised with divine insight we draw our last breath

Darling take me home
To the castle made of skulls and bones
Sing me a song to remind me where I belong
In your arms, my love, in cold blood




3. PASSION'S KILLING FLOOR

Its poetry carved in flesh
This beautiful Hell of ours
To the deadliest sin we confess
(Tears of joy fill our eyes)

We are safe where disfigured saints
Cry out their prophecies of doom

[Chorus]
My heart's a graveyard baby
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor
In my arms you won't sleep safely
And of lust we are reborn
On our passion's killing floor

At the first kiss the seeds of hatred are sown
Back into darkness we flee (to tear our hearts out)

We are safe where all fates fail
The light inside of our tomb

[Chorus]

(Oh my heart's a graveyard baby)
Oh my heart's a graveyard baby
On our passion's killing floor

(In my arms you won't sleep safely)
And to evil we make love
On our passion's killing floor

Forevermore




4. THE KISS OF DAWN

Blinded I am and so are you
By shedding tears
Confusion that separates us two
We hold dear
Just look into my eyes
Kiss our fears good bye

[Chorus]
I'm reaching for your shadow drowning in
The kiss of dawn
Touching the pain that you left me with
At the kiss of dawn

I'm tired of the games I'm playing with you
When you're not here
Death frees from the fear of dying
it's true, have no fear

Let me look into your eyes
and see death pass us by

[Chorus](x2)




5. SLEEPWALKING PAST HOPE

I hid the keys to unlock love's heart
To hold you in my sweetest pain and suffering
Everything's unfair in our lust and war
Redemption beyond right and wrong

In our hearts love keeps sweet-talking to despair
And goes on sleepwalking past hope
All is lost in this war
And all we can do is to wail and weep to the saddest song
Sleepwalking past hope

I unlit the light to embrace the dark
To be near but not to turn into you my darling
Forever we're lost in our souls' storm
Reflections of each other's faults

I gave up long ago
Painting love with crimson flow
Ran out of blood and hope
So I paint you no more

My hell begins from the 10th and descends to the circle
Six hundred threescore and six
And from there I crawl beneath Lucifer's claws just for one last kiss




6. DEAD LOVER'S LANE

Despair has a face
And all these wounds remain unhealed
Bless the killed and enslaved
Our own hearts are our loves will
Thrilled to start all over again

Crawl down dead lover's lane,
The maze of memories stained
And it sucks the blood right out of my heart

Fear has a name
Written on our hallowed ground
With their tears
Those words never saved
To fear your heart and our dreams
Are these beyond our grasp?

Crawl down dead lover's lane
The maze of memories stained
And it sucks the blood right out of my heart

Scream out love's name in vain
Erase the pain again
And move yourself across the dark
Dead lover's lane

Crawl down dead lover's lane,
The maze of memories stained
And it sucks the blood right out of my heart

Scream out love's name in vain
Erase the pain again
And move yourself across the dark

And it sucks the blood right of my heart

Right out of my heart




7. SONG OR SUICIDE

Sorrow rebuild me as I step out of the light
Misery strengthen me as I say my goodbyes

I heal my wounds with grief
And dream of you
And weep myself alive




8. BLEED WELL

You had demons to kill within you screaming
With a gun loaded with guilt you opened their eyes

Love preys the living and praises the dead
In the heart of our hearts by death we were wed

Bleed well the soul you're about to sell for passion deranged
Kiss and tell, baby we're bleeding well
Bleed well the heart you're about to fail for reasons insane
Kill and tell, baby we're bleeding well'
'In hell

'No love lost under her will', I heard you weeping
And on those words a church was built to keep the pain in

If death is the answer to love's mysteries
Then bleed on my darling to the sound of a dream




9. CYANIDE SUN

Should've known how hard it is to stop tearing each other apart
Separating souls entwined with all these labyrinthine lies

I am dead to you, a shadow doomed
My love, forever in the dark
And of all untruths the truest is you
Too close to my heart

This emptiness I've made my home
Embracing memories of dreams long gone
One last caress from the corpse of love is all I want
Underneath the cyanide sun

We've sailed the seas of grief on a raft built with our tears
Looking for a way to disappear for a moment from our deepest fears

I'll be drowning you in this river of gloom
Forever in my heart
