Lyrics

1. PASSION'S KILLING FLOOR

It's poetry carved in flesh
This beautiful hell of ours
To the deadliest sin we confess
(Tears of joy fill our eyes)
We are saved with its bigotries
My out-there prophecies of doom

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 sewn
Back into darkness we flee
(To tear our hearts out)
We are saved where all fates fail
The light inside of our tomb

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

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

(My heart's a graveyard, baby)
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

Forever more. . .




2. (RIP OUT)THE WINGS OF A BUTTERFLY

Heaven ablaze in your eyes
We're standing still in time
The blood on our hands is the wine
We offer as sacrifice

Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul

This endless mercy mile
We're crawling side by side
With hell freezing over in our eyes
Gods kneel before our crime

Come on and show them your love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul, my love
Rip out the wings of a butterfly
For your soul




3. BURIED ALIVE BY LOVE

Again the burden of losing rest
Upon my shoulders
And its weight seems unbearable
Your tomb is where your heart is,
I should've told her
But within me hid a secret so terrible

To cry is to know that you're alive
But my river of tears has run dry
I never wanted to fool you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart

And it feels like I've been buried alive by love
If I should die before I wake
Pray no one my soul to take
And if I wake before I die,
Rescue me with your smile

The kiss of vanity blessed me with a spiritual murder
And fed the gods of war insatiable
Your tomb is where the dark is, I should've told her
And embraced the fire indestructible

To die is to know that you're alive
And my river of blood won't run dry
I never wanted to lose you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart

And it feels like I've been buried alive by love
If I should die before I wake
Pray no one my soul to take
And if I wake before I die,
Rescue me with your smile

Oh, they say to cry is to know that you're alive
But my river of tears has run dry
I never wanted to fool you, no
But a cold heart is a dead heart
And a deserted soul is gone
A cold heart is a dead heart

And it feels like I've been buried alive by love
If I should die before I wake
Pray no one my soul to take
And if I wake before I die,
Rescue me with your smile




4. WICKED GAME

World was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
I'd never dreamed that I'd meet somebody like you
And I'd never dreamed that I'd need somebody like you

No I wanna fall in love
This world is only gonna break your heart
No I wanna fall in love
This world is only gonna break your heart
..With you

What a wicked game to play
To make me feel this way
What a wicked thing to do
To let me dream of you
What a wicked thing to say
You never felt this way
What a wicked thing to do
To make me dream of you

No I wanna fall in love
This world is only gonna break your heart
No I wanna fall in love
this world is only gonna break your heart
..With you

World was on fire, no-one could save me but you
It's strange what desire will make foolish people do
No and I never dreamed that I'd love somebody like you
I'll never dream that I lose somebody like you, no

And I wanna fall in love
This world is only gonna break your heart
Now I wanna fall in love
This world is only gonna break your heart
..With you

Nobody loves no-one




5. 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)




6. VAMPIRE HEART

You can't escape the wrath of my heart
Beating to your funeral song
All faith is lust for hell regained
And love dust in the hands of shame

Let me bleed you this song of my heart deformed
And lead you along this path in the dark
Where I belong until I feel your warmth

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart

I am the thorns in every rose, you've been sent by hope
I am the nightmare waking you up from the dream of a dream of love

Let me weep you this poem as heaven's gates close
And paint you my soul scarred and alone
Waiting for your kiss to take me back home

Hold me like you held on to life
When all fears came alive and entombed me
Love me like you loved the sun
Scorching the blood in my vampire heart




7. POISON GIRL

I did it all just for her
I did it all just for her
And love's heart is death
For me and my poison girl

A prey she was for the cruelty of love
While its serpent inside crawled straight
Towards her heart
The coldest kiss
Love ceased to exist
While we grew apart like never befire

The fire in her eyes grew dim and then died
As the poison inside reached her heart
And the coldest bliss faith ceased to exist
As we grew apart like never before

And the taste of the poison on her lips
Is of a tomb




8. DEAD LOVERS 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




9. JOIN ME (IN DEATH)

Join me in death
Baby join me in death
Baby join me in death
Baby join me in death

We are so young
Our lives have just begun
But already we're considering
Escape from this world

And we've waited for so long
For this moment to come
Was so anxious to be together
Together in death

Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death
Won't you die
Baby join me in death
Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death

This world is a cruel place
And we're here only to lose
So before live tears us apart let
Death bless me with you

Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death
Won't you die
Baby join me in death
Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death

This live ain't worth living
This live ain't worth living
This live ain't worth living
This live ain't worth living

Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death
Won't you die
Baby join me in death
Won't you die tonight for love
Baby join me in death

Baby join me in death




10. IT'S ALL TEARS

I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love
I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love
Open your arms and let me show
you what love can be like
It's all tears and it will be
'Til the end of your time
Come closer my love
Will you let me tear your hearth apart?
Now all holp is gone so drown in this love
I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love
I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love
So my love your laughter is finally
Turning into tears
And you're begging for more though
The end is getting near
Come closer my love
I'll violate you in the most sensual way...
Until you drown in this love
I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love
I'm waiting for you to drown in my love
So open your arms
I'm waiting for you to open your arms
And drown in this love




11. 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




12. KILLING LONELINESS

Memories, sharp as daggers
Pierce into the flesh of today
Suicide of love took away all that matters
And buried the remains in an unmarked grave in your heart

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me,
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
I'm killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

Nailed to the cross, together
As solitude begs us to stay
Disappear in the lie forever
And denounce the power of death over our souls and secret words are said to start a war

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me,
Oh, I'm killing loneliness with you
I'm killing loneliness that turned my heart into a tomb
I'm killing loneliness

Killing loneliness

With the venomous kiss you gave me
I'm killing loneliness (killing loneliness)
With the warmth of your arms you saved me




13. SOUL ON FIRE

There's a flame
That leads all souls astray
No one's safe
From its tender touch of pain
Everyday
It's looking for new slaves
To celebrate
The beauty of the grave

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and a soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
With a frozen heart and a soul on fire

Again
We're falling for disgrace
And hate
Will shelter us from the rain
We are enslaved
By the sacred heart of shame
And gently raped by the light of day

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and a soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
With a frozen heart and a soul on fire

Addicted to our divine despair
The venom of the cross we bear
The guilt will follow us to death

We are like the living dead
Sacrificing all we have
For a frozen heart and a soul on fire
We are like the living dead
Craving for deliverance
With a frozen heart and a soul on fire

With a soul on fire...




14. YOUR SWEET SIX SIX SIX

There are things you should know
The distance between us seems to grow
But you're holding on strong
Oh how hard it is to let go
And so hard to let go

I'm waiting for your call
And I'm ready to take your six six six in my heart
I'm longing for your touch
And I welcome your sweet six six six in my heart
Oh my love

I'm losing my faith in you
But you don't want it to be true
But there's nothing you can do
And there is nothing you can do
Yes I've lost my faith in you

I'm waiting for your call
And I'm ready to take your six six six in my heart
I'm longing for your touch
And I welcome your sweet six six six in my heart

How long we have to wait
For love is fading so slowly
I know it's too late
Oh my god you're so lonely




15. 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




16. THE FUNERAL OF HEART

Love's the funeral of hearts and an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood on flowers of evil in bloom
The funeral of hearts and a plea for mercy
When love is a gun separating me from you

She was the sun shining upon the tomb of your hopes and dreams so frail
He was the moon painting you with it's glow so vulnerable and pale

Love's the funeral of hearts and an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood on flowers of evil in bloom
The funeral of hearts and a plea for mercy
When love is a gun separating me from you

She was the wind carrying in all the troubles and fears you've for years tried to forget
He was the fire, restless and wild and you were like a moth to that flame

The funeral of hearts

The heretic seal beyond divine
A prayer to god who's deaf and blind
The last rites for souls on fire
Three little words and a question: why?

Love's the funeral of hearts and an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood on flowers of evil in bloom
The funeral of hearts and a plea for mercy
When love is a gun separating me from you

The funeral of hearts and an ode for cruelty
When angels cry blood on flowers of evil in bloom
