Love Lies Bleeding

Behold My Vain Sacrifice tracks

Lyrics

1. The Lady Who Didn't Want To Be

Plus triste que la pierre, la fleur du mal.
Oh rage! Au vent, poussières du parfum infernal.
Aime-moi, hais-moi sorcière! Oh, fleur fatale!
Que tes épines déchirent ma chair. Que brûle leur idéal...
Like a worm eating a rose, like a black butterfly
Who draws the precious liquor, the essence of the real.
Like a man who never cries, like a woman who never kills,
The incarnate melancholy has enthroned all my being.
She had the darkest smile but tears in her eyes.
Delighted in sadness...Sad in happiness.
The egoistic despair she felt,
The tragical irony I saw in her soul.
Enslaved by her fate, she knew her end.
My veins are chains that rip my heart.
All joy has gone away.
Even the snake of suffering is crying.
Reality has become chimera.
Good and evil have no more sense.
Black and white are no longer opposed,
To become one. I am alone, all alone.
Oh! Funeral ballerina! Your dance macabre is complete.
Oh! Dark dove! Your have taken your majestic flight.
I am lost in an ocean of bitterness.
I am drowning.
Eaten by the creatures of regrets.
I only feel apathy...Oh! Mighty apathy...
I stand motionless in the moist of my sorrow.
I remember her cold carcass, when she was not a carrion anymore.
The scythe has cut the roots of my tortured mind.
I fall irresistibly toward my destiny.
Her outstreched hand getting out the abyss grips my flesh and my soul.
Her palms become blades that brings the shadows.
The angel cries become tears of blood.
The demon's laughters become icy moans. A raven is born... A star starts to shine...
My veins open, a flower wills...I close my eyes and see...




2. The Flowers Of Nevermore

A memory so cold now, as I weep on your graves...
Like withered rose petals, some drops of bloodfall on the marble
Through a veil of tears my eyes look a last time at the darkening sky
I know I will never see it burning in its twilight's blaze again
And yet I can only feel the caress of the winds that are rising for me
The cold look of the awakening stars...sublime infinity!
Night of solitude, inspire me in my end
Let the curtains fallat last, and let me leave you tonight
I can hear your voices among the call of the stars
I know this infinity before my eyes is taking me away
This blessed vertigo makes me feel renewed
The night is ours forever
Open your arms, be my poison, and help me reach the deges of time
Rise winds as I stand for the last time before you
Carry my soul, fly with my words
To the land where they lay and wait
Tell them that soon I will come to them
This earth crumbles below me
The stars open the gates to eternity
Oh muses that once inspired my words
The nine of you have betrayed and deserted me
Now I hear inly the sad song of the mermaids of the night
Come to me spirits that alive I couldn't see!
*And show me the way to the world of regrets
And let mecry forever, as a forlorn entity lost in time
Night of solitude, inspire me in my end
Open the doors that lie beyond
And greet me in your arms
Oh infamous blade, you look upon my despondant heart
With such a greedy look, and yet you guide me to my rest and peace!
(Until nothing remains, I will be waiting for my end
Life passed by, and yet nothing remained...)
The caress of the steel, the embrace of the night
Now I feel my body's falling
But my soul will reach the sky...
Beware! Spirits from heaven or hell sent
Neither kingdom I wish
But the infinite plenitude of the burning horizon
You! That dwells in the air
Beware of my wrath!
No god nor devil to take me from emptiness
So dismiss when I say!
Sweet coldness of iron, come and rape my wrist
Oh caress of steel, embrace of night
Twilight of my life
Rebirth of my soul
Oh caress of steel, embrace of night
Every night let me die again
For I long the kiss of...death
Looking down on the earth
My body lays they cry around
I am dead and yet my eyes do cry
I am dead and yet my mouth do smile...
You haunting ghosts of the past come to me
Great winds set my soul free to wander
You haunting ghosts of the past come to me
And let me join your garden of nevermore
Horned angels take my soul far beyond
Where the sun never rises never sets




3. Virtue's Dusk

" Je suis la fille du désespoir, la maladie mortelle,
Une messaline vêtue de noir qui inlassablement t'appelle "
The horizon starts to bleed, the sky closes its eyes
And cries tears of crystal and of ebony.
A new age of mourning and warm tragedy
Spread like a mist of incandescent ashes in my soul. Once again...
A symphony of endurable pleasure ablazes my heart
When I hear these whispers from the dark: her lamentations...
The call of the snake embraces me,
I feel infamous desires: flesh, fire, fever...Despair of temptation..
A purple cyclone, deep in my eyes, becomes my only god,
Just because of her lamentations...
(Suddenly): the celestial vault opens a new eye, white as ivory:
A pale queen dressed with black clouds, midnight! My time has come!
The wind sweeps away my fear, the wind brings the sin,
The flower of all sweet diseases,
A mighty desire surrounds my weak mind, erases my memory:
I'm no longer what I was. I become a new slave of the fleshy plague
When a wave of red darkness mermerizes my consciousness.
Black star! Why did you turn your light on me?
Now what I want most is her lips
Lethal desire! Consume me with ecstasy
Orpheus my love! Come and close your wings on me...
" Juste un instant charnel... "
The icons scream, the virgin cries,
SSShe has lost one of her children just because of her lamentations
My existence melts in this night without end...
Eros, sad spirit, dies in forgetting, forsaken by my heart, denied by my feelings.
Angels dies in my heaven, beheaded by my witch.
Morbid visions assault me a wolf's rage invade me: I come!
Eternité charnelle...
Viens avec moi dans ce brouillard, possédé par l'anathème.
Laisse-toi mourir, il est trop tard. Je t'aime...
The osmose reaches its climax, we have come one:
Virtue and vice...Vice as virtue...




4. I Drown In Existence

[Part I: Aporetic Love]

I am the mighty sun when she is the frozen moon.
Our light will never rejoin.
Carry me in the night, in the kingdom of my bride,
When her beauty is so real and pure.
But in this dark immensity, my heart would be drowned,
Submerged by the infernal sea of darkness.
"I cried so many times, I feel inadequacy.
My heart is invided by emptiness, my sorrow will never end.
I am enslaved by myself, my prison is my life.
Save me from determinism...
The wall of multitude can't be broken.
We are nothing but weak unities.
We are lost...

[Part II: Grave Of Desire]

My only deed was to love, falling in a grave of desire.
My sentence will be immortality in darkness and sorrow.
The limpid feeling can't be felt during poor human life.
I was the spirit lover, now I become real.
All ideals are lies.
Non-senses to overcome.
You can't be free in this miserable world.
Forget what you know and listen to your soul!
Tragical concepts are running into my mind.
I just wanted tranquillity and emptiness.
Transubstantation from abstract to concrete...
Life's not a dream anymore.
Here comes the ages of chaos, the ages of blood.
Time has come to suffer...Why did you give me your hand?
Time has come to suffer...Now we live...We are lost.
Come to me! Pale light of hope!
Your embrace can close these eyes.
Be the poison that runs into my veins
And spread your wings for me.
Through being, through cold existence,
Your heat can burn the power.
Even the last mighty light can't annihilate the raven of life.
Our love can't be saved...Lies invade everything...I cry as I bleed...
A mournful requiem come with my first breath
As I drown in existence...
Love lies bleeding.
Stabbed by a blade called " life "
Stabbed by a blade called " lie "
My screams are pathetic, my tears have lost their taste,
My will become useless.
This is the end...




5. Incarnatus

The remote valley of my life was haunted by faceless shadows
Guilty of willing to live. I lost the remnants of my insouciance in the garden of grief
My contrite eyes have no more tears and my blood wishes it could run free
Funeral lamentations come to my ears...
My dark oratorio ends and with its dying echoes will I leave
Let me satiate the earth with my blood
Let fallen angels free my soul and end my penitence.
