Cradle of Filth - The Black Goddess Rises Thee I invoke, bornless one All woman, pure predator Wherein conspiracy and impulse dwell Like a seething fall from grace Thee I worship... Thou art darkest Gabrielle Lilith who rode the steed Thou art pale Hecate Rising from Thessaly Crush their unworthy idols No church shall bar our path Seductive Evil, drink your fill Of the bleeding Christ in your arms You are in my dreams The darkness in my eyes The rapture in my screams Black Goddess arise Nothing will keep us apart We could kill them all If our desire tore free Our union is one, sweet, sinful Eve And the night draws in beside her As we embrace the dark side by side I pour my soul to those eyes full of fire To harvest the seed ploughed inside her Archangel, snare the flesh Suck dry the ebbing wound Leave them lifeless and broken My beloved... Oh, how I have craved for you You so pure and other-worldly with your scent of Winter Am I to bleed myself dry just to see your delight? And the fear retreats forever (Come to me... Black Goddess arise) When my secrets are buried in thine (Come to me... Black Goddess arise) Under seven stars we came together (Come to me... Black Goddess arise) To plot the new age's decline (Come to me... ARISE!) Ishtar my Queen Come forth to me And help me seize My future from the House of Death That in the release of immortality I should slay their fucking Nazarene Ah... the lies... the jew... I kill for you Hidden lusts will break the gates and swarm As love secretes the thrill for war The virgin raped shall seek to whore She-wolf bare your snarling jaw "Caught in thy net of shadows, What dreams hast thou to show? Who treads the silent meadows, To worship thee below?" [Traditional]
