    "Scorched Earth Erotica" Lyrics

    Cradle Of Filth

    Sunset, expect
    This to be your last with Our vast return
    As Death is set
    At three sixes where hill-beacons burn

    Darkness, undress
    Your descending skirts yield a thirsting altar
    Blood-red, yet still unfed
    Lips distend ending time to falter

    Welcome arms wide and crucified...
    the slaughter

    Lightning freezes seven
    Outtakes from the rape of the world
    Sins expelled from Heaven
    Now befoul from the bowels of Hell

    Where the tragic in theory and practice fell

    Last prayers, hang in the air
    Each unto their own rag and bonemeal saviours
    Strung where crippled vultures dare
    Coughs another cross to grave God's failure

    One the forest spired
    Nurtured in Nature's heart
    Now great cedars feed the pyres
    Need-fires lit for greater harm

    As Her children toy with razors

    Sightless and deeply scarred
    And the moon arose to phase Her
    Cracks a grin so wide it hides the stars

    And lights Our path
    Back through the shattered glass

    Where the tragic in theory and practice meet

    Deranged, uncaged
    We rage like a plague through this age of greed
    Sowers of discord, growing wars to reap
    A terrible crop to beat a vicious retreat

    Sorched Earth, rebirth
    Disintered in the writhe of the lone survivor
    Whose worth is worse than the curse
    Of Sardonicus choking on his own saliva

    Who shares the last laugh now
    Dead wedded fates fulfil their vows?
    Foot in mouth of sacred cows
    Facedown in dust and poisened ground...
