    "Tearing The Veil From Grace" Lyrics

    Cradle Of Filth

    Biblical choirs soar beyond veiled light
    A swansong for ravens trapped flapping in night

    A tragic yet magickal fall from grace
    Too awful to taste for the led and the chaste
    Those whose long fetters are addressed to all saints

    Free shining souls torn from God's given Reich
    Defiled, reviled, exiled from sight

    And Hell knows we sought victory
    Chancing the leash

    But when bad die were cast
    We were cast down to die
    A steeple of needles thrust into our eyes
    So scholars might say we were blinded by pride
    Like the sin of our Father
    Whom in Isaiah and Midian thrived
    Regaining his sights for the storming of

    And after descenturies have crawled, vilified
    Our dark harkened day on spread wing now arrives

    For eternity is a coprophagic
    Backward figure head
    Gorging on her own bitter end
    And we have eaten shit
    Until we're close to addicts
    Now grime is running out

    For us to make amends

    To retake what once was lost
    To exalt our throne above the stars of God

    To throw our fuck into gates and guts
    Of a severed neverland
    Where we, the damned
    Once pleasured ran
    Like seamen from the phallus sea

    Atrocious oceans must be crossed
    To exalt our throne above the stars of God

    The thirteenth sign of the Zodiac climbs
    Cowled and scythed to snuff the sunrise
    To snuff the sunrise

    Throwing shades of war before like prophecy
    Nightbreed freed from the vasty deep
    Nasty reap of freaks forsaken
    And when sultry dusk disrobes they'll learn
    She is not a natural blonde
    For the lower she goes the darker it grows
    An Eve that blows onhHer knees for Satan

    Fellated Satan
    Screams congeal in clotted pearl
    As he unfurls from aching hibernation

    Stormbringer drums thunder to full Dis orchestra
    As lighting streaks with fire
    Black clouds that shroud the Earth
    Whose cold breasts have held us in scar pillories
    But now the sun is loath to come
    The crescent moon is

    Elated Satan
    The scimitar slash to the undergash
    Of Heaven too slight for penetration

    We strike as wolves from the thickening fog
    To exalt our throne over the stars of God
    Lowly holy goats bare the brunt
    Of rabid dogmas on a stellar bearhunt
    Bastioned in citadels and monastic cells
    That smell of blessed cunt
    Like a convent where crosses rust
    From thirty dirty habits of shaved nun
    There where deeper needs are begged of lust
    And cess and less impress enough

    Obtaining the Lord of our Gaurdian Anger
    And Death's tunnel vision
    Bad thing in collision
    The locking of eyes and jagged antler

    Unpicking the seams of fate sewn over dreams
    Feasting from throats of celestial theives

    And God knows we seek victory
    Now that we are unleashed
    To drive nails home of blind faith through those
    Who drove us from error to terror below
    Refugees clung to a crown furred in flies
    Tarred with red honey, the plaster
    Of many a spire that aspired to rise
    Seeking Messiahs that by us soon

    In the start like a cast
    In morality plays
    Our hearts wore a mask
    Of dead rooks in the rain
    The World was our cloister
    No prayer, bent in shame
    Our once lucent plumage
    Stung with horn withered grey
    And away

    As aeons slew so we grew to myth
    Revenge accrued to a monolith
    Bursting through from our roofed abyss
    Like an aether greased fist
    Now vulvite gates are so sorely missed
    Our horror pours through the orifice
    Where once the spheres and archangels kissed

    Fellated Satan
    His coming assails
    The night in gales
    That bewail turned tides
    That engulf their nation

    Now divintity is a worm ridden mouth
    In a darkened high house
    Overrun by disease
    So let the truth be wrung
    From veil and sanctum undone
    That the banished ones intent
    On reinstatement have won

    We breathe by virtue of their rot
    Now our souls exult above the stars of
    Stars of God
