Cradle of Filth - Nymphetamine

  1. 1. English lesson: 2009-6-10 Topic: Music – Cradle of Filth Cradle of Filth – The Band Origin: Suffolk, England Genre(s): Extreme metal Years active: Since 1991 Cradle of Filth are an extreme metal band from Suffolk, England, formed in 1991. They have been embraced and disowned with equal fervour by various metal communities, and their particular subgenre has provoked a great deal of discussion. The band's musical style evolved from black metal to a cleaner and more "produced" amalgam of gothic metal, symphonic black metal and other extreme metal styles, while their lyrical themes and imagery are heavily influenced by gothic literature, poetry, mythology and horror films. Cradle of Filth - Nymphetamine Evanescent like the scent of decay I was fading from the race When in despair, my darkest days Ran amok and forged her face From the fairest of handmaidens to A slick perverted wraith 1-4
  2. 2. English lesson: 2009-6-10 Topic: Music – Cradle of Filth Nymphetamine Heaving midst narcissus On a maledict blanket of stars She was all three wishes Sex, sex, sex A lover hung on her death row I was hooked on her disease Highly strung like Cupid’s bow Whose arrows hungered meat And the blinding flare of passion In the shade of narrow streets Where their poison never rationed All the tips they left in me Two tracks Bric-a-brac Something passed between us Like a bad crack I believed I’d met another kind Of rat In fact With every Rome inside me Licked and ransacked She haunted at the corners of my mind In black Cataracts Wouldn’t whitewash away Her filthy smoke stack She burnt me like a furnace For my future suicide LEAD to the river Midsummer, I waved A ‘V’’ of black swans On with hope to the grave through Red September with skies fire-paved I begged you appear Like a thorn for the holy ones 2-4
  3. 3. English lesson: 2009-6-10 Topic: Music – Cradle of Filth Cold was my soul Untold was the pain I faced when you left me A rose in the rain... So I swore to the razor That never, enchained Would your dark nails of faith Be pushed through my veins again Bared on your tomb I am a prayer for your loneliness And would you ever soon Come above onto me? For once upon a time From the binds of your lowliness I could always find The right slot for your sacred key Six feet deep is the incision In my heart, that barless prison Discolours all with tunnel vision Sunsetter Nymphetamine Sick and weak from my condition This lust, this vampyric addiction To her alone in full submission None better Nymphetamine Nymphetamine, nymphetamine Nymphetamine girl Nymphetamine, nymphetamine My nymphetamine girl Wracked with your charm I am circled like prey Back in the forest Where whispers persuade More sugar trails More white lady laid Than pillars of salt... fade to my arms Hold their mesmeric sway And dance to the moon As we did in those golden days Christening stars I remember the way 3-4
  4. 4. English lesson: 2009-6-10 Topic: Music – Cradle of Filth We were needle and spoon Mislaid in the burning hay Bared on your tomb I’m a prayer for your loneliness And would you ever soon Come above onto me? For once upon a time From the bind of your holiness I could always find The right slot for your sacred key Six feet deep is their incision In my heart, that barless prison Discolours all with tunnel vision Sunsetter Nymphetamine Sick and weak from my condition This lust, this vampyric addiction To her alone in full submission None better Nymphetamine Sunsetter Nymphetamine (Nymphetamine) None better Nymphetamine Two tracks Bric-a-brac Something passed between us Like a bad crack I believed I’d met another kind Of rat In fact With every Rome inside me Licked and ransacked She haunted at the corners of my mind In black Cataracts Wouldn’t whitewash away Her filthy smoke stack She burnt me like a furnace For my future suicide 4-4
