the black goddess rises lyrics – cradle of filth

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 bleed christ in your arms

you are in my dreams
the darkness in my eyes
the rapture in their screams
black goddess arise

nothing will keep us apart
we could kill them all
if our desire tore free
our union as one, sweet, sinful eve

and the night draws in beside her
as we embrace the dark side by side
i pour my soul in those eyes full of fire
to harvest the seed ploughed inside her

archangel, snare the flesh
such dry the ebbing wound
leave them lifeless and broken
my beloved…

oh, how i craved for you
you so pure and other-worldly with your scent of winter
am i to bleed myself dry 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 f*cking nazarene
ah… the lies… the jew… i kill for you…

you are in my dreams
the darkness in my eyes
the rapture in their screams
black goddess arise

hidden l*sts will break the gates and swarm
as love secretes the thrill for war
the virgin raped shall seek to wh*r*
she-wolf bare your snarling jaw

thee i invoke, bornless one
all woman, pure predator
wherein conspiracy and impulse dwell
like a seething fall from grace

thou art darkest gabrielle
lilith who rode the steed
thou art pale hecate
rising from thessaly
