01. The Glow Of The Flames

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
Temptation awaits as she opens the gates
and I kneel down before her
The scent of her rides in the breath of the night
and I'm breathing the curse

I breathe and I drown in the circle of fire
the glow of the flames
And I embrace the demon-desire
the glow of the flames in my eyes

The pleasure and pain... now they are the same
for I have fell from grace
I've been waiting for so long for the feeling this strong
for this bliss of escape

I breathe and I drown in this funeral pyre
the glow of the flames
and I embrace the demon-desire
the glow of the flames in my eyes


02. Love Infernal

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
Come...the thick night and breathe in me
Yes, come...with lifeless eyes and die with me
Burn... unleash the holy smoke to flee
Yes, burn... deceased and buried is misery

To live in desire is to play with the fire
that burns within our every cell
Dying eternal, love infernal... just one kiss to feel the spell
So fall and surrender the weak pretender
Don't resist the call of hell
Dying eternal, love infernal... just one kiss to feel the spell

Heart... kill the heart make the beating cease
Yes, heart... the chained emotions crave for release
Souls... together entwined in debauchery
Yes, souls... flee beyond divinity


03. The State

Music by Kukkonen
Lyrics by Laihiala
In my darkest hour I breathe out the name and sigh
I'm for her to devour to rape with whips of shame... and I sigh

The state I ache to be in, the state I crave for

The bringer of the night
reveals the blessing disguised with one touch
A shepherd for her blind, a light into these eyes... with one touch

The state I ache to be in, the state I crave for

So, can you see I believe by the blood that I seep
that it's worth all the hurt
and the tears that I desperately weep
Can you see I believe and no longer grieve
And it's worth all the hurt and the fears that I desperately keep


04. All Else Is Hollow

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
Lust equals fire when you come to me
Obsession and craving burning inside of me
Pain feeds desire as you cut me deep
Sharpened caresses of debauchery

It runs through my veins and through my heart
assuring that death won't do us part
Then leaving me craving torn apart... I just want you

Rust equals blood and I hear you sigh
"pain will be gone in a blink of an eye"
Fear turns to dust with a blissful cry
Self-pollution's how we cleanse the lie... I just want you

It's useless to tame, so useless to point your fingers and blame
the hunger that's screaming out your name
It's needless to say, I need you inside my heart to stay
All else is cleansed away, all else is hollow anyway


05. In Lust

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
It comes again... the state I love and hate
It comes again... I am lost yet I have faith
I'm so high on you

The nature of you is to keep on fulfilling the need
The nature of me is to drown with the next defeat

Time after time you bleed your tears for me
Time after time... for me

When fear of life keeps crawling in she wipes it all away
Day turns to night repeats the sin
I'm in lust so let love reign

It comes again... cos you're fuel to this desire
It comes again... cos you make the flames burn higher
I'm so high on you


06. The Exciter

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
You're under my skin the poison within
Diabolical rapture that's dripping with sin
Break down my will, a kiss for the kill
Bury me deep between death and the thrill

Your name is desire, loins of fire
The lust incarnate, an angel, a liar
Break down my will, a kiss for the kill
Bury me deep between death and the thrill

Let glow red the poison sun and the flame to make me numb
Let me hear the words witch I have been dying to hear
Burn my fingers one by one, guide me down into the sun
Let me show you how I crave to make you come

You looked at me deep and made me weep
You gave me my sin, my soul now keep
Broke down my will, kissed for the kill
Buried me deep between death and the thrill


07. Lay Your Heart To Rest

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
I've fallen from grace into the kingdom of shadowlands
into the pleasure's nest
This pale death on my face I've come to love and understand
when I laid my heart to rest

And I believe in one thing forevermore, to live is to love the pain
And I feel like I never felt before, the rapture of dying

Slow, deep and hard through your frail and virgin mind
will flow ist lifeless zest
Take it in your heart and you will become my kind
just lay your heart to rest

And you believe in one thing forevermore, to live is to love pain
And you feel like you never felt before, the rapture of dying
And you believe in one thing forevermore, to live is to love pain
And you feel like you never felt before, the rapture of dying


08. With Her I Die

Music by Kukkonen
Lyrics by Laihiala
Her sharpened nails in my flesh make me crave for more
Her chilling cold caress makes me feel so warm
She's my addiction, the one... the one I love , my whore
She's my redemption, the one... the one I hate and adore

And with her I die
And for her I die
She's my mistress of pain

I burn in flames of lust... I covet, I crave, I desire
In her I lay all my trust as the flames grow higher
She's my addiction, the one...the one I love , my whore
She's my redemption, the one... the one I hate and adore

And with her I die
And for her I die
and therefore I sigh, she's my mistress of pain


09. Illusion/Delusion

Music by Kukkonen
Lyrics by Laihiala
And she cradles me down into sleep
Still I miss her so and for more I weep
And she gives me death yet I'm alive
Craving eternally, on her I thrive

We are one, we are the same
Burning with brightest flame

I am the strange illusion, don't feel too real
A catatonic thing that should not be
You are the seewt delusion yet you feel so real
for all these wounds I have only you can heal

And she buries me down far too deep
Yet six-feet high and gives me bliss to keep
And she abuses me yet I abide
She's in demand, my hunger I cannot hide


10. The Kiss Of Death

Music & lyrics by Laihiala
Close... the shadows creep close
A failure drifting lost in cold embrace
Pain...every cut of pain
Makes him bleed and weak, fall from grace

On and on I bleed... on and on I bleed

Walk... circles I walk
Awaiting for that sweet cure to seep in
Night... I'm breathing the night
It conceals the stairway to heaven within

Drive into the night... I drive into the night
Drunk on pain I taste the kiss of death

It's just as I dreamed this feeling surreal fades my life away
And yes, it's meant to be this way, no more fears or pain
As death is talking care of my life
