Dimmu Borgir – The Night Masquerade lyrics

A scarlet sunset
The threshold to nightplay
A sinful oath is to be sworn
A beckoning bloodlust
Among the seekers
Tyrranic hunger yearns
A gathering in flames and fires-
Devil's daughters dance
Scourged in filth, obscene and lewd-
Longing for dark desires
The nocturnal beast appears
In an evil despotic shape
Expectant watching gracelessly
Before demanding the s***s of lust
(the Beast)
"Come forth harlots, let's begin!"
(the Beast approaches:)
"Rise and give praise in front of Me
And receive eternal life from Me!
Welcome my spirit in jonour of Me!
So drink of the blood I provide you
And you shall all forever wander in the shadows of death..!
(the chanting whores:)
"Oh yes, Master! Let us receive
Thine offer and drink with Thee!
And become a part of Thy realm
With lust, s** and sodomy-
For we are those who seek life eternally..!
(the Beast:)
"Blood is life and it shall be all ours!"
