Powerwolf – Venom Of Venus lyrics

Venom of Venus take us all for blind
Bringer of poison for the heart and mind
Never resist when your eyes inflame the wild
Venom of Venus or a fairytale
Sing of temptation when sirens wail
Out of our minds by the wonders you unveil

Come blessed desire bring us all to fail

We are the cursed we came form fire and ice
We are the first to kill the sinner for lies
We are the blessed, we crave the venom of Venus for life
All our life
We are the sword we tame the fire, the flame
We hail the lord we fear no rebel, no pain
We are possessed we have the venom of Venus in veins

Venom of Venus inundate our veins
Eradicate minds till only lust remains
Set us ablaze like the wake of hurricanes
Venom of Venus lead us all astray
Bring us the sin before the martyrs pray
Let it begin by the dawn of our judgement day

We are the cursed we came form fire and ice
We are the first to kill the sinner for lies
We are the blessed, we crave the venom of Venus for life
All our life
We are the sword we tame the fire, the flame
We hail the lord we fear no rebel, no pain
We are possessed we have the venom of Venus in veins

And in the eye of all the believing
Lead us straight to the curse divine
And by the time our hearts are healing
Inject the poison in our minds

We are the cursed we came form fire and ice
We are the first to kill the sinner for lies
We are the blessed, we crave the venom of Venus for life
We are the sword we tame the fire, the flame
We hail the lord we fear no rebel, no pain
We are possessed we have the venom of Venus in veins

    Venom of Venus has an anti-pornography message, or at least anti-immorality. The very title of the track references how obsession with women is a poison (venom is a direct linguistic descendant from "Venus").
    The second line of the song calls it "bringer of poison for the heart and mind". Almost universally, Christian theology considers pornography a deadly poison to both the heart, as it taints men's perception of women from being equal helpers to simply objects of pleasure, and mind, since it is as addictive as tobacco or alcohol. I understand that while Powerwolf is not a Christian band, they often use Christian themes, language, and messaging in their music (and are notably not critical of it).
    Much of the rest of the song reinforces the message. Another notable inclusion in the first verse is "Sing of temptation when the sirens wail". Sirens were, in Greek mythology, beautiful women who lived underwater that would sing to sailors trying to get them to jump overboard and drown. This reinforces the idea that the "Venom of Venus" is simply a trap and will destroy those who succumb to its call.
    The chorus is largely discussing how even "righteous" people still suffer from the desire to taste the venom (that is, watch porn) all their lives.
    The second verse includes a couple of notable lines. "Eradicate minds 'til only lust remains" again refers to the addictive quality of porn and how it can slowly consume the mind until it is the dominant thought. "Set us ablaze like the wake of hurricanes" brings to mind the punishment for lust in Hell and Purgatory in Dante's The Divine Comedy. In hell, the lustful are thrown about by violent winds, suffering their following of the winds of passion in life, corresponding to the "wake of hurricanes" line. In purgatory, Dante wrote that the penitents were burned free of their earthly lusts-"Set us ablaze".
    The bridge has a notable line calling the venom "the curse divine". In the mind of those caught in addiction to pornography, it is both a curse, as it poisons all of their relationships, and a blessing because of how good they feel.
    Hopefully this makes sense. This isn't am exhaustive analysis of the song but hopefully my thoughts are explained well enough to be understood.
