Widow Show us your devotion And throw yourself on your husband's pyre Blushing bride Is it your obligation To carry out the ritual And join him in the fire Widow, burn Are you honest Are you a righteous woman Then wear the fire Or face the eyes of condemnation Are you of value A nonexistent burden Or with grand veneration Just immolate amid great fanfare No pressure Dutiful wife The blazing fire turns Flesh and bone to ash Honourable sacrifice Forever chaste The blazing fire turns Flesh and bone to ash Purged of her sins Forever chaste

My Solitude 08:04
Alone, but not forlorn In the ardour of love, I roar Alone, but not forlorn In existence, I burn away Detached from the crowd Further alone, I go Alas, I shall be free of you Clearing my realm of the mess Which appears and interferes with life Seeking which can only be achieved With spells of emptiness Farewell, imprudence Farewell Further on my way Treading the path of solitude To better understand who I am And contemplate my place in this world Don't cry for me Here I lie Don't pray for me There I hold Just let me go Alone There is one I will forever belong to I can still feel my soul inside you (Shed no tears) Don't cry for me Here I lie (Save your prayers) Don't pray for me There I hold Just let me go Alone

Waxing in scorpio Intensity and desire Having to hold my own umbrella Doesn't seem great to me I'm angry I woke up again I'm cursed! Devoid of life I feel so empty I need something To make me feel alive again It's all so grey Paralyzed by exhaustion and pain Literally Mildly psychotic even I know my body won't handle the sunshine Consider the stress I'm under I cannot think in this heat! Devoid of life I feel so empty I need something To make me feel alive again It's all so grey I feel nothing No longer scream crying I think I'm ready for alcohol This all could have been with no hurt feelings I don't know how much more of this I can take My face hurts Devoid of life I feel so empty I need something To make me feel alive again It's all so grey

Aqua Tofana 05:52
Manna di San Nicola Blessed be, Lady Giulia Arsenic, belladonna, and lead Six hundred women, freed From six hundred men, dead Astrologa della Lungara O magic spell, O euphoria Serve the wine Within it, venom, slipped undetected Hath taken ill, the symptoms Rid him to the hell of his bed His spirit endures As he is absorbed by death The curtain falls to his dying breath He wrote the will And repented the errors of his ways Sweet mariticide - her secret to the grave I know I must die Someone has given me Aqua Tofana I know you must die Someone has given you Aqua Tofana Til death do us part

Autumn Song 07:41
Twas the tenth day of fall She's red and living blood (and burning like fire) Her hair It pours a rich merlot From below the October sun Descending sun Just like an apparition (her flowing leather fringe) Perverse, and O so profound Bewitched Dripping hypnotic poison A menstrual libation to which I am bound A bellowing mass Congregates the burial ground An oath sworn in blood And in autumn's decay We drown She loves them red I want to kill you and eat you she said Yes, my love, I do I want to be killed and eaten By you
6.
I don't want to succumb To the ravages of age It feels I've already planted One foot in my grave My back is out And my knees are weak From what I've been told I'm long past my peak But if I ever forget you Never you frown And you have my permission To put me down Put me down I can't seem to spring Out of bed these days My hair is falling out And what's left is fading to grey So darlin', you will know When it's time for me to go When the visible signs Of old age begin to show But if I ever forget you Never you frown And you have my permission To put me down Put me down Goddamn this frailty
