Amourex de la mort

You are in thrall to darkness
Amourex de la mort
Your skull but an entry
A terrible door

You yearn for submission
To death’s ancient lore
Your life is but forfeit
Its worth you ignore

You long for oblivion
Its void like embrace
Amourex de la mort
So fallen from grace

You’ve forgotten that living
Is what you are for
Your romantic obsession
Amourex de la mort
