A Silhouette Of Suffering

lyrics

The faint horn of the hunt sings and the echo of the hounds ring deep
Where death greats poor Bassianus by the hands of dear Demetrius and Chiron
Brothers, born of the Goth whore, bred for treachery and for torture
Their eyes fix on the dear girl, their sadistic desires now unfurl
 
Left in a lingering perdition, a living hell
Her lament in the dead of the night heard by a midnight knell
A silhouette of suffering, with no one to tell
If she had just but one thing to speak, their names she would yell
 
The raping of Lavinia- Oh, the sweet sound of surrender
The divine blood of this virgin shall be spilled now by converging to pain
They came henceforth to maim her and to ravish the remainder
To quench their thirst for blind lust; evil deeds grow with every thrust of hate

The morning mist rolls by, and listening, angels cry
A funeral dirge is heard, fallen ones sing the word
 
"Summon Hell and its fury! On this night I call to you.
Bring hence ten thousand men at arms to fight with Rome so true."
 
Tears descend to unite with blood stained lips tonight
A crimson soliloquy; bringing solace from tragedy
 
"Come forth with no mercy, with lies they've slain my sons!
Brought death and destruction of my kin, they've come undone!"
 
All the blood from their throats, and all that's come from their lies
All that's ground from their bones, be baked for their mother is nigh
 
"In the night it's hard to see, I let the moonlight guide me.
My pulse is quickened by the virtue fading from her.
These woods are ruthless, dreadful, deaf and dull,
Endearing the framework to maim and satisfy my lust."
 
Despite all the vengeance at hand, in her dreams things seem so real
When she awakes from her slumber there's no way to wipe the tears

The gentle tongue that now wails, soon will never whisper this tale
For it will kiss the cold knife, severing the secrets of this strife
Left cold, bare and broken; a blood-soaked, naked token
Of the disdain for Andronicus, the name screamed when the blade bit in her wrists
 
Left in a lingering perdition, a living hell
Her lament in the dead of the night heard by a midnight knell
A silhouette of suffering, with no one to tell
If she had just but one thing to speak, their names she would yell
