Absinthe with Faust Lyrics - Cradle Of Filth

Review The Song (7)



Pour the emerald wine
Into crystal glasses
We will touch the divine
Through kissed catharsis

Let us pitch to the seven-year itch
Of the ultra-decadent
To a tainted world and the painted girls
That our fantasies spent

Tripping through boudoirs laced with opiate themes
Sipping the bizarre, tasting copious dreams
A toast to those most sacrilegious of days
Where for every whim won
One soon repays

We touched the stars
That now laugh from afar
At we, the damned
sponsored links
The damned
The damned
The damned

We have spent our time
Drenched in opulent splendour
But when midnight chimes
Will gilded souls surrender?

Let us drink on the giddying brink
Of pools of excrement
All manner of shit for the glamour and glitz
Mephistopheles lent

I remember the night as if it were engraved
A bright marble bridge stretched across dark waves
To the shore from the moon and by Her grace
Came that erudite stranger
That fucker

He was a predator, creditor cold
Our blood was young on the yellowing scroll
And all that glittered was not gold
But we wanted everything
And for it all lost our souls

Come my friend, to fate let's raise
Two finger shots at this our last soiree
For tomorrow I fear
Swoops all too deadly near
This precipitous weir to Hell's high gate

We touched the stars
That now laugh from afar
At we, the damned
The damned
The damned
The damned

He was a predator, creditor cold
Our blood was young on the yellowing scroll
And all that glittered was not gold
But we wanted everything
And for it all lost our souls
Our souls

It's strange how no one mentions that this song is a tribute to the Faust folk legend, possibly more specifically the play by C. Marlowe called Doctor Faustus. Everything Dani writes (exceptionally) in these lyrics have relevance to the Faust story. Epic song, epic lyrics, epic band.

Excellent song | Reviewer: Palfium | 4/3/13

Is very reminiscent of my own struggle with opioid addiction
"Tripping through boudoirs laced with opiate themes
Sipping the bizarre, tasting copious dreams
A toast to those most sacrilegious of days
Where for every whim won
One soon repays
We touched the stars
That now laugh from afar
At we, the damned
The damned
The damned
The damned

He was a predator, creditor cold
Our blood was young on the yellowing scroll
And all that glittered was not gold
But we wanted everything
And for it all lost our souls
Our souls

By far my favorite song by CoF, the lyrical story is simply amazing and the sound more than just striking at first listen. Simply brutal what more can be said!

Awesome | Reviewer: Josh | 10/7/06

This song would be my favourite from the Nymphetamine album, even though all of the songs are great.

The individualily of this song alone is...hoorah!

Cradle of Filth rule!!!!!!!!!! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/26/05

Yet another COF classic, nymphetamine in general is an outstanding, thought inspiring album, which cements the band's status as one of the best black metallers of all time. Cradle have obviously benefitted tremendously from teeming up with roadrunner for this album as each track is much more individual than we have seen in the past (damnation and a day springs to mind). However Cradle are still as brutal and unforgiving as ever, which is what we all like to see. This particular track also highlights Dani's impressive vocal range.

best.song.ever. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 9/8/05

this song is awesome! possibly cradles best song ever?

A great song. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/7/05

Absinthe with Faust is the best song from CoF's new album.. but it's kinda difficult to find the full lyrics of the song. This site is another proof for the upper sentence :{
