View Full Version : Kiss the Rattlesnake

These are lyrics that I wrote for my band Frostbitten Sunsets. If anyone has time, I would love feedback. Hope all is well.

1) Kiss the Rattlesnake

The perilous path to paradise
Ominous omens in disguise
I left my soul at sunrise
On the beaches to be sacrificed

Orchestrated oblivion
Choreographed chaos

A ravenous rendezvous
Of insatiable lust
Kiss the rattlesnake
And poison your trust

Orchestrated oblivion
Choreographed chaos

The strongest aphrodisiac is curiosity
When the mystery is solved
The sweetest ambrosia loses its flavor
And passion slowly withers

2) Midnight Lovers

Two midnight lovers by the lake
The moonlight dances across the crystal water
I savor the taste from your luscious lips
And softly caress your beautiful hips
Warm velvet skin moves across me

Forever seems so far away
While lying in your loverís arms

My heart is an elegant cathedral
Exquisite designs of romance
Decorate the walls and the ceiling
Down the hallway, I hear angelic voices
Singing of priceless love

Your Judas Kiss was soft and tender
Betrayed by a seductive Aquarius
With lips blood red and nefarious
Pain and punishment are vicarious

My heart is a brothel
A revolving door of lost souls
Foreign lips and a strangerís hips
Cold scaly skin moves across me

Whether in celestial spheres
Or circles of the inferno
The concept of forever
Has become crystal clear
Outside of your arms

3) Casanova Illusion

On warm summer nights, I lay beneath the sheets
My lover asleep beside me
As the moonlight dances through the bedroom window
I know why Iím cursed to shiver

You trusted me with your heart
And I smashed it to pieces
You wanted a soul mate
And I wanted to play Casanova

I could break a thousand hearts
And still not come close
To the pain I caused you
When I stabbed you in the back

I left you broken and bleeding
In a desolate wasteland of despair
Cold and lonely, I watched you shiver
As the love faded from your eyes

Rationalization is the antidote to a guilty conscience
So as I found carnal delights and sweet ecstasy
Between the sheets with strangers
I told myself, all is fair in love and war

But time and karma are strange bedfellows
And the charm and seduction
Of my cult of personality
Began to wither and fade

I could offer a half-hearted mea culpa
Or simply the truth
That vanity is almost irresistible
Once youíve had a taste
