Lyrics

Lovelorn, we had felt a curse,
or, as Erebus only knows, worse.
Fogged by darkness, theirs,
hydrochloric words upon our ears.

Let others talk!
I know love now!
With you, undying,
it shall last for years.

Let others talk!
Let them talk!
I know love now!
With you, undying,
it shall last for years.

Day-in-day-out, scorching,
as they trade canards that
carry a reciprocal pungent smell
from their infernal dragon mouths.

Blowtorching!
But we did fire back!
We did fire back!

Let others talk! I know love now!
With you, undying, it shall last for years,
or as Eros, Mors, and the others know,
anything immortal outlives the centuries.

S’ Agapo
S’ Agapo
S’ Agapo

When they're as cold as stone,
You and I in our sepulchre will never die.
Always, we'll be, as our hearts remain burning.

Woe to those who try, oft churning
the excrement of the demonic,
notwithstanding this havoc world
where a lesson by many an occupant
on social etiquette needs learning.

Let others talk! Let them talk!
I know love now! With you,
undying, it shall last for years,
or as Eros, Mors, and the others know,
anything immortal outlives the centuries.

When they're as cold as stone,
You and I in our sepulchre will never die.
