The Kiss of Death was on Her Breath

The kiss of death was on her breath
The kiss of death was on her breath

The kiss of death was on her breath

But passion danced in her eyes

She beguiled them all into the fall

With her honey dripping lies.


One touch, one kiss, was all it took

For each to meet his end

And to the depths of hell each one

Their soul would fast descend.


Her laughter, choked with acid hate,

Would fill the darkened night

As she would hunt for wandering souls

To pull from the flickering light


Those wandering, lost at the edge of truth

No longer steady and sure

With a whisper from her lying tongue

Would easily be lured.


And all too late those poor souls found

Their fate was sealed,

Their life was lost,

And they were buried in the ground.

And they were buried in the ground
And they were buried in the ground
