Symphony X – Serpent’s Kiss

This album is darker than Symphony X’s earlier albums… I wholeheartedly approve!


Covenant of pure corruption
sink my teeth deep into you
Solemn oath of sheer destruction
Nightmare, through and through

In that hour – I’ll devour
Hope is swallowed up in Pain
taste the venom – feel the power
coursing through my veins

I’m corruption
I’m destruction, through and through

Trust in me… for I will set you free
with a Serpent’s Kiss
with a Serpent’s Kiss

Be my lights and I won’t stray – make me beg;
make me pray
Tell me when to laugh or cry – when to live
and when to die

Forgotten and betrayed
Rotting and decayed
left to wither – without a voice
left to slither – without a choice


Crucifier – spitting fire
say your little empty prayers
This empire – growing higher
To this spite I swear

Sharp tongue severs – like a razor
swimming in a sea of rage
Vindicators – masqueraders
all the world’s my stage

I devour
I empower – god of pain

Trust in me… for I will set you free
with a Serpent’s Kiss
How could it come to this?
with a Serpent’s Kiss
