THE MISSION : SERPENT’S KISS [1987]

Συνεχίζουμε το μουσικό μας αφιέρωμα στα ερπετά με ένα από τα πρώτα τραγούδια των Βρετανών goth rockers Mission.
We continue our musical tribute to reptiles with one of the first songs by British goth rockers
Mission.

Foreign tongues in familiar places
Surrender the thrills to the very core
Forever young and blessed with nameless graces
A love that kills and promises more
Ash on the carpet and dust on the mirror
Chasing shadows and the dreaming comes clearer
Gasping for color, this perfect heart
Screaming howl and the children cry
Serpents kiss for the words you pray
Whiskey and the devil and the witching hour
A serpents kiss on that untouched flower
Searching for a haven, it’s no favor, the fingers that shine
Heart beats quicker as the veils start to fall
I’ll be craving, the pleasure’s all mine
Candles flicker and the devils dance on the wall
Stroking the naked and the silence gets colder
Stuck on the ceiling and the kissing gets bolder
Biting my nails for fear of revenge
A serpents kiss and the children cry
A serpents kiss for the words you pray
A serpents kiss and the witching hour
A serpents kiss on that untouched flower
Ash on the carpet and dust on the mirror
Chasing shadows and the dreaming comes clearer
Some kind of visitor and the neon street
A serpents kiss and the children cry
A serpents kiss for the words you pray
A serpents kiss and the witching hour
A serpents kiss on that untouched flower

    I seem to remember this band, but obviously not well.
    A bit of Bowie in the music?

      Correct. Bowie is considered as one of the main influences to the “goth” idiom!
