It Runs in the Family

from by Adder's Fork



A song about a wrong kind of love.....Track 6 on the upcoming album.


Whispering through the door
craving for their little secret

Her body shivers in turmoil
defiled, broken, defeated

The buckle scratching at the wall
today the belt will be his tool

The walls are stained with marks and blood
witness of her desecration

Teasing her through the door
impassioned by what soon will be

He told her not to lock the room
the bride must be there for her groom

He should know that it's wrong
He should know it's out of line

No guilty pleasure for him
it runs in the family

Shaking in a fevered haze
the beast is now pounding in

Her eyes are numbly gazing
at her father's ruttish grin

The wails howl through the mansion
there is no need to be discreet

Mother knows it's for the greater good,
so she wipes away the tears

Sparse is what they have become,
with warmth went her fears

The belt is wrapped around his arm
for this day his work is done

No guilty pleasure for him runs in the family

This project
has been created to channel my musical ideas, influenced by a wide array of great bands like Sisters of Mercy, Talk Talk, Joy Division, The Sound and classic gothic rock/metal classics.

What I’m trying to achieve is a satisfying combination of these unforgettable sounds with the more hard-hitting elements of heavy metal, creating my vision of the music that guided me through my life.
