​The Beast In Velvet

This song is by Crystal Eyes and appears on the album Vengeance Descending (2003).

It's the birthday of the Emperor
The cream of the realm is here,
Kings and queens with sons and daughters

It's truly a most grandiose ball,
Nobles fill the halls
Like sheep, ready for slaughter

Oh, with rising hate I watch them dance,
I watch them prance
Oh, how I loathe these haughty swine
I'll rid the world of this living grime

Peasants are saying, oh not without glee,
There's an aristocrat out on a killing spree
A noble, thirsty for royal blood they say
The Beast in Velvet I'm called by my prey

Though my fee is great indeed
I'd do this for free,
'Cause I enjoy my work immensely

Oh, with rising hate I watch them dance,
I watch them prance
Oh, how I loathe these haughty swine
I'll rid the world of this living grime

Peasants are saying, oh not without glee,
There's an aristocrat out on a killing spree
A noble, thirsty for royal blood they say
The Beast in Velvet I'm called by my prey

With wit and grace I charm these fools
Who think they're out of harm's way
None here's aware of my sins
But then again, who'd suspect a highborn prince?

It's been so easy to lure my prey,
So to my Lord I gratefully pray
As my victim dies by my blade
Shape shifting is a useful trick in my dark trade

Peasants are saying, oh not without glee,
There's an aristocrat out on a killing spree
A noble, thirsty for royal blood they say
The Beast in Velvet I'm called by my prey
