lyrics

I. Jerusalem

Once she roamed on windless seas
The same horizon made to by seen
By her for all eternity
Once she dreamt out in the cold
How beautiful it’d be getting old
With her own fragility
She, then a creature of the night
Did hide from the sun of light
Of act and nonconformity
She imagined how tastes joy
While herself she was God’s toy
Keeping her own virginity

She, a heart of bleeding scars
And the firmament of stars
Of which she could reach none
A thousand of them in her sight
Her was the last, the death of night
When others perished and were gone

II. Athens

A messenger did appear to her
Taking her there
Where Nietzsche defeated Kierkegaard
And Crowley triumphed over Jesus
Into a rapturous state of mind
In which the pure will taught us

And there, the Prophet sang to her:

“All the fools thou shall despise
And above them all thou shall arise
‘Bove them who a great sorrow bear
For whom reality’s a dreadful ’mare

They’re They who breed pestilence
And mourn all their acts: Know hence
As sorrow’s elected by innocence
The key of joy is disobedience”

III. Rome

Cordelia!

As you now know thy most true name
Let me now teach you of glory and fame
There is no law, there is no bound
So now roam free my beloved hellhound!

IV. Babylon

If pity and compassion visit thy heart
Then you die and with you all the true art
Of joy and rapture and thousands and more
There is a veil and that veil is black
On all chaste women ye shall turn your back
Ye, who truly know the virgin and the whore

“Remember all ye that existence is pure joy; that all the sorrows are but as shadows; they pass & are done; but there is that which remains.”
– Liber Al vel Legis
