Lyrics


1. IL GIARDINO DI MONTE OLIVETO MAGGIORE

Washing the incense
And blood from my eyes
The absurdities from my mind
Bells pealing, aspersions

I fell asleep thinking of angels
My name shall be reviled
Unto the end of the world
To the last generations

Of the songs of women
Abdiel, Gabriel
Pre-figure and merge
Uriel, Abaddon

Heralding a haven of hope
And Helen was screaming
Amidst chaos and candles
Blinded by blood

We behold the sophia
The Magus, he kneels
To kiss the abbots ring
A scream of silence pours forth

From her red lips
Her arms outstretched
Into a crucifix
With aspect of a woman and man

Shedding hair and gown
Adoring the perfect Sophia
Prostrate before the icon twisted
Sabellicus worships the deviant

Spurious seraph
Sophistry, treachery
Obscene architect of dark artifice
Shivering and dancing in the breeze

The mirrors catch the sun...




2. ZULEIKA

Murder, engineer death and evil
Mentor/tormentor
Spiritual rapist
Divine predator

Beguiling Zulieka
I must take her in hand
The leptosome nymphet
Demands discipline

Capricious and lissome
Macromastic and dark
The taste of her cunt
Almost makes me feel pure

Be unto me, resplendent sin
Appease this disease
Insatiable Satan
Olam ha Nekudoth

Insatiable master, Satan
Blood of Christ
Necronomicon
Blood of Christ

Many realities unfold
Betwixt a rich fruit of locusts
Shade and substance twists
I could almost believe in Allah

For your sake, Zulieka
"Be unto me, Devil
Be unto me..."
