Mabool - The Story of the Three Sons of Seven tracks
1. BIRTH OF THE THREE (THE UNIFICATION)
The seventh had seven descendants
The seventh was then divided into three
They were given their first symbols
They bore faces of animals
A Snake, an Eagle & the Lion
The first was known as magic
and he bore an enchanted heart
A Star of David upon his crest
was his eternal mark
The second was strength,
half a moon was he
A triangle he adorned,
a sword for all to see
The third was Lion wisdom
a mind unmatched
Represented by the cross
the white was his essence
A crystal his defense
The three were one, divided at rebirth
Forbidden to unite,
for fear of their strength
The divine order was ignored
the three thrn became one
Their punishment was swift
they were denied and then cast down
A thousand incarnations passed
the time was now at hand
A prophecy fulfilled so;
he may save this sinful land
As Jobe bore the sins of all men
who walk the land
They must bear the cross
as was their comands
The second unification of the angel Seven
Three human souls, merged,
as in heaven
The lion's roar was heard by all
The magic and the force have heard
the will to prophesize was theirs
The cross shook the hammering of nails
Omen in the darkened skies above
Thunder, lightning and rain did flow
As the united angel rose
Ice steamed and fire rose
And the three were born...
The seventh had seven descendants
The seventh was then divided into three
2. OCEAN LAND (THE REVELATION)
"Before eyes that are blind no more
A sight unseen that tears the soul
All we ever loved and known
Into mass graves is what we're shown"
"We see an ocean once was land"
& So they come to understand
This place where man used to be born
Will be man's water throne
"All that was magical, beautiful,
will be gone"
These measures call for divine intervention
"All the achievements of man,
one will stand all alone"
One the survives the final selection
"The sand in the hourglass,
moves so fast, slow the sand
And nothing that mankind has strived for
will be al in ocean land"
The rain will fall then
Filling the dried land
"Here are we servants three,
flesh and blood
Poor and weak,
hear thou speak of the flood"
It must be a sign
A massage from God's hand
3. THE KISS OF BABYLON (THE SINS)
Twisted ways blackened nights
Sin upon Sin, gone is the light
Doom shall befall them all
A Downward spiral they shall fall
The Three, all this they see
As they try to pass god's decree
Worshiping the gods
that demand lives and sacrifice
None but the blood of infants will suffice
Fallen sparrows fall as one into a grave
They are the souls of living men
that could not be saved.
"Walking the land we see
The sins of flesh and spirit flow
Bodies entwined a serpent's
lethal kiss of venom is bestowed
Our lord watches them fall -
He stands above you all"
"Son slaying father
A Cain's mark upon us all
Babylon's rising, cast from heaven
We see the angels fall
When will the heavens be alight
The seasons will re-unite"
"Ahavat hadasa al levavi nikshera
Ve'ani betoch gola paamay tzolelim;
Lu yesh reshut li a'ale ethabera
Toch she'arey zion asher hem nehelalim;"
"My heart is bound with love to the Holy Land,
But my feet are sinking in the depths of exile
When will he give me leave to go up and make my home
Within the extolled gates of Jerusalem?"
"A'salk ya chur aganani
Lama Lama Ad Betney
Ve'ana ahrach raim zmani
Takrim liman hu haii"
"I beseech you, King of Kings
Why, Why do you torture me?
In my faith lies eternally
Have mercy upon your forsaken"
5. HALO DIES (THE WRATH OF GOD)
"Vaishachet ha'aretz lifney habore, vetimla ha'aretz chamas"
"The land was corrupt before God,
and the land was filled with violence"
"Father thou art in heaven
Thy kingdom cried hallow lives
The sacred halo dies
You defied and turned your back
Upon our lord of wrath
All faith you lack
You walk (upon) this beaten path"
All man shall fall as Abel fell to Cain
By fire, by storm, by hail & by rain
The Sacred triad, the three that are one
Shall serve the word, thy will shall be done
Hell hath no fury as a God scorned
Unleash his wrath
he will let death be adorned
"I will cleanse the world with fire
Scorched earth forevermore
Purple tongues that burn,
shall climb higher
Seas of flame will crush ashore
Shed the blood of mortal man
The pains of birth are felt again
Reduce to none, thou art unborn
The end of man, human dethroned
All light is gone..."
The rage of lord is ever true
You have been led by the eternal deceiver
He is the life taker, and pain giver
(Who) dwells into the depths of darkened fever
There, as always, he lies, waiting - silent forever at the door
The wrath of God that has befell you
The servant of God - Job, the faithful believer
He turned into a shadow, all fear and shiver
Eve he drove astray and Adam to believe her
The serpent coils inside its lair
As if picking at an open sore
Forever man's shins shall
survive his earthly demise
Wallow in hateful ways & his life of lies
Eternal redemption they do not want nor seek
Short are their days & feeble
Naught but pleasure they adore...
The lord seek to redemanded sorrow and greed
So he's children may enter ways of fear
"Vayar Habore ki raba ra'at ha'adam baaretz vekol yetzer
Machshavot libo rak ra kol hayom,
Vayenachem habore ki asa et ha'adam baaretz,
Veyt'atzev el libo"
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the land,
and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it repented the lord that he had made man on the land,
and it grieved him at his heart."
6. A CALL TO AWAKE (THE QUEST)
"On to the lands we must go to warn all"
Said the Snake, to the Eagle and the Lion
"Beg them to repent so they might be saved
From the fury and the anger that shall claim them"
And so they set sail across the land and seas alike
In a quest to avoid the settings of the sun
"God's rage is true
He urges you
"Thou has stolen, betrayed
and worshiped pagan gods
Thou must awake, thy lost faith to be saved"
And so spoke the prophets,
as the mob has gathered round
(They) said their empire would soon crumble
and fall down
"Thou art our brothers, hear our call this day
We come not to see your end,
but to revive we pray"
"God's rage is true
He urges you
"Where did these three come from"
asked crowd anxiously
Furious and confused at the same time,
"Surely these people are lying or jesting.
Either way they are here to cause harm."
"You just be on your way", said the mob as a
warning, "or else (all) hell will break loose!"
"It's all a matter of choice..." said the Eagle,
though they really didn't
have much to choose...(From).
7. BUILDING THE ARK
Comque vidisset Deus terran esse corruptam omnis
quippe caro corruperat viam suam super terram
Fac tibi arcam de lignis levigatis mansiunculas
in arca facies et bitumine linies intrinsecus et extrinsecus
...corrupta est autem terra coram Deo...
Et ex cunctis animantibus universe carnis bina indu-
ces in arcam ut vivant tecum...
"Thy servants are we.
our lord who sits up high,
Thy rod and thy staff,
shall comfort and guide our hands"
And God looks upon the earth, and, behold, it was
corrupt for all flesh
had corrupted his way upon the earth.
"Make Thee an ark of gopher wood;
rooms shall thou make in the ark,
and shall pitch it within and without with
...The earth was corrupt before God.
"Of every living thing of all flesh,
two of even sort shall thou bring
into the ark
to keep them alive
8. NORRA EL NORRA (ENTERING THE ARK)
Nora El Nora, ne'ezar begvura shuvi elay malki
Dodi refa, nafshi nichsefa, lebeitach malchi
Nora El Nora, ne'ezar begvura
Nora Ashira, Lach akabira, shir mahalali
Lecha etna menat chevly vegoraly
Bekol zman azor el nora, geza avraham, netzer tifa'ara,
Ata el hai noten torah
Nora El Nora, the lord of courage
Return me my lord, mend my wounds,
my soul is yearning, and in valor we wait.
Nora i sing thee, a hymn of praise,
to you I give my life and faith
Through all time, mighty Nora,
deliver us progeny of Abraham,
Offspring of greatness,
you are the living God,
giver of Torah
9. THE CALM BEFORE THE FLOOD
10. MABOOL (THE FLOOD)
"...Hineni mavi et hamabool maimarubot hasham al ha'aretz,
Leshachet kol basar asher bo ruach chaim mitachat hashamaim,
Kol asher ba'aretz yigva...
Vemachiti et kol hayekum asher asiti me'al pney ha'adama"
And, behold, I, do bring a flood of waters upon
the land to destroy all flesh,
wherein is the breathe of life,
from under heaven, and every thing that is in the
Land shall die...and I shall wipe away
the world I created upon the land.
May the lord eternal save his troubled child
As he passes through rain and storm
Behind the walls of this hallowed ark of wood
Our prophets found a revelation, which they understood
Onto the lands of fearful heaven comes a flood erasing all
Landing as if a ruthless bird of prey to crush all human souls
The lightning colors of the sky with flames of light
Hell shines above us and the fires bright
Erasing the works of the common man, all we hold dear is set alight
"Bayom haze nivkeu kol ma'ayanot tehom raba
ve'arubot hashamaim niftechu
vemey hamabool hayu al ha'aretz"
...In the seventh day of the month, the same day were all the fountains
of the great deep broken up and the windows of heaven had opened...
...And the waters of the flood, were upon the land...
Shattered glass reflects this shattered world, barren in the landscape here
Thunder roars as a lion caged, heat that comes like waves of fear
Oceans rise and rage as we watch the world powers fall
redeeming their sinful ways with their souls
May the truth fill their hearts, let them see the light, when they embrace their gods
"Vehine charvu pney ha'adama...
Shofech dam ha'adam, ba'adam damo yishapech"
...and the face of the land was dead...
Whose shaded man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed.
Seas cover the works of timeless art
That once brought joy to human hearts
In halls of infamy this day shall live
Like burning of Rome and betrayal of Eve
Like the fire raised at the witches' stakes
Return all earthly possessions
As ashes you return to earth, child of God to face the divine lord who sits upon the throne - eyes sad
Go in peace and find thy faith
Evolve thy self and lose all hate
So a heaven you may create
In this world of sorrowful ways
None shall live to see the light of day
Some may survive to tell this tale
If their belief shall conquer this gale
Damnations the punishment bestowed
El Norra Alila the vengeful God
11. THE STORM STILL RAGES INSIDE
The lightning flashes tension's high
Bringing light to darkened skies
Like Jonah in the belly of the beast
Inside the ark the sound desist
And so the ark swept
upon the rising water...
Forty days and forty nights
There came a mighty flood upon the land
Where once were green pastures
teeming with life
Now were oceans deeper than any abyss
"Out of depths of sorrow I cry
Before thee I lie
If this world shall inherit the mild
Hear your orphaned child..."
Lord pray to save thy child
The storm still rages inside
Lord guide them
Unto dry land, Amen.
12. RAINBOW (THE RESURRECTION)
