Skies Darken – Coming Down

Jericho has crumbled not a soul is left inside
kings and queens and courtiers have all died
the dust that covers over itself becomes a shrine
but no-one’s there to worship

Angels that sleep by the tomb
enter the world through the womb
sun he has darkened clouds all agree
stars that fall from heaven unclean

Angels that sleep by the grave
enter the world in chains
moon she is shaken clouds all agree
stars that fall from heaven unseen

we have stalked the night of ages seen
we have known the light where heavens reign
we are the true sons the host

we are the mind the universe
we are space time the multiverse
we are the true sons the host

and if you ever take a walk on the wild side
shadows in the night on the wild side

in the night when you fall asleep
dreams become your only escape

we became the light in Adam’s face
Eve became the womb for heaven’s race
we became the eyes of the world

and if you ever take a walk on the wild side
shadows in the night on the wild side
in the night when you fall asleep
dreams become your only escape

jericho has crumled not a soul is left inside
the dust that covers over then hides
the shrine becomes an altar is hidden out of sight
its somewhere out there in the twilight

(ii) THE FOUNTAINS OF SAND

So many men by the waters each one in line to quench his thirst
the tree of life in the distance but no-one can cross to it now
someone said that heaven’s all around me
someone said through sin you go to hell
but we’re already here

(iii) DELIVERED UP FOR TEA

Welcome my good friends come in and rest yourselves
you’re tired and alone as we can see
but all around you feast your eyes
for no one here can die you’re already dead
here’s Hector in the shade so faint and very pale
a shadow of his former glory seen
his Troy has vanished over time
when he came home to die one of the dead

ADONI ADONI

a fish caught in the net the fisher man has no regrets
when he delivers you up for tea

come in and take your fill my net caught you as well
brought you to the depths of my delights
there are no castles in the sky
but those already died one of the dead

ADONI ADONI

a fish caught in the net the fisher man has no regrets
when he delivers you up for tea

here is where you lay each night of every day as one of the dead
one of the dead

each man must die by the waters never seeing more than a sip
the tree of life lost forever cut down by the sword and the fear
someone said that heaven’s all around me
someone said through hell you come to see
we’re already here

here you are come from the light you’re welcome every one
you have seen a thousand life times but remember none but one
you are in the halls of Hades where your judgement shall delay you
as the heaven you seek shall fall

there are no dice or game of chance or sins yet to commit
within those thousand life times the same acts you commit
you are in the halls of Hades where our judgement shall delay thee
in circles forever bound…….. so we’re already dead

(iv) DEATH AND REBIRTH

“HE is mortal man and has all things in his power
yet he suffers the lot of mortal man being subject to destiny
if then being made of life and light you learn you are made from them
you will go back into the life and light.”
