Lift up your spirits!

Too much pain and suffering, crying
Too many funerals, we know the earth is dying
Gatherers, celebrants, in a state of merriment
This sickness - cleanse us with fire and music

This tribal antidote my choice
Come to the great assembly, revelry, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

Not a concert, show or entertainment
A temple, a ritual, a festival of dissent
Kindred spirits exchange and listen
We share in common different value system

This tribal antidote my choice
Come to the great assembly, revelry, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

This tribal antidote my choice
Come to the great assembly, revelry, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

Church of liberty, you'll never take this from me
Barter, no money, I don't suffer from spiritual poverty
Economic slavery, come back with bravery
Here is a sanctuary we'll get away from all this

This tribal antidote my choice
Come to the great assembly, revelry, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

This tribal antidote my choice
Come to the great assembly, revelry, rejoice, rejoice, rejoice

I harbour thoughts of killing you
pour petrol on you and then on me
but then i walk down the stairs
and killing joke waits for me there
then we play - go psycho

With sticks and stones and bones beneath our homes we face ourselves
hosannas rising from the basements of hell

Anger that poisons my heart
eating your liver and heart
like voodoo just play until you bleed
lost in the noise i am free
i'm not a murderer yet
i'm not a murderer yet

With sticks and stones and bones beneath our homes we face ourselves
hosannas rising from the basements of hell

i'm not a murderer yet
i'm not a murderer yet
i'm not a murderer yet
i'm not a murderer yet

. . .


Hearts of darkness and hate
O evil, oblivion your fate
O betrayer i come a war without end
My enemy's enemy is my friend
Mankind becomes the whore
Temples are empty - no law
False religions shall rise
Flags of scarlet shall fly
O destroyer of world
Babylon

. . .


We come into this life in blood and tears
We leave this life in blood and tears
Paranoia deepest darkest fears
How beautiful the life - Yes

The highs and lows of every day
Laughter and screams won't go away
But the total experience of it all
Blows me away
Implosion

Mother lover child of wife
Taken from us in this life
My griefs is yours and yours is mine
But o the gift of life is o so fine - Yes

The highs and lows of every day
Laughter and screams won't go away
But the total experience of it all
Blows me away
Blows me away
Blows me away
Implosion

Truth begins to dawn, a smile across my face
Realization in a total state of grace
The mines of solomon we left behind,
We left behind the evils of the west
Rites of light and ceremonies bright
Playing this great game of life and death - Yes

The highs and lows of every day
Laughter and screams won't go away
But the total experience of it all
Blows me away
Blows me away
Blows me away

Initiate wakey - wakey!

Accelerated eco - meltdown, no-one gives a damn
Keep everyone in debt while the big banks own their land
Orwellian, Machiavellian, Hegelian dialectic
World management has come, and it's to be expected

You cannot tell the people (But some of us have guessed it)
Every day is a blessing, i feel the best yet
Majestic yes i feel fantastic

War of the worlds again, a necessary lie
Psychological operations show they were right
Religious institutions and the general status quo
Economy and infrastructure - all of it will go

You cannot tell the people (But some of us have guessed it)
Every day is a blessing, i feel the best yet
Majestic yes i feel fantastic

Black triangles flashing red white and blue
Aliens (or disinformation) yes it is true
Contacts been established with critters from the stars
The surface of the earth will soon resemble mars

You cannot tell the people (But some of us have guessed it)
Every day is a blessing, i feel the best yet
Majestic yes i feel fantastic

Just like magick
Yes i feel fantastic

FIGHT BY DAY, FUCK BY NIGHT PREPARE TO DIE AT ANYTIME ENEMY SMASH ME DOWN I STILL COME BACK FOR MORE EACH ROUND

SALVATION'S NOT JUST A PILL TO ESCAPE BUT YOUR SKILL FIGHT ON FIGHT ON UNTIL DEATH INTERVENES AGAINST ALL ODDS OVERCOME ALL LOGIC, REASON WALKING WITH GODS, FEELING HIGH, 'COS I'VE ENTERED EDEN

TRIBAL MENTALITY, OUR REALITY NOT HELD BACK BY HYPOCRITES MORALITY DON'T UNDERESTIMATE OUR RESOLVE EACH AND EVERY DOG HAS HIS DAY

OUTNUMBERED WE ARE FEW TASTED BLOOD NOW COME FOR YOU YOU THE HOUR, YOU THE PLACE, YOU OUR DESTINY WE EMBRACE

. . .


THE REBELLIOUS SPIRIT IN YOU AND ME THE LIGHTBRINGER

WHICH INTELLIGENCE GAVE GEOMETRY, BINARY SYSTEM COMPLEX CYCLES OF ASTRONOMY? NUMBER, PROPORTION, MEASUREMENT, LIGHT, ANGLE, MATHEMATICS ALL APPEARED OVERNIGHT!

DARWIN'S EVOLVED CHIMPANZEE - LIES DESIGNED AND BUILT THE PYRAMIDS HONESTLY - LIES YOU'RE ASKING ME TO WAGER MY SOUL ON THAT WHICH I DOUBT THE MOST THAT THE VIRGIN MARY WAS IMPREGNATED BY THE GHOST MORE LIES

THE REBELIOUS SPIRIT IN YOU AND ME THE LIGHTBRINGER

WHO COULD CUT WITH LASER PRECISION MAKE PERFECT INCISION INTO THE HARDEST ROCK? WHO COULD LIFT ONE BLOCK OF STONE THAT WEIGHTS FOUR JUMBO JETS? YES YOUR INTUITION WILL TELL YOU BEST

LIBERATOR O ENLIGHTENER - COME

THE REBELLIOUS SPIRIT IN YOU AND ME THE LIGHTBRINGER

WHO IS THE SYMBOL OF THE SERPENT SNAKE? WHO GAVE US KNOWLEDGE OF MEDICINE? WHO KNEW PRECISELY THE EARTH DIAMETER? WHO MODIFIED OUR BESTIAL CHARACTER?

CIVILIZER INITIATOR LIBERATOR O ENLIGHTENER - COME

. . .


See the sleeping figures holding up the clock in Prague's old town square, blank faces of rock the wander and they follow guides - as they call then the clock starts chiming it is my wake up call

A rich man's war in poor man's blood
Silent their cries, the lost and loved
Led to the slaughter, led by false hope
Follow behind the judas goat

Parasitic humans losing all (i feel) all that we believed was true all i thought was real cheated then set up by those we trusted most bitter were the drinks of party on the host.

A rich man's war in poor man's blood
Silent their cries, the lost and loved
Led to the slaughter, led by false hope
Follow behind the judas goat
Follow behind the judas goat

. . .


LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE HEARTS OF MY PEOPLE LET ME TELL YOU OF THE MEANING OF OUR TRIBE A DREAM UNSPOKEN, A PROMISED KEPT THE SECRET COMES ALIVE

FOR ALL THE YEARS I'VE WATCHED YOUR BACK AND YOU'VE WATCHED MINE WE ALWAYS KNEW THE CLOUDS WOULD PART AND A GOLDEN DAWN WILL SHINE

AND WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF ALONT THE UNTRODDEN PATH REMEMBER ME WITH A SMILE, A DRINK, A GESTURE OR A LAUGH GRATITUDE

YOU LOOK AT ME BUT I'VE BEEN LOOKING AT YOU WE ONLY WERE A MIRROR TO SHOW WHAT YOU COULD DO O INNOVATOR, O ENLIGHTENED SCOLAR PLAY AND WRITE REWRITE THE OLD BOOKS, RENNAISANCE PERFORM NEW RITES OF LIGHT

THE WISE WILL REDEFINE PARADISE THE FARMER AND THE VISIONARY, A VILLAGE - SIMPLE LIVES ADAPTING TO STRANGE SEASONS IN CERTAIN REMOTE REGIONS WHERE NO-ONE HAS EXEMPTION FROM TOTAL REDEMPTION

AND WHEN YOU FIND YOURSELF ALONT THE UNTRODDEN PATH REMEMBER ME WITH A SMILE, A DRINK, A GESTURE OR A LAUGH AND A TOAST FOR THE MAN WHO LOVES EVERY HOUR OF EVERY DAY AND A FEAST FOR THE FRIENDS AND FACES MET ALONG THE WAY GRATITUDE
