lyrics

Gently kindle the flame of enlightenment, spark it as
Winds of wisdom caress, groom it into godly strength
so one day it may set ablaze the world in kind warmth.

Expand the mind, take in the whole of the world.
a cascade of sensations
utterly overwhelmed by strangely gentle hands.

I Transcend
Leave this petty existence,
Expand the mind
Purify of weakness, rise and render obsolete
morality
and mortality
To renounce
what's all too human (to be) beyond a god

All I know all this power won't grant me
what my soul most craves.
I plunge into darkest despair,
As they mock my name

defiant ignorants
who bathe in what I miss.
Why can't all this might bestow me bliss?

The more I am buried in these beloved books of mine,
The more I grasp about nature and the arts humane,
The more I doubt, I riddle, more I know, more I control.
But of all the words, these still ring the truest by far:

“Habe nun, ach!“
[er sprach]
„Philosophie Juristerei
und Medizin
Und leider auch
Theologie
Durchaus studiert,
mit heissem bemüh'n

Da steh' ich nun, ich armer Tor und bin so klug als wie zuvor”

Da stand ich dann, ich armer Tor und war so klug wie je

zuvor

Scio enim
quia non habeo quod



the ultimate curse,
to cage one's mind

harrowed the grandest
creators of all

(yet) they overcame,
let thoughts sever

though no subject is uncursed

perspective bears the key
that awakens the dreaming books inside


Un enfer est
crée pour
l’orgueil et la puissance,
pour tous mes
aspects d’ivoire
un concerts
d’enfers
s’allume
