APHRODITE'S CHILD lyrics - 666

The Seventh Seal

Original and similar lyrics
And when the Lamb opened the next two seals We saw the souls We saw the martyrs We heard them crying We heard them shouting They were dressed in white They'd been told to wait The sun was black The moon was red The stars were falling The earth was trembling And then a crowd Impossible to number Carrying flowers Shouted amid the hotless sun The lightless moon The windless earth The colourless sky How much longer will we suffer from hunger? How much longer will we suffer from thirst? And when the Lamb opened the seventh seal Silence covered the sky

I Heard The Bells

DIANA ROSS "Making Spirits Bright"
(Henrey Wadsworth) I heard the bells on Christmas Day Their old familiar carols play And wild and sweet the words repeat Of peace on earth, good will to men I thought how, as the day had come The belfries of all Christendom Had rolled along the unbroken song Of peace on earth, good will to men Then pealed the bells more loud and deep God is not dead nor doth He sleep The wrong shall fail, the right prevail With peace on earth, good will to men I heard a voice within me say Do not despair this holy day On christmas morn new hope is born For peace on earth, good will to men

Standing In The Breach

JACKSON BROWNE "Standing In The Breach"
And though the earth may tremble and our foundations crack We will all assemble and we will build them back And rush to save the lives remaining still within our reach And try to put our world together standing in the breach So many live in poverty while others live as kings Though some may find peace In the acceptance of all that living brings I will never understand however they've prepared How one life may be struck down and another life be spared And though the earth may tremble and cast our works aside And though our efforts resemble the fluctuating tide We rise and fall with the trust and belief That love redeems us each And bend our backs and hearts together standing in the breach You don't know why it's such a far cry From the world this world could be You don't know why but you still try For the world you wish to see You don't know how it will happen now After all that's come undone But you know the change the world needs now Is there, in everyone The unpaid debts of history The open wounds of time The laws of human nature always tugging from behind I want to think that the earth can heal And that people might still learn How to meet this world's true challenges And that the course we're on could turn And though the earth may tremble and the oceans pitch and rise We will all assemble and we will lift our eyes To the tasks that we know lie before us And the power our prayers beseech And cast our souls into the heavens, standing in the breach You don't know why it's such a far cry From the world this world could be You don't know why but you still try For the world you wish to see You don't know how it's going to happen now After all that's come undone And you know the world you're waiting for may not come No it may not come But you know the change the world needs now Is there, in everyone

The Mass Of The Earth

THE AGONIST "Prisoners"
I just wrote to tell you this; I did just my very best. I went far but got stuck there. I picked up the pieces, I was your vigilant soldier but the mass of the earth just weighed too heavily on me. How can truth be opinion? How can fact be right and wrong? The familiar turned strange, good and evil unhinged. My utilitarian comfort unsettled. Consequentialist moral reasons categorically examined. Self-knowledge is a loss of innocence! I heard your call to arms, set off the doomsday alarm, but never heard back. So, I set out alone. I don’t believe all I’ve been shown. A quest for truth and fact. I passed a desert town. Uninhabitable pastures of ash brown. Abandoned structures littered like an Aerstan scene. But then desperate people appeared. They had lived in constant drought for ten years ever since pollution got the best of them – wiped them clean. So, I thought "I’ll take their curse away! Let them flourish, I’ll take the pain." I lifted their drought and went on my way. So I’m asking you, help me carry? I’m Atlas, Jesus and Hades. Won’t someone please take this weight off of me? The destination is obsolete. The journey is bitter-sweet. Logic and consistency do not mix with morality. Justify your atrocities, the trump card never fails. Remove the greed and the ego, and the consciences prevails. No longer empty-handed, I stopped at the coast to rest but found a flood of people drowning in a sea of hatred. They begged and pleaded "End this war! Have acceptance and peace restored!" So, I drank up all their poison oaths. So I’m asking you help me carry? I’m Atlas, Jesus and Hades. Won’t someone please take this weight off of me? The destination is obsolete. There’s nothing left but wrong with me. Global systems all degrading. I’ll take the problems so the World can breathe. And I have nowhere to take thewm so, forever they’ll accompany me. The future is much longer than the past. I picked up wrongs along the way, removed them from the mass. But I still had to jettison things to outrun gravity and not wanting to further pollute. I just left behind parts of me. I’m collecting your tradition, your religion, your depression. I’m trading in your affection to put us all to sleep. So here I lay, bent shoulders, broken ribs. I sink into the earth and all I can hope is to take this baggage to the grave – one more step I cannot take – by the time you read this I’ll have passed away.

Advent:

DEAD CAN DANCE "Spleen And Ideal"
In times of great vexation when one must choose between what's right and wrong freedom, so they say, amounts to but the choices you have made! Through all the arbitrary rationale concerning liberty, freedom, I must say, exists within unconditioned minds! Reason... has come of age. How can you be satisfied with things the way they are when all that surrounds us now and so much more remains inside the keeper's dark embrace? The insatiable thirst for power has made idols out of mortals gods into clay soldiers into heros children into slaves! All damned desires their hopes betrayed. Who will suffer the laws, that State can decide your child's education, unless you pay the price? Refrain: Who will suffer their laws? Who will suffer their minds? Who will suffer their words? Who will suffer their designs?

Indoctrination (A Design For Living)

DEAD CAN DANCE "Spleen And Ideal"
In times of great vexation When one must choose between what's right and wrong Freedom, so they say, Amounts to the choices you have made Through all the arbitrary rationale concerning liberty Freedom, I must say, Exists within unconditioned minds Reason has come of age How can you be satisfied with things the way they are When all that surrounds us now and so much more Remains inside the keeper's dark embrace? The insatiable thirst for power has made Idols out of mortals, gods into clay Soldiers into heros, children into slaves All damned Desires Their hopes betrayed Who will suffer the laws That State can decide your child's education Unless you pay the price? Refrain (x2) Who will suffer their laws? Who will suffer their minds? Who will suffer their words? Who will suffer their designs?
