Dante's Inferno
Divina Commedia/Inferno/Canto III:
"Per mi si va ne la citta dolente,
Per me si va ne l'etterno dolore,
Per me si va tra la perduta gente."
Threatening and cold
A poem for the underworld
Where shadows walk
Beyond redemption

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno

Minos wraps his serpent
Tail around himself
To mark a sinner's level
His prison cell.
The famous poet Dante
Is passing through the gates
The only living being
In this accursed place.

Threatening and cold
A poem for the underworld
Where shadows walk
Beyond redemption

Dante's Inferno
Dante's Inferno

The greedy pay the price,
Their wealth is cursed
The wrathful fight each other,
Covered with slimy mud
The flames are burning heretics,
And for the violent ones,
Red blood is boiling.
As thieves will turn to vipers
And vipers will turn to thieves

Ninth, the lower plain.
Who could ever guess?
It is a frozen lake!
An angel in his past, a fallen one,
Right on the spot he crashed,
For aeons is lying down...
 
 
3rd Testament (Codex Omega)
A human hand
Has written all books
A human mind
Has thought of the proof

To rule the earth
He had to ascend
To rule his peers
Their will he had to bend

Bibles are portraying a world in black and white
We invented the devil
So the devil is man

If Satan was the father and Antichrist the son
Lilith was the mother and Lucifer the spirit of light

Reversed is the 3rd Testament

A phantom god guarding your salvation
He lives in books
Your imagination an abstract thought
Lord of all creation
An absent king
The final revelation

If Satan was the father and Antichrist the son
Lilith was the mother and Lucifer the spirit of light

Codex Omega
 
 
Portrait of a Headless Man
(What could be more simple and more complex, more obvious and more profound than a portrait?
Charles Baudelaire)
In a world controlled by fire...
In a world controlled by fire,
Psychotic preachers thrive.

They use the waves to bind us,
They use the screens to blind us.
I joined headless forces
They told us what to do.
We worked, we fought, we bled.

A cogwheel in the system,
A ghost in the machine.
In my private thoughts,
Only pain felt real.

Cry!
I am crying, in the portrait
Of a headless man.
Laugh!
I am laughing, in the portrait
Of a headless man

I am a man with strong regrets.
I followed great deceivers
Believe in headless leaders.
They played their game, true sons of Cain
But I was a hopeless dreamer,
With my head deep in the clouds.

More joined the fiery leaders,
And blood was shed in rivers.
Those without a mind had to pick our side,
With the use of fearsome methods.
One more empty frame ready for display,
On a gallery of headless portraits.

Cry!
I am crying, in the portrait
Of a headless man.
Laugh!
I am laughing, in the portrait
Of a headless man
 
 
Martyr
(In memoriam of Hypatia, a great mathematician, philosopher and astronomer, murdered at 415 A.D. by order of Cyril the Bishop of Alexandria. Cyril later was declared a saint by the church...)
Your books, your friends, your life is in mortal danger.
The things are tense and knowledge is offense.
In this nation vast deception reigns.
Church and politics threaten your survival.

A strife has grown between faith and wisdom.
You chose to stand for the exalted ego.
Your creation, a creation maimed.
Blame the vultures for their vile way.

The mob: "Run Devil's seed! You will face the wrath of God.
Run Devil's seed! You will face the wrath of God
Run Devil's seed!"

You will face the wrath of God.
The highest price you'll pay.
You will face the wrath of God.
The highest price you'll pay.

Martyr
Unyielding force of thought and spirit.
Martyr
Unyielding force of thought and spirit

Your essence remained.
Your work, your life, your books.

Unyielding force of thought and spirit, shine!
 
 
Enemy of Truth
The silent borderland
Where words become undone
Brainmade treachery
A different truth to see

To keep a secret
Misinformation is the key
21st century
New ways of slavery

So many prying eyes
Communication spies

Ghosts are fighting for the cause
With poisoned words
Half-truths, false proofs
The trap is set to snare the wolf

The enemy of truth

Fight the enemy of truth (x2)

Sense destroyer (x4)

Mental surgery
Social lobotomy
Confusion, delusion
We all connect and share
The perfect way for lies to spread

Fight the enemy of truth (x2)
 
 
Dark Art
(Life begins and ends with a breath. The art of sound is an art in darkness, unseen, yet real as the wind.)
Blessed be the night, the architect of all creation.
Her wings are wide and strong and black.
She is bleeding light. Stars form a congregation
She is the force, our soul and fire.

Blind lead the blind.
Another day
The sun is lost.
Nocturnal cities
Secrets lie buried in the sand.

To craft the dark art we used our soul.
Emotions bleed, but we stay strong.

Disciples of the Dark Art.

To craft the dark art, we used our soul.
Emotions bleed, but we stay strong
Darkness binds the world!

Save me!
Another day
The sun is lost
Save me, strong wind.
Strong and bitter and cold and old
 
 
Our Church, Below the Sea
(Ph'nglui mglw'naph Cthlulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn)
Gothic walls below the sea.
Corals rising high.
A building is standing tall,
Fearful, yet majestic.

Surface dwellers never come,
Yet it haunts their dreams.
Tales about Atlantis come to mind.

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting,
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below...

Hail! Cthulhu lives.
He escaped the abyss.
Hail! Cthulhu dreams
Of his house in the deep
Hail! Cthulhu lives.
He escaped the abyss.

Placed upon the ocean's floor,
On the abyssal zone.
Sunlight cannot get down here
And freezing currents flow.
Rusting chandeliers
Are hanging from above.
Chthonian priests
Are praying to elder gods.

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting,
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below the sea.

Hail! Cthulhu lives.
He escaped the abyss.
Hail! Cthulhu dreams
Of his house in the deep.

When the waters kiss
The mouth of madness
And the sea is chanting,
Horrid fish come as guardians
For our church
Our church, below the sea.
 
 
Faceless Queen
(The face of Tiamat, like the ocean's surface, is but a reflection of an ever-changing sky.)
Always so distant.
Hiding from the sun.
He is looking around her,
To find where she is not.

The archway of Heaven,
The saints of the Earth,
Old parts from her broken ribs.
Now she is enthroned
On the spaceless void.
She is breathing fire as a dragon
And we all feel the heat.
Her touch is soft as the wind.

Faceless Queen
A mask your only skin
Faceless queen
Faceless queen,
Can you remove,
Your mask of skin?

She is enigma,
A canvas without frame.
Worshiped as Goddess
By the toys she made from clay.
Behold the Faceless Queen!
Behold the Faceless Queen!

Her realm extends to the endless sea
And she rules from the spaceless void.
She is breathing fire as a dragon
And we all feel the heat.
Her touch is soft as the wind.

Faceless Queen
A mask your only skin
Faceless queen
Faceless queen,
Can you remove,
Your mask of skin?

The serpent with the golden crown,
Faceless staring at the sun.
The serpent sits upon its throne,
Faceless staring at the sun.

Always so distant.
Hiding from the sun.
He is looking around her,
To find where she is not.

Behold the Faceless Queen!
Behold the Faceless Queen!
 
 
The Gospels of Fear
(What you keep feeding with strong emotions and thoughts, is growing inside your mind, until finally it starts feeding by itself...)
Your future life can be at stake.
From good to worse.
Make no mistake!
One moment here, the next one gone.
The seed of terror soon will grow.

We learn to live with fear each day.
It has to be another way.
As moments fly, the things we want will be obtained,
Or maybe not.

ACTH, epinephrine,
Are flowing through the bloodstream.
The fear of failure
The fear of death
The fear of loss
The Gospels of Fear
Embrace fear

A grim companion is always there.
His vicious thoughts are hard to bear.
In every mind, in every soul he gains control.

He offers help but in exchange you have to step inside the cage.
Dare not to question the things you'll see,
All kind of horrors you will perceive.

Toxic thoughts come to thee,
Vicious mouths eating thee.

The Gospels of Fear

Embrace your fear.
 
 
Trinity
Brahma/Vishnu/Shiva – Creator/Preserver/Destroyer.
Father/Son/Holy Ghost – Mind/Body/Spirit.
Past-Present-Future.

I am the abyss,
I am the way,
The secret door to a hidden cave.
A different place to the garden of fools.
You can enter here, if your steps will lead you to...

Thoughts are sailing fast, like ships into a storm.
Dreams are fading; they are heading to a point of no return.

You can call me Trinity, as three divide the whole.
One third of me, is what you see.
A mirror is my astral door.

Trinity
Remember what you always have been.
Trinity
The one that is three.
Trinity
The one possessed by three.
