about

In the minds of the Christian Right, any other worship other than that of the Christian Judeo God is considered of Satan or of the devil. This song is for those who worship art, music, nature. Those ideas are deep, primal, and historically precede the religion of the oppressors. This is a meditation, a study, a prayer to these ancient ideas.

lyrics

AN ORGY OF HANDS BREAK SKIN AND BONES. BLACKENED NIGHT SO FULL OF MOON’S DELIGHT. A BACCUS TO BE BORN AS ONE TO
ENLIGHT. A STILLNESS SO NERVOUS AND READY. LEAVES CRAWL AND CRACK-DEAD AND HEAVY. ANCIENT, PRECEDES THE CROSS,
THE WALL, AND LENT. A CONGREGATION. THE GOAT. THE SACRAMENT, OF SUFFERING IS THE PRICE AND THE PENCE.
SHRILL SCREAMS BREAK THE REVERENT SILENCE. SELFLESS ECSTASY HOT IN DESIRING MOANS FROM BLOODFEST. COMMENCE.
DANCE OF THE MAENADS. ONE WITH THE GOAT HEAD GOD. PURIFY THE MORTAL, THE WEAK, AND THE FLAWED. A CRACK OF BONE. HAIR. RUBBER SKIN BREAKS. HOT BLOOD FROM WOUNDS THE MOUTH DOTH TAKE.
