lyrics

“Communion gives us warmth.
Singleness gives us light.
At immeasurable distance stands one single star at the zenith.
This star is the God and goal of humanity.
In this world one is Abraxas,
Creator and destroyer of one's world.” – Carl Jung

Interior life merits not just attention but dedicated exploration.
Explore the warehouse of repressed desires.
This spiritual ocean, fished for enlightenment.
For he was the champion of dreamers.
Stillness spoke and brought forth creative illness.
The descent into the undermind, a bout with insanity.

A narcissistic self-deification, transcendence.
Inner disturbance mirror war of polarity.
Psychosis menacing psyche.
Troubled by visions and whispers.
Active imagination, the gate between minds, memories, dreams

Delve through the confounding revelation of the psychic journey.
For the superficial observer, this will appear as madness.
Phantasmagoric morality play. Bring back the wisdom of the hated
Move between poles, this war of light, darkness
Rational, irrational, conscious, unconscious.

Face your demons, boiling in the shadows.
He saw the land of the dead, felt incest.
Felt death by the suffocation of the serpent.

Devour the liver of innocent.
Even the devil called him hateful.
Dregs of thought are the speech of the soul.
The slave to virtue finds the way as little as the slave to vices
This all-divine madness prevails.
Find it inside, from the deepness of your soul.

The beauty of reaching the bottom is to gaze up at reality.
Knowing you cannot dig deeper.
Agony needed for renewal.
Peer through the Window of Oblivion.
Peer through the window.

There is a crack in the window.
The light plays around it.
The book was opened.
And the word becomes the truth.
