about

My usual nihilistic bantering. This one is about the judgment that earth needs to burn to rid it of humanity. Minos was the king of Crete, sentencing his people to the Labyrinth. He became a judge in the underworld after his death. Scylla was a monster that would drown sailors that came too close to her domain.

lyrics

Minos!

I invoke thy power.
Blessed art thou infinite wrath!
Banish the forked tongue,
Thy judgment is absolute.
Conquer this realm in the name of justice.
With steel you bring the quiet.
Crimson flowers in the garden,
The chains of death: Merciless bond!

Burn the earth!

Fingers divide grains of sand,
A line etched into the dust.
Till the soil with fire.
Scorch the world with shit.
The rope laps the neck,
The body falls through the ash.
With grace and dignity we kneel,
The grave takes us with open arms!

In silence we beg for mercy,
Your vengeful love is pure.
Calling out to Scylla,
As we drown together, betrayed!
Plague and famine for treachery.
Sealed with a kiss, the mark of the end.
The gates to the labyrinth flung open,
The prison of Daedalus consumes...
...eternal!

Minos! Lend me thy blindfold!

A fascination with the way deities come and go throughout history. Now that the Enlightenment is over, a new age has arrive; an Age of Endarkenment. ... more
