The Maldoror Chants: Hermaphrodite Lyrics

(3)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Prologue (5:10)
2. The Weighty Burden of an Eternal Secret (6:25)
Over there in a grove surrounded by flowers slumbers the Hermaphrodite, sound asleep upon sward, drenched with his tears. The moon`s disc is clear of the cloud mass and with pale beams she caresses this smooth youthful form. His features manifest the most manly vigour coeval with a heavenly virgin`s grace. Nothing in him apears natura, not even the muscle of his body, which force their way across the harmonious contours of feminine forms. One arm curves over his forehead, the other hand rests against his breast as if to repress the beat of a heart closed to all confidences, and fraught with The Weighty Burden of an Eternal Secret. Weary of life and ashamed to walk among beings who do not resemble him, despairhas won his soul and he wanders alone like a beggar in the alley. How does he find the wherewithal to exist?

Compassionate souls watch over him closely, without his suspecting such surveillance, and do not abandon him: he is so good...so resigned. Sometimes he talks readily to those os sensitive disposition, without touching their hands, and standing his distance for fear of an imagined danger. If asked why he has taken solitude for companion, he raises his eyes heavenward and has difficulty holding back a tear of reproach against providence, but he does not answer this imprudent question, which sheds upon his snowy eyelids the blush of a morning rose
3. Along the Road That Leads to Bedlam (3:38)
4. These Tresses Are Sacred (1:40)
Through the branches of the trees the awakened birds gaze rapturously on his malencholy visage. The nightingale is unwilling to utter its cavatinas of crystal.The wood has become as August as a grave because of his nocturnal presence. Stands several paces back, and thus you will do well. These Tresses Are Sacred: The Hermaphrodite himself whished it.
5. May His Illusion Last Until Dawn's Awakening (4:48)
6. Chimerical Hope (4:26)
7. Do Not Open Your Eyes (4:19)
Do not open your eyes
