Absu Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Between the Absu of Eridu & Erech (4:08)
An empty void will always enlarge itself
It stretches from the nether waters inside
As the chaos lives again: vapors condense
Ushum-Gal allots the beasts to the chantry

Eridu!
Erech!

The waters twist and turn
The malign sprite dances

The natural fiend strikes
The bottom of the sea

How deep the engulfment sleeps?
And the chasm, how deep?

How deep the engrossment haunts?
And the gulch, how deep?

The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Eridu:
It will call the temples
The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Erech:
It will call the mountains

The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Eridu:
It will call the temples
The bedlam is always wide awake
And the chaos alive
Between The Absu of Erech:
It will call the mountains

An empty void will always enlarge itself
It stretches from the nether waters inside
As the chaos lives again: vapors condense
Ushum-Gal allots the beasts to the chantry
2. Night Fire Canonization (3:19)
Remember!
Remember the drift of the night's fire?
Where the flames run around with desire
Blazes spread to the fore charring the foe
Granting the competence and burning all

The headmaster of magicians is
The serpent -king and the slayer
The possessor of the torches speaks
To the night with desire

The night's fire dances to a song of fall and wonder
The sultry weapon that calls you here now

The majesty is the power
Which corrupts the offspring (the paltry)
That shall never transpire
And always be denied
That shall never transpire
And always be denied (be declined)

The sun is sable
The moon is weeping
The planets are failing
As the earth starts to shake
The flames look secure
Within all the chaos
The fire sounds safe
Like a voice from the sky

The keys to hereafter
The flaxen-crimson embers
The symbols and the signals of
Destruction and withering
A night's fire is
The portrait of what was
Of what is
Of what is to come

So we shall singe them and
We shall burn them and
We will destroy them to
Remember the pith of the night's fire

The night's fire torches hatred to stone
As the sun turns cold
The stars fall fast and
The earth turns black
3. Amy (4:54)
Many became the victim of the hunt
and attack
Inside the Order was a ruse for the fall
A greater key was used to open the portals
Afterwards, mages were allocated
underneath

He practiced his knacks and skills of trickery
Most malicious, he became revolting
Spirits were locked inside the mirrored vestibule
The Circle was ambushed by cornered, lined frontiers
Grabbing a staff, he waited for the practical
Dressed in the robe, he adjured the Circle
(Faultless seal, a greater key, ascendancy)

"O' Amy, you're the foremost of sphere and space"
"O' Amy, you're the foremost of fortune and splendour"

He saw and aloof principle as one being
Most sharp-eyed, he watched day transfigure
to the night (from the fire, combustion)

The mages self-sustained the beckon (summoning)
Studying bleak matter tied to obscured strings
A morph-genetic field of imps disturbed then
And the lesson was a ruse for the fall (combustion, ascendancy)
4. Nunbarshegunu (3:06)
The old woman of Nippur
Instructs Ninlil to walk the banks of Idnunbirdu
She thrusts he magic (k)
To harvest the mind of the great
mountain-lord Enlil

The bright-eyed king will fall to your anguish
His soul lures the hexagonal room
He who decrees fates - his spirit is caught
His soul lured to the hexagonal room

Nunbarshegunu
A silk veil strewn over you
Your face is the cosmos
You hide it in shame

The lord of fates enthralled
He's bound to Ninlil

The lord of fates enthralled
He's bound to Ninlil
Your daughter, your weapon
You want to be the cosmos!

No shame, no limits
Mother of Ninlil acts
Lord of the fates deluded
To Kurnugi, Enlil is cast
Sin is conceived in the monarchy of death
The dynasty persists: the lunar god comes
to life!

Nunbarshegunu
A silk veil strewn over you
Your face is the cosmos
You hide it in shame
5. 13 Globes (4:47)
Within upheaval
I am filed between them
A dark cloud: evident
Apparent: parasite-hoards

Contained by ancient tongues
Aghast in aspect
On momentous days
I teach validities
Of the sea and the secrets
The crux: "The Primeval Source"
In the planes of the shining lodes
Za-ab: return to the source

Elemental!

Flanked by the sixth and seventh
The spheres which make the signs
Vual and Scor
I'm Zagan of 13 Globes

Flanked by the sixth and seventh
The spheres which make the signs
Vual and Scor
I'm Zagan of 13 Globes

You shall ascend: Durson
MA.GUR.NU.AB.ZU
Aid me minder: Durson

33 legions bow before me now

Fundamental!
Flanked by the sixth and seventh

6. ...of the Dead Who Never Rest in Their Tombs Are the Attendance of Familiar Spirits Including: A.) Diversified Signs Inscribed B.) Our Earth of Black C.) Voor (7:03)
[A. Diversified Signs Inscribed / B. Our Earth of Black / C.]

Voor Our Earth of black blemishes with a curse
Conclaves of spirits evoke and call forth
One grand night follows by a lone cold night
As the seven grottos head to the bowels of Earth

The dead shall know there is never peace to make the first sign of Voor
Flouting through the gates of astral planes to the second sign of Kish

Dwelling in the outlines of wraiths to the third sign of Koth
The dead shall nosh upon passageways of ye Elder Ones

Diversified signs inscribe a reminder for the shade of spirits
It protects those who would evoke ye powers by night

Serpentine lamias and ravage-clawed harpies
Liquefy and eat into the gifts of decay
Every dream of man and woman coils by the worm
As the ghouls race to the world of the living

The dead shall know there is never peace to make the first sign of Voor
Flouting through the gates of astral planes to the second sign of Kish

Dwelling in the outlines of wraiths to the third sign of Koth
The dead shall nosh upon passageways of ye Elder Ones

Diversified signs inscribe a reminder for the shade of spirits
It protects those who would evoke ye powers by night

Serpentine lamias and ravage-clawed harpies
Liquefy and eat into the gifts of decay
Every dream of man and woman coils by the worm
As the ghouls race to the world of the living
7. Magic(k) Square Cipher (4:49)
The balance emergence
The strict ardour
Loshu is expecting
The first of the six

The essence of Saturn
Yesod and Moon

There is not a square to close the system
Five breaks silence
The stabilization
The lamp courier

Three Wands and Three Adepts
Six equates strife

Tripareth and Yî King
Scorpio: Son of Sun
Gratify master keys to two gates of initiation
24th Hexagram
4th line formed: Sacrament
Binah drawn, harmonized to six times: 24th
Hexagram

All planets are arranged
Tripareth reaffirmed
Six concentric in the cube
Lunar path?

The hits of the Swords inside the magic(k)
square
Represents the cosmos and energy
The temper of the inquisitor
Represents the Phallus and the prince-priest
The six of Swords is the symbol of the Sun
Showing the full establishment
Their points touch the hedge of the cipher
TO META OHPION!

The six of Swords is the symbol of the Sun
Showing the full establishment
Their points touch the hedge of the cipher
TO META OHPION!

Their points touch the hedge of the cipher
TO META OHPION!
8. In the Name of Auebothiabathabaithobeuee (3:26)
In the name
I give the powers to the spell
In the name
True visions of time are forthcoming
In the name
I confer brawn to incantations
In the name
Gray vapors begin to clamber high

The great scimitar of Barzai
Alabaster statuette of Yebsu
The representation of Koth
Cobalt flames light the blaze of Laurel

In the day
Mars and Saturn make collision
In the day
Place the ewer upon the fire
In the day
All the secrets are deaf in silence
In the day
I am the Lord of every Spectre

In the light
Grant equal parts of rune and weapon
In the light
Place the green glass onto the seal
In the light
Four winds cry the words of control
In the light
Seven nights will unchain the soul

In the name
I give uproar to the Great Abyss
In the name
I give the powers to the spell
In the name
Of the unction inside the sigil
In the name
Vaporous smoke shall arise
9. Girra's Temple (2:39)
This is for you
Temple in the earth
A beacon of fire
A shrine for Eridu

The moon's bright trace
A pathway to your vault
Your spell is close
Its light holds a face

The Sun still sleeps
While the ancient ones return

Here stands the mighty chantry
Inlaid with black-blue lapis
You're seized by the Ushum-Gal
Enclosed in Girra's Temple
Sirrush is flying over
Storming over Neti's gates
Ea awaits your arrival
Inside...

The seeds have been planted
A long, long time ago
Early, utopian visions
You can only fantasize
One abyss: one temple
One mind: one design
In course of the setting Sun
You can only realize

Bashmu!
Sirrush! Ea!
Narr Marratu!

Narr Marratu!
Ea! Kingu!
Lakhmu!
Lakhamu!
Lakhmu!
Lakhamu!

Here stands the mighty chantry
Inlaid with black-blue lapis
You're seized by the Ushum-Gal
Enclosed in Girra's Temple
Sirrush is flying over
Storming over Neti's gates
Ea awaits your arrival
Inside...
10. Those of the Void Will Re-Enter (4:56)
Thousand after thousand
The years of tradition linger
For the wisdom of magic(k)
The supra catalyst swells
Servants of the arcane order
The hypnotized beings
Can you commemorate?
The burden of ignorance

Clad in robes imprinted with spells
Regress time - degenerate
Founders of mankind,
Come lay your claim
Revert - Annunaki
Those of the void will re-enter
Clad in robes imprinted with spells
Regress time - degenerate
Founders of mankind...
Regress time - Regress time
Those of the void have re-entered!
11. Sceptre Command (5:00)
Namtar, you're the Hyle of plague-ness
A watchman: bound and bound
My staff is the answer (for elucidation)

We shall not climb to the origin of elements
We must examine the base of Gudua

In order to harvest a benthos existence
I call upon the backing of Gugalanna

I paint the bow at the gold crown
Three arrows spear the heart of the staff
The placement of Mars must be equal
Enrapture within Sceptre Command!

The Cylinder seal projects the spell of triangular silhouettes of Irra
Hear me, Namtar

Descending by the stages
Gugalanna

Circules of this great dwelling
Gugalanna
O' breathing, flowing orb - you're in place
O' formless, lifeless mock - your gray place

The Cylinder seal projects the spell of
triangular silhouettes of Irra
Hear me, Namtar

Descending by the stages
Gugalanna

Circules of this great dwelling
Gugalanna
O' breathing, flowing orb - you're in place
O' formless, lifeless mock - your gray place

THOSE ABOVE...
THOSE BELOW...
FIRST ORDER!

I paint the bow at the gold crown
Three arrows spear the heart of the staff
The placement of Mars must be equal
Enrapture within Sceptre Command!

The Cylinder seal projects the spell of triangular silhouettes of Irra
Hear me, Namtar

Descending by the stages
Gugalanna

Circules of this great dwelling
Gugalanna
O' breathing, flowing orb - you're in place
O' formless, lifeless mock - your gray place

Thank you, O' Great Ones
Now, Kuta's repressed
My solar cantrip...
My fourteen afreets...
Anon, Gudua's placed

[Narrator:]
Three embraced each other
Namtar, Nergal and Mars
The truncheon gripped the light
Command - the bolts were shot
12. Ye Uttuku Spells (4:42)
ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

At nightfall, burgundy eyes arise
Beginning of the cosmic dances
Surrealistic, the serpent's command
Ugallu, obey the magus' rule

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

A frenzied rupture opens the stone
Out pours the beam and the shaft of light
Point it straight to the mountain's zenith
Ye Utukku awake, Utukku

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

Unrestrained, the light razes the night
Savage, causer of the mystical
Bring the Ginyaatlie of lava
Achieve theory from the mythical

Nisir - Tedloonetaa of salvation
Nisir - Mountain of elevation
Kukhwa - Burn over the dome
Ye Utukku awake, ye Absu rage

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent

ANNIHILATE - the seeds of real
ABANDON - the standard dimension feel
ASSIMILATE - the logic of chaos
ABSU - Balance the serpent
