Venus Armata Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Soften Our Evil Hearts (11:15)
Soften our evil hearts oh mother of kindness
Smother the storms of those who hate us
The cruelty of our hearts is the ominous danger
Let us not harm one another

Soften our evil hearts,
Breathe your wisdom onto earth
The human life-fire is blood
Seven spires inside your heart, we won’t add another
May love rule in the death of poison and dwell therein

Hate is like the sharpness of dying
Use our hearts as drums
and rule over us with love
Compunction will awaken the grave
Ignite our souls with your warming light
May wrath die in its false desire
For in life and joy we shall strive

We are all born in hunger
And you offer your breast
With impunity we rob you
And make your heart bleed with boundless grief
Allow faith to lighten our blindness
Let us kiss your wounds
and drink a pearl of wisdom therein
2. Red Sulphur (6:41)
Beside my ghost
I suppose I was there
But in my soul I swear
I wasn’t, but feeding this vine growing inside

Without my knowledge
I was driven off course
And all this bound me to you
You never had any role to play
But to shine as a beacon

What if I had let it run wild
Brought it into the light of day
Instead of nurturing it
in my silent soul

The antidote is inside this sword
Looming above our heads
With its unique poison to be cooked

Why is this holding me down
While I try to rise up
Is this fight between the two birds
insoluble and eternal?

From this tension I know I can grow
But the chasm is too vast
Will I ever marry both worlds,
or leave one behind?

What will emanate from this war?
What will fly above water?
What fugitive matter am I made of?
Unearth the first one

Don’t leave anything in the cold
Lost in a hidden corner
I know I will never rely on the world below to surrender

I’ll take the sword by force and turn it against myself
Be the knight of my own hell
And my own glory

Or let the sword fall over my head
Be the king of my own health
And by its unique poison,
The queen of my soul

Beside my ghost
I suppose I was there
But in my soul I swear I wasn’t,
but feeding this love like a peaceful fire

Now I shall be truly resigned
And leave it deep inside
The devil may say it is not real but who cares now

When I thought I was at the end of my rope
Suddenly I was bold
And utterly transformed
From the deepest core of my being
The winged bird has risen,
And looked at me without fear
3. Marriage in Death (9:00)
In the underworld again
I don’t know what happened
I thought I built a shelter of my own

Underground once more
J’entends sonner le glas
And the mourning of a mother

Roaming again in this corridor
Driven by these subterranean winds
That have cursed my way once
But all by myself this time, why?
And my horse is now winged and all white
But the same dried tears, and desolate ground
Will Spring finally come back?

Life will recover
And a new wind will rise
Spreading seeds of wheat
All over the Earth
And gold will multiply
Brighter and lighter
Together we’ll allow life to grow
A promise of harvest even if a late one

I won’t bend under the weight of snow on my wings
Nor fear the winds entering my bones, and hardening my blood

I’ll climb this waterfall backwards
However long it will take
A promise of harvest, a late one
But my heart will be in it
Finally my heart will make up its pulses

The sun will recover its power
Over the cycle of life
Brighter and lighter,
I will walk solemnly in your steps
And join you at the end of the road
For our marriage in death
Then spring will return once more, even if I don’t
It’s of little import,
As long as we are given back to ourselves
And spread the grains
4. Soothing but Cruel (6:10)
Folded in your embrace
Your eyes are the brightest eyes
That ever hit me with their rays
I will do you no harm
When I am as strong as you are, and fair of face,
It will be me and you, it’s soothing but cruel

Your light into my light will flow
Your wine into my water
When I am black as ink
We will cleanse the stars
Until they are as white as pearls
A seven petalled-rose is looming up there
For me and you,
Soothing but cruel
In the shadow of the earth
I am all yours

You take my beauty while I receive your soul
Your body will return when I am blotted out
As I feel you from afar
I feel my power growing back
For this battle of fire
Your loving eyes are there for me
You’re soothing, but cruel
One only when the earth is fully between us
For me, and you, it is soothing but cruel
5. Belly of the Closed House (9:55)
Love is stretching from horizon to horizon,
From Heaven to Hell
Now we are caught between Heaven and Hell

We will reach each other by staring at the sky
And drown together in the ocean above
Where there is no false sun
Our knowledge of fire is what it sets ablaze
Let’s stand in the flames and rise from our ashes

Now is the time to unite
In the shut chamber of my heart
And be a receptacle for the dead
Its door is now closed, nothing will escape

Some hearts have to be sacrificed
For the movement of the sun
Like fruits, they grow out of life
In the darkest night
6. Torture of Fire (5:14)
Of this torture of fire
I can take more, and more
And I will take some more
Until the fire dies down
Until the fire burns the fire

Of this torture of fire
I will take some more
Until the fire dies down
Until the fire burns the fire
And I feel the burn of truth

Engulf yourself in the flames
Be roasted in what you are
Sing yourself to dance
May I suffocate in my own tomb
And my tomb suffocate with me

May you roast in your own fire
Until the air is no more
and you fly away in flakes
May I suffocate in my own tomb
And my tomb suffocate with me
Until I feel the burn of truth

Enter me with your breath
Heal me with your tongues of fire
I give my beating heart
To your raging flames
To fly away in flakes
My heart burnt to ashes

Enter me with your breath
Heal me with your tongues of fire
Only then, I’ll carry the seeds of light
and feed the quiet flame inside
7. Venus Armata (16:19)
May is rising
Like a dream I fade away
From your arms after you have searched me for years

My tears are falling
Like tiny white pearls
I vanish in a vapour of benzoin
Goodbye my beloved,
Goodbye, I am needed here no more
Go on and make your own way

***

Follow her voice,
and be empowered
Follow her voice,
and be empowered
by her love chant
But resist her charms
It will lead you
to the center of the earth
Withstand her fire
her ancestral light
her beauty unveiled,
asleep and naked,
to your soul will give rise

In the fiery darkness,
I found a king among the flames

Follow her voice,
and be empowered
by her love chant
But resist her charms
Withstand her fire,
Her beauty unveiled,
And turbulence will give way
to a blissful Spring

***

How would you have known there was a ghost living in your veins
How would you have known there was a ghost living in your veins
How would you have known there was a ghost living in your veins
Until you are fire-hardened
An adversary of fire
How would you have known there was a ghost living in your veins

Wake up and see that you are the one chosen
Her inner light will bless you with a feast of blossom
Exhilarating forces of May in your heart are dawning
Exhilarating flowers of May in you are growing

No longer cold, nor impure, we are
No longer heavy, nor obscure, we are
Time to collect the aniada,
The burning nettle and flammula
May dawning, pink and exalted
Rejuvenating

For so long, my heart, where were you hiding?
Why did Spring have to return in this rain of tears?
Because without your tears
I would have never been awaken,
And without mine, you would have never been at rest
Germinative water has to come down, so we rise up
A battle of love resolved into an adieu

***

Winds have scattered our voices like echoes
Until they gather as a bold plainsong
Winds have scattered promises and hope
Of embrace and reunion of our souls

One of us brought death into this world,
Another one drove it away
Her power is only one
Her triumph is a solace to us all
She must return to the realms of water now
From sea foam we emerge, to sea foam we’ll return

***

What will spring from this fountain of grace?
Who will be turned into a stone, but a watery one
Who has been burnt at the stake, and now is shielded from fire
Time has come to bring the bride back to life

***

Mountains have melted, at the softness of your wings
There’s no dragon I couldn’t fight, and no desert land to fear

You paved my way with thorns, and then lilies,
Now I am crowned with your roses
Thou hast proved me in the fire and no evil was found in me

Like a giant eagle, flying above the fray
No dragon I couldn’t fight, no desert land to fear

For this stain of fire, I was given at your sight
For its power, they may burn me
But with love I’ll fight, your love oh mother
And your armor of love will save me.
