Philosopher Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Rectitude (4:10)
Everything is vanity
Phenomenal life
Order comes from chaos
Human being annihilation

Nonexistence is the existence without attributes
No qualities, no activity as far as meditation

Right view, right livelihood, right speech, right intention
Right action, right mindfulness, right effort, right concentration

Individual soul is an illusion
Separatism: root of all evil
Universe comes from nothing
Feelings arise from ignorance

Nonexistence is the existence without attributes
No qualities, no activity as far as meditation

[Chorus]

Renunciation of desires
Tale of everlasting day
The salvation of the anguish
Labyrinth of mortal clay
Aspiration, pronunciation
Truth and justice, all in vain
Desperation, desolation
Will be returned to the men

Illuminate me

[Chorus]

[Based on the Dhammapada & other texts on Gautama's thought]
2. Wisdom (5:27)
All is uncertain even to the happy one
Action is what defeats reason
Everything is valid for the winner
Passions sharpen smartness

With your veins
In the skies
Seeing claims
Dancing lies
On the flames
Mortal flies

Fright can be seen in the face
Evil opposes another evil
Love extinguishes another love
Appearance is what hurts

In this land of dreamers
Time forgets reality
In this field of soldiers
Grief puts out sincerity
In this net of sinners
Wisdom shows the tyranny

Virtue doesn't fear abundance
Justice doesn't suffer from injustice
Kismet goes ahead without compassion
It's necessary to learn to die

[Based on selected essays by Seneca]
3. Liberty (5:12)
All power comes from God
All weakness comes from God
All knowledge comes from God
All ignorance comes from God

Say goodbye to being free
Love slavery, truthful Christian
Quit your Liberty

All joy comes from God
All suffering comes from God
All good comes from God
All evil comes from God

Move away from the destiny
Trusting his word, he'll be a martyr
Quit your Liberty

Describe the time
Your final rhyme
Bleeding the insane
Eternally
Dying his pain

In the shadows
You will see
Without creed, without deed
Your Liberty

All weakness comes from God
All ignorance comes from God
All suffering comes from God
All evil comes from God

Describe the time
Your final rhyme
Bleeding the insane
Eternally
Dying his pain

[Based on Rousseau's books: The Social Contract & The Confessions]
4. Logos (9:14)
From discord is born the broadest unity
From confusion arises the widest serenity

War is the king of all
Trial is the crown of the Lord

Hide your folly
Show your darkness

The one that is always
The always who is by now
The now that is hiding
The hiding who is the one

Logos

Wisdom is common
Wisdom of bitterness
Wisdom is one
Wisdom of loneliness

The one is made up of everything
Everything issues from its completion

Fire will judge the appraisers
Fire will sentence even God

This world in vain
The sabre in pain
This bow of aim
The wound of claim

[Based on excerpts by Heraclitus]
5. Antichrist (3:52)
Man aspires to be the superman
Aspires to the ungovernable
He longs to be almost a nihilistic being

The past belongs to me tomorrow
There's someone who was born posthumously

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

Man aspires to be the superman
Although they disapprove of him
Although they condemn him

The past belongs to me tomorrow
There's someone who was born posthumously

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

The good God and the Devil are products of decadence

Convictions imprison you
Compassion dies on you
Forget the prodigy
Forsake the humility
Forage the identity

Man aspires to be the superman

Malefactor hope; weak spirit
Passive intelligence; dark dependence

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

The good God and the Devil are products of decadence

[Chorus]

Foresee the infamy

[Based on Nietzsche's books: The Antichrist & Thus Spoke Zarathustra]
6. Desperation (6:47)
Man aspires to be the superman
Aspires to the ungovernable
He longs to be almost a nihilistic being

The past belongs to me tomorrow
There's someone who was born posthumously

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

Man aspires to be the superman
Although they disapprove of him
Although they condemn him

The past belongs to me tomorrow
There's someone who was born posthumously

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

The good God and the Devil are products of decadence

Convictions imprison you
Compassion dies on you
Forget the prodigy
Forsake the humility
Forage the identity

Man aspires to be the superman

Malefactor hope; weak spirit
Passive intelligence; dark dependence

I vomit the cross that destroys conscience
I deplore the one who lives on poverty

The good God and the Devil are products of decadence

[Chorus]

Foresee the infamy

[Based on Nietzsche's books: The Antichrist & Thus Spoke Zarathustra]

8. (untitled) (7:05)
Morals lead into decadence
Crowd of no one cry out
Vows from fools point out fake presence
Lover of saintliness
Kill your -self
Of blame and regret

My voice, your mass
Should plead for a new deal
My choice, your tears
Should please for what is real

If you show your skill
You will lose through hate
If you say your true will
You won't see the day
If you feign your distress
You will fail through fate
If you try you could feel
Before you the way

It's the anarchy that can arise like a beast
It's the structure that cannot complete its form
It's the emptiness when the light tries to create

Eternal send of humanity
Single line of the plurality
Transformation of divinity
Condemnation of the blasphemy

Who leads well -without leading-
Is not a warrior
Who fights bravely -without fighting-
Does not know anger
Who crushes enemies -without crushing-
Does not fight against them

Preaching without any gift
Teaching without any sword
Praying without any guilt
Learning without any word
Drawing no shapes
Deep fantasy
Painting the view
Of a cruel harmony

Silent leads into tranquility
Bird with no wings screech now
Vows from sages point out fake presence
Prince of calmness
Kill your -self
Of redemption and pardon

[Repeat verses 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6]

[Based on the book by Lao Tzu: Tao Teh Ching]
