Essential salts of animals
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure
Ahhh, ahhh
Oh

Unhappy is he to whom the memories of childhood
Bring only fear and sadness
Oho, yes lovely
Wretched is he who looks back upon lone hours
In vast and dismal chambers
With brown hangings
And maddening rows of antique book
Watch them in twilight groves
Oh,in twilight groves
Oh,in twilight groves
Ah

By method from the essential salts
Of human dust
A philosopher may call up the shape
Of any dead ancestor
From the dust where into his body
Has been incinerated, incinerated, incinerated

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned
He's returning in every newborn child
In every newborn child
In every newborn child

Essential salts of animals may
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure

You're under pressure
Christ has returned
He's returning in every newborn child

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned
He's returning in every newborn child
In every newborn child

    General CommentMost of the lyrics is from the book The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward by HP Lovecraft. It's probably teh scientist Borelli who wrote it in one other book. It's about waking dead people up...Read the book, it's very interesting..

    General Commentville's voice is amazing, i can honestly say that i think he has the best voice like ever...cuz i mean think about it: he can go really really deep, and then he can also go really high....and he can also really sing with only a slight rasp in his voice kinda like in the chorus in buried alive by love...thats just me tho i jus think hes so versatile....this song is awesome it is really different and cool...their old shit like on the '95 demo is alot harder and its really good
