Shifting inside patterns
the division multiples
echoing the mystery
mimicking the slide
sound searching slowly
below the flaming web
moving with his eyes like fire
with his jackal-head

(with his jackal-head)

Give it all to birth
give it all to life
take it all for granted
until we turn and die

She answers with her staff
silence from her breath
silhouettes of temples falling
visions of certain death
hand lift it from the pocket
the prophet falls to red
the sacrifice is offered
to his jackal-head

(to his jackal-head)

(chorus)

He who defiles the tomb of the pharaoh
shall surely find swift death
He who defiles the womb of the
pharaoh's queen
shall surely find swift death

    My InterpretationThe whole song is about the egyptian belief of the enduring of the soul and afterlife, and the rituals - performed by priests dressed as the egyptian gods who taught the rituals initially to the people - meant to help the souls along their way.

    What's particularly interesting is the Chorus, which is rather ironic, reffering to the practices of those (egyptian or not) who put all their faith in deliverance in the afterlife, while doing nothing to evolve spiritually in the present and earn it...
