Were you not humble
not submissive?
Would you not bend your knee?
Did you question
or object
to the word of the many?
Had you a vision of your own?

Saint of the damned
Icon of the rejected
Primeval insurgent
Ascend O' Morning star
Ascend

"How art thou fallen from heaven, O' day-star, son of the morning
How art thou cut down to the ground, that didst cast lots over the nations
For thou has said in thine hear, I will ascend into heaven
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God
I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High"

Man has been reared by the four errors
and never saw himself other than imperfectly
Such is then the pleasure of the common herd
to quench their envious thirst in misery

    General CommentOne of my favorites from The Adversary. Uses Lucifer as a source of rebellious inspiration, not to mention interprets biblical passage (Isaiah 14:12) through song.
