The lovely coppercoloured mountain of flesh and starres.
In my hands I cup my decline as it flowers into them -
this is the rippling of the ages: our lives like rain, the small shower, the downfall, the thunderous pouring... in some greenfield of rape we lie...

Dominion of this and that: he had one savage head like a great dead dog; he had one sad aged head, weeping;
his other head... Over in the distance the hills are moving - London Bridge burns.
Why!: God may be dead?
Many little children cry and laugh. My mind to me a kingdom is - shall You kiss me as before?

So then - here I am. The sky - what colour shall I call it? From turquoise to what? Dark and light it is. Under it the redfirecat shrugs its shoulders. Her smile is bonewhite glory. The moon is a tiny starre, and all the starres are shot from the glowing moons. Mothers all around me blackfaced redspotted. Michael. Gabriel. Samael.
Azrael.
I laid down and wept. Let my mind not go. Bubbling lights all around me. I laid down and wept. Her smile is bonewhite glory; we may as well go with the angels... l laid down and wept. Sheeted wings, blackamaline; my love for You is very great. The breath of the starres. Between the ivory towers of Her Teeth there I say in the redbed of Her flesh there is the goldenroom of God I say there: these are God's pillars.
Her smile was bonewhite glory. We may as well go with the angels...

    General CommentThe song is actually by Nature and Organisation, but it's essentially all the same thing.
    I think my favorite moment is the pause and shift to David saying "So then: here I am."

    Very pensive.

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs by Current 93, but also very abstract, so much so that you can't define specific meanings, besides the simple fact the song about the smiling of his wife. And just like JohnnyDeath I think the highlight of the song is the long pause and then the lines that begin at "So then here I am".
