"Invocation" as written by and Jaz Coleman Paul Raven....
(Of the whore bitch goddess Babylon)

Hearts of darkness and hate
O evil, oblivion your fate
O betrayers I come a war without end
My enemy's enemy is my friend

Mankind becomes the whore
Temples are empty - no law
False religions shall rise
Flags of scarlet shall fly
O destroyer of world
Babylon

    General CommentIt's hard to pick the best song of the "Hosannas" album, but maybe "Invocation" is the one. Like Jaz said, "it's a great, epic track that describes everything that is happening in the world".
    I might be wrong, but Babylon means Iraque and the destroyer is... Bush, right?
    "My enemy's enemy is my friend" - it means that Jaz stands by the side of the poor nations for their blood was spillt by the hand of the rich nations ("a rich man's war in poor man's blood" is a part of the chorus of "Judas Goat").
