In the end of time, in times of revelation
Lion from the north appear in the dark nation
Löwe aus der Mitternacht
Tear down the curtain of Paroketh
Ecce vicit Ariel
Break the seal and make the Lion rise
When Man has found all the three treasures
Stars will fall, the Lion will rise
Ariel, break the seventh seal
Abaddon, rise from the great black sea
Read the forecast - Fear the Eagle
See the wonders - Trust the Lion
Read the prophecy, the savior of midnight
Ascending right now to bring us Borean light
Löwe aus der Mitternacht
Tear down the curtain of Paroketh
Ecce vicit Ariel
Break the seal and make the Lion rise
When Man has found all the three treasures
Stars will fall, the Lion will rise
Ariel, break the seventh seal
Abaddon, rise from the great black sea

    General CommentMore gnostic themes from Therion, in particular connected to Revelations. Ariel is an angel in Christian mysticism whose name literally means "Lion of God." (The song name means "The Lion Midnight.") In short, they're conflating him with the gnostic Demiurge, the Satan-like "God" that created the physical universe and is the source of evil as he leaves our souls trapped in the crude matter of creation.

    Abaddon appears in Revelations and stuff about it as the "angel of the abyss," who some equate to Satan and others as the keeper of the gate to Hell who keeps Satan entrapped until the day of Armageddon.

    I'm not sure about the stuff about the "three treasures," or the Eagle or Paroketh, but that's what I was able to find on the other stuff.

    My Interpretationwell the midnight lion is probably a direct link to sekhmet, you know, when you can see the sun at midnight... mitternacht=midnight löwe=lion

    The three treasures obviously refer to the ark and other techno-shamanic artefacts used into the war against ignorance that the gods left behind for their disciples to manage as they were gone.

    Definitely not done though. Some people link Nibiru with Sekhmet. Freaking with the Annunaki bullshit doesn't work all the time you know. You have to keep your blood cool and realize that bringing a brother down in a MMA ring or whatever is just useful for inter-destruction of pagans and criminals against the mighty mothers and their child, not a way of life that's worth calling it that way.

    Ecce vicit Ariel=here vanquished ariel. It does mean ''lion of god" and SAT means daughter in old Egyptian. Ariel also meant altar, while Uriel was Light of god and Lucifer god of light...

    General CommentThe Veil of Paroketh is the veil that separates the bottom four Sephiroth on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life with the upper six. The sixth Sephira is associated with Gold, or the perfection of matter.
