Stopped in the crossroads of my life
Wrapped in the world of eternal strife
I’m looking for the meaning of the universe
searching in myself melody
to drive me to the harmony
I’m hung from my right ankle
but I can see the truth

[bridge:]
The secret of the alchemy
rests in my crossed leg dark mystery
What is the price of my soul’s crack?
that one which ties my hands in my back

[chorus:]
In my way to the knowledge
I chose the road of sacrifice
I will be fey of secret things
I’ll see the other paradise
I’m head-down

Since life began
The hanged man
the time drowns
smiles Satan
The hanged man

It’s the time to understand
why my clock stop the sand?
My will is the only force
that governs my fate
No religions, no beliefs
if I read the overleaf
of the life book just than
I will see the god’s face

[bridge]

[chorus]

[choir:]
Since life began
The hanged man
Is seeing head-down
how the time drowns
What is the price of my soul’s crack?
that one which ties my hands
in my back

[chorus]

    Song MeaningFrom the tarot expert Waite, in the of The Hanged Man major Arcana tarot card:

    "The gallows from which he is suspended forms a Tau cross, while the figure--from the position of the legs--forms a fylfot cross. There is a nimbus about the head of the seeming martyr. It should be noted (1) that the tree of sacrifice is living wood, with leaves thereon; (2) that the face expresses deep entrancement, not suffering; (3) that the figure, as a whole, suggests life in suspension, but life and not death. It is a card of profound significance, but all the significance is veiled. One of his editors suggests that Éliphas Lévi did not know the meaning, which is unquestionable nor did the editor himself. It has been called falsely a card of martyrdom, a card a of prudence, a card of the Great Work, a card of duty; but we may exhaust all published interpretations and find only vanity. I will say very simply on my own part that it expresses the relation, in one of its aspects, between the Divine and the Universe.

    He who can understand that the story of his higher nature is imbedded in this symbolism will receive intimations concerning a great awakening that is possible, and will know that after the sacred Mystery of Death there is a glorious Mystery of Resurrection."
