Blood.
Song.
Time.
Sing.

Quantum collapse will burn the bridge where many worlds existed.
Now a single slope unfolds
Steep as a mountain, slippery as ice
The ever downward spiral, the inevitable tide
The outlines of a beast, slowly taking form
Pixel by pixel, giving birth to deadly shape

The circle of confusion
The ever shifting focus
Lenses stretching, torn apart

Losing hope is losing mind, losing hope is losing mind
The ever downward spiral, the inevitable tide
Afraid to remember, unable to forget
The time when man and snake and apple met
Waterboarding is our friend, and God is on our side
The ever downward spiral, the inevitable tide

Blood.
Song.
Time.
Sing.

You cheat on your own lover!
You fuck with your own brother!
You fight with one another!
Your cold heart will not recover!




The following lines were in the booklet, but I can't hear them anywhere in the song:
Alarms flaring, tortured silence steel arms dreaming of atomic winds shattered satellites. Holy war on neophytes
Mothers womb will turn to tomb hearts will claw at bony cage time will sing, death will die

    Song FactThe lines from the booklet that aren't in the song are part of the "original" version of the song that Shining played with Enslaved as part of Nine Nights in Nothingness - Glimpses of Downfall (aka the Armageddon Concerto). Many songs featured on the album Blackjazz are directly influenced by that performance and are often reworkings or rerecordings of those songs.
