Music & lyrics by S. Wongraven

Into the night
My long suffering friend
We'll be reborn again
Right here where everything ends
Face to the sky
A trail of smoke in the air
Pass into emptiness
New life's awaiting you there
Slave to some wretched old
Imagination of yesteryear
All that grows in the skulls
Of the living are flowers of fear
The morning red
A sun-god calling you back
Down through a thousand years
White embers whistle and crack
Await the dawn with her kiss of redemption,
My firebird!
You were the queen of the souls of all men
Before there was the w-o-r-d
The morning new, the morning red,
The fiery promise
Mad swirling smoke wheels round her head
Dedication to the queen of souls, her lost disciples
And when the fire's work is done
Our time to be reborn
By pagan streams
Wind whips the leaves from the trees
And it is revealed to us
That we are dreams within dreams
Born from some wretched
Old imagination of yesteryear
Now all that grows in the skulls of the living
Are flowers of fear

The morning new, the morning red,
The fiery promise
Mad swirling smoke wheels round her head
Dedication to the queen of souls, her lost disciples
And when the fire's work is done
Our time to be reborn
The morning new, the morning red,
The fiery promise
Mad swirling smoke wheels round her head
Dedication to the queen of souls, her lost disciples
And when the fire's work is done
The phoenix now reborn

    Song MeaningThe song speaks of legendary Phoenix bird who, when old, gets burned into ashes by the Sun and then arises again from the ashes, symbolizing life and eternity.

    The night before his rebirth Phoenix awaits the morning when the Sun God burns the her with rays, ending her suffering, that possibly refers to his present irrelevance since there "was the word." Interesting is the use of femininum when refering to the Phoenix ("queen of the souls"), the Sun God ("her kiss of redemption"), probably a reference to matriarchal pagan societies.

    Apparent are the references to Christianity. "The word" is a customary reference to Christian scriptures, "slaves to wretched imagination of yesteryear" thus likely are the Christian religious ethics and cult and finally "all that grows in the skulls of the living are the flowers of fear" to presence of fear of revenge for sins.

    As the dawn comes, Phoenix burns and arises reborn from the ashes.
