Telegram force and ready
I knew this was a big mistake
There's a fine line drawing
My senses together
And I think it's about to break
If I listen close I can hear them singers
Voices in your body coming through on the radio
The Union of the Snake is on the climb
Moving up it's gonna race it's gonna break
Through the borderline
Nightshades on a warning
Give me strength at least give me a light
Give me anything even sympathy
There's a chance you could be right
If I listen close I can hear them singers
Voices in your body coming through on the radio
The Union of the Snake is on the climb
It's gonna race it's gonna break
Gonna move up to the borderline

    General Comment:Simon says the snake is the subconscious mind taking over. A snake is also connected with the devil and with the loss of innocence. There's more connotations behind it too that's just a start.

    General Comment:it's about tanttric sex.

    "The word Tantra means expansion. It is a Sanskrit word, connected to an Eastern Indian spiritual path, Tantra Yoga. The ultimate goal of Tantra Yoga is the Divine Union between the goddess Shakti and god Shiva. Shakti, also called Kundalini, is in the base of the spine. In her form as Kundalini she is seen as a cobra, coiled 3 1 / 2 times, asleep. As Shakti, she is the divine feminine, passionate, strong, an incredibly creative force to be reckoned with.

    The Divine Union takes place as the Kundalini snake starts waking up at the base of the spine, gradually uncoiling herself as she rises up the spine. She pierces each chakra in her undulating movement upward, and meets god Shiva, seen as pure consciousness, at the top of the head. Their merging ends the longing for wholeness.

    The dance of Shakti and Shiva symbolizes the coming together of the feminine and masculine energies inside a person, as well as the creation of the world."

    General Comment:All I know is the video and album cover for Seven and the Ragged Tiger is full of occult, satanic, and masonic symbolism.

    General Comment:that all makes sense. although its fun to think of it about a cult that worships snakes. and takes over people's minds.
    what was that video about by the way...

    General Comment:Like I posted on another D2 song-Simon just writes things down-no real meaning.
    I have no clue what the "Union of the Snake" means-the album "Seven and the Ragged Tiger"-was
    an alliteration of the band&their managers-the seven and the music industryand it's game as the ragged tiger...
