All but the truth - forget
And from this union cup
We will drink wine tonight

Qiyamat qiyamat a tawil'
Qiyamat qiyamat insan al kamel

Haqiqat itself is drunk
So drinks the Hidden Imam

Pride of the peacock angel
Under the feather veils

Dark tresses under the black light

    General CommentThis song is about the coming of the Qiyamat who ushers in an age of earthly hedonism.

    General Comment'Black light' could possibly refer to "And the moon is buried in darkness. And the sun and moon are joined together." which is an extract of the Islamic interpretation of 'Qiyamat', or Judgement Day.

    General Comment"Peacock angel" probably refers to Melek Taus, the holy figure in the non-Muslim Kurdish Yazidi religion.

    General CommentMaxthepimp, I agree wholeheartedly!

    This is my favorite song on Disco Volante. I googled the translation and found that bunglefever.com has a faq section that gives a great explanation of what could be the meaning. The person who explains it also points out a reference.
