"Chemical Wedding" as written by Bruce Dickinson and Roger Ramirez....
How happy is the human soul
Not enslaved by dull control
Left to dream and roam and play
Shed the guilt of former days

Walking on the foggy shore
Watch the waves come rolling home
Through the veil of pale moonlight
My shadow stretches out its hand

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day
Floating in the endless blue
My seed of doubt I leave to you
Let it wither on the ground
Treat it like a plague you found

All my dreams that were outside
In living colour, now alive
And all the lighthouses
Their beams converge to guide me home

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our chemical wedding day

And so we lay, we lay in the same grave

Our Chemical wedding day

    General CommentGreat song, a lot of this was inspired by "The Chymical Wedding" By Christian Rosenkreutz, and the book is a mane tome in the cult, the "Rosicrucians" or "Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross." Check it out at sacredtexts.com or alchemywebsite.com

    Interesting stuff.

    General CommentEvery song off this CD was once upon a time a poem by the great (if I say so) William Blake. Bruce, Adrian and the rest just put in a chorus and added music. I say they definitely do justice to the poems.

    General CommentGreat song. It sounded sad and beautifiul at the same time when I first paid attention to the lyrics.

    General CommentMy mistake, actually not every song off this album was a William Blake poem. Bruce originally made this a concept album about alchemy, until he discovered some poetry by William Blake about a world that he created in his later years.
