Great god of all mankind, of nature and of lust
Of the future yet untold and nations in the dust
From an age of wood and stone, through bronze, iron and steel
In the forests and in the trees and in both man and beast
For a hundred-thousand years and onto the future days
He’s the earth, he’s the sky and he’s the solar blaze
Io Pan! God of death and all creation
Io Pan! God of lust and of nature
Great god of the internet, his web around the earth
In every city in every land, across the whole wide world
Pan, Herne, Cernunnos, Lord of the Sacred Flame
But to the Christian fools Satan is his name
Angel of the Seraphim, they dread him more than death
And they wait for apocalypse, they wait with bated breath
Io Pan! God of death and all creation
Io Pan! God of lust and of nature
Io Pan! God of all that stands before us
Io Pan! God of light and god of darkness
Great god of the wild hunt, speed us to the prey
To the game, to the stars, speed us all the way
Guide for me my axe of flint and let my aim be true
Lord of darkness, Lord of light, lead us to the truth
Great god of the Universe give me my heart’s desire
Give to me the gift of flight and your eternal fire

    General CommentIt's all about Pan. Like "Song to Pan" by I. S. it is very suiting for Pan, one of the many representations of the Horned God of Wicca, and who is in general very important to paganism because he is the god of woodlands and wild creatures, a central theme of paganism. Herne & Cernunnos are other forms of the Horned God, and Satan is basically the demonized form of Pan. When trying to convert pagans Christianity demonized many of the pagan gods. I positively adore this song, homage to Pan.
