Welcome to the Underworld
Here thou shall be weighed for truth
Down in Subterrania
Far from the heat of Ra
Within the womb of Nut he lay
As thou within her bones shall stay
Welcome to thy Judgement Day
Down in the Underworld

Down, down to the Underworld

Heart of sin, come not within
Thy fat shall feed a belly's greed
But come, oh thou, who doth allow
The plume to rest below
The Utchat has secured thy path
Thy place within the Boat of Ra
Descend thou with a willing heart
Down to the Otherworld.

    General CommentB12, get a life. This song references Egyptian mythology, and uses the archaic terms to evoke the feel of the Egyptian Book Of the Dead translations, which use them to make it clear these are spells, rituals, sacred texts.

    "The heat of Ra" Ra, Amon, Amon-ra/re is the sun god, each day he drives the sun across the sky and each night he carries it through the underworld safely.
    "The womb of Nut" Nut, or Nuit, is the Earth mother. Easy reference there.

    "Utchat" Is the eye of Horus symbol.
