"Sadeness" as written by M.c. Curly, Frank Peter and David Fairstein....
Procedamus in pace
In nomine Christi, Amen

Cum angelis et pueris
Fideles inveniamur

Attollite portas, principes, vestras
Et elevamini, portae aeternales
Et introibit rex gloriae
Qius est iste Rex glorie?

Sade, dis-moi
Sade, donne-moi

Procedamus in pace
In nomine Christi, Amen

Sade, dis-moi
Qu'est-ce que tu vas chercher?
Le bien par le mal
La vertu par le vice
Sade, dis-moi, pourquoi l'évangile a du mal?
Quelle est ta religion, où sont tes fidèles?
Si tu es contre Dieu, tu es contre l'Homme

Sade, es-tu diabolique ou divin?

Sade, dis-moi
Hosanna

Sade, donne-moi
Hosanna

Sade, dis-moi
Hosanna

Sade, donne-moi
Hosanna
In nomine Christi, Amen

    General CommentThis song offers an interesting contrast of languages - the sacred language of the church, Latin, and the sensual French. This song is not only about de Sade, but about love and sex, the soul and the flesh. It offers a view into the period of time De Sade lived in, when sexuality was considered an affront to God, since the Church believed it denied the soul.

    De Sade took that stance to the extreme, denying anything higher than sexual pleasure as false. So basically this song contrasts the strict, spiritual world of the Church and the debauched, amoral world of de Sade.

    General CommentThe voice comes from far away,
    He does not understand what is being said.

    But the tone of it was clear, beautiful, and pure.
    Like shimmering fibers of light, the sound seduced him.

    He had never experienced such a sense of warmth.
    No sound had ever touched him as this one had.

    Was it day or nights? Over and over the same voices,
    They banded together upon a floating rhythm to create a choir.
    The lights within him began to move, the warmth roamed - always faster,
    It took possession of him - everything became one.
    Was that God?

    The shafts of lights, the heat and the sound meld together, "pass the
    frontiers," a voice calls to him, “your journey in life begins".

    Only now he notices that no one spoke,
    Rather it was he himself.

    Solve the enigma...

    General CommentThe "religious" text was sampled by Enigma from a recording by the Hilliard Ensemble. It's a recording of a religious hymn, "Attollite portas," which is, indeed, a religious hymn. I seem to recall hearing in an interview with one of the singers of the Hilliard Ensemble that they went to court with Enigma over this. What Enigma was trying to say, is, of course, anybody's guess.
