About this track:
///The fine art of alchemy. Behold the withering of the flesh; pronounce the form of the soul, which manifests itself as a God.///

lyrics

Visita Interiora Terrae Rectificando Invenies Occultum Lapidem

Solve, coagula! By vitriol shown,
The Tincture, the Elixir, and the Stone.

Trismegistus, lunar Thoth
Advocate the merge
In so splendourous motion trot
And balance on the verge

Bless with salt the wounds of strife
Rub sulphur on our hearts
Guide us to eternal life
Teach us the lost arts!

Mercury
Soft voiced visions of misery
Cloud my mind when I see seven shining seraphs
Wailing the symphony of immortality

Nigredo, into singular matter
Choke out every life
That Albedo purifies
And Citrinas will revive

Halted at the perimeter of the sensical life
As far as the shackles of humanity reach
a final intervention of the earthbound mind

Across the mystic bar
That is set for wrath and weeping
Against the children of earth.
But ye in singing and sleeping
Shall pass in measure and mirth!

Ouroboros behold;
The withering of the flesh
Pronounce the form of the soul
That manifests itself as a God!
