A song about the Eighth Caliphate aka Islamic State aka Daesh


Beat the body‘til it’s still
Twist the mind and shape the will
They’ll be faithful
Ever faithful
Spirit ghosting
in the haze
They are the burning
We are the pyre
They are
the preachers
of the lie
We are the witness
Swiftly going blind
Roots of the past
We can never escape
Ruins of the ages
Shadow the day
Here in our towers
Tossed against the tides
in the pleasure of life
In the treasure of life
You still find the night
Take the mother
from the child
Put the father
in the ground
Smash the temples into pebbles
Leave a hole
where there was love


from Napoleonic Blues (11 track album), released January 31, 2017
