From the album, "Napoleonic Blues". A song inspired by lines from Virgil extrapolate into the Napoleonic Wars and the modern crisis of the Kali Yuga.


Whom the gods
Wish to curse
They make mad
Putting angels in the heads
of the bad
and demons
in the hearts
of the sad
Whom the gods Wish to curse
They betray
Laden with the weight of the world
Hollow to the echo of pain
Step onto the edge
Open your eyes
to the depths
to the depths
Where the dancer
Becomes the dance
Where the liar
Becomes the lie
Where the light
Becomes the fire
The fire of desire
Where the man
Becomes the mask
Where the future
Becomes the past
Where the famed
Become the damned
This is where the end begins
Deep in the night within
Deep down
you’ll never win
Deep in
the deepest rift
Where you can only drift
Who should seek
to love forever
Beware the threat of the never
the daggers
in your heart
Who should seek
to live by truth
Be wary
of the burden of proof
That the power
makes to veil


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