Current 93 - Pomegranate lyrics

But meanwhile there was a ghost in my life
And the Pomegranate Blues descended
Heard voices of Planets following
Satellites in death's purple paws
Mixed the drains by golden dragon fever
Shapur II Lord of Dust
In the battefields of precrescent rain
The putti rejoice and Julian is unhorsed
Speared and smeared in the desert
First and last just in dust
Smashed as Athena
As dead as Serapis misted in Babylon
The slaughter arose as Stars
Stars dragged blood and souls
Up to the Heavens
The skies filled with flies
The bird of locust flowers
Screams and wheels at the ape
Froth and fear in the nostrils of the steeds
Steering bloodhurds to the mountain fame
The hip killers are burning like devil
The trip of the light burned bright
The eyes of the blind open like whirlwinds
The breastplate of GraceFace
The lamp pours light into the children's mouths
Open the slit of the conspiracy
And go further into the perfect peace
Of the perfect world envisioned by
The Murderer
The First Dead
The First Killer
The First Framer
The Farmer in Sodom
Cattle Reaper
A thought to spear the care
Enough is too late
The sky took lies from me
Turned my head to smoke
Rising over the near East
With lips tasted of peace
And Kingdoms far within
The Queendom the bells
And grave faces hieratic
Under the Moon
Its waves and light
Lifting the dead from under dust
Choked unmore moved
Unquick and lithe
Lifting their hearts like the SunFlower
Drank HoneySuckle Æons
And toasted toys goodnight
But around the back
Of the bars of the City of God
The Night squeals and prays entrance
Attendance for the march
The Rainbow Children were trademarked
And branded on their skulls
The triple eating curve
Marked! Marked!
Hey hey horror hail hail
Grey bloody dawn down dawns
Get back black crack Moon
Slip back slide ded red Moon
