The sun is falling down quietly now And twilight is embracing your soul The shades around you are flickering Like candles in a draughty hallway The doors are wide open to thee Illuminate the darkness of night This is the place of destruction And they approach thou in thy name (Chorus): We are division, we raise and speak of magic We are wardens, no one passeth by unseen We are illusion, we are speaking in tongues We are water and we hail your shadows It is they who guard the daylight And who bring on the nighttime Those who once knew him well They shall come forth by day He will be able to rise again soon The divisions of the great sky Massed choirs repeat: (Chorus) Those who are in this picture now Have the flesh of their own bodies And their souls speak over them Their shadows are united unto them Motionless they starve for sympathy With quavering voices kneeling to pray He hath passed by (Chorus) [And they hear HIS voice]: I hear, I taste waters of your pain, I will remember
Reaching the realm of Sokar The underworld hawk deity Dark pathways he has to negotiate Being dragged on a snake-boat He crieth to them and their places His boat guides him through these pools Lonely is thee who witnesses Falling down in shades of pain (Chorus): We are torture, celebrating darkness We are vengeance and forgiveness We are shelter, hidden from your eyes We are pain, distress and fear Invisible … distress and fear Ye who stands at the blocks of torture Who keep ward of the destruction Those are ancient birds of prey Who destroy and cut in pieces the dead Raping and torturing their own kind They fear the echoes of the past Fetter and bind this figure which is in you So that he may pass you in peace (Chorus): Invisible and distress [And they hear HIS voice]: I know and I bind your burning souls together
He passeth over this dusty road By means of the words of power The utterances of this great deity himself Performs the slaughters of Apep So they shall act for him as Magical protectors in heaven and on earth He crieth out to their lost souls And there are heard the whispers Of those who are shut in this circle Who are like the swathed ones Silently the gates were opened And he leaves this lonely island The names of the ones who kindle fires The god who is the governor of Tuat By means of the fire which is in their mouths Swallowing their flames after he passed by Rowing vigorously back into the waters The sound of their words echoed in his mind We are protector, we scream and shout at thou We are slaughter but we are shut in this circle We are abandoned and we speak your mind [And they hear HIS voice]: I smell, I sense and turn your old fears into anger
They gather together the souls on earth And they make pure the spirits By the hidden figures which are therein Afterwards they swallow their souls They feel the legacy of the king After this great one hath passed by Those who rest here have their arms on earth And their feet and legs in the darkness He crieth to them in their own bodies But they do not depart from their places And then the shades of despair appear The winds cease from their shiny faces Thou sailest over the blood red horizon Thou takest up the place in the shrine The shapes in their bodies praise thee Descend thou into the endless sky To take thy two dark souls Through the magical and wise protectors We are servants, we guide thy greatness to light We are dust, we live in the shades of your words We are sadness and await your return [And they hear HIS voice]: I see, I drink, I breathe, I yell… I see, I drink the golden ale of the morning sun I breathe, I got the strength of a thousand warriors I yell and your hails echo from the world’s end and back I rise, rise, rise and will never fall back into darkness
