So…the heart and soul of my lyrics= a couple sections are taken from William Blake quotations, but in a very hiphop kind of way, they are "sampled" so to speak and completely re-worked in the translation- when it’s re-translated BACK into English, it’s totally different of course, more a magical incantation than 18th century English poetry. Most of the songs in this body of work also use the Zohar as a primary text. In case you aren’t familiar, the Zohar is a kabbalistic text very important in Jewish mystical speculation/revelation (Kabbalah). The two primary Blake quotations used are “The sense of touch is the most immediate return to the eternal.” and ” Space and Time are demons separating man from God.” These two quotes form a kind of axis around which all of the other songs revolve. The Kabbalistic stuff penetrates on every level as well…
Mani Malaikat (Angel Semen)
I AM THE LION THAT DEVOURS THE WINGS OF ANGELS THAT DRINKS THE BLOOD OF THE DRAGON THE BLOOD OF THE DRAGON, shape shifting beast REPTILIAN BEAST BIRDS, FISH, AND SERPENTS ENDLESS FORMS, REPTILIAN FORMS ALL OTHER ANIMALS IN CONSTELLATIONs, possessed I CHEW THE BONES OF THE TIGER I BOIL THE SKULL OF THE RAVEN THE BONES AND SINEW OF THE TIGER THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT OF THE FEMALE TIGER I’M WICKED AND WILD, ETERNALLY NAUGHTY OLD AS THE MOON DARK AS THE BLACKEST NIGHT DRINK THE SWEET SEED OF THE ANGELS!

NAMA BERSEMBUNYI (Name Concealed)
Enduring Earth, you carry a thousand keys firm and fragrant, your name is concealed.
You generate darkness and light you merge the left and the right-
While whispering human form You swallow up death and spit out every dream.
MAHKOTA KOTOR (Crown of Filth) I am lost in the desert, wearing a crown of filth From ashes and dust I walk through the night over coldness and clay I sob, I am lost, I lose.
Bone-white moon, why such a clamorous sound? The throbbing hides deep inside my heart, like my innards are twisted up by some kind of magnet
Now thundering, this rock crushing noise- I panic- I am lost in the wilderness without you- I remember your eyes, like diamonds That majestic, heavenly beauty- Oh! How I am lost!
RASA SENTUH (Sense of Touch)
Through elements in combustion the fiery furnace bellows I make a moon from smoke, twist dark storm clouds from crocodiles- In its first moment, by contraction and expansion this universe of illusions was created A restriction of perception- Infinite energy, blind to totality! Flowing flower, you are endless! (The sense of touch is the most immediate return to the eternal)
A spark fell from the divine substance, creating the universe by cosmic division. The original spiritual unity is divided into plurality, the female emanations entangled.
TAK TERBATAS (Without End)
Earthly creation endures, carrying a thousand keys- firm and fragrant, all names concealed- You generate both darkness and light- You merge the left and the right!
Look for the secrets of the universe underneath the tender roots of inner nature- the primordial nature- the holy nature- the spirits of nature- the world of all things unseen.
Space and time are demons separating man from God- The universe a vast prison, we are enslaved by psychic Law- Our self awareness in stupid sleep.
Each one of us has a spark inside- fallen from substance Divine Not by faith nor obedience to doctrine- It is the sense of touch that is the most immediate return to the eternal.
You are endless, flowing forever You are a flower of eternal energy.
CAHAYA BAHAYA (Dangerous Light)
We arrive at a crossroads- the intersection of Eros and Spirit. We dive into the danger of disaster and crazy fire. I really dig the forbidden fruit! So let’s burn the insurance- in flaming fire! You’re a fertile crescent, you’re a flying horse! I am a rainbow, and I am also on fire! Fierce like an iron stone, literally a magnet! Together we dive deep inside the depths of wetness and heat- Together, from a flaming rainbow we dive deep into a dangerous light
IBLIS ATAS IBLIS (Demons upon Demons)
Setiap malaikat dan iblis menciptakan badan batin tanpa bergerak. Satu yang bodoh, seseorang tanpa kesadaran, meniup nafas kehidupan di mukanya… Tubuhnya bangun dari lempung diam. Gerakan menambah kekuatan, itu yang merupakan terang. Perluasan kekal yang terik terang. Siapa adalah penggoda? Hanya mencicipi buah. Sudah diberikan dari Tuhan kelamin dan rohani.
Hal ini sudah diberikan. sudah milik Engkau. Hal ini sudah menjadi milik engkau. Dapat merasakannya. DIBERIKAN dari malaikat dan singa
Each angel and the devil created the inner body without moving. One is stupid, someone without consciousness, blew the breath of life in the face … His body was built from silent clay- Adding strength to the movement, it is bright. Expansion of the blazing light of eternity. Who is the tempter? Just taste the fruit- given from the God of sex and Spirit.
This is already provided, it already belongs to you. This already belongs to you. Given to you by angels and lions, you can feel it.
BIANGLALA (Rainbow of Fire)
berombak gelombang cahaya perubahan perempuan. Engkau malaikat? Teriak terik pembakaran suaraku suaraku tenggorokku teriak terik terang teramat otot dan urat dan tulang teramat terik, terang benderang seribu juta miliar pecahan matahari percikannya cahaya pecahannya cahaya mengejawantahkan diri sebagai dewa di tulang dilahap oleh api bianglala yang membersih sucikan. aku dikonsumsi oleh api, api api api bianglala Di dunia yang fana dari bayang kurasakan cinta Siapa rasakan cinta? Nada tambahan merupakan kecintaan terang. Suaraku pembakaran segera selama lamanya. rasul dari bisikan rasi. Berdasarkan baru limunan… purbakala ke segera
Vibrating waves pulsating bright emanation of intuition- You are an angel? I shout with a blazing flame- my voice my throat on fire Roaring resonance the blazing lights muscles and tendons and bones extremely hot, bright- a thousand million billion floating suns- sparks of light- subtle light fractions- manifest themselves as gods in the bone- devoured by the fire that cleans, a purifying rainbow.of fire. I was consumed by fire, fire fire fire rainbow- In the dark fleeting world of shadows I feel the love Who feels the love? Overtones making love with the light- Cosmic voices blaze eternal- Messengers from the whisperings of constellations- Foundation firm in the Invisible New- From antiquity to the immediate to the eternal- I am a rainbow on fire.
KERASUKAN (Possessed by Spirits)
tabrakan dari visi dan suara mengalir itu dari muara melebur kiri kanan saya pasang surut (flux and flow) saya menghutani dari mulut saya membuaya dari sulur kebinalan bianglala batin kemuluran dari dewa kelamin
suaraku tiba di tenggorok saya membulan dari merokok membuat semesta khayalan pembakaran dari persepsi kerasukan rasi tenaga tak terbatas buta ke totalitas bunga mengalir engkau tak terbatas
dari akar aku, saya mengawan Aku mabuk dari madu dewa jiwa tulang dan jiwa arwah Tulang dari tulangku kerangka dari kepala
Kerakusan aku kerasukan Terbuat binatang yang membuat binasa merasakan aku! aku yang mengalir kenikmatan- Penciptaan terbuat segala nafas kehidupan gelombang nafas kehidupan berdebar nafas kehidupan manis nafas kehidupan bergetar getaran kehidupan manis kemanisan kehidupan segala
hal ini maksud sudah diberikan.
(The tree of life turned upside down) Voice and Vision in collision flowing out of the mouth of the river fusing left and right I flux and flow I create forests through my mouth Make crocodiles from vines Disobedience is the inner rainbow- stretching out the sex god- Elongation of the sound-
My voice comes through the throat I make the moon from smoke and a universe of imagination a combustion of perception constellations in possession unlimited power blind to the totality eternal energy you are without limit, eternal energy
From the root of me, I climb into the sky I was drunk from god-honey bone and soul Bone of my bones Crown of the skull of the head
I am possessed with appetite Made of animals that destroy Feel me! I am pleasure-flowing Creation is made complete, By cresting waves of the breath of life, pounding waves of the breath of life, sweet breath of life, vibrating breath of life, vibration sweet life all the sweetness of life
This intention has been given- by white fire on black fire on white fire we chew the meat through darkness of night.
“Most of the students, in other words, were liberals, broadly defined. They had imbibed some of the defining values of American Jewish political culture: a belief in open debate, a skepticism about military force, a commitment to human rights. And in their innocence, they did not realize that they were supposed to shed those values when it came to Israel. The only kind of Zionism they found attractive was a Zionism that recognized Palestinians as deserving of dignity and capable of peace, and they were quite willing to condemn an Israeli government that did not share those beliefs. Luntz did not grasp the irony. The only kind of Zionism they found attractive was the kind that the American Jewish establishment has been working against for most of their lives.”—
