lyrics

Love & Madness

Love & Madness (Love & Madness)
Love & Madness (Love & Madness)
Love & Madness – that’s what we live for!

He’s been to the mountain, drowned in the Sea,
Been to the inner penitentiary,
Put his shoulder to the wheel in England’s demonic mills.
Cut through the kingdom & the pyramid stone,
Cut through the flesh & he cut through the bone,
And he grew older than ancient in Albion’s angelic hills.

He’s carried a goddess made of feather & moon,
He’s carried some cross & he’s carried a tune.
Everybody knew him as one who went barefoot in the snow.
He’s carried the stigma – one of air & smoke,
He’s carried the battalion & he’s carried the joke –
Aphrodite threw him - they all said it was the highlight of the show!

When he was a boy, in Inverness,
He saw that even the clouds possessed Consciousness,
And still he carries that sweet wound to this very day.
Possessed as he is of this inner sight
He wonders how yon minotaurs make it through the night,
Clingin’ to trinkets & laws – I mean, what can ya say?

His eyes were blessed & spinnin’ in spires,
His eyes, it’s been said, became raging fires
When he saw her on the balcony brushin’ down her flaxen hair!
He was struck down by the sound of her lyre,
He heard her voice dancin’ through those wires,
And he was nailed to the sky & from that height he could only stare!
