Lyrics

 

Jaws of Sobek

[Instrumental]

I Believe

I believe…in me
I believe…in you
I believe…in us
I believe…in them

The Tadpole’s Prayer (Heqet)

Praise be to Heqet
O sprouter of seed
Mother of mothers
Whose guidance we need

Amphibious Goddess
Tender midwife
Grant every child
A full happy life

Such a treacherous path
From Duat to Earth
But our Lady Heqet
Assures a safe birth

Peacock King (Tawusê Melek)

All hail the Peacock King
The first of seven angels, sing
Custodian of all this world
The Earth is Your entrusted pearl

You refused to worship man
Devoted to Your Maker’s plan
And though You are by men maligned
You rule this cosmos for all time

O guiding light of Sheikh Adi
Your solar feathers flying free
Help us all to understand
This wayward beast, the ape called man

Turn to the Sun

Pray to the Son

Naqada

[Instrumental]

Lady of the Sycamore Tree

Lady of life
Queen of the sky
Milk cow of heaven
Goddess on high

When my time is done
Help me reach the Sun
Please welcome me
To Your Sycamore Tree

Oooh
What more can one ask for?
Oooh
Dining with Hathor

Syzygy

One dark night, a friend and me
We met alone, just him and me
We called upon Him, that we might see
And learn our true identities

Candles aglow, all black and red
Sacred incantations said
Image of the God with equine head
Hymns to the One all serpents dread

I AM THE HURRICANE INSIDE YOU
YOU ARE THE COMPASSION IN ME
WE’RE HEAVY METAL THUNDER
WE ARE IN SYZYGY

(Chanting: Dua Set! Dua Set!)

Many hours later, weary from prayer
We blew out the candles and got some air
We heard sound of things that were not there
And knew it was true, we were under His care

Years gone by, and we’re still here
Despite all the haters who reacted in fear
Through thick and thin, we persevere
We still walk with Set, we still hold Him dear

Imhotep

[Instrumental]

Theme For a Different Jackal

When our bodies die
There is no goodbye
Souls and spirits fly
On the Other Side

Dark terrors abound
But there is a Hound
Who is always there
To help us take care

When I was a child
Small meek and mild
You captured my heart
And that was the start

Set Happens

It really doesn’t matter
What other religions think
Whether they accept Him or not
Set Happens
