This is why I was put into this sate of mind really, only because the cross had worked. The cross, as a thing, meant nothing to me. I did it because I had seen horror films, and… just anything really that might have worked.

I had experienced a sense of evil at that point — I don't know how much of this was going on inside my head and how much was actually happening, but it was an experience I could not forget and was the starting point for a song about the struggle between good and evil. Gabriel has also been quoted by some as saying he felt he was "led" to the various sources he used in putting together the lyrics for the song.

Ron Hubbard's Scientology, or Aleister Crowley's Scientific Illuminism, the latter of which was a huge influence on the cult-like theories combining science and magic in the writings of Timothy Leary, Robert Anton Wilson, and Antero Ali. In the programme we are told that the two lovers come across a town with two characers — the other is a Farmer. Since the Farmer is mentioned in the lyrics, it is assumed that the Fireman is the G.

Although we are not told specifically what the Fire is, we can also make the assumption that it is probably not good, as fire has a habit of burning and destroying things. So, in broad terms, the Farm is the force of nuturing and caring and helping things to grow, and the Fire is the opposite force. This Farm can be connected to the idea of Willow Farm, later in the song. The G. The lyrics speak of a "spoonful of miracle. We are told that his claims are actually a lie, and that he is fooling everyone.

This makes him a False Prophet of Peace. The very fact that he is claiming to offer a sanctuary that will last forever guaranteed in an uncertain world where nothing can really be guaranteed is, in itself impossible for any man. This doesn't stop a lot of businesses from having a similar approach… The children though, hand-in-hand and gland-in-gland denoting sexual conjoining? A petty falsehood; a fib. Silly pretentious speech or writing; twaddle. Is this the true way of fighting fire? Compare with the character in the song Stagnation who kneels down to drink some water that has hopefully not been contaminated by nuclear destruction.

Also, compare with the lyrics of Gabriel's later solo song "San Jacinto", where the indian pledges to continue to drink from the stream. The farmer tends his garden with water that is clear, while the G. Compare with modern business practices. Could they be your average every-day generation of children exposed to advertising and music, who want to believe in something? The symbol of the snake is usually connected to the serpent in the Garden of Eden who tempted Eve to eat the Apple from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

This snake is apparently being rocked — which could mean as in a gently swaying motion to aid in sleep or as in a rock band pacifying it's listeners. Cobras are supposed to be charmed by the flute music that "soothes the savage beast". Also, compare Jim Morrison of the Doors' "ride the snake" motif. Is it the children of every generation that continues to keep the snake snug and warm? Akhenaten's chief wife was Nefertiti, made world-famous by the discovery of her exquisitely moulded and painted bust, now displayed in the Altes Museum of Berlin.

Ikhnaton has been called by historian "the first individual in history", as well as the first monotheist, first scientist, and first romantic. On the contrary, Nicholas Reeves in his book Akhenaten: Egypt's False Prophet portrays a totally different image of Pharaoh, seeing his religious reformations as mere attempts for centralizing power and solidify his role as "divine monarch".

Akhenaten is known to have initiated at least one campaign into Nubia Ikhnaton's fanaticism was his undoing. He defaced every monument carved with the name of Amon, previously the greatest god of Egypt. The Aten cult died with Ikhnaton because the sentiments of the priesthood and the people were outraged by his destruction of their traditions and by his terror-filled reign. Compare Ikhnaton's reign to the actions of the Guaranteed Eternal Sanctuary Man, and ask why he would call forth Ikhnaton and his "merry" band of warriors to attack all those who aren't under the sway of his religion.?

Compare with modern Church practices. It also implies that the followers of the G. Compare this to the current practice in medicine, where instead of costing a fortune in insurance to have regular visits to a psycho-analyst, the chemical companies make it cheaper to simply hand out prozac or similar antidepressants. Compare with modern theories of Social Security, which competely opposite of the thing which it claims to do, predict a rather dire future for upcoming generations. This is a moral tale in which the proud and unfeeling Narcissus is punished by the gods for having spurned all his female pursuers.

It is thought to have been intended as a cautionary tale addressed to young men. Until recently, the only source for this version was a segment in Pausanias 9. A very similar account was discovered among the Oxyrhynchus papyri in , an account that predates Ovid's version by at least fifty years. In this story, Ameinias, a young man, loved Narcissus but was scorned.

As a way of rebuffing Ameinias, Narcissus gave him a sword, which Ameinias used to kill himself on Narcissus' doorstep; he prayed to Nemesis that Narcissus would one day know the pain of unrequited love. This curse was fulfilled when Narcissus became entranced by his own reflection in a pool. He only realized that it was his reflection after trying to kiss it. As he leaned forward to look at himself in the pool of water, he fell in and drowned.

In the tale told by Ovid, Echo, a nymph, falls in love with a vain youth named Narcissus, who was the son of the blue Nymph Leirope of Thespia.

Night Watch

The river god Cephisus had once encircled Leirope with the windings of his streams, and thus trapping her, had seduced the nymph. Concerned about the baby's welfare, Leirope went to consult the prophet Teiresias regarding her son's future. Teiresias told the nymph that Narcissus "would live to a ripe old age, as long as he never knew himself. When Narcissus finally heard footsteps and shouted "Who's there? He pulled away from the nymph and vainly told her to leave him alone. Narcissus left Echo heartbroken and she spent the rest of her life in lonely glens, pining away for the love she never knew, until only her voice remained.

Eventually he became thirsty and went to drink from a stream. As he saw his reflection, he fell in love with it, not knowing that it was him. As he bent down to kiss it, it seemed to "run away" and he was heart broken. He grew thirstier but he wouldn't touch the water for fear of damaging his reflection, so he eventually died of thirst and self love, staring at his own reflection.

In pity the gods changed Narcissus into a lovely flower bending its head over…The narcissus flower grew where he died. Everyone lies here. Is it because false things transmute into true things and back again? The fox on the rocks is here, with a rather obscure german spelling to have it match the spelling of rocks — another transformation. The Musical Box is mentioned, and in the lyrics of that song "… the Nurse will tell you lies, of a Kingdom beyond the Skies".

It's the house where I imagined the story of 'Musical Box' taking place, a big Victorian manor with wood paneling, a billiard room, and croquet lawn. I used to look at the dragonflies — butterflies, flutterbies, gutterflies! They used to fly around the river on the farm and now, fifteen years later, they have all dissapeared, which is sad. The line "happy as geese" seems to be connected with note Having been in this place all along, and being a seed under the soil waiting for Spring to germinate, it would appear that the soil is some kind of purgatory.

We are told in the programme that it is specifically the apocalypse of St. John which is happening in full progress that the lovers return to, seeing the process anew, perhaps, after going through the transformational changes in Willow Farm, and becoming seeds. What is the nature of these seeds? Into what will they grow? That's nine eighth notes every measure.

Note that "the delicious talents of Gabble Rachet" is replaced on the programme by "the delicious talents of wild geese". Under the entry for Gabriel's Hounds it says:. Wild geese. The noise of geese in flight is like that of a pack of hounds in full cry. The legend is that they are the sould of unbaptized children wandering through the air till the Day of Judgement.

Therefore the value of the letter F would be 6. He said this was part of trying to illustrate the mixing of the pagan and christian worlds. The Pied Piper of Hamelin' is a legend about the abduction of many children from the town of Hamelin Hameln , Germany. In , while the town of Hamelin was suffering from a rat infestation, a man dressed in pied garments appeared, claiming to be a rat-catcher. He promised the townsmen a solution for their problem with the rats.

The townsmen in turn promised to pay him for the removal of the rats. The man accepted, and thus played a musical pipe to lure the rats with a song into the Weser River, where all of them drowned. Despite his success, the people reneged on their promise and refused to pay the rat-catcher. The man left the town angrily, but returned some time later, seeking revenge. On St. John's Day while the inhabitants were in church, he played his pipe again, this time attracting the children of Hamelin.

One hundred and thirty boys and girls followed him out of the town, where they were lured into a cave and never seen again. Depending on the version, at most two children remained behind one of whom was lame and could not follow quickly enough, the other one was deaf and followed the other children out of curiosity who informed the villagers of what had happened when they came out of the church.

Some researchers believe that the tale has inspired the common English phrase "pay the piper", although others disagree. To "pay the piper" means to face the inevitable consequences of one's actions, possibly alluding to the story where the villagers broke their promise to pay the Piper for his assistance in ridding the town of the rats.

The phrase sometimes refers to a financial transaction but often does not. Compare this to the music industry attempting to sell records to the youth, and the differences between "underground" music and mainstream music.

Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a Human s ; and the number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six — — To be getting the marrow out of someone's backbone would be to make them weaker.

The seven seals is a concept of Christian eschatology, which comes from the Book of Revelation in the Christian Bible, where a book with seven seals is described in Revelation The seven seals are opened by The Lamb presumably Jesus , one by one. Each opening of a seal is followed by some event or series of events. When each of the first four seals are opened, a horse and its rider appear and are described.

The opening of the fifth seal is followed by a vision of those that were "slain for the word of God" Revelation When the sixth seal is opened, there is a "great earthquake," and signs appear in heaven. Revelation Also, , servants of God are "sealed … in their foreheads" in Revelation 7. When the seventh seal seal is opened, seven angels with trumpets begin to sound, one by one. The events of the seventh seal are further subdivided by the events following each angel sounding their trumpet.

This seal is opened in Revelation 8, and the seventh angel does not sound until Revelation The seven trumpets in Supper's Ready appear to be playing rock-and-roll and causing quite a sensation…. According to Iamblichus, Pythagoras once said that "number is the ruler of forms and ideas and the cause of gods and demons. Is there really no accounting for taste? Also in The Sword of Shannara.
