Demo #2

1. Borellus

Essential Salts of animals may
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure

Unhappy is he to whom
the memories of childhood
Bring only fear and sadness
Old years of play
Wretched is he who looks back upon lone hours
In vast and dismal chambers
With brown hangings
And maddening rows of antique books

Watch them in twilight groves
Oh in twilight groves
Oh in twilight groves

By method from the essential salts
of humane dust
A philosopher may call up the shape
of any dead ancestor
From the dust where into his body has been
Incinerated incinerated incinerated

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child
In every new born child

Essential Salts of animals may
Be so prepared and preserved
That an ingenious man
May have the whole Ark of Noah in his own
Study and raise the fine shape of an animal
Out of its ashes at his pleasure

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned, he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child

You're under pressure baby
Christ has returned, he's returning
In every new born child
In every new born child

Song Info
From HIM II Demo which was recorded in the Finnish club "Lepakko" ("bat") in 1995. There are no copies released.
Borellus (Giovanni Alfonso Borelli) was a medieval Italian writer, alchemist and author of books about occultism and necromancy. Borellus is mentioned in the stories of Lovecraft: "The Evil Clergyman" and "The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward."
However, the last story begins with the first verse of the song HIM "Borellus".
The story is about dead people and other dark creatures awaken.
One of Linde's favourite songs.


2. Serpent Ride

Upon the wings of a dream
She rides
Close she comes to me
Fills me with light
Towards the dark side of the moon
We fly
She sings me a tune
Away through the silver starlight

I don't want to wake up this time
I'm alive on this serpent ride

In the grace of our love
We writhe in pain
Further into this solar fog
Mesmerised
A drop of her blood tastes like wine
I answer her call with a rhyme

That is not death which can eternal lie
Yet with strange aeons death may die

In your eyes lies the world where I don't wanna go
Said you've changed but I don't believe in miracles
Since you conquered my heart we've never been apart
One day we'll close our eyes open them again
And discover each other

So I open up my eyes
She greets me with a smile
From her wrists flows wine

3. The Phantom Gate

Watch out for the kiss

There are things you should know
Distance between us grow
You're holding on strong
Oh how easy it would be to let go

It's taking you far too long
You did not look at the fire
It's taking you far too long
And it has become our funeral pyre
I spread my wings for you
Heaven, let your gate be open
I'll bless you with venomous kisses
And death in its own beauty

Listen to my heart, to my
Listen to my heart, to my

I'm losing my faith in you
You don't want it to be true
There's nothing you can do
There's nothing you can do

I've lost my faith in you
You did not look at the fire
I've lost my faith, it's true
And it has become our funeral pyre

I spread my wings for you
Heaven let your gate be open
I'll bless you with venomous kisses
My love in its own cruelty

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting

Listen to my heart to hear it sing
A song of returning to heaven
Feel my poison sting
