Semper Amemus

Oiy – more language I probably mangled. Semper fidelis Pari passu Amor vincit omnia Semper amemus Semper fidelis En bien aimer Pari passu Por tous jours Amor vincit omnia Mon coeur est a vous Semper amemus Je t’aime Pari passu Je t’aime mon amour Amor vincit omnia Joie sans fin Semper amemus Semper fidelis Semper amemus Semper fidelis Joie sans fin Mon couer est a vous mon amour Semper amemus Semper amemus Semper amemus Mon amour, joie sans fin Je t’aime Je t’aime Je t’aime

Alto to Mezzo – Soprano

I’m not sure what to make of this, in retrospect. I have no real memory of it, so am not sure of the intent. Gloria in excelsis Dei Sed libera nos a malo liquid fire flowing in my veins burning with every thought of you your touch – ice water to quench my thirst I burn for you le feu liquide entrant dans mes veines brËšlant avec chaque pensÈe de vous votre contact – glacez l’eau pour Èteindre ma soif que je brËšle pour vous caught halfway between a snarl and a sob the pendelum must swing both ways, indifference to obsession before it finds its balance how do I tell you I love you in a complete innocuous way and I am beyond wishing for your touch I am beyond wishing for the feel of your lips touching mine I am beyond wishing for my own happy ending I

Nos In Temptation

I cringe at how awful this Latin probably is… the idea was a Gregorian chant/EBM style song. sic ergo vos orabitis Pater noster qui in caelis es sanctificetur nomen tuum veniat regnum tuum fiat voluntas tua sicut in caelo et in terra panem nostrum supersubstantialem da nobis hodie et dimitte nobis debita nostra sicut et nos dimisimus debitoribus nostris et ne inducas nos in temptationem sed libera nos a malo if I go, will you go? if you go, will I follow? if you go, will I go? if I go, will you follow? et ne inducas nos in temptationem et ne inducas nos in temptationem et ne inducas nos in temptationem sed libera nos a malo I lead you not into temptation but in to love And we will walk protected from the shadows of death Delivered not from evil but from a-loneliness For you are my love, you

Lucifer’s Fall

Another of those “poem? lyric? who cares” bits that was written as one, worked into the other… I like the sentiment. I’m noticing one person was the inspiration for a lot of these, even though we were simply friends with a lot of emotional energy. I should probably note that most of this batch (those published to this blog on July 10 2006) is rough-written; no edits. Written once, smoothed out for basic issues, then set aside and left alone. For much longer than intended, as it turned out… I saw the desire burning in your eyes It was hard to miss and harder still to resist But I had to resist The house of cards fell Like they always fall We were only slightly oblivious Could Lucifer have missed signs so obvious We were so insular Caught unaware by a little late night infidelity The earthquakes from a moments

Dark Reality

A snippet of something that was being worked into a song – I like this bit; the rest I could do without. What’s your religion Religion and spirituality Crookedness and truth, an actual axis of evil Samsara, Nirvana, the fading of passion Evil is done by oneself Nirvana and the everyday world Freeze the frame and join the search for Jesus today Or become the deathless way Don’t be heedless Two kinds of suffering running into reality People are unknowing Worship those worthy of worship
