Inhumite
(Fr. M∴M∴)

INHUMITE is the second song from the CORRESPONDENCES sequence—a concept album following the metaphysical transformation of protagonist Vriel during the apparent death of the Solar System.

The cycle draws on esoteric subjects and practices (Egyptian and Classical myth, Qabalah, Hermetic Magick, Tarot, and Astrology), creating a paracosm with its own internal logic, mythology, and symbolism.

Channeling gothic romanticism, dark fantasy, and science fiction (in the vein of James O'Barr, Neil Gaiman, and Arthur C. Clarke), CORRESPONDENCES is an occult allegory framed as an Oratorio.

lyrics

Shut me in
Out of sight and forgotten
My body's not rotten
But some might say my mind is

Bite and claw at the ceiling
Distraught
Caught and reeling
From what I think is happening

So I
Take the throne
On my own
I will rule
Absolutely nothing

In my hole
I am King
I don't feel a single thing

"Don't keep so silent—
I know you're in there..."

Air is thinning
Head is swimming
Please don't leave me here

I'M NOT DEAD YET

This matter lies closed
With a concrete lid
I will always be beneath you
Digging
Nails bleeding
Just to find out where you hid
Locked up inside
All dried up

[Interlude]

Earth's become a mausoleum
I try not to remember

LEST WE FORGET

This matter lies closed
With a concrete lid
I will always be beneath you
Digging
Nails bleeding
Just to find out where you hid

Cover your eyes
DENY ME

[Interlude]

The Passion is internalised
Our Sacrifice complete
Our fragile lives are petrified
Roofed over by concrete
As Adepts glady tell you
And the neophytes all know
Be Patient and
Be Silent
As Above So Below

1986
'Til we first met

This matter lies closed
With a concrete lid
I will always be beneath you
Latent
And waiting
'Til I find out where you hid
Say 'Goodbye'
Just remember

I'M
NOT
DEAD
YET

No,
I'm not dead yet.

.

In my hole
I am King
I don't feel a single thing
