Paroles

Eastern shores, they seem so full of promise
Minarets, they lacerate the skyline
Opposing seas will drift into the harbour
Girls, they die with screams of Alexander

You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
You’ll only kneel at the…

Balthazar consults his book of numbers
Buildings jangle with the children’s laughter
Mothers, they gather eyes of distant features
A woman’s face dissolves, I hear her screeches

You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
You’ll only kneel at the Fire God

Poet dies, stabbed with the knife of words
Young girl marries with bouquet of letters
One life explodes and slides into the sea
The city lies buried beneath the curses

You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
You’ll only kneel at the Fire God
