lyrics

Solar sulphur
Cracks in the surface
Fertilizing the stone
Sulphur Solis
Endless circle
Fire-spewing serpent
Suicidal coiling
Hissing with hate
Devouring his own tail
Absorbed by the fire
Begotten by itself
The tail-eater completely disappears
Solar sulphur blazes and tinges
The conquest of the mercurial serpent
Returning to an immaculate condition
Ready for solar rebirth
To start all over again
lacking not the strongest of venom
Awaking in the vast forest
Seeing the first rays of the sun
Its bright fire
Through trees and bones
Scatter abroad your poison
Fly upward so fiercely
Plumed all in gold
Hovering on wings outspread
Up to the high gods' halls
Empty and mourning men
No living creature shall stand before me
Even the basilisk not equal
Al my veins and colours perceived
Down like the lightning, terrible and fast
Caught in the vortex
Entombed in the sphere of flame
Burning in a furnace blast
Flesh melting
Needles through my soul
Absorbed by the fire
Begotten by itself
The tail-eater completely disappears
Solar sulphur blazes and tinges
The conquest of the mercurial serpent
Returning to an immaculate condition
Ready for solar rebirth
To start all over again
Searing me through
In the hour of my death
I will not pray, I will accept
Thou hast reached purgatory
Embrace this sweet cleansing
My venom becoming the greatest medicine
Consuming my own venom
Devour my poisonous tail
Cosmic unconsciousness
To be reborn and die forever
Absorbed by the fire
Begotten by itself
The tail-eater completely disappears
Solar sulphur blazes and tinges
The conquest of the mercurial serpent
Returning to an immaculate condition
Ready for solar rebirth
To start all over again
Searing me through
In the hour of my death
I will not pray, I will accept
Thou hast reached purgatory
Embrace this sweet cleansing
My venom becoming the greatest medicine
Consuming my own venom
Devour my poisonous tail
Cosmic unconsciousness
To be reborn and die forever
