CURRENT 93 – So: This Empire Is Nothing / This Shining Shining World

Both songs are taken from Current 93’s album Of Ruine Or Some Blazing Starre The Broken Heart of Man (1993).

So: this Empire is nothing
Before me the green fields are stretched out
The broken body of a cat glows there
And the shimmering flies fall
This Empire is nothing
I said “I guess this isn’t real”
This Empire is not real
I cannot hang words on the silence
Everywhere God’s goldenlight
S. said “you have appeared to me for a reason”
And I said to her:
“Who do You say I am?”
Like one better before

“Consider the lillies of the field”
Consider the carnage and massacre
Consider the love and embraces
Consider the hangingred skies
Consider the pain of your enemy
Consider the hatred of your friend
There, oh there, there is the land
All the musics shall combine
All the daughters are no longer brought low
They are araised
In brightfiregodgiven they rejoice
And those who deny this world
Is the soul of the unbroken one
Lie
This is indeed Paradise
(Come I shall show you where
The stars give birth and sleep)
And all around you is the warm bluegreen breath of heavens
Do not fear
Around you is the vast blueblack space of stars
Do not fear
This is the great ocean
On which the endless waves crash down
God is not dead
There is no death I say
(Come I shall show you where
Dreams go to when they die)
Hurry now: the sun is descending
The shadows wait to play
