All Hallow’s Eve

Standard

We remember the dead, the hallows, martyrs, and all of our beloved departed. Happy All Hallow’s Eve.

‘On route home after a night’s drinking, Jack encounters the Devil who tricks him into climbing a tree. A quick-thinking Jack etches the sign of the cross into the bark, thus trapping the Devil. Jack strikes a bargain that Satan can never claim his soul. After a life of sin, drink, and mendacity, Jack is refused entry to heaven when he dies. Keeping his promise, the Devil refuses to let Jack into hell and throws a live coal straight from the fires of hell at him. It was a cold night, so Jack places the coal in a hollowed out turnip to stop it from going out, since which time Jack and his lantern have been roaming looking for a place to rest.’

“Just paint your face” the shadows smile
Slipping me away from you
“Oh it doesn’t matter how you hide
Find you if we’re wanting to…’

Magic And Loss (The Summation)

They say no one person can do it all
But you want to in your head
But you can’t be Shakespeare and you can’t be Joyce
So what is left instead

You’re stuck with yourself and a rage that can hurt you
You have to start at the beginning again
And just this moment
This wonderful fire started up again

When you pass through humble, when you pass through sickly
When you pass through, I’m better than you all
When you pass through anger and self deprecation
And have the strength to acknowledge it all

When the past makes you laugh and you can savor the magic
That let you survive your own war
You find that that fire is passion
And there’s a door up ahead, not a wall.

~ Lou Reed (1942 – 2013)
“Please don’t set me free Death means a lot me.”

The Hidden ~ Niyaz

Nahan (The Hidden) ~ Niyaz

Translation:

Rejoice for he who knows truth

Knows that bliss begets bliss

If you can drink of life’s bitterness and laugh in the face of adversity

In your soul no bitterness will remain.

Arise, for the beloved has arrived

He who has stolen a thousand hearts,

In drunken ecstasy, he has come with drum in hand

To lift the veil and reveal to you his song.

Lost Star Whisperer
Where, where, where have you gone?
Lost Star Whisperer
Where your Cloud Ride has come
Why, oh why have you locked up your sky?
Night in the sky
Whisper me back to life

Night warns of an Eastern threat
North calls reinforcements from the West
Lost all reason guarded by the waves
Sing to life the Seven Lords of Time

Lost Star Whisperer
Send for your Cloud Riders to come
Why, oh why have you locked up your sky?
Night sky
Whisper me back to life

Then I heard you scream
From the other side of the mountain
I saw a you I didn’t want to see
I heard you scream
From the other side of the mountain

Then I heard you scream
From the other side of the mountain
You saw a me I didn’t want to see
I heard you scream
From the other side of the mountain

Lost Star Whisperer
Where, where, where have you gone?
Forged out
Fire and Song
You, you worn
Eight shadows long
Why, oh why
Have you locked up your sky?
Night sky
Whisper me back to life

‘Study determines that Marconi Union‘s 8 minute trance-inducing tune, Weightless, coming out on top thanks to its continuous rhythm of 60 BPM, an ideal tempo for synchronization with the heart and brainwaves, making it an ideal audio accompaniment for a good night’s rest.’

I stumbled upon it right here.
