Jade Emperor 06:09
Lord of nothing and less than nothing In a city of millions An empire of billions A yellow river, a yellow earth Son of heaven him they call Jade emperor, master of all He‘s none of these things, none at all A middle king for a middle kingdom The true Jade Emperor you cannot see Across southern mountains he soars free His beard of silver flows downstream Aeons upon aeons has he seen Dancing in fields of cinnebar Swift but still, always near but afar, A tongue without words Understood by all A strength unconquerable One never need call Elixirs brewed of true gold, Arsenic, steel, lead, cobalt It’s this Jade Emperor whom I seek Life eternal, divine potency From your mouth I drink, Jade emperor! Into death I sink, Jade emperor! Recipes passed down from days of old, Each one shall I imbibe, wait shall I not!
2.
Hell is no pit No cave, no fire No deep, no dark No sky, no moon No wind, no star Hell is the sea Out wide and yonder A writhing tide A drowning hope Jade-green and far No breath, only scream Under the mask they scream No breath, no breath Under the green jade mask Souls churn in waves Named now nameless Lived now lifeless Faces now faceless Sunless, lightless No breath, only scream Under the mask they scream No breath, no breath Under the green jade mask
3.
Blossom 04:43
Blossom, I strike you down by sword of flower Not by steel, but by my power A monarch you to enslavement seize On a petal throne The sun is thirsty Blood on stone Sacrificial slabs await The warlord‘s own A soldier you to death release Blood on stone His thirst we‘ll slake Blossoms, dead combatants I don‘t need Feathers, living prisoners do I keep Blossoms, sacrificial slabs await Feathers, his thirst we‘ll slake
4.
I am there, the Smoking Mirror Where there is silent wind Where a jaguar creeps Where battle-horns roar Where a man is sacrificed Where there is prophecy Where blood is spilled Where a maiden weeps Where a city lives I am there, the Smoking Mirror Necoc Yaotl! Teacher Necoc Yaoti! Betrayer Enemy of both sides Yohualli Ehecatl! The obsidian God I am there, the smoking mirror
