gnosis lyrics – ulver

science – the new aristocracy
progress – the world is on the march
why shouldn’t it turn too?
it’s the vision of numbers.
we are moving towards the spirit.
certainly deserted: it’s the voice of the oracle, what i say.
understand, and not knowing how to express myself without using hidden words.
i prefer to remain silent

[original excerpt from arthur rimbaud’s “bad blood”]
science! the new n*bility! progress. the world progresses!
why shouldn’t it turn as well?
it’s the vision of numbers. we advance towards the spirit.
it’s quite certain: it’s oracular, what i say.
i know, and unaware how to express myself without pagan words, i’d rather be mute
