"Midnight wheels majestic in the grace / Of ancient rite like a living thing / In the new moon in the holy place / Where the dead are brought burnt offering"

Chorus Mysticus:

New Moon Offering


Dark this night of sable rich and deep

Breathes a quiet breeze upon chill air

Far away they dance and die and weep

Are born and laugh and learn to walk where

Millions walked and fell and turned to soil

Doomed entombed after a life of toil


No one dances no one is born here

No one laughs and no one here walks now

But for one occasion which most fear

When strangers are moved to dance somehow

Silently they dance as turns the wheel

Silently the turning earth they feel


Hooded in the shadows now they face

Each other across the turning ring

Midnight wheels majestic in the grace

Of ancient rite like a living thing

In the new moon in the holy place

Where the dead are brought burnt offering

Definitely visionary. Not just any moon, not even a full moon, but a new moon has a tremendous affect on us, or shall I say the invisible ones. Thanks for sharing this thriller chorus with us.
