“…’I see ruins’, said he…”



Men chasing stable family lives before they, themselves, are even on firm ground.

Women delaying marriage and family creation for careers, “fun” and “self-discovery”.



Men becoming more feminine.

Women becoming more masculine.



Spoiled children leading their parents.

Parents letting children raise themselves.



Women forsaking male approval.

Men begging for female approval.



Hatred and censorship constructed in the name of tolerance.

True tolerance viewed as “siding with the enemy”.



It seems to me that everything is backwards, these days.

But then:

I suppose it’s all in how one perceives it.

    • A few minor corrections to the on-screen lyrics:

      It should read “…the one middle path makes me sad…” referring, in occult traditions, to the average man’s life [neither the “right hand path” (white magick) nor the “left hand path” (black magick) is taken]; also, it should read “no imps can do” referring to the fact that knowledgeable practitioners should not deal with lesser demons and their ilk; lastly, the line should read “he will give those with him 666″. That is, of course, if one believes such things.

    When my wild oates have been sown? When I have more experience in the bank to deal with problems more real than the ‘one’ I face now?

  3. […] Although difficult to choose just one song, “Sparks” would be my favorite groove on the album.  It’s another jam that touches on a doo wop style.  I was listening to it last night and it made me think of Ace at 80proofOinomancy.  In particular, I thought of this post. […]
