Backworld – The Wisdom Of The Flesh lyrics

From within come the visions, memories of things I cannot know
The memory of the everlasting heaven of the senses
The memory we bring with ourselves at birth
The memories of all forbidden powers and pleasures

All this is contained in the helix of the body
Even death is encoded in this street of the flesh
Symbols burst from from inside out
Bringing with them the hidden truth of stolen treasures here to be reclaimed

The flesh is ours and it is also ours te be learned, to learn the wisdom of the flesh
For if the hand is to grasp the heart it cannot be ruled from without
It must be faithfully guided frow within, the body
It must be written again and again, etched on the surface of the flesh
The senses must be tempered as they are burned, just as the fire tempers the steel of swords

Yearning will be given over to the wisdom of the body
The uncovering of the bible which lies coiled in the heart of love
This knot is undone by the revelations that had been long denied
That we are of this one flesh
And it is neither good or evil
That yearning can be given over to the wisdom of the body
And that heaven lies here for the taking
Disguised in the cloth of death

And so the fire of blood floods the horizon
And great cracks and fissures split the flesh world
And then from deep within the body will come a lightning
Approaching, nearing, gathering, striking
This is the violent love of the saints
Impaled heroes of the christians
The whoredom of the holy god
Violation of the sacred love
Miracle of sodomy
The memory of the body
