Salome 04:38
In olden days beyond eastern sun Tetrarch's nobles gather 'round A feast of decadence unfolds Summons unreluctant gift of heads Korasion, aresen thy king May his head roll to the floor Salome, obey thy Mother! In royal court of carnal minds Lustful plays, desires forbade A feast of sexuality proceeds Unspeakable act of a beheading Korasion, behest thy king May his blood flow upon thy blade Salome, obey thy Mother! Korasion, serve thy king The Baptist's head upon a sliver bowl Salome, obey thy Mother!

Batsheva 03:22
Springtime, upon a terrace high And a maiden beheld by regal eyes Daughter of oath, the King of all Israel Their union foreshadowing a peril In the garden, sings a serpent bird And beauty summons fate to her An unripened fig, sweet taste of sin - Intoxication Forbidden fruit of their love, an evening son Can walk upon coals without scorched feet? Two are better than one Despite mourning, devout lamentations Fated to be eternally entwined Springtime on a terrace high, their sacrifice Can walk upon coals without scorched feet? All is fair in Ahava!

Older than humanity Older than the desert Soul of the world Sings the song of the universe We are loved as we are loved No reasons are needed Omens reveal What has always been One twin soul Destined for us all We are loved as we are loved No reasons are needed
