    "The Descent Of Long Satan And Babylon" Lyrics

    Current 93

    Long Satan and Babylon are walking
    They're talking of fire and of ice
    Of the silence that stalks in the forest
    And a Christ spun out of the worlds

    Long Satan and Babylon are moving
    Through a world ripped away from its centre
    They shear through the rushes
    They follow the night night night night

    They want want want want want want

    Long Satan and Babylon are rushing
    They are hurtling away
    From the centre of things
    They are running from the inside

    The wind cries full and in them
    Cuts through their emptiness
    Hoof on stone
    Claw against sun
    Where to look in an unknown

    Where to search in the vast whole
    Piggy-back cross oh piggy-black cross
    Into the silence thundering
    As they only hear the silence

    They do not hear the pain
    But Christ sees everything
    The little children are falling
    They'll topple till the end of the world

    Long Satan and Babylon keep running
    Through a universe empty of sound
    Though the world makes dark shadows
    You must look in your heart
    In the dark
    You must look in your heart
