Lyrics[edit]

Text: Heraclitus of Ephesus

κόσμον τόνδε, τὸν αὐτὸν ἁπάντων, οὔτε τις θεῶν οὐτε ἀνθρώπων ἐποίησεν, ἀλλ' ἦν ἀεὶ καὶ ἔστιν καὶ ἔσται πῦρ ἀείζωον, ἁπτόμενον μέτρα καὶ ἀποσβεννύμενον μέτρα.
ψυχῇσιν θάνατος ὕδωρ γενέσθαι, ὕδατι δὲ θάνατος γῆν γενέσθαι, ἐκ γῆς δὲ ὕδωρ γίνεται, ἐξ ὕδατος δὲ ψυχή
 
This cosmos, the same for all, was made by neither god nor man, but was, is and always will be: an ever-living fire, kindling and extinguishing according to measure.
For souls, becoming water is death. For water, becoming earth is death, From earth the water comes-to-be, and from water the soul.

Notes[edit]

  • god of fire to whom children were sacrificed
  • I Kings 11:7 - "Then did Solomon build a high place for Chemosh the abomination of Moab, on the mountain that is before Jerusalem, and for Moloch the abomination of the children of Ammon."
