Текст песни Nile - The Essential Salts

The necromancers of GizaA cult of reanimatorsConcerned with interrogation of the long deadCorpses who may be revived and made to talkAnd describe the contents of rare booksAnd gold hidden in the earthAlthough they are often reluctant to reveal their secretsAnd must be encouraged with fire and bladeA corpse chosen for resurrectionIs cut into parts of convenient sizeBoiled in clean waterLinen strips of mummification are removedAnd the skull and bones liquefiedAnd boiled until all water is goneWhat remains in the bottomIs a white crystalline substanceThat may be carried in the palms of two handsThis white powder contains the essential saltsOf the man whose corpse was boiledIt is from this powder that the living body may be reconstituted

And made to serve as a house for the soulWhich is called back into its former flesh by words of powerIt is a great shock to the soulTo tear it back from its resting place and reanimate itThe resurrected are often insane and scream ceaselessly or dash themselves into wallsIf the salts are contaminated with the essence of other living beingsWhen the mummy has been the breeding place of verminThe revitalization of the salts produces somethingThat is part man and part whatever gnawed his corpseThese horrors lack the faculty of speechOr their speech is crazed and bestialAnd must be immediately slainFor though the memory of the man may remain intactThe verminous parts of his reanimated natureInhibit his human expressionThose who have served their purpose are killedBy strangulation with a cord around the neckAnd their bodies burnedTheir ashes gathered and cast into the NileWhere the currents carry them to sea
