,,And this I learnt and this I know
You cannot escape the beast when you wear His mark “ …from the lyrics of the song.
lyrics Lain With The Wolf : ,,I have lain with the lamb Sang his tender praise on long dark nights Searched my drawn face long and hard For a sign of his light Shoulders to the wheel for the grist of faith Is manna for the blind Like a child of Cain without the providence of truth Joy did come. It rose with the morning sun Like cold guilty sweat across my brow These are the first words that fell upon my lips I have lain with the wolf He seeks me out and demands my company In the corner of a crowded room With words of madness and water of fire He whispers, when the demons come Do you make peace with them or do you become one of them? Do you? If I give name to my furies, can you name them? He preaches salvation in the loins of women And the black sciences When the shadow fell upon me I knew I was running with the wolf And it was his eyes I saw staring back And this I learnt and this I know You cannot escape the beast when you wear his mark."
"And I say to my people's masters: beware, beware of the Thing that is coming, beware of the risen people, who shall Take what we would not give. Did ye think to conquer the people, or that law is stronger Than life and than men's desire to be free?" [―Padraig Pearse, "The Rebell"]
