lyrics

Into a kind of psychedelic state
To overwhelm
The sensibilities
To tip them over

There is some confusion
As to what magic actually is
Indeed to cast a spell
Is simply to spell
Grimoire for example, the book of spells
Is simply a fancy way of saying grammar

Art whether that be writing, music, sculpture
Or any other form
Is literally magic

The very language of magic
The science of manipulating symbols, words, or images
To manipulate words
I believe that magic is art
The kind of narrative journey
To achieve changes in consciousness
That can change a human being
That can change a society

To change people's consciousness
I believe that this is completely literal
And direct it to
Different places, different levels
Into a kind of psychedelic state
To overwhelm
The sensibilities
To tip them over

The science of manipulating symbols, words, or images
Seems to be talking as much about writing or art
As it is about supernatural events

Every human soul
Is in fact one human soul
It is the soul of the universe itself

When we are doing the will of our true self
We are inevitably doing the will of the universe
In magic these are seen as indistinguishable
And as long as you are doing the will of the universe
Then it is impossible to do anything wrong
