BETHZAIDA lyrics : "The Curtain Falls (The Tale Continues)"

Hear my tale of tragedy:


"Alas, philosophy I have explored
as well as medicine and law
add to these regrettably

my studies in theology
Yet here I sit, a foolish bore
no wiser than I was before

No dog can live like this
knowledge gained is far from bliss

So I resolved my soul to free
through blackest magic and dark alchemy"
[Goethe: Faust]

And from my library old
I have this book which I am told

Holds the key to strangest lands
Places never travelled by man
It will, no doubt, open my eyes

through Hell I will finally find my Paradise

[The Fool:]

From browsing through this book I have learned
that all that I have ever yearned
may be accomplished easily

with words uttered feasibly
As long as I in my circle remain
nothing can harm me, the demons are chained

And with the next word I do burn
The devils back to Hell return

As a fool summons a devil, so will I
summon the Fallen Angel of Light

And with his widom in my sight
I will remain (both day and night)
as happy as a man can be

for no knowledge will be strange to me
Of stars in heaven I will know
As life itself I will explore

Rain and thunder I do endure, likewise
fire and ice

the elements are torturing me
with the only purpose that I shall see
and know the wisdom of the lord

Lucifer I summon thee!


I have come to visit you this late
(although your spells are out of date)
To see who mocks the name of God

he might be of interest to my lord


Then I will speak, and you hear this:
In my search for eternal bliss
I will give my very soul to you

If what you claim is really true
Then you will serve me loyally
obey my orders accurately

For me accomplish any task
bring me the moon if I should ask
When time is up you claim your prize:

My soul forever absent from heavenly paradise

As I do sign this covenant

in blood from a cut in my hand
My soul is not for God to claim
I will have twenty-four years with maidens and fame

And now I do enquire of you
The secrets of life, of Oceans blue

of stars upon the mighty sky
of moon and planets far up high

That is not for man to know

as words can not tell what they are of
and man cannot grasp what words cannot command
for words are far more glorious than ever was man


Your tracherous lies are powerless
You do not convince me, for I stress:
do I not grasp love and hate,
pleasure and pain, lust and fate ?
I cannot describe these, yet I know

that in my heart with fire they flow

How I repent my loathsome deeds,
these devils do not fullfill my needs...

Faustus! I am not at all thrilled
you try to escape, yet you have no will
but to bath in all pleasures that flesh can give
even though, as it appears, your virgin is a devil

and now is the day of your fears
I will collect what is mine after twelve years
as day and night I gave you plenty
(twelve and twelve is four-and-twenty)
thus, what was thine
is now forever mine
