The Dance of Asmodeus
« on: April 02, 2019, 02:17:48 am »
The dance of Asmodeus

They dance it in the towers of glass
They dance it on the streets
They dance it in the pits of hell
And even angels tap their feet

Its Rhythm is a monotone
Of Mighty symbols clashing
And everybody keeps the beat
We dance the dance of Asmodeus

They dance it at the protest
And in the halls of government
They dance it every night and day
Don't Wonder where your freedom went

They danced it in the Parthenon
And on the Mighty roads of Rome
They danced in Sumer and Babylon
This wicked dance of Asmodeus

You dance it when you go to school
They dance it in the church
You dance it just to get your bread
As back and forth to work you lurch

You dance until you fucking drop
And then you dance some more
The beat is always just the same
The tyrant's dance of Asmodeus

To dance it is to play The Game
Your feet will never stop
You dance it as the bills come due
Whether you're a criminal or cop

Sure bet you dance it everyday
The beat will tick your life away
Now is when there's hell to pay
So dance the dance of Asmodeus

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Verse 2 line 2, is it intended to be symbols or cymbals? Both work but depending which it is it changes things a lot.

This shit is good shit.

ETA: on further rereads and consideration, I feel you probably meant cymbals. If Im wrong, I might have to ask what the intended meaning is.

I am that worst of all type of criminal...I cannot bring myself to do what you tell me, because you told me.

It is an intentional play on words.

Glad you liked it  :)

Was doing a little research on Asmodeus.

Came across this bit from the Lesser key of Solomon

Quote
In the Lesser Key of Solomon Asmodai appears as the king 'Asmoday' in the Ars Goetia, where he is said to have a seal in gold and is listed as number thirty-two according to respective rank.

There are 32 lines in the poem as it came to me  :fnord:
