    I , NEPTHYS

    hear, hear my confessions
    I mirrored your image
    and, and with that deception
    I took your lover
    a son born of Osiris was
    my, it was my only chance
    for motherhood


    PRE CHORUS
    OH MIGHTY ONE CAN YOU HEAR ME
    I AM DARKNESS
    I AM CHAOS OH I AM I AM CHAOS x4

    CHORUS
    i reveal the end the end of mortality
    im the slayer who approach thy flame
    and im the knife that cutteth when my names spoken
    and im the existence of life which springs from death
    come come come come come to me X2


    I I hear your anger
    I do not doubt your concern
    the child will serve a purpose
    as a god and guardian
    he will lead, those who've passed on
    from mortal life
    and guard the city of thee undead

    PRE CHORUS REPEAT

    CHORUS REPEAT

    SOLO

    CHORUS REPEAT
    -----

    This is one of my favorite song so far. The chant "I am chaos" I could listen to over and over, just that one part. With the driving beat and Aziza's amazing voice, it's easy to let my body move and let everything go. For those who don't know who Nephthys is, here is a link to an explaination.

    Nepthys

    So the lyrics

    refer to the interpretation that she disguised herself as her sister Isis, Osiris' wife, and became pregnant by him.


    I love researching the lyrics to these songs because I learn even more about ancient Egypt. Somehow Aziza is able to bring this time to life through her song and not only entertain but also honor the Gods and Goddesses and encourage people to become more educated.

    What do you think about the lyrics to this song?

    I'm a big history buff and I commend the band's accurate use of Egyptian mythology in their lyrics. It really lends a unique and unusual quality. I've seen Egyptian inspired things before that seem really cheesy due to a lack of research, but the band obviously knows their stuff. Kudos!

    Thank you for the comments. We carefully research all things going into our lyrics. And being part Egyptian, I feel compelled to keep the history and mythology of Ancient Egypt alive. We have several others that are not heard online that dive into the Egyptian book of the dead, the weighing of the heart, and embracing death to go into the afterlife. Though our latest song "Lady of War" is all about Ra's daughter Sekhmet, the lion goddess. It will be on the new album!
