​Anubis

This song is by Nik Turner and appears on the album Xitintoday (1978).

With my jackal-like head man calleth me Anubis
Child of love of Nephtys and Osiris
Vigilant on my mountain, of the gods I am protector
In wood be my image, a powerful sceptre
Like the earth t'kau which the gods mouths I loosed
In my Hall of Two Truths no untruth be excused

The heart in the balance, the tongue I test
In my hall divine we try only the best
Please observe, my dear Thoth, my weighing precision
The fate of this heart rests upon thy decision
My Anubian lights can lead it to the next world
Or, unjustified, to the Dread Devourer be hurled

I perform psychostasis, give thou me thy hand
Fit thee up with space/time suit, make firm thy thighs to stand
My stealth with... I call to thee hither
I can destroy thoughts within thee, come thee therefore thither

I keep the con of movements of planets and spaces
Numbers and forms, bodies and places
Placed the stars in the constellation of the Great Bear
Held from Set till Thoth takes it in care
On the day of which the universe began
It was my lot to allot destinty to each man
