​Ancient Path

This song is by Pantokrator and appears on the album Unclean Plants / Ancient Path (1997).

I saw one of the naive,
Lacking sense,
Walking to her corner,
By darkness covered.
Hiding his sin in the night.
I saw her come against him.
I saw her hold him tight,
Seducing him with kisses,
Flattery and smiles.

Forsake carnal lust.
Your God you shall trust.
Turn away impulsation.
Cleanse your heart.
Follow the ancient path of wisdom.

Let us drink our fill of love until dawn.
Like an ox goes to the slaughter,
He follows her home.
Her house is the way to hell,
Descending to the chambers of death.
Rejoice in the wife of your youth.
Holy love, holy covenant, never to defile.
As a loving hind, flawless,
Desire forever, a graceful doe she is.
Pleasure and delight. Covenant forever.
In folly they sin, in folly they die.
In wisdom we will walk, in glory we will rise.
Set me as a seal upon your heart.
Set me as a seal upon your arm.
Love burning forever, great waters cannot quench.
Pleasure forever.
