lyrics

Thou venerable son of Naqada
whose voice breaks the solace of night
Devourer of Iah and captor of Aten
defiler of obsolete knowledge
On the prough of the barque of millions of years
spearing the serpent of chaos undying
Ma’at and Isfet are forever encircled
without and within us all

Iahu Neter Setesh
Isfet Neter

Enigma to even thy priesthood
an image in turbulent sands
Our heretic god here remains
bearer of the obsidian flame
Thou rewarded a guiltless betrayal
sealed with the poison of vanity
In turns respected, detested
but never truly forgotten

Iahu Neter Setesh
Isfet Neter

Thou suffered the blame for foreigners’ crimes
and the black soil buried thy temples
Though the Nile has been tamed we cannot forget
that even the gods must depart from these lands

Cast off every chain which binds us
to the throne or to the temple
Let us know not blind obeisance
or respect to those underserving
When the Nile runneth over
unearthing all of our failures
Let them sink into the Duat
with all that we have outgrown
