about

Based on an excerpt from the book Awakening Osiris: A New Translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead by Ellis Normandy (1988), this guitar-rich first track, with its catchy melodies and strong rhythmic harmonies, creates a hypnotic atmosphere that fits perfectly with the translation of a millenia-old text.
Embark with Osiris on a journey to the afterlife and dive into the universe of the Egyptian gods.

lyrics

I am he whose feet are dusty
I am a man like any man born from a blue egg buried
I have seen the flood above the cypress
And known the power within

I have swung wide the two blue doors of heaven
Green water swings wide at the bow of my barque
I have sailed the waterways of the Nile
And entered the sea of heaven

Give me water to drink
Water to drink
Give me water to drink
Quench my thirst
Give me the power of water

I have rubbed shoulders with those,
With those who have rubbed shoulders with Ra
I have envisioned angels without ceasing
I have dreamed the white heat of my own resurrection

I have passed through the floods of emotion,
The floods of emotion and knowledge
I stood on the highest hill in Egypt
And saw the waters embrace the land

Give me water to drink
Water to drink
Give me water to drink
Quench my thirst
Give me the power of water

Give me water to drink
Water to drink
Give me water to drink
Quench my thirst
Give me the power to love

I have seen the moon fill with rain like a silver cup
I've sailed my barque over the sky

I am the sun roaring beside two lions named Yesterday and Tomorrow
I am a young bull in a field of caves

I have eaten the leg of venison and gnawed the bones of his tight
I've gone around every island and sailed all the delta canals

I can name every bright lotus that grows in Egypt
I am the heir of eternity where the water flows

I have eaten the leg of venison and gnawed the bones of his tight
I've gone around every island and sailed all the delta canals

I can name every bright lotus that grows in Egypt
I am the heir of eternity where the water flows

Give me water to drink
Water to drink
Give me water to drink
Quench my thirst
Give me the power of water

Give me water to drink
Water to drink
Give me water to drink
Quench my thirst
Give me the power to love
