Track Name: main exercise
in purest outpoured light
shimmers the godhead of the world
in purest love towards all that is
outpours the godhood of my soul
i rest within the godhead of the world
there shall i find myself
within the godhead of the world
Track Name: book one; the heart's neighbor
the sixteen gates of belacane
were open like the old clairvoyance
a diamond helmet you did not deserve

inconstancy he lived next door
a neighbor we found bitter
but when dullness, doubt and darkness dawn
i do become blessed
Track Name: book two; herzeloyde's dream
herzeloyde had a dream
holding her hearts sorrow
a dragon from the deep
ill wear your war wounds while i sleep
in lieu of you here next to me

god send me the noble fruit of gahmuret
parzival was born then
Track Name: book three; the first time we see sigune
we tried to stop the birds from singing
they were smarter than us all
and god is brighter than the daylight
zarathustra told us so

sigune named you parzival, right through the middle
sigune named you parzival
and god was in good humor
Track Name: book five; the second time we see sigune
the second time we see sigune
with the body of schianatulander
my cousin how could you not ask the question?
the second time we see sigune
under the heart shaped leaves
parzival had failed his grail initiation

three virgins of body, spirit and soul
Track Name: book six; the curse of cundrie
source of sorrow, oppressor of joy
cundrie cursed you, such a strange creature
the damn of the double, who failed to find honor
save your shame for what is god?
in armor of iron you kissed cunneware
sorrow consumes all joy

who will come to the castle of wonders?
Track Name: book seven; obilot asks the strange knight to serve her
his heart was a fortress in battle
and obilot took him for hers
it is better to trust women than god
according to parzival

but blessed is the fruit which was in you
he sang for god and them
and god spoke from her young mouth
Track Name: book eight; antikonie of the fairy
at a call to arms men always come
lady antikonie lets have your advice
kings and rooks to guard yourself
they wanted your tower torn down

there were sorrows enough to weave a crown
but clear-eyed as a falcons sight
for the grail gawain was left alive
Track Name: book nine; the third time we see sigune
you sat on a bench by a window
and spoke to sigune, your soul
her whole life a kneeling in prayer now

then a grail horse took you to trevrizent
who told you you oughta trust god
he will help you for he must

so take that track undaunted till you tell him yes to joy
Track Name: book ten; the mighty orgeluse
if you seek my love you will lose
dont praise too much, live warlike
orgeluse took the first boat out
but surely she had her reasons

a sunshower, she was sour and sweet
and the ferryman took you home to his family
where good fortune's still not asleep
Track Name: book fifteen; juno, rejoice
these men were born from battle din, one flesh
that is two brothers-- you found yourself in feirefiz

a round table measured by moonlight
cundrie's mouth was a violet
which told you youd won the grail

and seven stars she named for you:
rejoice youve been called to the grail
Track Name: book sixteen; the last time we see sigune
sigune had died in a posture of prayer
god has many secrets
you have forced him by defiance
now joy has come to the castle of grail

condwiramurs wore just a smock
when parzival surprised her
was all this done for womans sake?
