Afterlife

In the morning, dawn surrounds you,

Son of Egypt, start your day

Horizons stretch forever, terrain is whips and chains

Flying high above a bird of prey casts its shade

As your master wails upon you, just the same as yesterday

 

Now you're in trouble

Back on your feet

You're seeing double

Escape with haste at the edge of a knife

Or make your way into the afterlife

 

All alone in the microwave,

the sun makes you it's slave

And the bricks you lay reveal your bones,

pray the Gods hear you today

As you dream of Cleopatra and

the gold on which she lays 

The lighting strike of a rattlesnake

floods poison through your veins 

 

Now you're in trouble

Back on your feet

You're seeing double

Escape with haste at the edge of a knife

Or make your way into a afterlife

 

Peaceful and easy thru the Fields of Reeds

Aglide on the Nile though the valley of Thebes

Weigh your heart against a feather  

 

Nehes em hotep,                   (Awake in peace,)

Nehes em neferu                   (Lady of Peace.)

Nebet em hotepet                  (Rise thou in peace,)

Weben em hotep,                   (Rise thou in beauty.)

Weben em nefuru,                 (Goddess of Life,) 

Nebet em hotepet                  (Rise, thou in peace)

Nutjert en Ankh,                     (Beautiful in heaven,)

Nefer em pet!                         (Heaven is in peace.)

Pet em hotep, em hotep        (Earth is in peace.)

Merit Ausar;                            (Beloved of Osiris,)

Nutjert asha renu!                 (Goddess rich in names!)

Nebet em hotepet                  (Rise, thou in peace)

 

Awake again, now you're in trouble

Back on your feet

You're seeing double

Say goodbye you’re buried by the rubble

 

Awake again, now you're in trouble

Back on your feet

You're seeing double

Escape with haste at the edge of a knife

Or make your way into the afterlife
