I am what demons dare to dream
I am your leader beyond the sea
I am your freedom, bearing the key
So come forth
Come forth and follow

I am your healer, I cleanse your fate
I will deliver and make you great
I have the power to instigate
So come forth
Come forth and follow

The key is turned
A lesson learned
The contradictions for which we yearn
Believe in me
I set you free
So follow
Follow me

Beauty in silence, behold your king
I am the drop of life in spring
Lover, provider, your everything
So come forth
Come forth and follow

I liberate
Your soul will wait
The locust buzzing before the gate
I set them free
As you will see
If you follow
Follow me

liberator
what I like the most about this is the ominous undercurrent to these paved-with-gold promises… the rhythm is hypnotic which goes well with the beat of every messianic assertion… can picture David Koresh promising such, or the reverend Jimmy Jones…

also reminds me of a sticker I once saw, on some kid’s back pack at an anti-war demo: stylised American flag with bomb’s falling in front. overlayed caption read “we’re gonna liberate the shit outta you!”…

it’s one of those words, ain’t it. doesn’t mean the same to everybody. thanks for distilling that portentous subjectivity so well.

Sometimes...
...I swear you must be psychic :-). While I wrote this a while ago (I recently rediscovered some writing I thought was lost), cults were very much in mind, then and now.

I would highly recommend "The Devil's Party: A history of charlatan messiahs," by Colin Wilson. He gives examples of "messiahs" and cult leaders through history, pointing out their differences and similarities. He also describes the disciple psychology - why people follow these leaders and the extent to which the two are mutually dependant. While he does throw a little too much of his own commentary (not that I'm anyone to judge on that front) it's well worth a read.

Your description of the sticker made me think of this: http://recollectionbooks.com/bleed/images/BB/wedeliver.gif

All the best,

JonnyT.f being liberated
JT-
Reminded me of how politicians say what they need to, depending on which audience they are speaking to; gaining power by telling folks what they wish to hear/believe.

Shannon's take was interesting, as well.

Enjoyed,
RW
