"Thelema is Dead" lyrics.

I’ve been asked to provide the lyrics to this song many times over the last few years and keep forgetting. (Probably because I wrote it 4-7 years ago.) Cheers!

"Thelema is Dead"

SCHOLAR The Rapping Occultist

“Now that the Crow was forced to fly.

With no last meal.

And we watched a controlled burn on the Greenfield.

We can return to our regular ambivalent selves.

And watch, how slow

Our Order will melt.

Like polar ice caps-

It’s collapsin’ silent, but deadly.

Steadily weakening the current.

Breaking down effectiveness. /

Now join me in this story from glory to gory.

And we’ll retrace the steps…how it all to came down to this

Kick out the competent.

Protect the Queen at all costs.

The ladies in waiting don’t know…Thelema is lost.

(Chorus)

A requiem for Thelema

It was so sad to see it pass.

Now that it’s gone-

Christianity can relax.

A requiem for Thelema because it tried so hard.

But individual liberty lasts so long. (repeat once)

A requiem for giving it the “old school try”-

“And boy! Did this aeon…sure fly by!”

It started strong…

In the minds of a few followers.

at Cefalu, Italy

And in limited publishing-

We can still see the people paid top dollar-

to follow the work of Ed Al/

And how ‘bout-

the Rocket Work of old Mar-vall-

I mean Jack P-

And his Babalon decree-

And if “Freedom is a Two edged sword”/

On my word it  made a re-prise/

In the 70’s 80’s.

With Major Grady- 

But lately, 

I can name 36 bands with millions of fans-

And hands in pockets that could pay dues./

to buy books the members who bought them can’t use-

Unless their sixth degree/

And that percentage is around three-

Chorus)

A requiem for Thelema

It was so sad to see it pass.

Now that it’s gone-

Christianity can relax.

A requiem for Thelema because it tried so hard.

But individual liberty lasts so long. 

“The word of Sin is restriction.”!!!

So I gotta let my feelings be free/

Title: “Serpentine Splendour Lodge” Verse Number Three!!!

No pain, no gain…

Grand Lodge had a Sister in waiting to reign.

A “Dame Knight” who knew less…

Than our welcome guests. (pause)

It’s depressing rehashing what happened to my Body.(pause)

The one I bled, sweat, and swept for!!/

Deaconed, Novitiate Priest, and led for.

A-voided bed and went to debt for.

(Officered, taught classes and mopped floors.

“Twenty years of service” Kayla likes to claim./

But Libers 5 and 36 can her scrambled her brain. 

How can you be an initiator in the O.T.O, where they take oaths/

And yet hold Crowley so low?

A sign of the times, I guess.

Because Thelema’s turning “Crowley-less”

When even Body Masters and Bishops ignore-

The hand that moved the pen.(pause)

And The Great Beast released-

the manuscript from the lips of the Secret Chiefs.

Chorus)

A requiem for Thelema

It was so sad to see it pass.

Now that it’s gone-

Christianity can relax.

A requiem for Thelema because it tried so hard.

But individual liberty lasts so long. 

And proceed as King SB ignores…

A member of the EC/

And his wife of 6th degree/

Shroomin’ in the mass freely.

But publish books on aliens you’re up a tree. 

waiting to be stunned, shunned, hung up, and done!

And next, get snuck out the back door, packed like you’re trash in a bundle./

And congratulations on your new title: DISGRUNTLED.

We don’t care what your will is as long as it’s in harmony with ours.

When eventually you’re expelled they’ll be no visible scars.

So let’s hold back books. And watch readership dissolve.\

And throw out Charter books and watch leadership revolve

around who knows who…and who can be spoonfed like a retarded baby hyena./ Contributing to killing Thelema

(Chorus)

A requiem for Thelema

It was so sad to see it pass.

Now that it’s gone-

Christianity can relax.

A requiem for Thelema because it tried so hard.

But individual liberty lasts so long. 

OTO must die. 

For iron core Thelemites to fly higher than they’ve ever been.

Like Hymanaeus Alpha said, 

“I’m a soldier first, last, and always.”

Lookin for those “iron core” Thelemites.

But those iron core Thelemites might not seek the light.

That the Order extinguishes with its grip so tight. 

It might find its magic is a blind, like sight. 

Cause there’s not one leader that I’d like to be like. 

(Chorus)

A requiem for Thelema

It was so sad to see it pass.

Now that it’s gone-

Christianity can relax.

A requiem for Thelema because it tried so hard.

But individual liberty lasts so long.

"Already Did It" King Ice contest adaptation.

New projects under way.

First and foremost there’s the KingIce.com Contest VI. I have entered my submission and I hope you will vote for me. Not to appease, but to represent any inkling of mysticism and occultism in a  “popular” music” format. My song is, “Already Did It” and it covers such topics as my age and wisdom in this rap culture, old school hip hop, Thelema.  I quote The Gnostic Mass, and basically tear up the whole beat that they require the contestants to fulfill.

 

NOTE: I did NOT make the beat, so the fact that it’s four verses long- DON’T BLAME ME.

 

I am only a humble oratorical mystic fulfilling the requirements of a contest to win some jewelry.  (If I can’t use my talent to get jewelry and rich robes than what shall I use it for?!)

Judging by the videos submitted thus far I surmise that I am the only contestant with a dictionary and the will to pass inspiration forward.

Most of the other conestants are, “uhhhn….what?…Yeah….peace.”

The only reason I won’t win this contest is the same reason I didn’t get the Sprite commercial in the late 90’s  or the VH-1 show in 2005.

“We’re looking for someone more New York.”. Read as: We want someone to rap about bitches,hoes and money. (And they say I’m  Illuminati….)

 

Finally doing my will, I am writing about whatever I will. Usually magick, Thelema, hip hop, and how badass I am at this. (Which is irrefutable.; )

Or self evident at least. In any case…I am still here despite the degradation of the world.  The SCHOLAR signal is lit and I shall respond accordingly.

I’ve been away awhile and I’ve learned a lot!

I’m typing this on my new Android so I don’t know how long my patience for hand held typing shall last. I have gone from iPhone connectivity and financial extortion to no cell phone to a flip Tracfone with zero online access or user ability,but I somehow was able to retain the $120 a month expenditure! I lost the $60 extra dollars a month for the AT&T bill and only reduced my bill to $120-$130 a month on a prepaid plan with zero internet or web use. Saved little and lost much. Now I’ve purchased a no contract Android 2 for $48 a month unlimited. We shall see. But so far, I am able to do everything I’d hoped. And I am still saving money away from AT&T. Lesson learned.

Tickets for Run DMC, Kool Keith, and Westside Connection. We were so close to the intimate stage at the Run DMC show that we were getting fist bumps from Run and DMC.

Who’s “real” hip hop?

I think a lot of white guys my age still feel they don’t “deserve” to have ownership in hip hop. We paid the money for cassette tapes, CD’s, video tapes, DVD’s, and now downloads and ring tones. Not to mention all of the clothes and style of wearing your clothes everyday. We’ve listened to, studied, and not only loved, but defended hip hop longer than the entire incarnation of some of these kids supposedly reppin’ “real” hip hop. 

I saw Run DMC on the fledgling MTV channel. I bought chains by the inch at Woolworths in downtown San Francisco. Saved my money for my first concert, Public Enemy, and the Oakland fires shut that opportunity down. With my saved money I bought a big o’le boom box to bump more hip hop and got a fuckin’ piece of linoleum tile to breakdance upon with friends. People saying, “It’s just a phase.” I got Michael Jackson parachute pants with the zippers. MC Hammer pants. Hyper Colors, thermal changing t-shirts. The Beastie Boys, The Fat Boys, UTFO, LL Cool J’s “Radio”. Whodini on vinyl. “Cooley High”. Later it was WSCG. Westside Connection brought a back tattoo of my comedy crew in L.A in old english script on my back which I later showed Ice Cube himself. (See my memoir for this hysterical story.) My own hip hop album in 1998.

Even my “newest” rap persona is over a decade old! I had a Public Enemy shirt for everyday of the week and became the foremost teenage expert on Malcolm X at my school. Talk about crazy! A white boy organizing “Malcolm X Day” at a high school in the Silicon Valley suburbs in 1991?! Let’s not even get into the fact I was in “Sister Act 2” and rapped in parking lot cyphers with Lauryn Hill. I did my occult hip hop for Lauryn later in the late 90’s and she was confused ,but supportive. So when you sit there thinking you have no right to hip hop in 2012, realize you built and supported this art form so that it can be where it is today. My bling is my grey hairs and my dulling mind is a history of hip hop’s evolution. 

 Who’s real hip hop?
