- The Song of the Hunt
- Tracing an ever wider spiral,
- The Hunt circles the world of mortals.
- Everything decays in the centrifugal vortex,
- Pure anarchy rages over the world.
- The winds of war swell on blood,
- Flooding the rites of ancient innocence.
- The best lose all hope, and the worst
- Revel in fervent and fitful power.
- Looking glass images without heart or mind
- Haunt the worlds in the name of those,
- Who have preserved blood from blood,
- And feed on unrestrained lust.
The song is a paraphrasing of the first verse of the poem, The Second Coming, by W.B. Yeats:
- Turning and turning in the widening gyre
- The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
- Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
- Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
- The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
- The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
- The best lack all conviction, while the worst
- Are full of passionate intensity.
