ISHTAR LYRICS

INTRO

Voices from ruined cities mingle the story of the past with the dreams of the future.

 

HOOK

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Queen of Heaven Love is Salvation

Verse One

So many of us

Representing love

Aphrodite, Isis, Lilith, Nanna

Tammuz too

Astaroth, Astarte

Hathor, Turan

So many of us prove

Without love you lose

 

Verse Two

Coming back through the first gate she got back her dress

second gate were the clasps for her hands and feet.

third gate the birthstone belt was returned

fourth gate ornaments for her breasts were re-earned.

fifth gate chains for her neck. 

Didn’t lose anything yet - it was all low tech

sixth gate earrings, seventh the great crown for her head

Emerging from the underworld no longer dead

 

Verse Three

As for Tammuz, in truth

the lover of her youth,

Wash him with pure water, anoint him with sweet oil

He can pay the price now it’s time for him to toil
