The White Palace

“Delirium is good for you”
Said the master of the halls
It takes you further, further in
It mixes terror now with sin
It shows the novice how to begin
With summer nights and lace
In the White Palace

The numinous is here
They advertised this long ago
For those who with their God commune
Are best to come here to this room
And through surrender they resume
Their primordial place
In the White Palace

“The truest blood will fall”
He told us as he laid us down
And nothing here is what it seems
You live in nightmares, pray for dreams
You’ll find simplicity in extremes
And if you’re worthy, grace
In the White Palace
