Song of the Night #58: “For the Love of God” by Ulver
For the Love of God is a song that didn’t always mean much to me before a sudden illness took me. Nearly dying a few times, my mind kept retreating to a place where I was myself, yet someone else. I lived an entire life in this mental/spiritual retreat.
I had no music in the hospital, so my mind had to compensate. The chorus line “Going Down Faster Than The – Going Down Deeper Than The…over and over and over again, for weeks on end, until I woke up, frankly bored of my retreat.
“Life after Life” possibility confirmed to me 100%. If my body had stayed dead, I would have continued life either at my retreat, or elsewhere, but certainly not simply “Dead.”
The lyrics derived of the Christian revelation; horrific mythology.
“If the King loves music, it is well with the land.” – Mencius
Going down faster than the… Light
Going down deeper than the… Dark
