Grinding to the moon,
Beheading the men
Your arms are red

Emancipated and foreign
All your daughters
Hungry priestesses!

Entry to the sea,
Cosmic vagina,
Luminous night and sleeplessness!

Careless to the dawn:
Kidnaping! Victory!
Chant to the Sun

Violated Selene,
Tamed woman,
You allowed everything!

Submitted, accomplice
of ivory bosoms
Of priestess to priest

Aberration to see you!
converted and parishioner
You know Aton's singing

All this time forgotten!
Goddess Lilith...
I will adore you

Lovely- the accusation "you allowed everything!" is great.
