The Ascension E.P.

The Ascension E.P

Seven songs, for the seven chakras, seven songs for the seven seas, seven songs for the seven seals!

From the bottom to the top, from the root to the crown, from the inner, to the outer, from sea to sky, from birth, to death, and beyond.

The Ascension! A symphonic, shamanic journey of Seven.

A Rock and Roll Resurrection!

“The Power of Seven. Seven signifies plentitude, the universal and perfection. Seven has direct bearing on the spiritual and evolutionary plane; it is magical, revelatory, and possesses divine wisdom. The symbol of spiritual connection, evolution, refinement, spirituality and deep knowledge. The seven year planetary rhythms have been a given for millions of years, well before humanity existed, and this seven comes through everything that followed.

The number seven as a vibration of birth carries as its mission working towards achieving inner perfection. A mission to reveal the truths deciphered along one’s search for knowledge…”

Post-debut, alerted, awakened, alone and on fire for more answers, the young Virago begins her own self-directed Jedi training, and disappears into the depths of her own inner inquiry, immersing herself in her own direct experience of the mystery of Waking Life…

After a long and deep dive, Virago breaches the surface to break nearly 5 years of recorded silence since the cosmic birthing experience of the debut album Incunabulum. Equipped with a deep catalogue of songs stalled-out on other, more elaborate album works still unfinished, a creative bottleneck of a unique vintage had developed. In the meantime, in Space and Time, another musical time-stamp was needed; a placeholder, a watchtower, a recalibration of the original artistic philosophy. And so, seven songs were selected that were not envisioned on any other pre-existing album ideas she had in development. An “E.P.” emerged, her version of one, anyway. Emphasizing simplicity, a musical mini-opus materialized into an elemental, sonic short-story, encapsulating long-form esoteric content contained within ascendent parameters. Seven singular songs, born originally and individually, but acting synchronistically in destiny as seven sacred seals that come together as one wave of vibratory folk-prophecy. Materializing into matter from spirit, then ascending again, there, and back again, in the transmuted energy dance of Mother Earth and Father sky. An Extended Play (E.P.) in Eternity, the Ascension E.P…

The album was recorded in indie lo-fi in all-live takes, with percussion elements also added live by Virago, over three days of Death and Resurrection, on the Holy Easter of 2015 A.D.

Enjoy, echoes in Eternity…

Love Always,

Virago

The Ears of Eternity
05:40

Time will tell
and Eternity will listen…

She shook the stardust from her eyes
blazing bright as comets caressing the sky
her tears were falling stars
drops of galaxies
spiraling and spilling
into Space and Time
eclipsing Eternity
inviting Infinity
transmuting the Event Horizon of her Heart

Time will tell
and Eternity will listen…

gazing down upon the Earth she laughed
luscious lips
singing Spirit into substance
a Form to follow all forms
a Body to embody all bodies

and now a body catch a body
coming through the sky
the Body of Christ
the vessel of Light
reflection of Love


Time will tell
and Eternity will listen…

and yes it is
a House of Mirrors
but rejoice!
for they are mirrors of Truth
reflection of Love

and I know nothing for certain
but I do feel certain
that Everything is for certain

and Time will tell
yes Time will tell
and Eternity will listen…

Love in the Time of the Earth
06:58

I fell in Love today
it came and washed my tears away
and gave me a reason to stay

I fall in love everyday
it keeps the darkness away
and gives me a reason to stay
here on the Earth
where I am bound to her Love
body and blood
branches and roots
muscle and bone
water and stone

I saw the sky today
it sent the rain to wash away
the doubt that led us astray

and I saw the sun today
it sent the rays to melt away
the pain that got in our way

and I read the sign today
it said all fear would fly away
and give us a reason to stay
here on the Earth
where we are bound to her Love
body and blood
branches and roots
muscle and bone
water and stone

I hope you fell in Love today
I hope it washed your tears away
and gave you a reason to stay
here on the Earth
where you are bound to her Love
body and blood
branches and roots
muscle and bone
water and stone…

whats the point of learning history
if you continue to repeat it?

whats the point of knowing natures code
if you continue to mistreat it?

whats the point of reading the Eightfold Path
if you refuse to walk upon it?

whats the point of preaching a life of peace
when you turn and spit upon it?

whats the point of watching Life come and go
if you’re afraid to really see it?

whats the point of living here below
if you’re afraid to really mean it?

whats the point of loving Here and Now
if you’re afraid to really show it?

for Love is the reason
always in season
winter and spring
summer and fall
body and blood
branches and roots
muscle and bone
water and stone
for you're never alone
never alone…

I fell in Love today
I fall in love everyday

it beats the darkness away
and gives me a reason to stay…

Daughter of the Stars
06:20

when I came home
from the Mountain of the Sun
I had seen the One before the day was done

and those who say that one can never go that far
are not those who named her daughter of the stars

Shenandoah…

Shenandoah, she moves
on mountain waves of blue
Shenandoah, she lives
through all the Light she gives
Shenandoah, the breathes,
in those who do believe
and yes I do believe
in Freedom

for I believed in the power of the One
through my mind’s eye
I have seen straight into the Sun
for I believe in the power of the One
in my minds eye, I can see straight into the Sun

and those who say, that I will never go that far
are not those who named me Daughter of the Stars

Shenandoah…

For those who named her also say
we are the ones we have been waiting for

Shenandoah…

Freedom

in ecstasy we shall be free
the souls flight will bring the light

Freedom…

The Ascension
02:39

the Body of Light
lives in the Waves
it carries the Source
of all that is made

and when you Ascend
the Light, as it bends
will show you the star
the Source that you are

the Body of Light
wakes at the sound
that travels through Time
to you on the ground

and as you Ascend
the Light comprehends
to call from afar
the God that you are...

Farewell to Shadowlands
05:12

Steady now, Faith in the Vision

Faith in the Vision…

Steady as she stumbles,
for what is false will crumble

still steady as she stumbles
for what is false will crumble

Faith in the Vision…

on lonely mountainside
she sounds her cry
where open sky is sure to purify

Faith in the Vision…

allow the molecules to realign
signaling the line
divine design

Faith in the Vision…

Steady now, steady now
Steady now, its here and now…

Steady now, steady now…
Apocalypse Now, here and Now, here and Now

have no fear, for the Apocalypse is near
but have no fear, for the Apocalypse is near

the revealing of Revelation, in a unified undulation
the Uncovering, the final vow,
now take a bow, steady now

steady now, its Here and Now
Apocalypse Now! Here and Now!

steady now, steady now

She’s steady now

for faith in the Vision…

Time-Freedom
05:44

thank God this way will stay
this way will save the day

to find the Way
by means of Dream

this Dream
this Recurrent Theme
that things aren't what they seem
frees me from Time to flee
all the black insanity

that Dream
that Recurrent Theme
that things aren't what they seem
gives me Vision to see the eternal entropy

for if Dream is Destiny
this Dream was meant to be
here lies Eternity
through this Holy Trinity

for we who are born Free
will seek and find the key
to be the tallest tree
to reach Infinity

thank God this way will stay
this way will save the day
for She knows the Way
and she’ll save the day
for she knows the way

Hey! I know the way!
