HTP SONG

for pharaonic chronology and other key Jangleland links see Chronology of Jangleland Pharaohs



Such is the nature of the blog that posts get shoved down when new material is uploaded, so this is just a repeat to get the song link back to the top.


LISTEN WHILE YOU EXPLORE THE BLOG: The most recent version of the song Hathor In Tranquility with Papyrus can be found, thanks to the hosting of Andrew Cowper, at http://www.bloat.plus.com/WillSong.mp3
LYRICS:

5-HoTeP

I have tasted satisfaction from my head down to my toes
Contentment like cows munching where the tall papyrus grows
My love her beauty’s like the flowers that grace the heavens’ lawns
Beauty like the goddess with the Sun between her horns

[This verse connects to the Egyptian conception of the Field of Satisfaction as the afterlife paradise of the West where the goddess Hathor was depicted as a bovine (with Sundisk between her horns) amongst the papyrus plants, just as the Egyptians observed cows munching contentedly in the papyrus marshes beside the Nile.)

Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(Encircling Ra)
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(The Morning Star)

[Hathor = Egyptian goddess of dance, joy, sensuality, and inhebriation. Not Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds, (LSD) but Hathor in Tranquility with Papyrus - HTP, which is both the written form of the Egyptian word for satisfaction/contentment, "Hotep", while also being the chemical name of the amino acid which is a precursor to the chemicals of satisfaction and relaxation, serotonin and melatonin. The Morning Star, Venus, encricles the Sun, Ra being the Egyptian Sungod and an essay later in this blog explains how quite probably Hathor was associated with this star of morning even before her assimilation with Venus-Aphrodite. See The Serpent Path Around the Sun ]


In Fields of Satisfaction where the grass is high as trees
Have you heard it whisper when it’s blowing in the breeze
Or seen the ibis wading where the blue green water flows
Down amongst the marshes where the tall papyrus grows?

Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(Encircling Ra)
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(The Morning Star)

HoTeP is a seed of joy held in the griffin’s claw
5-HoTeP is up for sale down in your local store
Hathor makes the milk of flowers and of the sycamore
And makes the jewelled dancers dance around the dancing floor

[The Griffin here is the African plant with Latin name Griffonia from which the chemical 5L-HTP is extracted. This is a potent form of HTP, one which is highly effective in entering the brain. Sold in high street health food stores.]


Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(Encircling Ra)
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(The Morning Star)

See their lightly stepping feet and hear the sistrum shake
Make jubilance at twilight for the Sun-encircling snake (encircling Ra)
Tonight we shall attain HoTeP just like the night before
Tasting satisfaction every eve forever more.

[Reference here to Hathor as goddess of dance. The sistrum was a rattle with metal disks attached as with a tamborine. It was sacred to the goddess Hathor, and she was oftern depicted holding it. Additionally, sistrums were often made decorated with the head of Hathor. "Make jubilance at twilight" comes from an Egyptian song sung at a festival of Hathor (see essay later in blog) The Sun-encircling snake is Hathor in her form of the Eye of Ra. Again, see essay later in blog.]

Sister shakes the sistrum and snakes her way around the Sun
Sister shakes the sistrum and snakes her way around the Sun
Sister shakes the sistrum and snakes her way around the Sun
Sister shakes the sistrum and snakes her way around the Sun

The Beatle rolls the Rolling Stone of fire across the sky
The Beatle rolls the Rolling Stone of fire across the sky
The Beatle rolls the Rolling Stone of fire across the sky
The Beatles and the Rolling Stones and Hathor in the sky
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(Encircling Ra)
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
Hathor in Tranquillity with Papyrus
(The Morning Star)

[Reference here to the myth of the scarab god Kheper who pushes the Sun disk across the sky. You may recognize the deliberate musical Stones reference in the guitar riff: "You never listen to my advice..."]


Lotus blue, et Lavendarum
Valerian Passiflora
Salvia Griffonia Somniferum

(repeat ‘till fade)

[A Faux-Latin Gregorian chant, referencing various relaxing and euphoric plants, such a Egyptian Blue Lotus, Lavendar oil, Valerian root, Passion flower leaves, Salvia (sage - I'm thinking of Calry Sage oil, not "Salvia Divinorum"), Griffonia (source of L5-HTP), and Sominferum, used to denote the sleepiest kind of poppy but here used as a suffix for Griffonia, with the same meaning - "Sleepy Griffonia".]

Like listening to a dancing cow.
Needs a bouncing ball to go along with the lyrics.
Put it on you tube with animated Hathor!
