based loosely on the poem 'Hymn to Pan' by Aleister Crowley


when i see you
thrilled by a lustrous light
you come careering
out of the darkest night
cos you’re a sight
for sore eyes (2x)

come with the trumpets sounding shrill with fright
come with the flutes and pipes, the mutter of drums
and i wrestle through what i write

no boughs to nestle
my body, weary of empty clasp,
strong as a lion
sharp as the sting of a wasp

but when i kill
we all go down
when i kill
we go down

and i am numb
number one

and i’m awake
in the grip of the snake
the eagle slashes
with beak and claw
and we withdraw

come with the beasts
come with the flutter of man
and you are born
to death on the horn
of the unicorn
and we all go down

and i am numb
number one

and i rave and i rape
and i rip and i rend
world without an end

Ensor Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Ensor is indierock in its purest form, loudQUIETloud, strong choruses, tender verses, crazy lyrics and each instrument delivering what is necessary to come to a great popsong.
Pixies, Pavement, dEUS, Ramones, Smashing Pumpkins, Elastica, and a healthy dose of Amsterdam idiocy.
Practice, perform, play, practice, play, perform, yeah yeah yeah!
