All human life is sunk deep in untruth, including my own human life. My very existence has its foundations in lies and errors; that is to say, the “customs” of my family and my upbringing have their foundation in lies, errors, and superstitions.
Exposing the old lies told by the priest,
She’s promulgating the Age of the Beast—
The great lion-serpent She’s riding upon!
I raise up the cup and adore Babalon!
