Plate 11
Ulver Lyrics


The ancient Poets animated all sensible objects with Gods or Geniuses, calling them by the names and adorning them with the properties of woods, rivers, mountains, lakes, cities, nations, and whatever their enlarged & numerous senses could percieve.

And particularly they studied the genius of each city & country, placing it under its mental deity.

Till a system was formed, which some took advantage of & enslav'd the vulgar by attempting to realize or abstract the mental deities from their objects; thus began Priesthood.

Choosing forms of worship from poetic tales.
And a length they pronounc'd that the Gods had order'd such things.
Thus men forgot that All deities reside in the human breast.

A Norwegian singer, Stine Grytøyr, refered on the album as "Her". She had been participating in several past projects of Tore Ylwizaker. She also has a website; you can find her solo album there. Hope that helps :)

And at lenghts they pronounc'd that the Gods had order'd such things. Thus men forgot that All Deities reside in the Human breast.
