The first in a three-part series that closes the album, invoking the two Angels and one Demon that accompany Angus in his spiritual travels.

This first part, Mikael, is preceded by the title “White and Black”. Here Angus is harking back to a time when things were simpler. The trippy music is necessitated by the powerful act of invoking an Angel, and briefly mentions the demon Nemesis.

Ultimately the song is a discourse with the Angel Mikael, among many things apologising for “spitting his name” in the first track of this album.


Thyr, Mir, Arash, Doya
Earth, Air, Fire, Water

I call the Angels down from above.
I summon Demons up from below.


Mikael, I'm sorry, I let you down
I spat your name and I stole your crown.

I sold my soul to the devil,
And made you watch me revel
In lost delights and fancied flights
But now I'm back, the field is level.

I offer you my open wrist,
I'm sorry, I'm sorry I can't resist.

Accept my blood and please forgive me
I want you by my side, stay with me

Stay with me.
