Dead Can Dance - How Fortunate the Man with None

Dead Can Dance wrote:

You saw sagacious Solomon
You know what came of him,
To him complexities seemed plain.
He cursed the hour that gave birth to him
And saw that everything was vain.
How great and wise was Solomon.
The world however did not wait
But soon observed what followed on.
It's wisdom that had brought him to this state.
How fortunate the man with none.

You saw courageous Caesar next
You know what he became.
They deified him in his life
Then had him murdered just the same.
And as they raised the fatal knife
How loud he cried: you too my son!
The world however did not wait
But soon observed what followed on.
It's courage that had brought him to that state.
How fortunate the man with none.

You heard of honest Socrates
The man who never lied:
They weren't so grateful as you'd think
Instead the rulers fixed to have him tried
And handed him the poisoned drink.
How honest was the people's noble son.
The world however did not wait
But soon observed what followed on.
It's honesty that brought him to that state.
How fortunate the man with none.

Here you can see respectable folk
Keeping to God's own laws.
So far he hasn't taken heed.
You who sit safe and warm indoors
Help to relieve our bitter need.
How virtuously we had begun.
The world however did not wait
But soon observed what followed on.
It's fear of god that brought us to that state.
How fortunate the man with none.


I am as is Void.

Re: The Music Thread

Xeno, I first heard How Fortunate the Man with None being covered by a band called Noekk (from album: The Water Sprite). They're hard to describe but I would say they incorporate elements from several genres (prog rock/metal, opera) with very unique vocals. I thought this song stood out from the other songs but only later did I realize it was by another band (Dead Can Dance), who I have yet to hear. 

The song's title (and content) is great because it plays on the idea of the illusory "fortune" of the sleepers who play it safe and can never know true divine wealth (wisdom, courage, honesty) until they wake up, but at the same time it points to the role of humility in developing true wisdom, courage, and honesty in those who take the steps to gain such true fortune.
