So April 30th of last year I was baptized into The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Better known as Mormons. I know this is confusing because of all my Pagan stuff and I haven’t really explained ANY of my Mormon bits. It’s really confusing for me which makes it almost impossible to explain. IT’S SYNCRETISM PEOPLE!! Hermes=Jesus. Heavenly Father=Odin. Heavenly Mother=???. Why LDS Christianity and not some other form? Like the United Church of Canada that I grew up with? Apparently it has something to do with how the LDS folks treat their Dead. I have Work to do with Odin, Hermes and Poseidon with the Dead. So I don’t even know yet, I don’t get FULLY immersed in the rituals until my one year anniversary. Anyways. This song is my “Mormon” song because they teach how we are all Brothers and Sisters and how the end is coming but we just need to endure to the end. I dunno, maybe it’s only funny to me but Hermes and I both get the giggles from this song.

“Fallen” by Imagine Dragons

Run for cover

My sense of fear is running thin
Undercover
Just like a candle in the wind

Tell everybody, tell everybody
Brothers, sisters, the ending is coming

Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Now we’re just gonna ride it out

Every morning
I’m staring shadows in the eye
Oh, good morning
Will you just wait until I die?

Tell everybody, tell everybody
Brothers, sisters, the ending is coming

Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Now we’re just gonna ride it out

Tell everybody, tell everybody
Tell everybody, we are fallen
Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Ohhhhh
We are fallen, we are fallen
Now we’re just gonna ride it out

I just want to take it in
Even when your fire runs out
Will you start it up again?
We are fallen

  1. That’s why I’ve decided to be polytheist because I don’t want to give up the heavenly Father completely, but nor do I want to forsake my relationships with the other Gods/Goddesses and Powers. There’s nothing wrong with incorporating mixed religions if that brings you closer to the Divine, and yourself.
