Now, recognize the technique?
A slow tearing down, a removal of all hope, a dissolution of the ego. "I can do nothing, Lord, without you." The psalms of the medieval grimoires serve the same purpose.
And then, A building up, a granting of power, a force for change in the world. The conjurations of the medieval grimoires show much the same effect. "I am above ye in the Most High."
It's the technique the alchemists and magicians of old use. It's classic. The music, the words, everything, just works towards that point. I can feel the change in attitude just from watching it. It's very neat.
