Blue Oyster Cult - Les Invisibles Lyrics



Along the world axis
The Empress lay sleeping
To the rhyme of the, of the, of the star clock
Seven sleepers
Seven sages
Seven ladders to the, to the
Seventh heaven

Seven stars
Had Ursa Major
Tables turning, turning
And rain maker
While the seven
The visitors
All went, all went
A drumming

Dance a Don Pedro
Do the Don Pedro
Games after death
Night dances 'round
Samedi and Petre
In Alchemy

Salute the Four Quarters
Before I leave your eyes
Twinned in the mirror
Les Mesteres come
End me adoration
Before I leave your eyes
World in the mirror
Waters of amnesia come

Do you know (do you know), do you know (do you know)
Do you know (do you know), do you know (do you know)
The court of Eve
Beneath the Polar Mountain
Rose cross and crosser there
Symbols of the swan
Aerial races
In rotation over
The magical casement
Visions of a parallel world

Dance a Don Pedro
Do the Don Pedro
Games after death
Night dances 'round
Samedi and Petre
In Alchemy

Blue Oyster Cult Les Invisibles Comments
  1. choptop

    the 7 invisibles are obviously in reference to the 7 archons, the evil spirits directing the world in gnosticism. maybe imaginos’ true identity as desdinova is the 8th invisible?

    ......SEVEN.7, SEVEN.7,SEVEN,7,SEVEN..........

  18. David Harper

    A very underappreciated album. One their best IMO. I love concept albums.

  19. Kennerhoj

    Always writen in the description 'classic'.. ALRIGHTY!!!

  20. Roger Towle

    Listen closely, whenever the background vocals start repeating "7"......it's always in groups of 7...... As in "7777777"

    Chop Top Sawyer

    Seven times seven is said in groups of seven, that's damn cool.

  21. Jimmie Strick

    hmmm........ why am I thirsty for a 7 and 7?

  22. Edwin Bitsoe

    This entire ALBUM is True BOC,w/ ATTITUDE...... And AUTHORITY!!!!!!!

    decayed leaf

    But most of the band had very little to do with this album

  23. Gerardo Ruben Dentasano

    superbueno...rifasoooo

  24. Steven Wilkinson

    Remember listening to Imaginos for the first when it was released with a touch of trepidation. there were big reputations on the line here (in my eyes) ... then that bit at 2:07 kicked in & I knew this was the Oyster boys, all's well with the world, they still had it, form is temporary & class is PERMANENT ....

    Majyxs

    I get chills at that part.

    Steven Wilkinson

    There are only a handful of rock bands that possess that level of sheer class & BOC have always been one of them ...

    Oddly enough Blind Illusion recorded our second album in Alpha and Omega,in which we were the embodiment or the soul of the healer whom once murdered descends into the hells to destroy Satan.In the Imaginos story BOC storms Heavan with technologySo there I was playing lead guitar on this Imaginos excursion.My fingerprints are all over I am the one you warned me of, The Siege and investiture of baron von Frankensteins castle at wasseria,and In the Presence of another world, as well as rhythm on MAGNA OF ILLUSION

  30. mark biedermann

    I was right outside the engineer room when Buck and Bloom were laying down these vocal tracks.Just amazing!!! I firmly requested to take a solo on this song but Sandy had already been over six years in album Hell. Together we stormed Heavan with technology!Twas then that I learned of the blueprints of the pipeline betwixt Heavan and hell

    This is Buck singing, right? I can never be too sure on the Imaginos album, with all of the people who were involved.

    Kellen Rist

    @Daniel Arnold It sounds like Buck to me.

    David Hardman

    Definitely Buck

    Steven Wilkinson

    Kellen, Just grabbed Popoff's BOC book & after a lot of searching here goes; Eric sings lead vocal on I am the One & In the Presence Of + most of Del Rio. Buck sings Les Invisibles, Astronomy & Magna of Illusion. He also duets with Albert on Blue Oyster Cult. Joey Cerisano sings Siege & Investiture. All makes sense now to my ears ....& Joe says he had virtually no involvement in the album at all bar a few backing vocals.

  49. Albert, Mr. Pessimist

    gran buck, inmortal

  50. tommy black

    a real song

  51. Oliver Brooks

    Les Invisibles, still as relevant today as it was in the seventies but as they are the eternal ones who move behind the scenes it was always going to be so. NWO anyone?

  52. elf man

    Great Guitar work from Buck. But what else is new. This CD is genius.

    elf man

    Thanks.  really cool.

    Steven Wilkinson

    Meek, Albert was voted out of the band on 20th August 1981 during a tour of England ... an update for you )

    11bg00

    Its not entirely true that Albert and Sandy wrote the entire album. Eric Bloom wrote the original versions of Subhuman (Blue Oyster Cult) and Astronomy that these versions are based off of. Buck also helped rewrite a couple of the songs when he was brought in to sing, and he did play guitar on at least a couple tracks. I believe Joe Bouchard also wrote or co-wrote one of the songs.

    Of course there were so many people involved with this album its hard to keep track of who did what.

    Steven Wilkinson

    Eric didn't write the original version of Astronomy, the music was started by Joe & finished by Albert using Sandy's wonderful lyrics ...

    11bg00

    Okay yeah. I was probably thinking of a different song that used Pearlman's lyrics that wasn't on this album. But the other stuff I said was true.

  53. drithligh

    All those "sevens" in this song reminds me, every time, of Stephen King's nightmarish story titled "1408."

    "This is nine! Nine! This is nine! Nine! This is Ten! Ten! We have killed your friends! Every friend is now dead! This is six! Six!"

    elf man

    Steven King was a huge fan.He does an intro for the song  Astronomy / Imaginos version,Really cool . On YOU Tube

  54. Basil II Macedonia

    Seven sages.

  55. Richard Holmes

    Awesome song! Sounding like Donald Roeser when singing is awesome too!

    Can't even get enough.

  61. Magnus Soevgaard

    Fucking awesome Blue Oyster Cult they have so many great songs.

    Zenyatta Mondatta

    There’s not a bad song by them; there may be an occasional weak song, or a song that requires a lot of deep critical thought to understand, but never a bad one. BÖC forever!!!!

    It is a magical induction to teach you how to ascend to a higher world.

    love them more than sin, one of their many pigeons

  66. Magnificent Failure

    I'm so glad I saw them on this tour at the Wiltern Theater in LA. I've been to 20+ of their shows and that was the only time I've heard them do this song "Live".

  67. nate556

    I liked John Shirly's lyrics too. Yeah, the later albums are missing some members of the band. I can hear the difference, but.. I like them throughout.

  68. 1serious0mfr

    I love boc i have most over there albums it sucks that you have to pretty much search for their music they don't play them on the radio or pandora there music is purely amazing

  69. Thad Rosemyer

    BOC keeping creepy hard rock alive in 1988

  70. June Hursh

    BOC has always been in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the eyes of the fans! Screw the inductions, we all know they were there already for a long time. Long Live BOC!

  71. Basil II Macedonia

    Makes a first for me!! LOL

  72. GrekuSigh8

    Superb Track-superb album, its mystic !

  73. moondoogle

    To each their own, I suppose. So how is your band doing?

  74. moondoogle

    Actually, most of this album was written by Pearlman and Bouchard, long before Spectres was even released.

  75. jseabo77

    Should be One of the top 5 B.O.C. songs!!!

    Steven Wilkinson

    For most other bands than BOC it would .... with this great band would it even make their Top 30 ???

    Dank Sinatra

    Steven Wilkinson Honestly,

    this, Dont Fear The Reaper, Astronomy (Secret Treaties), This ain't the Summer of Love (Which have shockingly similar intros), and Dancing in the Ruins are my top 5

  76. Dreco

    Boc " fucking auto correct!

  77. Dreco

    why can't they make music like this anymore i would die for a other album like this sucks hearing the best when your young hard to find new music now nothing seems close to boy standards.

  78. bassmanjoe

    Sounds like Buck on guitar on this one.

  79. bassmanjoe

    Nobody compares to BOC, originality to the fullest. They had their own sound and style.

  80. bassmanjoe

    Fucking brilliant

  81. bassmanjoe

    I'll take Donald over Tony anyday, just my opinion.

  82. towarka91

    wow what a great sound, this guitar and drums give me goosebumps.

  83. Jamie Laszlo

    This HAS to be where Ghost got their idea for their CD...

    Useful Entertainment

    Jamie Laszlo dude I said the same shit. I knew I wasn't the only one who thought that

  84. Basil II Macedonia

    Classic, classic track!!

  85. Mundos alternos

    @BaronBlood138 Aldo Nova co-wrote the song "Take Me Away" with Blue Oyster Cult. Well that i know.

    @gothsdontcry actually its by Sandy Pearlman and Albert Bouchard, all of it cept Astronomy, they did it while Albert was out of the band as a solo project, record co would not release it, only as a BOC, so they reunited, but it didn't last, writing credits were added on the BOC album, Alberts demo is available from time to time do a search, its really good
