Blades of Hassan

Stolen from Family
Taken to Alamut
Locked up and drugged
Left alone with your mind
Simulate death and dieing
woken up
and brought outside.

Do Hassan's bidding
with your knife
heed Hassan's word
Take another life

Taken in by virgins
served a feast in heaven
meet the emissary there
you will do his command
in the best way you can
taking lives of fellow man


Failure, not a choice
thou shall not see the light
Hassan decides,
when that is right
indulging not in your drug
withdrawal your punishment
Do not
Fail Again.


Blades of Hassan is the story of a fictional boy whom is brought into the fold of the world's first group of Assassins. Hassan abducted young children, imprisoned them and simulated the experience of death. Upon awaking the children were brought into a garden by young maidens and served a feast as well as given psychedelic substances. This was done in order to convince them that they had died and gone to heaven but were to be God's hand in striking out and killing those who he would not have in the world. Hassan was the emissary, God's voice to them. Should they fail in an appointed task the addictive drugs would be denied them and they would fall into withdrawal. Thus, failure was discouraged and loyalty ensured.

Music and Lyrics by Xenophon.
