Marchosias Music Video 5 March 2020

Marchosias is said to be a fallen angel (demon); one of King Solomon’s spirits that he invoked during the 900s BCE to secure his kingdom. It is said that Solomon promised Marchosias to return him to Heaven after 1,200 years of faithful service to Man on Earth. Marchosias appears in animal form as a wolf with griffin’s wings and a serpent’s tail, spitting fire from his mouth. However, at the command of an Exorcist, he takes on the form of a woman. The short film opens with a scene of downtown Portland, Oregon, and Marchosias is in female form playing the keyboard. On the steps of the Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland is a man playing the guitar and wearing a wolf mask. He is singing about the conundrum if angels and devils were actually one and the same and postures whether that would explain all the things that are wrong with the world today. The man decides that he needs to escape from the city and travel into the woods where Marchosias is playing her keyboard to the same melody. On the way, the train stops at a station where a tragedy has taken place. The man exclaims, “It’s not me I’m worried about, but rather you and what you’ll do with that gun. What if all the angels and devils were one?” The man ventures into the woods near where Marchosias is. He stops and asks out loud whether someone is just poking fun at our expense or whether his venture is just a pun. Is the man the Exorcist? The final scene shows the train departing into the sunset and we are left not knowing what becomes of the man or Marchosias.

Marchosias Lyrics:
What if all the angels and devils were one
All those days we spent worrying over what would come
All we’ve ever known and believed was wrong
What if it’s too late and the realization’s already begun
in the people
In the crowds
Now I’m ready to run
It’s not me I’m worried about
But rather you and what you’ll do with that gun
What if all the angels and devils were one
Now I wonder what will happen when the last bell’s rung
Are we being punished or is someone just poking fun
At our expense
At the cost of
some pun
What happens when we all die
And when angels and demons unite
