EA: Queen Inanna, step into my room
Shake off the darkness, shake off the gloom
Have a seat, my dear, and talk a while
Tell me, lady, what brings you here?
INANNA: It's been so long, it feels like years
EA: Oh, Inanna, it's good to see you smile
Have a drink with me
Come and feast at this table laden
With foods of love that would tempt any maiden
INANNA: Oh, Ea, I've always liked your style
You know how to make me smile
EA: Taste these fruits, accept these flowers
I could talk to you for hours
I would love to hear what's on your mind
Have a cup of wine
INANNA: I've been told that you possess directions
To make a city realize perfection
EA: Is that the reason, Inanna, that you've come here?
INANNA: Would you be a dear?
EA: Here is the crown, the staff and sceptre...
INANNA: ...Have more wine, for it's as sweet as nectar
EA: Lady, I'm already drunk upon your charms
Come into my arms
INANNA: And what is this?
EA: It is the information
Needed by the gods to raise a nation
To such heights, that it before has never seen
Are you from my dreams?
This reveals the rites of temples
Writing and the fundamentals
Of music, and of art and masonry
How to weave and work with metal
Oh, your skin is like a petal....
INANNA: Oh, Ea, you're looking tired
Come and lie with me beside the fire
By the way, could you make a gift of this?
EA: It's yours for just one kiss....
