Track Name: The Spell
The Spell

It was done so quiet and still
that you did not feel the spell.
in the doorway of your room
things in wishing will be grown

desert birds and burning eyes
when the sun goes down we rise
desert birds and burning eyes
when the sun goes down we rise

It was done so quiet and still
that you did not feel the spell.
when the moon has turned her face
I will be your worst mistake.

desert birds and burning eyes
when the sun goes down we rise
desert birds and burning eyes
when the sun goes down we rise

Burn me when it's my turn
but this will not be reversed
when the moon has turned her face
I will be your worst mistake.
Track Name: Keep Your Secrets
Keep Your Secrets

Out there, as you go,
beware who you know
there are some who will
only bring you sorrow.

Know that there are some
who will not be fair
keep your secrets close
and them unaware

old tricks in new guises,
old ways in disguise
codewords under their breath
Careful what you get

Out there, as you go,
beware all you know
Seeming is not seeing,
look behind the screen:
old cons in new skins,
old games, new machines

Know that there are some
who will not be fair
keep your secrets close
and them unaware

Keep your secrets close,
and them far away
Old tricks all unchanging
under other names
Track Name: Circe's Island
Circe's Island

I will call him and make him a charm
I will call him and make him a charm
in the mirror reflecting the tide
Circe's island, where there is no time

Stay & Stay & Stay
Here on the island
& forget your name
Here on the island

I will call him and make him a charm
waves to carry him far from his home
in the mirror reflecting the tide
Circe's island, where there is no time

You shall have a place crouching at my table
here you will remain.
Loyal Spartan brides, sadly they are waiting
Here you will remain

smudge your faces with signs of your own
leave no traces that you were a man
in the mirror reflecting the tide
Circe's island, where there is no time

You shall have a place crouching at my table
here you will remain.
Stay & Stay & Stay
Here on the island
& forget your name
Here on the island
Here on the island
Here on the island
Track Name: Down Into The Cave
Down into the Cave!

Down into the cave to begin
Witches' animals let us in
and we didn't know
was it day or night?
was it day or night?

Down into the cave to be wise
Witches' animals by my side

and I couldn't say
was it night or day?
was it night or day?

far away from harm,
hanging lanterns light
far away from sun,
hanging lanterns light
hanging lanterns light

here we guarantee to revive
broken darlings & tired eyes
Down into the Cave!
Down into the Cave!
Down into the Cave!
Track Name: In The Sea We Will Stay
In The Sea We Will Stay

I sleep 1000 years
and you are what I dream
I lie awake for hours
and you are all I see

In the sea We will Stay
Millions of Tiny Waves
In the sea We will Stay
Millions of Tiny Waves
He kissed me as we fell
This is just how we live
I kissed him as we fell
This is just how we live.

Under the heavy waves
in shadows turning green
in shadows burning green
a labyrinth of eves

Delusions of a charm
of hands in emerald rings
we two escape alone
away from everything

Pretend this is the world
with ribbons all undone
we two escape alone
away from everyone
Track Name: By Opal Pools
By Opal Pools

Deep in the wood, when we were one,
when we were one, my only,
the rain came down,
melting the ground
and you were flung far from me.

Tear my heart out, Love.

By opal pools, covered in shells
you spoil all my scheming
when rain comes down,
melts solid ground
you hide in a cloud of steam.

By opal pools, lit by the moon,
you ruin all my scheming
night-singing birds,
jasmine in bloom
You hide in a cloud of steam.
Track Name: How You Know
How You Know

How do you know he will always love you ?
What will you do if you get a surprise,
everything out of his mouth is a lie?

la la, la la la, la la la.

How do you know he will always love you
How do you know he will always be true?
What will you do if you get a surprise,
everything between his lips is a lie?


la la, la la la, la la la.

I'll tell you how I know he will be true
all that I know I can see in his eyes
everything else is a miserable lie.

la la, la la la, la la la.
Track Name: In A Story
n a Story

Like a girl in a story
I was lost in a forest
I was lost in a forest
When I was scared and weak
you were there, conveniently,
to lead me farther astray

I said one day you'd drink the tears I cry
I said one day you'd drink the tears I cry
You'll have to test the poisons that you made
the traps you set before you ran away

Like a girl in a story
I was lost in a forest
I was lost in a forest
Further in, further misled
spun into disastrous webs
spun in your disastrous webs

I said one day you'd drink the tears I cry
I said one day you'd drink the tears I cry
In shifting sands your houses all of clay
will be flooded in the troubles that you made
Track Name: Letters In Ashes
Letters in Ashes

Has it always been this way
back to Zoroaster
pretty dresses, barely worn,
thrown into the fire?

Letters in Ashes glow
spelling out where to go
letters in ashes show
where to go, where to go

Are we shipwrecked on the shore
fixed into position?
Things half hinted of are seen
when you pay attention.

Letters in Ashes glow
spelling out where to go
letters in ashes show
where to go, where to go
Track Name: Witches' Ball
Witches' Ball

What was the waltz?
What was the waltz?
You swung around on
the floor like a whirlpool
Look in his eyes
What a surprise
You're falling faster than I did

Can't you hear the forest calling
with low and mysterious cries?
Love is a forest
so come out and dance
at the witches' ball tonight.

What was that thought?
I saw it go by
You can hide all you want
but you can't hide from my sight
Why don't you look?
Uncover your eyes
What is it you are afraid of?

Can't you hear the forest calling
with low and mysterious cries?
Love is a forest
so come out and dance
at the witches' ball tonight.
