Lyrics

Shattering Sea
05:44
That is not my blood on the bedroom floor
That is not the glass that I threw before

He gets his power from tide and wave
The grains of sand are my domain
His tempest surged and angry flesh
And through my arms formed a sea of glass

Shattering sea
Closing my eyes
Shattering sea
Closing my eyes
Shattering sea
Closing my eyes

Every line
Every curve
Every twist
Every turn
Of every brutal word

Every turn (every line)
Every line (every curve)
Every twist (every turn)
Every curve
Of every brutal word

That is not my blood on the bedroom floor
That is not the glass that I threw before
Snowblind
03:19
Some get SnowBlind with the daylight
But then with the Night for once see clearly
Through fox's eyes, I've been watching you
How do you free your mind so that you're not confined
By our concept of what we call Time?
Follow me
Call me
Anabelle

Some get SnowBlind with the daylight
But then with the Night for once see clearly
I will follow you, Anabelle

Just imagine Him up there upon that hill
Over 3,000 years from now til then
A key fragment of you and him
And one I must now bring back

I'm Wondering

Were you giants or friends?
Even the Morrigan?
Lovers or Enemies?
One or all of these?
Battle of Trees
08:49
Our language of love
the Battle of Trees
we fought side by side
No one had more
sharper consonants than you love
and my vowels, well, were trusted

First comes the Birch
Rowan followed by the Ash
then through the Alder she forms
and merges with Willow

The Hawthorne blossoms
as the Oak guards the door
"She" is the hinge on which the year swings
He courts the Lightning Flash and Her

Summoning the spirits through incantations
ou said "the Thunder God seems to have,
in our enemies, his own Laureate"
But we knew The Furies held the Holly sacred

We were insulated
in a circle of words we'd drawn
with wisdom sent from nine Hazels
a Rowan fire and a Willow rod

At ten comes the Vine
that generates bramble wine
The constant change of the Night Sun
a song in the blood of the white bull

Our language of love
the Battle of Trees
we fought side by side
No one had more
sharper consonants than you, love
and my vowels, well, were trusted

From Ivy leaves
is an ale that can unveil
The hidden meanings and serpents
only revealed through visions

Yes, vowels could insert
"A" was for the Silver Fir
the Firs or Gorse then came next
with Heather at her most passionate

The White Poplar's gift
to the souls of the dead
a promise that it was not the end
But for the Vine the Yew, it's coffin

Vowels and consonants
the power of trees
the power they hold
the power of prose
So when the church began to twist the old myths
They built their own Tower of Babel
from Ulster to Munster

The Reed gave way then
to the Elder
The Earth turns her wheel
so that Night follows Day
From Dawn to Dawn
From Winter to Winter
The day the Ash had power
over the Alder

Our language of love
the Battle of Trees
we fought side by side
then he said to me,
"I've dodged bullets
and even poisoned arrows
only to be felled by the blade
of a vowel"
Fearlessness
06:37
Fearlessness blew in with the wind
waking up to greet the sun
we sailed on like the ancient ones
into the night underworld
we knew dangers would come
i had faith in both of us

Listen to your heart
(you can hear me)
listen to your heart
(you can hear me)

Day turned night when he questioned
why can't you balance the sky?
souless storms have sent watchers
with bladeless weapons to fight

Teams of horses of the brine
followed his cries through the fire
demons of the wild hissed with the wind
did you listen?

Listen to your heart
(can you hear me?)
listen to your heart
(can you hear me?)

Fearlessness soon reminded me
you must be stronger then they
cautioning there those who live
to be cruel for the fun of it

He let in a dark companion
that orbited between us
his siren friends convinced him that love
was no match against storms to come
their songs inflamed by doubt
fearlessness drowned them out

Teams of horses of the brine
followed his cries through the fire
demons of the wild hissed with the wind
did you listen?

Listen to your heart
can you hear me?
listen to your heart
can you hear me?

Did we begin without knowing it?
to find fault in every gift
then that was when the blame began
what were once two forces joined
in fearlessness
Cactus Practice
04:33
Maybe he and I
are like a pair of Suns that are captured
Maybe he and I are like a pair of Suns that are captured
Eternally linked into chasing each others' spin
Eternally linked into chasing each others' spin
Bound by beliefs that have become steel cords
Why the disharmony? Let's re-sing my world
With a harmonic defiance, I'll face this

I'd like to induct you into the drink of the
cactus practice, cactus
Cactus?
Practice
Will you induct me into the drink of the cactus
practice, cactus?
Cactus
Practice

Are you saying I'm
Reactive but I can work with it Doll-face
Every couple has their own version of what they
call the truth?
Every couple has their own version of what they call
the truth
Call all that lies beneath both stories
back to my fire
Embrace what you may find
With a harmonic defiance, I'll face this

It's time to induct you into the drink of the
cactus practice, cactus
Cactus?
Cactus
Practice
I'd like to induct you into the drink of the
cactus practice
Cactus?
Cactus
Practice
Will you induct me into the drink of the

Star Whisperer
09:57
Lost star whisperer
where
where
where have you gone?
Lost star whisperer
will your Cloud Riders come?
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life

Night warns of an eastern threat
North calls reinforcements from the west
Lost all reason guarded by the wise
sing to life the Seven Lords of Time
Lost star whisperer
end for your Cloud Riders to come
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life

then I heard you scream
from the other side of the mountain
I saw a "you" I didn't want to see
I heard you scream from the other side of the mountain

then I heard you scream from the other side of the
mountain
I saw a "me" I didn't want to see
I heard you scream from the other side of the mountain
Lost star whisperer
where
where have you gone?

Forged of fire and song
you warn Hate shadows Love
Eight shadows long
why
why have you locked up your sky?
Night Sky whisper me back to life
Job's Coffin
03:36
Natashya Hawley:
Job's coffin looks down
Job's coffin looks down

To see what mankind
is gonna do

there is a grid
of
disempowerment

all forces
are being called
to dismantle this

as Job's coffin looks down
Job's coffin looks down

to see
what you're gonna do

there exists
a power of old
who wanted earth
to be controlled

But She
and She alone
is her own

She is her own

Job's coffin looks down
Job's coffin looks down

Tori Amos:
I cant be proud,
proud of what I have done

since time
why do we women
give ourselves away?

we give ourselves away
thinking somehow
that will make him
want to stay

make him stay

Job's coffin looks down
at the day you
shut your power down

you must uncreate
that
destructive tendency

let your fire
start to
heal the fury
sister its time
to bring it
back online

as Job's coffin looks down
Job's coffin looks down

to see what you're gonna do
to see what you're gonna do
Nautical Twilight
03:24
As the day gave way
To Nautical Twilight
I turned my back on
The force of which I am made
I am bound and gagged
Rupturing a delicate balance
When I left my world for his

Day after day, as my city fades
And is swallowed by his sea

She is boundless
Even breaking on the beach

Every alchemist
Knows fusion and fission
Can unify or drive a force to split
He has been possessed to drink of the spices
From the east by his liquid mistress
Which then pushed me into the lair of uranium
She divides time between greed and his twin, Tyranny

Day after day cities are betrayed
And the earthly sons lay their blade

And she is boundless
But by then she has been frayed

As the night gives way
To Nautical dawn I can see I must activate
The force of which I am made
Your Ghost
05:44
You've left your ghost until tomorrow
and then he must be sent
to a strange address in the Mediterranean

I met your ghost he has proposed
I met your ghost he has proposed
he needs some time alone
then he'll stay with me
then he'll visit your seven seas

Please leave me your ghost
I will keep him from harm
Although I've learned that
you were wounded
My forest of glass
caused enough damage
as your tear satin crashing

My ambers and my blues
could have another use
Your ghost has shown me
our primroses could survive the frost
if a gentle rivulet of flame
is sustained tenderly

He'll play a Beatles tune
me, more a Bach fugue
Is this such a great divide
between your world and mine?
They both can purify
and heal what was cut and bruised

Please leave me your ghost
I will keep him from harm
I understand that you've been wounded
My ambers and my blues
could have another use
please leave me your ghost
just leave me your ghost
I will keep him warm
I will keep him warm
Edge of the Moon
04:57
Here on the edge of the moon
Running from our future
As I look back
Your heart grabs my hand
Asking me
To remember a vow you made
That would always take
Me to the edge of the moon
Circling pictures of you

The time you sailed on
Under the diamond eye
Or for a dolphin who for a song had
Crossed night
To bring back your bride

Under a warm Tuscan sun
No cliff was too steep for us
Here at the edge of the moon
I surf a curve thrown by you

And did you teach me to fly
Past your marmalade sky
So that after the waning and waxing of love
You could find
Me at the edge
Here at the edge
Me at the edge of
The edge of the moon

Now I'm going back
Past that marmalade sky
'Cause you've got my waxing and waning
As primitive girls
You can stir the embers of the Lucy
Inside of my soul

Now I'm going back
Past that marmalade sky
'Cause you've got my waxing and waning
As primitive girls
You can stir the embers of the Lucy
Inside of my soul

Now I'm going back
Past that marmalade sky
'Cause you've got my waxing and waning
As primitive girls
You can stir the embers of the Lucy inside
The Lucy inside
Stir the Lucy inside of my soul

Here at the edge
Me at the edge of
The edge of the moon
The Chase
03:06
Tori:
Out there are hunters

Anabelle:
Let's say predators

Tori:
I have weapons
That could destroy them

Anabelle:
You must out-create
It's the only way
I am the hunter
And the hunted
Joined together

Tori:
You create duality

Anabelle:
And neutrality
I must leave you
With the Fire muse
Show her the riddle
It is serious
If you lose
Out there

Tori:
I'll be the hare

Anabelle:
Then I'm the greyhound
Chasing after you
Tori:
Then I will change my frequency
To a fish that thinks

Anabelle:
Then you will find yourself
In the paws
Of the otter
Near her jaws

Tori:
Then I'll grow my wings
As a flying thing

Anabelle:
Flying thing, you be warned
I'm the falcon

Tori:
Watch me change
Into a grain of corn

Anabelle:
A grain of corn
Hear the alarm
In your head
I'm the hen
Black and red
And you're in my barn
They would have won
Use your head or you'll be dead
Night of Hunters
05:37
Fire Muse:
Rose so red
this night of hunters
find love instead of their
blood by your thorn

tori:
Rose so red
this night of hunters
Find love instead of their
blood by my thorn

Fire Muse:
Dark forces are out there gathering

tori:
Dark forces are out there gathering

Fire Muse:
Some hunt for power
others to invade children's dreams

tori:
Some hunt for power
others to invade children's dreams

tori:
They must pay this night of hunters

Fire Muse:
Find Love instead of their
blood by your thorn

tori:
Find Love instead of their
blood by my thorn

Holy Father, why not ask forgiveness
from the Land?
Spirit to Spirit
End this suffering
Spirit to Spirit
Soul to Soul
They stole the dreams

Fire Muse:
of the children
By distorting what Love means

Watching Over
Keeping Watch

Keeping watch over children's dreams
the ancient seven sisters above

Tuning the frequency

Keeping watch over children's dreams
The ancient seven sisters above

tori:
Holy Father, you ask forgiveness
from the land

Fire Muse:
Sacred Mother, you are released
from your chains

tori:
Spirit to Spirit
The children's dreams

Fire Muse and tori:
must now be reclaimed
Spirit to Spirit
changing the frequency
Spirit to Spirit
Soul to Soul

Carry
04:07
Love, hold my hand
Help me see with the dawn
That those that have left
Are not gone
But they carry on
As stars looking down
As nature's sons
And daughters of the heavens
You will not ever be forgotten by me
In the procession of the mighty stars
Your name is sung and tattooed now on my heart
Here I will carry, carry, carry you
Forever
You have touched my life
So that now
Cathedrals of sound are singing, are singing
The waves have come to walk with you
To where you will live in the land of you,
Land of you
You will not ever be forgotten by me
In the procession of the mighty stars
Your name is sung and tattooed now on my heart
Here I will carry, carry, carry you
Here I will carry, carry, carry you
Forever.
