Track Name: The Mistletoe Bride
The Mistletoe Bride

Winters falling eve
All the life that’s ever breathed
Comes to the fading hall
Wrapped in a bridal wreath
She sings with glee & mirth
Danced by the open hearth
Played out her final game
In a faded bridal wreath

Seek, seek, where can she hide?
Seek, seek, for the mistletoe bride
Weep, weep, where does she reside?
Weep, weep, for the mistletoe bride

For ages laid down
Fine lace to ashes
All alone, a casket home
In her faded bridal wreath
Moons passed so many times
A silent soul for century’s
Still clutching to her gown
In her faded bridal wreath

The sands of time have passed
Long shadows have been cast
Forgotten dreams
Of a faded bridal wreath
Then they opened an old box
Unpicked its rusty locks
Still inside clutching her gown
In a faded bridal wreath

Seek, seek, where can she hide?
Seek, seek, for the mistletoe bride
Weep, weep, where does she reside?
Weep, weep, for the mistletoe bride

Track Name: Call the Morrigu
Call the Morrigu

Prophetess of war
Dark sister of night
Black feathers fly
Symbol of shattered skies

Temptress of man
All you embrace is wild
Red hot in lust
She’s a warrior’s child

She is the death that comes
Seeking eternal love
When her vision’s clear
Your know your time is near

Dark sister of fortune and fate
Phantom queen of final embrace
Take me now to natures centre
Into the mound forever to enter
Call the Morrigu
Call the Morrigu
Call the Morrigu
Call the Morrigu

Priestess of fate
Weaver of prophecies
Washing the blood
Staining our destinies

Raven sorceress
Triple faced queen of night
Winder of threads
Enemy to the light

Morrigan, Babd, Macha, Nemain, Fea, Danu, Morgan Le Fay X4

Soaring battle crow
Hiding her mysteries
Black witch, dark moons
Shadow our histories

Lover of Lugh
She’s the Phantom Queen
Fortelling war
Now as she’s always been…
Track Name: I am the Witch
I am the Witch
Gaze up to the moon
Form a pentacle
Raise the knife and chalice
Call so mote it be

Light the flame of southern sun
Breathe the air of the windy East
Cold earth in the northern wastes
Rivers flow in the western hills
Cast the circle, raise the cone
Settle down by a standing stone
Call the consort to your side
Maiden, Mother and Crone

I am the Witch X 8

Backing (cunning & wise, flies through the skies, As old as the sea, so mote it be)

Bathe in naked starlight
Ride the besom broom
Close your eyes and feel it
Chant the blessed be
Track Name: Elysium
Elysium

So shallow the waters
Washed over my soul
Bearing me down
To the abyss

So fleeting the moments
I’m no longer whole
Slowly I drown
Into the mist

My journey is over
Elysium’s rest
Shading my eyes
The eternal bliss

So pure in the snowdrift
The crimson draws out
As fortune has died
Death shall I kiss
Track Name: Widdershins

Track Name: Artorius Rex
Artorius Rex

Asleep beneath an island mound
A dragon lies in shrouds of dust
For centuries sleep was mantle worn
As hope above had lost all trust
But horns will blow and banners fly
Again the sword from stone held high
The lady in the lake shall rise again
And the merlin he will cry

Artorius Rex
Once and future king
Artorius Rex
All freedom is within
Artorius Rex
We’ll find the faith to win
Artorius Rex
Bring us to Camelot

Shake the earth and break the crust
Awake the knights to life are thrust
Step into light brave lords of right
To fight the dark and shaded night
It was foretold he would return
Beset with enemies we turn
To wake the dragon, within us stir
To hold again Excalibur

But horns will blow and banners fly
Again the sword from stone held high
The lady in the lake shall rise again
And the merlin he will cry
Track Name: Where Shadows Fall
Where Shadows Fall

Faint spark of light on the horizon
Ash that falls begins to break
Awoke from slumber in denial
Scanned the ocean, wide awake

Rusty seas of dying homelands
Crashed on shores of cursed chance
Open wounds that torment always
Spawn the tears of fate’s old dance

What have we done to man,
why can’t it come again,
will it all have to end, Now
Are we so damnable?,
All is corruptible,
all that we throw away…

What have we done to earth,
sowing the very curse,
Blighting its own rebirth, now
Can we be saved at all,
before the shadows fall,
Where the shadows fall

Arise the pillars of our shaming
Sound the chimes that crack the bell
Eternal slaves in our obedience
Chained up in an empty hell

Old script around the cup of madmen
Pain’s chalice, drink it to the end
Bled out, the wolves still serve the masters
Fall before the temples they defend
