Track Name: It's Easier
open up the door and turn the page
put the past behind you light the sage

its easier once you begin
release and take the leap
all the truth you have within
inside the key you keep

all the roads are winding back there
no one is going nowhere

its easier once you begin
release and take the leap
all the truth you have within
inside the key you keep

begin
Track Name: La Luna
la luna

la luz se refleja
a traves de suenos
caminando caminando
entre mundos
entre mundos

la luna la luna

cada cada cada canción
que escuche, que escuche
me recuerda que todos somos hijos
de la noche

la luna la luna

i am walking
between the worlds
as light reflects
in my dreams
and every song
that i hear
reminds me
we are all
children of the night
Track Name: Edge To Edge
The writing on the wall is not at all what is written in the sky
Winds move on in and the years pass us by
The pass us by
Picture this~ the most picturesque perfect sunset
of an Autumn night
Now sunken in to the darkest eye
That lacks the slightest candle light

Chorus:
How does the moon pull the wave?
From edge to edge the sea was red
How does the fool teach the sage?
From edge to edge the time had fled
How does the scholar explain
To those of us that see the dead?

The highest call in the distance,
we all can feel this friction thread
Like two suns shining in the night that's now dead
The night is dead
Imagine this~
the imagination inflicts magick on the present mindset
Now programmed into a player's trite
That lacks the insight of what is right

Chorus:
How does the moon pull the wave?
From edge to edge the sea was red
How does the fool teach the sage?
From edge to edge the time had fled
How does the scholar explain
To those of us that see the dead?

And we all walk this together!
And we all walk this together!
And we all walk this together!
Track Name: In My Womb
Im Holding These Keys
In My Womb, In My Womb, In My Womb (x3)
And I let Them Go

Im holding These Seeds
In My Womb, In My Womb, In My Womb (x3)
And I Let Them Go

Im Holding These Dreams
In My Womb, In My Womb, In My Womb (x3)
And I Let Them Go

Im Holding These Keys
In My Womb, In My Womb, In My Womb (x3)
And I let Them Go
Track Name: Run Little Lady
Bout to be the last to run
Bout to be the one unhung
Bout to see the clasp undone
I have got to share this with you judge

Bout to see that I’m the one
Out to seek the rising sun
Opened up my mouth and sung
What I’ve been singing all along

Cuz you plead with you mother, plead with your mother
That path is no good

Run little lady, the cops are gonna come
Gotta run tell your mother to go hide the gun
Mother say “Child, what you talking about?
There ain’t no such thing like that inside this house!”
You plead with you mother, you plead with you mother
For the sake and the lives of your sister, your brother
And you pray that she’ll do the right thing

I was only six years old
I would set the day they’d go
Walking in my suede shoes oh
I would have walked for miles and miles
Wouldn’t see the day they’d know
Wouldn’t be a child-like flow
Never had the right to go
Now I’m seeking a way now judge

Cuz you plead with you mother, plead with your mother
That path is no good

Run little lady, the cops are gonna come
Gotta run tell your mother to go hide the gun
Mother say “Child, what you talking about?
There ain’t no such thing like that inside this house!”
You plead with you mother, you plead with you mother
For the sake and the lives of your sister, your brother
And you pray that she’ll do the right thing

Mother, mother I love you so much
And I know you’ll do right in front of the judge
Mother, mother I love you so much
And I know you do right in front of the Almighty Judge
Track Name: Bone Shaman Woman
Bone Shaman Woman
dance out the hate in my heart
smile with your bleeding womb
on the earth
giving birth to me
over and over again

Crow Sighted Mystic
come and take me on your flight
once more
our old way of communicating
its changing
lets make amends
before it all

breaks loose
breaks loose
breaks loose
breaks loose

Bone Shaman Woman
shake your fist at the fire
weep out the salt of wounds
from the core
may there be no more

Old Story Keeper
fall to the sound of the beat of this drum
whisper your unspoken tales
through your undulating trance

break us loose
break us loose
break us loose
break us loose

Bone Shaman Woman

Track Name: Melt Away
When my walls melt away
i can let you in
i don't want to pull away too soon
to prevent this from happening
when my walls melt away
i can get hooked in
its difficult to begin
yet so familiar once i am in it

don't wanna let it go
but i don't wanna hold on
don't wanna let it go
but i don't wanna hold on
don't wanna let it go
but i don't wanna hold on
don't wanna let it go
but i don't wanna hold on

my walls are crumbling
yet its so quiet
these truths
listen to my heart cryin'
ready to receive the mysteries
retrieved under ground
Track Name: Scarlet Moon
there was a stillness in november
i remember scorpion skies
and the streets all filled with the shadows
called from the hallows of the black mothers cries
she screamed out her story in tangled tongues
the ones you'd never speak into sight
she lured out her holy blood
flooding the night painting satellites

it was a dark moon
i was a dark dark moon
it was a dark moon
it was a scarlet moon

lilith burned the poems she wrote
in the fires of a hearth that was spreading its wings
and the feathers fanned fast the rising smoke
invoking the goddess scrying her coming dreams
and no she did not apologize
for giving her blood to the earth
she did so with mercy in her eyes
for the lies lingering in the depths of eves heart

it was a dark moon
i was a dark dark moon
it was a dark moon
it was a scarlet moon

precious eve
lament no more
your curious nature
condemn no more
your myths of death and darkness
repent no more
this crimson tide rises for you
blood mysteries revived for you
saint of seduction
and mother of sin
this song it is alive for you

it was a dark moon
i was a dark dark moon
it was a dark moon
it was a scarlet moon
Track Name: Child Of Magdalene
Ave Maria Magdalena (hail mary magdalene)

Doleo (sorry)

por tu nombre immunda factus (your name was made dirty)

in villa et deo (in the house of God)
por tu sanguine- (for your blood)

cujus una stilla salvum facere- (which a single drop for sinners split)
totum mundum quit ab omni sceler- (cleans the whole world)

ave maria magdelena
ave maria magdelena

Sisters of Mercy

penance or perish

Sisters of Charity

Sisters of our lady
penance or perish
sisters of magdalene

a maiden girl
auburn hair, lavish curls
father her sent away
too much a temptress
quiet your voice child
quiet you body
quiet your soul
for this silent ritual

go now to the house of fallen women
they were all children like me

we were unwed mothers
we were broken daughters, broken by our brothers
we were punished for the sins of a flesh
we knew so little about

go now to the house of fallen women
they were all children like me

Sisters of Mercy

penance or perish

Sisters of Charity

Sisters of our lady
penance or perish
Sisters of Magdalene

Magdalene repented, they said

delivering her prayers
by severing her ties
to the pleasures of man
seduction of youth
sin by association
hide now your breast child
shame upon your covenant

keep it clean keep it clean
wash your sins from these sheets
how dirty they’ve become

stains upon our history
stains upon our saviors name

go now to the house of fallen women
they were all children like me

hush now your voice child
hush now your bodies
hush now your soul
for this silent
for this silent, 
for the silent ritual

Ave Maria Magdalena
Ave Maria Magdalena
Track Name: Hammer Of Witches
You told me of a night the water would not run hot

and she brought in a pot for the bath,
it was boiling at the brim

an accident, the scalding water spilled unlocking secrets in

souls memories released in screams as it touched your skin

)
all at once the burning flooded your mind, back to a time

when women were burned, matches were struck
as the clock struck noon

townfolk gathered to see you bloom

to see you bloom, bloom in the flames of

what would become of those who practiced magic

what would become of those who knew the ways of the moon
these, the memories, seeds laid in our fertile minds,

of tragedies, screams sounding in the halls of the time



Hammer of witches, Pounding, Pounding 

Hammer of witches, Burning alive

Hammer of witches, Merging as One with the Light

Malleus Maleficarum



I was there too in that time of darkness and fire

I clearly recall seeing your delicate face that day in the crowd

I was exemplified, tied and nude, high upon the pyre

The sound of the wood was incredibly loud

I remember the look in her eyes as the old woman stared

I remember the sun reflecting in her granddaughters hair,

I remember the sweet smell of bay leaves on the wind

carrying the prayers we made at the chalice well
and the secrets therein 




And he was there too, watching the scene with such countenance

this man we both knew, biblically, a lord of the old ways,

a figure of dreams, denouncer of craft, denouncer of providence

adept at spinning his wheels to feed off the craze 



Hammer of witches, Pounding, Pounding

Hammer of witches, Burning alive

Hammer of witches, Merging as One with the Light

Malleus Maleficarum

in

in his mind, held he the sacred blade
it was carved of crystal stone
into your side, he thrust and contact he made

but still you avenged my death in blood and bone



Sister my sister, the flames that we took

the stakes they were wrought by the moon cream we caught

Sister my sister, the cages we shook

the fortunes we sought, the fruits were all rot

Sister my sister, the armor we wear

the burden we bear, the love we left there 

Sister my sister, the stories we tell

in ashes we fell, in ashes we fell


in flames we did rise and in ashes we fell

consumed by the heat as we cast our last spell

engulfed in the flames at the sound of the bell

in ashes we fell, in ashes we fell

we merged with the light and the darkness did tell

the darkness did tell, the darkness did tell

the song of the night still heard by the well

In ashes we fell, in ashes we fell

Track Name: All Or Nothing
Onward, we go forward
to the water, the city falls
times kept by our daughters
not much farther
till we reach the dawn

renewal is upon us
its emerging within our song
remember this reversal
no longer personal
its always been one

I am held by the waters
when I'm with her
i am vulnerable
so strong what we have earned
all or nothing
I am always home

Onward, we go forward
to the water, the city falls
times kept by our daughters
not much farther
till we reach the dawn

Track Name: Space Grace Freedom
Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom
Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom
Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom
Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom

Emotional imprints from our family of origin
Carried with us is the frame we made when we were 7
It can spread thin if you are committed to transformation
You can reach in and stop yourself from chasing all the demons
The illusion and confusion of the way we relate with fate and reason
With loved ones changing in each season

Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom (4x)

We know that frustration is only subconscious resistance
To learn and see what we chronically carry
No longer do we tug and pull to get some emotional satisfaction
Subconscious cup filled for a moment
But the void remains empty
We resent not these beings that are going through the same thing
But rather rise and reach a higher understanding

Plague us not with weight but deliver us with space, grace and freedom (4x)

Eternal Freedom (4x)
