Lyrics


I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES /
THEY ONLY WALK ON MOSS
(Sample)
(WORDS : KIM LARSEN, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES
IN PROCESSION THROUGH THE WOODS
THEY ONLY WALK ON MOSS
THEIR AURAS´ MADE OF MOTHS
THEY WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND
THEY WANT TO REACH INSIDE
SO DEEP INSIDE DEEP INSIDE
I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES
I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES
CLOUDS HAVE BLOCKED THE SUN
BIRDS AND BEAST DRAW BACK
DEEP INTO THE WOODS
THEIR WORKINGS OF THEIR WILL HAS COMMENCED
THEY WANT TO HOLD YOUR HAND
THEY WANT TO CREEP INSIDE
SO DEEP INSIDE
DEEP DEEP DEEP INSIDE
I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES
I SAW THEM THROUGH THE PINES


THROUGH THE TREES SPEARS THE SUN
(WORDS : KIM LARSEN, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
THROUGH THE TREES SPEARS THE SUN
THROUGH MY HEART PIERCE THE DAWN
WE ARRIVE IN A ROBE OF SMOKE
IN SILENCE AND GILDED CLOAK
AND MY THOUGHTS THEY LINGER THEY LINGER
IT´S IN THE LEAVES AND THE PATTERNS AND THE FIRE
THE TREES THE SHADOWS AND THE PATH
IT´S IN THE SPIRIT OF THIS CLEARING
WITH ITS INCENSE AND ITS BLACKBIRDS
SOMETHING APPROACHES AND THE AIR THICKENS
THE OAK IT BOWS AND WILLOW SIGHS
THE LARK SINGS IN THE BOWER AND DAY DIES
SOON THE STARS GLISTEN IN THEIR COLD LAMENT
WE PASS THE LINDEN TO THE SOUND OF THE COMING DARKNESS
SOMETHING APPROACHES AND THE AIR BECKONS


THE BLOOD OF MY LADY (Sample)
(WORDS : MICHAEL LAIRD, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
ON GREEN MOSSY ROCKS BESIDE THE SEA
IN SMALL POOLS THE BLOOD AND SAND ARE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME...
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
IN SMALL DROPLETS WITHIN THE FOREST DEEP
IN TRACKS OF HOOVES THE EARTH AND BLOOD ARE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
FALLING IN A FINE MIST IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY
IT COVERS THE LEAVES OF THE MOURNING TREE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
TIMELESS AND FROZEN BENEATH THE ICE OF THE LAKE
IN SPRING THE WATER AND BLOOD SHALL BE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE



O DEEP WOODS (Sample)
(WORDS : ADAPTED FROM RUPERT BROOKE BY CHELSEA ROBB
MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)

I SHALL CROWN THOSE WHOM I HAVE LOVED
AS A FLAME DEVOURS THE MOTH
O WILD AND SWEET
AS BRIGHT WOOD'S BLOOD
O WILD AND SWEET
AS BRIGHT WOOD'S BLOOD
O TWILIGHT STARS EACH ONE AS FAIR
FEARFUL AND DEAR AS BREATH THAT WANES
O DEEP WOODS AND
TREMBLING AIR
O DEEP WOODS AND
TREMBLING AIR
IN THEE I FEEL MY HEART
IN THEE I FEEL MY MIND
YET STILL MY HEART PUTS FORTH ITS PAIN
YET STILL MY HEART PUTS FORTH ITS PAIN
YET STILL MY MIND...


MIDNIGHT GARDEN (Sample)
(WORDS : JOHN VAN DER LIETH, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
LINGER IN MY SHADOW!
IVY ROSES ENTWINE AROUND OUR FEET
THIS MIDNIGHT GARDEN
WHERE COVERT ANGELS COME TO WEEP
AGES COME AND GO
YEARS LIKE SEASONS PASS
A HEADLESS CROWN
IS ALL THAT LASTS
WE WEATHER THE STORM
BESIDES A LION HEAD
WHERE WE WATCH A CRUMBLING WORLD
ROTTEN AND SAD
THE YOUNG, THE OLD, THE LOWLY, THE STRONG,
SILENTLY SIP THE POISON OF TIME
THEN WITH A GESTURE OF SALVATION
THEY TURN INTO STONE
AGES COME AND GO
YEARS LIKE SEASONS PASS
A HEADLESS CROWN
IS ALL THAT LASTS
WEATHER-BEATEN HANDS
RESTRAIN THE TIME
WHAT JOY, AND BEAUTY,
AND WHAT SADNESS IS MINE!
FALLEN ARE THE LEAVES
LIFELESS STAND THE TREES
FORSAKEN STAIRS
LEAD TO NOWHERE
AGES COME AND GO
YEARS LIKE SEASONS PASS
A HEADLESS CROWN
IS ALL THAT LASTS


THE BLOOD OF MY LADY II
(WORDS : MICHAEL LAIRD, MUSIC : MICHAEL LAIRD)
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
ON GREEN MOSSY ROCKS BESIDE THE SEA
IN SMALL POOLS THE BLOOD AND SAND ARE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME...
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
IN SMALL DROPLETS WITHIN THE FOREST DEEP
IN TRACKS OF HOOVES THE EARTH AND BLOOD ARE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
FALLING IN A FINE MIST IN THE HEAT OF THE DAY
IT COVERS THE LEAVES OF THE MOURNING TREE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE
I HAVE SEEN THE BLOOD OF MY LADY
TIMELESS AND FROZEN BENEATH THE ICE OF THE LAKE
IN SPRING THE WATER AND BLOOD SHALL BE MADE ONE
AND SHE COMES HOME TO ME
SHE IS EVERYWHERE AND NOWHERE


HEMLOCK AND MANDRAKE FIELDS (Sample)
(WORDS : KIM LARSEN, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
HEMLOCK AND MANDRAKE FIELDS
WE WALK TO THE WOODS
ON LEAVES OF WOLFSBANE
WE RIDE TO THE STARS
THERE´S AND ANCIENT SECRET IN THESE WOODS
IT WILL OUTLIVE YOU AND I
THERE´S A STARE AMONG THE PINES
AND A WHISPER ON THE LEAVES
OH CIRCLES OF BLOOD
OH CIRCLES OF STONE
YOUR LOVE PULLED ME OUT OF THERE
YOUR LOVE PULLS ME OUT OF THERE
THERE´S A SECRET IN THESE WOODS
IT WILL GRAB YOU BY THE THROAT
AND THERE´S A SPELL ON THE WIND
TO TRICK YOU OF THE PATH
HEMLOCK AND MANDRAKE FIELDS
WE WALK TO THE WOODS
ON LEAVES OF WOLFSBANE
WE RIDE TO THE STARS


THE SWALLOWS SPIRALS THROUGH THEM (Sample)
(WORDS : KIM LARSEN, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
THERE´S A VAULT IN THE WOODS
AND A THRONE OF MOSS
A CROWN OF BLACK CARESS
AND A SPELL OF EMPTINESS
THEY ALL HAVE BLACK HOLE EYES
THEIR VOICE BETWEEN THE MIST AND THE MOOR
THE SWALLOWS SPIRALS THROUGH THEM
THE SWALLOWS SPIRALS THROUGH THEM...



NIHIL SUM (Sample)
(WORDS : MICHAEL LAIRD, MUSIC : MICHAEL LAIRD)
NOW THAT THE BLACKBIRD TOOK MY EYES
I CAN´T SEE I AM NO ONE
AND AS I FLY INTO THE WINTER NIGHT
I'M ALONE THERE IS NO NEED FOR SIGHT
THE HEAVENS ARE MY GUIDE
YOUR LOVE IS MY STRENGTH
THOUGH I CANNOT SEE YOU NOW
I ALWAYS FEEL YOU THERE
BEYOND, IN THE NORTH
BESIDE THE ANCIENT STONES
BESIDE THE ANCIENT STONES
NOW THAT THE BLACKBIRD TOOK MY EYES
I CAN´T SEE I AM NO ONE
AND WHEN MY WINGS ECLIPSE THE SUN
HOW I FALL INTO THE WATER DEEP
THE RIVER OF OUR LOVE
IT BRINGS ME BACK TO YOU
AS IT ALWAYS HAS
AND AS IT ALWAYS WILL
IN YOUR GARDEN I AWAKE
TO FIND YOU KNEELING THERE
BESIDE THE ANCIENT STONES
BESIDE THE ANCIENT STONES


I SAW HER THROUGH THE PINES
(WORDS : MICHAEL LAIRD, MUSIC : KIM LARSEN)
A MAIDEN THROUGH THE PINES
AWAY, AWAY SHE RAN
AND SAW HERSELF LAID OUT
UPON THE MOSS AND STONE
THEY WANT TO HOLD HER HAND
THEY WANT TO REACH INSIDE
SO DEEP INSIDE DEEP INSIDE
I SAW HER THROUGH THE PINES
SOON THE HORNED ONE GOES
DEEP, DEEP INTO THE PINES
AND SOUNDS OF HOOVES ON STONE
ARE CARRIED ON THE WIND
HE WANTS TO HOLD YOUR HAND
HE WANTS TO REACH INSIDE
SO DEEP INSIDE DEEP INSIDE
I SAW HIM THROUGH THE PINES
