Track Name: /\ \/
AS ABOVE SO BELOW
Track Name: Mesha
Bathed in the glow of the light of a hundred flickering lanterns
Gazing upon the shadows cast by a flowing sea of strangers
Wandering
Beckoning

The streets are littered with discarded bones, scraps of food with lifeless eyes
A feast to calm the clowder’s hungry cries

Joining the unanimous prayerful chants with discordant melodies
The voices join and echo through moonlit alleys in feral harmony
Conjuring
Worshiping

A fallen fortune teller’s card seeks divination amongst the wind
As the snake charmer’s flute signals the rising sun
Peeking out through iron spirals
Silently watching the dawn come undone

Graveyard dust and decaying rose petals
Make for a soft place to lay and rest

Dancing upon the mosaic tiles of an ancient prince’s tomb
Unaware of the skeleton smile which gazes up from its eternal womb
Guardian
Of the innocent ones

Totem spirit of the land
Inspiring evocations
Framed by crumbling palace walls
Ornate dilapidation
Track Name: Witch Haus
A Violet flower plays with the moon
In the garden where wild roses grow
A spider hangs from a witch’s broom
Watching potions get poured in the kitchen below

If you fancy to visit the upper lair
Touch heads with the guardian to pay the toll
Watch out for the witch with the room full of mirrors
Her mischievous familiar will steal your sole*

Receive divination from a fox
A crow kindles flames to attract a blue moth
Oh, watch the feathers fall

Pull up on the lever to lift the trapdoor
If you fancy to visit the under lair
Turn your lantern up bright and be given a tour
By the ghosts and opossums who’ve made their home there

Receive divination from a fox
A crow kindles flames to attract a blue moth
Oh, watch the feathers fall
Track Name: Wolf Bones
The memory of a howl of a wolf echoes
Through the cavity of a skull half concealed in the moss
Summoned by the ghost this cry invokes
A figure, hunched and wandering, reclaims spirits lost

A cottage filled with ivory piles
Collections of remnants of lives long replaced
This newest addition the final piece
She begins to articulate a lupine beast

Sing to the bones
(Canta a los huesos)
Sing to the bones
The bones begin to stir

Tracing a sigil in fireplace ashes
With gnarled fingertips
A spell on her lips
The bones begin to stir

Sing to the bones
(Canta a los huesos)
Sing to the bones
The bones begin to stir

Ensorcelled by her spirit
Enfleshed by her song
La Loba transmogrifies
Track Name: Slither
Coal-stained eyes
Smeared black lips open wide

Amulet swinging like a pendulum chain
Stir up my cauldron, I’ll conquer your blade

I’ll be your lucid dream
Show me your alchemy

Ritualize
Cast your breath into mine

Sage smoke hanging in ethereal haze
Worship my altar, I’ll conquer your blade

I’ll be your lucid dream
Show me your alchemy

The shadows swell as the candle flames flicker
My spine’s like a snake as I sit and I slither

Hot blood running through druzy veins
Drink from my chalice, I’ll conquer your blade

I’ll be your lucid dream
Show me your alchemy
Track Name: Femme Feral
A halo of moths casts a circle above her tangled tresses
Embraced and seduced by the swirling wind
which captures and carries the scent of her essence

Petrichor breath sighs through beetle wing teeth
As vetivert tears fall on outstretched hands
Consumed by secrets told through jellyfish whispers
That only the feral ones understand

Mandrake screams reverberate through
Wormwood dreams of midnight blue

Garnets catch between her toes
as she wades through rivers and her heartbeat slows
to the pulse of the waning moon

Lost in pareidolia
The cracks in a stone become petroglyph tales
Soft mullein kisses graze her velvet underbelly
Touches translucent through silkworm spun veils

Mandrake screams reverberate through
Wormwood dreams of midnight blue

Firelight flashes in her eyes
As she summons the spirits and dances in time
With the pulse of the waning moon
