Now here’s a girl Soft foot to forest lair I like this girl Lynn the archer fair Like a willow she’s bending Nimble fingers long and soft Her allure never ending Luscious nectar rising waft Reveal the morning See her down in the market square Reveal night’s dawning Bathing pool quite bare Come upon the water’s edge Prowess revealed is mine Little struggle shoreline ledge Twining charms of the vulpine Never want another Finally found my way If you think, don’t bother Tied to the archer’s sway In the barn round the back She was hiding amongst the straw Surprised me with an attack Loved me till I was raw Artemis, the literal There’s a reason for my love The archer keeps the vigil It’s her thought I’m thinking of She bends to and fro like a song I can move her round like pie Her belly’s soft and warm As I fill her up inside

In my misshapen room there’s one chair and one stool No bed to speak of, one hanging light one hundred watts I’d like to lay down my weary head But I’ve got to keep moving to the corners of my misshapen room Through the cracks in the floor I hear the voices calling There’s no dust on the floor, but there is cobweb with the fungus and mold A roof that lets the rain in on my brain And the windows are covered in coal In my misshapen room there’s one chair and one stool No bed to speak of, one hanging light one hundred watts I’d like to lay down my weary head But I’ve got to keep moving to the corners of my misshapen room When the vice tightens and the wedge is widening I move to the next corner, try to strip away the old But I move down a path descending And non-light breaks the fragments of mending Guide ropes frayed and torn so long ago What have I to say for not being bold, am I mold, will I go, how can I know? Is my fear just a raven in my nest Flapping its wings and breaking through my chest Since everyone else is so fine This wrongful illusion must be all mine And what can I say but sorry I can’t pick myself up, I just worry, but I don’t wish this on anyone, not even me, do I need Thorazine, how could this be?

Wooden Ship 05:11
Many years ago, when I was not so old you know, a green robed rider came across the sea. He said to me, gotta be free, gotta take life for all it's worth, and see what you can see. He was a black magic cat from the Emerald Isle. Don't you know, I took his advice; and now on life's gonna be real nice Essence was his dream, there was nature in his work you see, he said man make your heaven on this earth He was a black magic cat from the Emerald Isle. (Chorus) Got my wooden ship, I got my soul Got my wooden ship, I got my pot of gold. It's the twentieth century; alive 4000 yrs. you see; can’t believe where man has gotten to Need to get back, back on the track, take hold of my destiny and be He was a black magic cat from the Emerald Isle. So I called, that green robed sidhe, and he came just as fast as he could be He said to me, gotta be free, journey to Glorfindel’s garden across the sea He was a black magic cat from the Emerald Isle (Repeat Chorus) Met a girl, she was my world, an elfin princess this little girl Now I'm free, free to be, and the world can fall away to the sea And you know, a little love, never hurt nothin, in a dark dreamer like me He was a black magic cat from the Emerald Isle (Repeat Chorus)

A knock came upon my door today Got up to see, but there was no one there Tried to sit back down to me quietly Something from the corner it stares Lime faced demon in my fireplace Sifting through the ash of another din Say, what are you looking for me ghastly face Down in the drums no me never sin Up from the lake front ye came A drunken sailor is to blame Catch fast jack rippin off me candlesticks Runnin through the house rippin out all the bricks Love, there's an elf in the kitchen Molly, lift your dress skirts high Be careful where you step Don't look into his eye Molly, there's an elf in the kitchen Love, there's an elf in the kitchen Stand on that chair there Watch him nippin at your ankles fair Molly, there's an elf in the kitchen From where wild storms came The wicked wind whispers his name But the cobbler of Clare doesn't answer to anyone With his castles of gold despair he builds his fun Chased him through the pantry And out onto the back landing Up on the thatched roof and into the bedroom Dumb as a door the cornered bridegroom Bottle of whiskey for the sailors dare A treasure chest filled with seaweed and mermaid hair Proud toe sewed bells ringing down the front stair Molly in the kitchen still standing on that chair

As I walked past my wife the other day I dreamt myself into a long ago I was wondering where my life, it had gone astray I was a child back in nineteen hundred and twelve Mary Mary, where did our love go? Mary Mary, why can't I feel you anymore? It doesn't seem like all that long ago As I walked through the woods the other day I saw dead leaves that I did know Then from a darkened brook the sun rose to the sky My life was a burned, bracken brier sown Mary Mary, where did our love go? Mary Mary, why can't I feel you anymore? It doesn't seem like all that long ago In my dream I am a Father by the shore I have three children of my own There is another that I cast out on the shore I never understood why I wished he'd go Mary, Mary where did our love go Mary Mary why can't I feel you anymore It doesn't seem like all that long ago Was I born into a time that hurt my shine? I contemplate this as I bleed upon a star Or was I victim of my own demonic mind No matter what the fate I must go far Mary, Mary where did our love go Mary, Mary why can't I feel you anymore It doesn't seem like that long ago Mary, Mary where did our love go Mary, Mary why can't I feel you anymore It doesn't seem all that long ago Though I'm a Million miles from home

Take a look into the waters there; brothers and companions, stones of the years I can see the depths and the future it does show As my time nears, tell me, I must know Father, how could you abandon your architecture? No more people here, since eons long ago My frozen stare tells more than you should know Take these chains and cast them into the sea I have wings to fly, but the world still keeps me The earth it falls away Is this the price to pay? The eastern wall falls away But the turret holds its sway Another moon, another sun, what does it mean to me Eyes that stare and mock through the dusk and dawn of days Born to live forever, oh how could they see? Nature draws me back; I’ll ride the white sea spray Take a look into the waters there; brothers and companions, stones of the years I can see the depths and the future it does show As my time nears, tell me, I must know Father, how could you abandon your architecture? Time is passing a rictus smile happening Eyes that never blink, a fang bearing shriek Look into the water now, brothers and companions fly As they call to me, I know that soon I’ll be free The earth it falls away Is this the price to pay? The northern wall falls away But the turret holds its sway

I've lived so long, don't even wonder why Waiting in the court, I've served out my time A string, some porridge, an open fire Have kept me from the flies We've waited so long lads, singing out these tunes Playing with the dogs; flirting with handmaidens To keep ourselves amused But the Jester doesn't come; the King looks quite upset Feel a cold wind calling, swinging someone by the neck Flowing through the castle halls, the King is off his throne Called the guard to his side, down the stairs and into another room Searching for the Jester, looking for the Queen But the King won't reveal passages, betwixt and between King sits back upon his throne, beaten broken battered down The jester's nowhere to be found The time looks bad for us lads, doesn’t look like we'll be going on Should we get the truth out now, or let these fools rage on and on Sneak out there now Anne, while us we wait inside Tell they of our plight, let them know us by our cries Will the lovers let us die, for what they've done tonight? Tarot woman, hanging man, dark cauldron, weaving sister’s hand Flowing through the castle halls, the King is off his throne Called the guard to his side, down the stairs and into another room Searching for the Jester, looking for the Queen But the King won't reveal passages, betwixt and between King can't go to his throne, hallway wall has come undone. Offering mere shell of empty room Darkly lit by slits, rising to the moon Fallen lovers cast in thronging hall Still didn't save us from our doom

Petit Chien 03:00
Where are you going now? When will you return, when? You bend like a willow blown Black colors come vibrant bright Sweet pain comes to me then Feel the ashes, Oh Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh What is that lament upon your skin When will we play again? Petite Chien Beautiful misery Sweet dark agony When will you come again? You cannot leave See that you are so tied to me Like an instrument tuned to another time Scattered rose petals around you And bits of white heat when You call a silver chain Where will you find that again? What is there I can say You've seen what was me You've been what you could be
