Winds blowing thru the land.
Creatures of the night lurking.
Beware as the spirits take flight.
Over there in the ruined church yard.
There lies the cracked bell, some say,
It can be heard on the nightly breeze.
Suddenly, I hear the screeching night owls.
She's going to take you thru the tunnel of night.
I could barely hear a voice whispering my way.
Just out of the shadows, I see her gazing at me.
She comes from heaven, earth, lives in the underworld.
As the sea ebbed and flowed in honor of it's dark lord.
And you slip naked between my sheets of silk .
Beware that you do not step and lose your way.
For the night is long, and the sea is deep indeed.
As I drive your sons and daughters into ecstasy .
I love how you forbid your sons and daughters.
To commit the sins that you, yourself committed.
I travel thru mirrors along with the owls of night.
I wed thru adultery , and conceive thru murder.
Beware that you do not lose your way this day.
Or your pleasure with life will not last long.
Though you can be sure I will be there, to welcome,
Those who come to me, into the night , eternal !!!
