PRIESTESS OF TRYBLITH Lyrics: Philip Obermarck Music: Heather Alexander As a child he asked of me Offerings of flowers And through the years I worshipped him He granted me his powers But new Gods have gained prominence And so his power wanes Lest I provide the offerings Of blood as he ordains For thirty days I left his shrine The safety of the trees And traveled through the towns of man To find one who would please I found him on the fifteenth day And for him I did a dance And lead him to my forest home As though within a trance I DANCE A DANCE OF SORROW AND I SING A VERSE OF PAIN I KNOW NOT IF THE MORROW WILL RELEASE ME FROM THESE CHAINS For two weeks we lived happily On fruit and game and wine I said that with a sacrifice We’d share a gift divine And so upon the final day With full moon shining bright I spilt his blood upon the stone My god drank well that night Now every night the moon is full Within that cursed glade I wrap my spells about myself And dance for my love’s shade I dance the dance of sorrow And I sing the verse of pain I know not if the morrow Will release me from these chains Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

MAIDEN OF SPRING Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander Come Lady, play with me All of the day with me Let me come lay with thee Maiden of spring Please let me dance with thee Gambol and prance with thee Let this romancing be Our song to sing I will adorn with you Flowers new-born with you ‘til we have worn them through into the night You have now heard my song Every last word is strong Like a wild bird along It’s morning flight Let us pick flowers where We can spend hours there And all the powers dare As we first kiss Held tight within my arms Protected here from harms Moonlight to lend its charms Quickening our bliss If we stay tarrying Here in this faerie ring We will be carrying Love’s special seal Hand to hand let us be Free but forgetlessly Ever to blessed be Part of life’s wheel Come Lady, play with me All of the day with me Let me come lay with thee MAIDEN OF SPRING!

FAMILIAR'S PROMISE Music: Heather Alexander Lyrics: Taiko the Pup I can feel your heart burning With tears that you hide I will walk without turning Ever close by your side I will guard you at night And alert you to harm Then will snuggle up tight Just to keep us both warm LAY YOUR HAND ON MY HEAD AS THE FIRELIGHT DIES AND BELIEVE WHAT I’VE SAID FOR THIS LOVE NEVER LIES I’ll inspire you to laugh I’ll release you to cry I’m the strong silent half Of what we unify I will give you my heart If you give me your hand And it’s never we’ll part Whilst beside you I stand If it’s courage you seek I am yours to command I don’t outwardly speak But I still understand Through your joy and your strife I’ll attempt any task I will lay down my life All you needs do is ask Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

SPELL OF BREAKING Ritual written by Heather Alexander What once has been For good or ill Brought by thy wish Or by thy will Is now set free And what shall be Is set by me And my word still! All that was mine In your control Reverts to me Whilst you pay toll The bond shall break The law unmake For back I take All mine in whole! You have no power over me! Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

WHISPERING STONES Ritual written by Heather Alexander Music: Heather Alexander and the Winds of Avebury Circle A perfect circle 'round to make That Ancient Ones may come partake Where Powers of Lore will manifest And children in this ring be blessed Here is neither time nor place Within lies only truth to face A realm of neither night nor day Antiquity protects this way Sword and Staff, Cauldron and Cross These the tools to bridge the fosse Magic in the blood runs free For children of Antiquity Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

Wild Hunt 04:01
WILD HUNT Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander Ride with the wind Through the fields and the trees O'er the hills with your kin ‘Til you can’t feel your knees On a steed that won’t hear Though you wail and you cry For your reins will not steer And you never will die! COME AND RIDE! COME AND RIDE! MYSTIFIED BY OUR POWERS! COME AND RIDE! COME AND RIDE! SOUL DENIED! YOU ARE OURS! COME AND RIDE! Come, join the hunt For the fox running fast We will ride in the front You will take up the last Through the night and the cold Through the mist without rest Cursed by magic of old You will never be blessed! You’ll be aching with grief For the light of the day For your lack of belief It’s the price that you pay You’ve forgotten our ways And refused to hold true ‘Tis the end of your days ‘Tis the ending of you!

BLOOD AND PASSION Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander Pulse of passion, heart of truth Soul of old, blood of youth Strength that’s born from pain’s adrenaline Summons out what lies within THE MOON IS HIGH! THE NIGHT IS YOUNG! THE VOICES CRY! THE SONG IS SUNG! BLOOD AND BODY ARE ONE! Smoke and darkness, gasp of air Ecstasy, grim despair, Whispered voices speak from deep inside, Spilling truths too strong to hide Burning silver, spark of gold Blood is hot, sweat is cold- Shadows bend and shape to something new Brought to light by what is true Is it that things really change? Or does the outside rearrange? Is perception genuine? Or does truth lie deep beneath the skin? Glistening muscle, heated breath Love and hate, life and death Will you dare at all to meet my eyes? It’s in there your own strength lies! BLOOD AND PASSION ARE ONE! Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

SWORD AND STAFF Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander KYRIE ELEISON! MAIDEN, MOTHER, CRONE OF HOSTS KYRIE ELEISON! FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST KYRIE ELEISON! WIND AND LIGHTNING, RAIN AND MOSS KYRIE ELEISON! SWORD AND STAFF, CAULDRON AND CROSS A circlette of the Sacred Thorn The rising of the Sun reborn A sacrifice for all Mankind A tree with root and branch entwined God will grant His blessing still Though we call Her what we will We can name it what-so-ere A spell is nothing but a prayer Holy water, sacred spring Angel fire, faerie ring Different, and yet still the same Acceptance lies beyond the name Each and all are tied as one There should be no comparison This one law is rudiment Our faith's defined by our intent Stone and statue bless this ground Different faiths, together bound Back to back we share one fight To stand against the Dark with Light Mother Earth, God above Unify us all in Love Unite us through diversity For fear is our true enemy Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006

Sacred Fire 05:22
SACRED FIRE Music & Lyrics: Heather Alexander Hickory, birch and willow, oak, ash and thorn, Hazel, holly, rowan are the nine where the flame is born- All of you who gather here bear wounds that never healed, Festered and forgotten, blood stained and congealed- Souls with horrid secrets, bodies that can’t feel, Love is just a faerie tale! Only pain is real- Your lips are sealed in silence with needs you cannot speak, You want to heal the violence but you all fear what you seek- OH, VICTIMS OF A WRONG DESIRE! OH, I HEAR YOU CRY FOR SACRED FIRE! CRAWL UP ON YOUR KNEES AND SCREAM MY NAME! YOU’VE SUMMONDED ME BEFORE YOU- JUST REACH OUT AND TOUCH MY FLAME! Bridgit or Osiris, Micheal, Uriel, Conjure me by any name to disenchant this spell- The hatred lashing at your soul that forces you to pray, To heal will cost a painful toll to frighten you away- I offer up an answer to end your nightmare days, In perfect truth with perfect love we’ll light a holy blaze- Summon all your suffering, set and burn my seal, Stare at truth unblinking, to hurt and then to heal Heal the wound, sear the pain- Let the tears fall down like rain- If thee to thine own self be true- Nothing can have power over you! No one can have power over you! FLAME OF SACRED FIRE! Sea Fire Productions Inc c&p 2006
