Lyrics:Sibilant and macabre
Walpurgis sauntered in
Skies litten with five-pointed stars
The
work of crafts surpassing sin
As She graced Her window ledge
- An orphaned gypsy nymph

This issue of the forest's bed
Skin flushed with sipped absinthe -
Her eyes revealed,
as Brocken's peak
Tried once concealing Hell
A snow white line of divine freaks
In
riot, where they fell...

The circus lurches in, a ring of promised delight
For seven
days and seven festival nights
What wicked wonders lie within the comfines
Of the
panther's den

She watches from a maypole, on the rip of Her tongue
The restless
spirit of Christmas to come
A Gretel sick of merely sucking Her thumb
Than gingerbread men


Spawned scorned, abhorred by the aerial
She was the light of the world going down

War-torn, forlorn and malarial
She was found
Born in a burial gown


Unloosed, the chain of Her god-given cross
Seduced, now pagan ribbons swathe Her
repose
In a carnival of souls sold and similarly lost

Too many decades misfit and
mislaid
In innocence, a tender legend of prey
Parades Her second coming, now they're
running afraid

Spawned scorned, abhorred by the aerial
She was the light of the world
going down
War-torn, forlorn and malarial
She was found
Born in a burial gown


Now She moves with a predator's guile
Beyond the firelit circle of life
She
soothes your cold heart for a while
Then matches its beat, synching in with a knife
She
wrestles Her dreams with a delicate case
Espied by Her cross on the wall
And should She
awake, through embrace or mistake
She would take Jesus
Bless foot forward and
