Magick

 

Words & Music: Bobby Shiflett

I’ll come away, today, to play
The Fool to pull the strings of hearts
And dance around this twisted town
That melts in itself and comes apart

In heat I dream, I seem to show
The thirst to feed the need to know
By life and knife when blood does flow
Open curtains reveal the show:

“Bliss!,” screamed the morn-ing,
Town criers warn-ing
Wine flowed on flesh ex-posed
And like a fly the soul a-rose

Trip and fall,
slip over the wall
Heed their cries,
nature calls you
Fear this year,
A beast re-leased
‘See’ this place
that magick takes you

She comes to laugh and dream and hope
This insane child of the night
We danced around this burning town
And in it’s shadow our moment was bright

In heat I dream, on her I feed
We flow as one she takes my seed
Tomorrow grows from our ghost
And in itself, the future holds

“Bliss!,” screamed the morning,
Town criers warning
Wine flowed on flesh exposed
And like a fly the soul arose

Trip and fall, slip over the wall
Heed their cries, nature calls you
Fear the year, this beast released
‘See’ this place that magick takes you
