lyrics

The Scavenger:

I see the shadow beyond the flame
I hear them calling out, now
They sing my secret name

I am your Abbot of unreason,
Your lord of misrule
And I wish to welcome you
To the feast for fools

Run adry now
I slake my thirst on thee
She's in her cups and aching
Scrying fortunes in the tea
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you,
And taste your scent again

Come down,
Ye lotus-eaters
Drink deeply of the tea
Now look me dead in the eyes to see
That you can't run away from me

These voices of madness unbound
Dementia I know thy name
I've got a place for you
Right by my side where you belong
Now you can be my queen
Or you can be my slave

Step closer into the darkness
So I can feel you and taste your scent again
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you and taste your scent again

A masquerade
Fulfill the prophecy
Become the Hecate

Look me in the eye
Take me by the hand
There is no escape
Come dance the ghost with me

Run adry, now
I slake my thirst one thee
She's in her cups, and aching
Scrying fortunes in the tea
Stand closer into the darkness
So I can feel you
And taste your scent again
