    Lyrics

    Born In A Burial Gown

    Sibilant and macabre
    Wallpurgis 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 confines
    Of the panther's den

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

    Spawned scorned, abhored 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, abhored 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 it beat, sinking in with a knife
    She wrestles Her dreams with a delicate ease
    Espied by the cross on the wall
    And should she awake, through embrace or mistake
    She would take jesus
    Blest foot forward and all...

    Sibilant and at last
    The circus crawled away
    With another lover in it's arms
    Dancing on Her grave...
