lyrics

Lover’s Pardon
(Knight/Winter)

The priests have been anointed
The rooms appointed
Copal smolders on the coals

When I make the sign of entry
The halls are empty
Candles gutter in dark pools

Night’s veil of darkness comes upon me

She promised musky wine and
She left the light on,
And she beckoned me in

Sweet taste of everlasting,
Mad poets dancing,
Drunk on ecstasy and pain

But now her halls are empty and she does not call my name

Ah ah ah ah eeai
The crows are feasting in the garden
Ah ah ah ah eeai
Will she grant me a lover’s pardon

Capricious Muse
Whose tides no man can know
Your ever-changing fancy is for you alone
I hear your voice like a thousand praises sung
I hear your songs echo in the chambers below

To some you grant the music
To some a hunger
That cannot be satisfied

Drunk on the blood of heroes
Let none come near you
Lest they drink up your lies

I cast my wine in anger

Ah ah ah ah ah ah eeai
The crows are feasting in the garden
Ah ah ah ah eeai
Will she grant me a lover’s pardon

INST based on A part

The Bacchae tear their flesh and my pen is wet with ink
Indigo and fresh, the wine that poets drink
Your songs will wake the Mighty
Echoed from the chamber
Who can tame her?
Oh who can tame her?
