Track Name: Urbarrana
The moon is high
And darkness comes
When there's no light
Anymore

Fear of darkness
In the light of the moon
Lost in madness
In the light of the moon
Here men have called
Here wolves have come
Their souls will meet
To be one

Here is sharing
Here is judgement
Here is a choice
Urbarrana

She's the huntress
In the light of the moon
She's on a quest
In the light of the moon

He chooses death
She'll hunt him down
There'll be no rest
For his heart

He chooses love
And wolf and man
Will roam the earth
Together/Forever

Lost in darkness
In the light of the moon
Heart in wildness
In the light of the moon

She's the huntress
In the light of the moon
She's on a quest
In the light of the moon
Lost in darkness
In the light of the moon
Heart in wildness
In the light of the moon
Fear of darkness
In the light of the moon
Lost in madness
In the light of the moon
Track Name: Scarborough Fair
Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Are you going to Scarborough Fair
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Remember me to one who lives there
For she once was a true love of mine
For he once was a true love of mine

Tell her to make me a cambric shirt
Ask him to find me an acre of land
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Without no seam nor fine needlework, and then
Between the salt water and the sea-strand
Then she'll be a true love of mine
For then he'll be a true love of mine

Tell her to wash it in yonder dry well
Ask him to plough it with a lamb's horn
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Which never sprung water nor rain ever fell, and then
And sow it all with one peppercorn
Then she'll be a true love of mine
For then he'll be a true love of mine
Tell her to dry it on yonder thorn

Ask him to reap it with a sickle of leather
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Which never bore blossom since Adam was born, and then
And gather it up with a rope made of heather
Then she'll be a true love of mine
For then he'll be a true love of mine
Ask her to do me this courtesy

When he has done and finished his work
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
And ask for a like favour from me, and then
Ask him to come for his cambric shirt
Then she'll be a true love of mine
For then he'll be a true love of mine

If you say that you can't, I shall reply
Say that you can't, then I shall reply
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Oh, let me know that at least you will try
Or you'll never be a true love of mine
Or you'll never be a true love of mine

Love imposes impossible tasks
Love imposes impossible tasks
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
But none more than any heart would ask
I must know if you are a true love of mine
I must know if you are a true love of mine
Track Name: The Weaver
When I know how to weave
I'll be a pretty spider
I'll catch them in my web
Those six legged memories
With their hideous coloured wings
And their ugly rusted stings
They're more deadly than my poison
They'll return to the past they come from

These times I'd rather forget
It wasn't me, t'was someone else
I'll catch them all in my web
They'll make a good diner
They'll burn in the morning light
Drowned away, washed away in a new delight

This time I'll try to forget
Those tearful times I've come to regret
I'll catch them all in my web
And I'll make them suffer
They'll be wrapped in strings of light
Blown away, swept away in a whirl of fright
Track Name: Trapped Under Ice
Here I am
Still breathing
Tell me how it is that
Everyone's screaming
No-one hears me crying

Tragic pantomime
Deafening silence
Have to turn to ice
Burn into ashes

Hold my breath
Keeping still
Tell me now will it end
Everyone's dreaming
No-one feels me drowning

No one notices
Life under the earth
Mortuary dances
War masks will unfurl

Hide my fears
Keep breathing
Tell me how it will end
Everyone's freezing
No-one sees me fading

Tragic pantomime
Deafening silence
Have to turn to ice
Burn into ashes

I'm trapped under ice
Track Name: February
So cold, so cold
Snow upon stories untold
Maybe we could start anew
Counting till twenty-two

So cold, so cold
Wait until stories unfold
For you'll soon be unfrozen
Counting till twenty-seven

So cold, so cold
Snow upon stories untold
How I wish you never knew
Counting till twenty-two

So cold, so cold
Wait until stories unfold
Mourn the path you've not chosen
Counting till twenty-seven

So cold, so cold
Snow upon stories untold
It's time to bid them adieu
Counting till twenty-two

So cold, so cold
Wait until stories unfold
You can make your own heaven
Counting till twenty-seven

So cold, so cold
Snow upon stories untold
You will never have a clue
Counting till twenty-two

So cold, so cold
Wait until stories unfold
Wish my heart would come open
Counting till twenty-seven
