Fey Breeze 05:04
Only her voice did he know Soft as the midwinter snow Alight on a breeze, singing for thee Only the last ray of sun had shone Robed in the shimmering snow Deep in the forest of old Boughs wide and free, dancing for thee Entered him into a realm unknown Fared from his warm wooden home Leaving Spring's seeds all unsown Entranced by a dream, he rowed on a stream That far, far away from the world did flow Sang of her beauty and light Desperate to find page or knight To lead him to where the voice in the air Could end shame and sorrow and free the mind Weary and old did he grow On paths longer than he could know Alive yet away from those numbered sane His burden the world and his tears his own Roots pulled him down to the earth Midwinter sowing rebirth From deep in the trees flowed a fey breeze His last breath was drawn for the song he heard

Hold On 08:41
Dripping moss drip time away Root and thorn cradling Rest for weary bones into a grave so soft and safe Breath and thought, a mind afraid Fern and fog quivering Beckoning the great beyond A life to end this day Delicate yet strong, precious mortality On the verge of what's to pass Hanging off the edge, the world so vast Soon to know, but not now Holding on, tethered by the roots Grasping for what's next Still tension, what will be Whispering "hold on" You gave more than you wanted to Nobody asked if it was alright with you Now kindness in the kitchen's morning light Is gone, is gone, is gone They had no right to take a life Now you've given as much as you wanted to Devastation drives the forward in you Soon justice will shine in the courtroom's morning light Hold on, hold on, hold on They had no right to take a life

Raotan 07:37
Raotan, Raotan, tell me where my love has gone O'er the mountains or the sea Whither doth she wait for me Raotan, Raotan, sow your seed within my song Weave me spirit through the trees Find my love and set her free Raotan, of the gate, guardian of the forest fate May your portal bloom to me There within the Nornic three Raotan, Raotan, where have all the flowers gone? Withered in the Winter grey Shrouded by the forest fey? Raotan, Raotan, once in splendor, now forlorn Ancient emerald woodland king Mount your throne and call the Spring Guide me to your stillest glade Teach me how to wield the blade For the mountains and the sea Banish we the smog from thee Raotan, Raotan, rise our queendom to the sun Wonders of a gentle creed Carve upon your symphony Dancing leaves in the sun Speak with me when I am young Take my mind, the stories all Offer them to Raotan

In the space between the trees across the sky The waters run warm, deep and wide A voice beyond the tongues of man Compassion all I could understand The moon wept for the Earth a way I never can A chalice sundered, the wine spilled on the ground The dream is over, there's nothing so profound So just give up child, they're taking you away Forget the mother, and conquer what remains We feel the Winter, still the hills come down The pain grows stronger, yet it can't be found When there's nowhere left to turn, seek the ancient sound Serpents - across the sky Only children - still wonder why Jesus - raised the dead But who - will raise the living? As the far off echoes and the sun takes hold Becoming one as the fates foretold The humans' trial may play a role Or we may fall to grey and gold Green to dust and dust to soul of Earth is lost beyond control Solemn days, Winter comes Goddess dies when dreams are done So just try to remember how to sail away

Through the spirals - through it all Through the cycles - through it all Through the chaos - through it all Through the orders - through it all We will climb we will claw We will fight, we will bleed, we will fall On our way to the sun We will thrash we will wail We will rejoice, we will run, we will fail On our way to the sun Through the forest - through it all Through the portals - through it all Through the fires - through the walls Through the triumph - through the fall We will love we will heal We will march, we will demand justice, we will kneel On our way to the sun We will delve we will fly We will build temples, we will sing 'til we die On our way to the sun We will destroy the machine We will sow, we will tend, we will reap the ancient seeds On our way to the sun Through the hells, through the skies Through it all we will rise On our way to the sun Through the hurt and the shame when there's no one to blame Through it all Through the hopes that would fade when alone and afraid Through it all Through the memories thin of when love took you in Through it all Through a sorrowful smile I will stay for a while Through it all Through a sorrowful smile I can stay for a while Stay for a while...

One Day 06:55
One day I'll be free from the sorrow One day I'll be free from the sorrow One day the skies will hear our helpless cries One day I'll be dust in the Earth One day I'll be dust in the Earth One day the stones will crush my aching bones One day we'll be free from the sorrow One day - a return for what was borrowed One day we'll see the justice we believe Fight to never flee, when the waves come over me Hold me only ONE when our shame blots out the sun One day all the gold will fade to grey One day all that's sold will drown in flames Hope and plead and pray in a desperate charade One day One day I'll be free from the sorrow One day I'll abandon tomorrow When the endless night falls upon my heart's delight One day

And when you left the station the leaves were turning brown For wind there was no waiting, we could not stand the ground The knowledge of our changing, imagined inner peace For fire there was but blazing Just when I found out that this pain would never cease Such a sign only seen by sleeping minds in simple times Awakened in-betweens Far away, far away from here From Earth was spoke their leaving, a faith to find anew So constantly in grieving for what it's coming to I cried for you to hold on, don't let the forest fade I screamed there will be justice for all the silent pain Just when I called out that this world is gonna change All this time, so alive A love, a rhyme inside a dream awaiting for a time That's far away, so far away from here

Welcome, friends, to Silent Temple Where woven are songs of praise for Mother Earth And questions for her children Where, where are the humans truly present for the spirits of the Earth? Why is the value of a forest not seen until it is used? Why is the value of a mountain not seen until it is climbed or MINEd? It seems, my friends, that we need a Faery Revolution When, when will the warriors lay down their weapons And wield instead instruments to create rather than destroy destiny? When will the witches and the druids hold power in council across the land? How will we reinvigorate the spirits of the ancient forest within the hearts of humankind? I say this will happen my friends, with a Faery Revolution When the Faery Revolution cuts asunder the colonizer's fences and composts his documents All folk shall roam free on indigenous sovereign land When the Faery Revolution melts all the guns in a great demon-banishing fire The metals shall be buried, deep within the Earth from whence they were torn When the Faery Revolution builds Pagan temples Proud, shimmering, and vast as the mountains The needy and the broken shall dine in their highest halls When the Faery Revolution plants fruit, tree, and flower On every roadside of every city The deer, trolls and wolves shall roam amongst us in peace We shall roam amongst ourselves in peace A sight, a vision A sound, a harmony Mankind's religion will not set us free A word, a wonder Wandering the ONE Can spell us closer to a queendom in the sun We are in the light, we are in the trees We are everything we hear a blowin' in the breeze We are in the light, we are in the trees We are everything we hear a blowin' in the breeze We are in the trees, we, the only ONE We, the all arisin' for a queendom in the sun We are in the trees, we, the only ONE We, the all arisin' for a queendom in the sun A sight, a vision A sound, a harmony Mankind's religion will not set us free A word, a wonder Wandering the ONE Can spell us closer to the sun

Here's the place for an open heart A wide eyed child back from the start Here's the place for a loving fool to know their sacred ground Just how long can you play it cool When the gentle smile still waits for you? Just how long can you play along holding on to sinking sand? Once not so long away A golden light were they A child who climbed a tree The guardian of the gate Woke to the growing pains Had to leave their post To raise the banner high For the ones they loved the most Still with a dream in hand A woodland stream within So many would not stand When they called the freedom in Trees felled and flowers sold Hearts and homes gone broke A maid afraid to love A boy afraid to hope With the falling leaves of autumn is a dance toward their doom In the bright shines of the moon From the moments I've forgotten comes the ONE of every day Every mind and every play Home came another way Freedom from desire Folded in a glade Where the water loves the fire Shone light upon the dazed Tangled in the wires Let old systems fade And the seeress guide you higher With the falling leaves of autumn is a chance to find your grace In the cold sighs of the waves From the memories I've forgotten comes the warmth of yesterday And the smiles I cannot say Hold me now, when the fire is gone And the wind blows still, having lost its song A way to be, we could almost see freedom moving on With the scenes I will become Shining in an ancient sun Knowing all but dreams shall fade Every day I'll play the part Now once more back from the start Once not so long away A golden light were they A child who climbed a tree The guardian of the gate May our days on Earth still blossom And the portals open wide In the trees across the sky Spell the wish and heal the fallen Harmonize a gentle fate Goddess singing at the gate All we are from a star beyond And a memory of a childish song We can all believe in a love so strong We can raise our sights To those castles in the sky Raising peaceful banners high As an Earthly piece of art With compassion as our style We can learn back from the start

about

When the Faery Revolution plants fruit, tree, and flower on every roadside of every city, the deer, trolls, and wolves shall roam amongst us in peace. We shall roam amongst ourselves in peace!

Praise and thanks to Mother Earth for our existence in these lands of beauty and wonder. Thank you to the muses that came before and from within us.
