Lyrics by Monica Richards


Ripped from the root:
I am with you

I feel her alive and venus behaved
Magic the guide to expect as she makes her entrance -
Did you not bask beneath my gaze?
Oh the wind can cause the rails to creak like a ship in Arctic duress
Then a slavedancer, beaded and perfumed
Metal-cold bracelets upon each battered wrist -
The question of my deity rewarded
With every wave of her hand to the audience

In 200 AD, I am yet just and fair in the language of trees
A soldier in respite while they plotted my death
Then a simple Bard shackled yet still able to sing
Trimmed, and perfect and haven't eaten in three days
I know what it is to lose my heart
Now reaching up to that lovely, lovely place
Where all answers await capture
Believe in Me
And I'll take you with me
Are we defined by misunderstandings?
A thousand or more Chant the All
The Mighty Rise and Fall
Rise and Fall
