It’s here in the garden where the beasts roam free, with eyes in the shadows and ghosts in the trees. With secrets to uncover and remaining mysteries, follow me down to the garden of Yhi When the night comes around and the sacred web is spun, it’s made into memories by the 8 legged ones The hours of the evening far away from the sun, that will rise like a fire and burn everyone Here in this garden you can walk alone, with the mystery of Yhi and time thats gone And you may now try to understand, oh darling please take my hand. Magic potions, garden emotions Ways to conceal you, creeping and crawling and falling on through Well shall we begin?

Falling down down down, to the ways of the night and the underground Everything’s clear oh so clear, take a good look around as the end is here Moments away, star of the day, burn right through, me & you Dark may fall, upon us all, here to stay, Milky Way Ruins of the past may only last, dream come true for me and for you We’re spinning round and round and round, we’re here on this earth but bound to the ground Fly away away away, we long to take flight like the birds of the day and the bats of the night Tell me its true its true its true, that there’s a life beyond this form for me and for you. As the Gods came down from up above, they gave us hate but may we rule with Love.
3.
Wild breeze, we sail the seven seas Finding me, forever eternally, forever eternally A smile and a glow, it’s ever sweet you know Say it’s so, now it’s time to go, yes now it’s time to go The wind in your mind, sings of lonely times It caves in your brain, I won’t be back again, no I won’t be back again
4.
Instrumental The Rowan tree is one of the sacred trees of Witchcraft and the Ancient Druids. To sit beneath the Rowan Tree means one is safe from ethereal harm.

All I Ever 03:06
The tempest fire that you leave, the garden shadow that you see We’re safe and sounding at your door, the crystal eyes wanting more And all I understand is you, and all I ever feel is true In every moment that you breath, the goddess silence in you me Whisper gently at your door, and always wanting more and more And all you talk about is true, and all I ever see is you I’ll unveil my sorrow for you and take the cloak from my veins Wrap around me like a kiss on my neck and climb right into my brain Where the sweet sound of death remains The light of morning hits the dawn, the cold of winter carries on The sweetest shadow at your door, the thrill of wanting more and more And all I understand is you, and all I ever see is true
6.
Borne out of magic, hopelessly romantic, today is tomorrow, paranoia follows Hold me up into the sky, so beautifully we die and hold me to the rain, so that I can feel again I tell by your dreaming while you lie awake inside the strangest feeling Cannot be described I heard your God has been sleeping but now has been awakened! I’ve been looking down upon you all throughout the years I’ve watched you hate, I’ve seen you love and I’ve felt all of your tears I’ve heard the curse that is thrown upon me and my name used in vain But it is I who creates the shadow, for that is what will remain
7.
Way beyond simple repair, as the days are long but too long to care Because your cold like the winter and I feel so old like a beggar And where have you gone? You sleep too long And where have you run? And what have you become? Because your cold like the winter and I feel so old like a beggar Light the dark the sun is the spark for you
8.
Burn Burn you’d think we’d rather learn, the message from the fire the flames are burning higher A gift from down below it’s everything we know, rising to the fall it’s here to burn us all it’s like a feeling that you wanna know, message from the fire! It’s so revealing of what it can show, message from from the fire! Take take you know it’s not to late, it’s everything you need when the blood is on the bleed Come on into the scene say what you really mean, the message from the fire the flames are burning higher You’ll find it’s meaning when you wanna show, message from the fire! You’ll start believing when you wanna know, message from the fire! Floor from the ceiling is where it will go, message from the fire! Some call it dreaming and say it is so, message from the fire! Take down the only mind of man and be the one to give up all the fire understands It’ll wake you in the morning to the mirror of the night, message from the fire is the only thing in sight it might rip you up and shake you down and make you sick as the merry go around It’s a fire in the night makes the world to see, message from the fire is everything we need!

Instrumental If only I could show you the places and people i’ve seen in my dreams

I know we’re moving about, it’s like a feeling you must get out So slow at walking around, it’s like some hearing another sound Out here we are growing, where the light must fall and all you are showing Sit down and tell me you need, what’s like a feeling that you can see I know it’s eternally and everything is not what it seems Mysteries of the follow, hide from the sun deep down in the hollow Go back to sweet little lies, it’s like your waiting to realise Some how while turning to leave, it’s like a feeling that you must need Strange ways of the willow, stand side by side, lie on a pillow Night sky tells a story fro the queen, the power and the glory are there to be seen
11.
Cold ways out of in the fire, in the sun Softly taken with desire, in the sun It’s cold like a winter rain falling down again Cold like falling rain calling down again Moonbeam meadow of the wanting, for the sun Cold wind broken but believing, in the sun
12.
Incognito 02:58
Sweeter surprises deeper disguises you’re a bound looker with a mind of your own Sing a song soon but your over the gloom, a pair of nice petals but the honey is gone And I wanna be sure that you won’t blow my cover Memory and change this euphoria is strange, where you gonna run when they carry us home? Picture in the glass but the others won’t last , where you gonna run when they carry us home? And I wanna be sure that you won’t blow my cover And I wanted everything that the others could bring but you know I won’t give it up now And the sirens that sing while we all were waiting, won’t be following their traces on the ground We’re all going down Fly out into the evening, nocturnal daydreaming Safe and sound there’s no one around We’re all going down
13.
When the June is yours, it may take a while to see Where it came from I’m not sure, but someplace it will take me In the nights that came following, shed the dreams of not believing Cold as this winter may seem, the June light sun is beaming Where it fails to see you, where it cannot get through Where it sits all alone, where the June light once shone In the eyes that came sorrowing, held the dreams that some were borrowing Blessed as this winter may seem, the June light sun is beaming
