Track Name: Imbolc Fire - Sea and Stone
There is a voice beneath the ground
Vibration turning into sound
The alchemy of drum and flame
Echoing the very same
Dancers spinning in the dark
Rhythm speaks in every spark

Our hearts sing with ancestral tone
The voice of sea and wind and stone

We bear the mark
You cannot take it
We are the dark
You will not shake it
We are the song
You can’t restrain
We are the strong
We shall remain

Echoing from cliff and canyon
Rumbling in wild abandon
Mystery of dance and blaze
Harkening to older days
Voices calling in the night
Sacred whisper burning bright

We carry in our hearts the song
Hallowed chant that makes us strong
Unleash the hymn into the storm
Ancient voice now taking form
Lightning strikes to light the sky
Tempest raging at the lie

Pouring down upon the plain
Symphony of falling rain
Elemental voice, eternal cry
Summons us to wonder why
If the answer is hate and fear
The sky now bathes us all with tears
Track Name: Beneath Your Feet
And when I’m gone don’t you go grieving
It is not you that I am leaving
when I’m free at last
When my spirit’s passed
You will find that I am all around you

I am the earth beneath your feet
I am the sky above the street
I am the wind that shakes the trees
I am the crashing of the seas
I am your heartbeat in the night
I am darkness, I am light

Raise your eyes and feel the sunlight
Don’t dim the candle, let it shine bright
when I’m free at last
When my spirit’s passed
You will find that I am all around you

I am the earth beneath your feet
I am the sky above the street
I am the wind that shakes the trees
I am the crashing of the seas
I am your heartbeat in the night
I am darkness, I am light

You will never walk alone
I will wait till you reach home

I am the earth beneath your feet
I am the sky above the street
I am the wind that shakes the trees
I am the crashing of the seas
I am your heartbeat in the night
I am darkness, I am light
Track Name: Night Queen
I steal away in cloak of night
Running from the harsh daylight
Shadowed paths now to walk
Shadowed voices now to talk

Mysteries of drum and fire (Heartbeat in the night)
Beauty, pain and dark desire (And it feels so right)
Caress of starlight on my cheek (Reaching deep within)
From the Night Queen I now seek (Feel you on my skin)

Queen of Night
Beauty bright
Dawn of darkness
End of light

Wings of ebon floating down (And she wraps them round me)
Onyx in her silver crown (And now I am happy)
Velvet cloak of swirling night (Hidden from the day)
Radiant with points of light (Sorrow melts away)

Into her arms I send my soul
Rinse the burns to make me whole
Midnight elixir on my skin
Healing me from deep within

Dance your path across the land (And now I will follow)
Starlight trailing from your hand (Filling every hollow)
Shield us from the burning bright (Dreamers in your hand)
Dawn of darkness, end of light (Peace upon our land)
Track Name: Samhain Night
More than shadows here tonight
Flicker in the firelight
More than echoes in the wind
More than breezes touch our skin

Pass the horn and sing the praise
Of those who walked in older days
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Hail the Ancestors with me
Hail the Friends and Family
Hail the Spirits, Hail the Souls
Hail the night that makes us whole

Draw them here across the Veil
Sing their praise and tell their tale
See the faces in the flames
Hear the voices, call the names

Pour libations to the ground
Fill the night with joyous sound
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night

Hail the Ancestors with me
Hail the Friends and Family
Hail the Spirits, Hail the Souls
Hail the night that makes us whole

They live in more than memory
The Veil so thin that we can see
The friends and loves that we long for
Are waiting on the other shore

Remember why we gather here
At the closing of the year
Stand before the fire bright
Hail the Dead this Samhain night
Track Name: Children of the Earth
Children of the Earth
Blessed is our tread
In hope do we walk
In hope do we walk

For we will light the way
We will light the way
Though the night is dark
We will bring the day
We will light the way
We will light the way
Though the night is dark
We will bring the day

Children of the Earth
Blessed is our step
In love do we dance
In love do we dance

For we will light the way...

Children of the Earth
Blessed are our hands
In hope do we shape
In hope do we shape

For we will light the way...

Children of the Earth
Blessed is our touch
In love do we heal
In love do we heal

For we will light the way...

Children of the Earth
Blessed is our voice
In hope do we sing
In hope do we sing

For we will light the way...

Children of the Earth
Blessed are our drums
In hope do we play
In hope do we play
