Liner Notes: 

Clearing out the creative detritis. At this point, whatever comes comes.

I've spent some quality time with the faeries of late. Respect, my dearies, and don't turn your back.

Lyrics: 

In a blackthorn
I met the edge of a knife
In a cradle
I heard the voice of an old, old life

Weighted is the moment
That is baited with breath

In a blackthorn
I met the edge of a knife
In a cradle
I heard the voice of an old, old life

Weighted is the moment
That is baited with breath

On the head of a pin
The devils start to spin
Slipping something in

This house is my home
This branch is my throne
This flower has a scent to make you float
While I slit your throat

In a blackthorn
I met the edge of a knife
In a cradle
I heard the voice of an old, old life

Slipping something in
Slipping something in

In a blackthorn
In a blackthorn

Aw I like that
Very esoteric
I'm big on faeries
must write a faerie lyric.
Well done

I really enjoy listening to your stuff. This is very old school faeries... dark and enticing. I liked how you hung out a lot on one chord. It created a sense of dreaminess and tension both at the same time.

Nice inversion of the cliché:
"On the head of a pin
The devils start to spin"

Well done on the imagery!

I new wyatt would show up on the list of commenters -- it has faeries in it! Excellent vocal, amazing you can do this a capella ... it's not a capella. I just put on my headphones and suddenly I heard that piano in there (ha, ha). Too much room noise, I guess. I was going to say turn up the piano a bit, but it sounds fine on headphones. I am listening a second time to hear the piano and vocal together. I guess I need to turn my speakers up a tad! Wonderful overall sound.

Amazing mood and amazing wordplay. Such great lyrics and woven into a really enticing melody. I love the dark and ominous tone the song has in both word and music. Nicely done... Smile

Wow. This is hypnotic and spooky in a very good way.
