Master Shamen I have come
with my dolly from the shadow side
with a demon and an Englishman
I'm my mother
I'm my son
nobody else is slipping the blade in easy
nobody else is slipping the blade in the marmalade


All the angels all the wizards black and white
are lighting candles in our hands
can you feel them touching hands before our eyes
and I can even see sweet Marianne


Sister Janet you have come
from the woman clothed with the sun
your veil is quietly becoming none
call the Wanderer he has gone
and all those up there are making it look so easy
with your perfect wings
a wing can cover all sorts of things

    General CommentSounds like a bunch of cerimonial magick references.

    Demon and an Englishman...Alastair Crowley?

    Slipping the blade in the marmelade - some sexual reference, possibly to the "Blade and Chalice" or Great Rite.

    I like the angels wings covering things. Angels have been responsible for deaths, for leveling towns, for God's vengance...

    and everyone thinks of them as beautiful and peaceful things with beautiful wings.

    A wing can cover all sorts of things....Indeed, Tori!

    General CommentI love this song. too bad it's not that famous :(.
    I think the magick includes some necromancy cuz the Marianne was referenced in another song, being dead. agree w/ last post on all the rest.

    General CommentIs there some relationship between ceremonial magic and "JANET" the Area 51 transport?

    General CommentI always thought sister Janet was a reference to the "good" sister in Kate Chopin's The Awakening.
