Under the darkened, Ancient oak
Gentle in the nights breeze
I stop and stare, rest a while
With hands upon my knees
Through jades leaves, bush and scrub
I spy my journeys end
Black it looms, silent gloom
The castle called Avend
On I trot, past forest eyes
Past horrors of the night
Through the dark, I see a sign
A gently glowing light

Upon reaching the castle I ascend the ivy
Towards the golden window
My heart pounds and my breath is rushed
As I fight both brick and branch
The ledge is mine and over I sweep
Silent like the falling snow
Quiet, I slip across the polished floow
Tonight, I will dine with chance

The Blue Lotus, a legend, I thought a myth
Old poems and stories gone
A beauty of unimaginable lust
Both men's hearts, and Gods, were won
Skin like milk, an angels face
They say her smile could kill
Her hair the blackest of all black
Stories I thought though, still

So there she lay, sleeping upon the bed
Half covered by fantastic silks
Her breast I see, moves with her dreams
A sight I will always recall
A single candle that showed me the way
Through forest, river and hills
Glows upon that lovely skin
Shadows dancing around the walls

Closer I creep, toward my prize
The Blue Lotus lies before me
Her lips are full, red as blood
Moist as they invite me
Stoop I did to kiss those lips
In that glowing room
When suddenly, she did awake,
Her eyes filled with doom
From silks, her hands wer round my neck
Escape there was no hope
A brief flash of teeth is all that I saw
And gone was my throat
Her bloodlust deep, she swallowed me
Red was all I saw
She drank her fill and watched me fall
Gently to the floor

A league away my death is found
By locals who tend this land
Who lay me down in shallow earth
A single Lotus placed in my hand.

    General CommentWow! This one is so epic! I've done a bit of research into what blue lotuses symbolise (I've got nothing better to do). Apparently:

    Many ancient cultures found the blue lotus to be of great use and of esteemed status. In Asia and Africa, the blue lotus symbolized immortality in recognition of the plant's ability to survive and resprout after long droughts, and the seed's ability to remain viable for many years (Edwards, 1998). In China it was regarded as a religious symbol, and a symbol of feminine beauty.

    So this fits in with my idea that she is some kind of beautiful vampiress (is there any other kind?) and so now, presumably, he is a vampire too!

    General CommentHmm. Sounds like the story of Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose with a twist, i.e., her being a vampire.

    Awesome song. ^__^

    General CommentI love the vocal styles going on here, nicely meloncholy and kind of strung-out sounding; interesting.

    Some kind of ancient warrior is questing to find some vampire princess type character and comes to a castle where he quietly enters, finding a candle-lit chamber where she sleeps. He slowly approaches (I'm note sure if he seeks to kill her or rape her, or who the hell knows...) her and gets mezmerized by her beauty, reflecting on things he's heard of her beauty, so he goes to softy kiss her while she lays there, possibly already aware of his presence. He notices the rhythm of her breasts moving as she breaths. She suddenly awakens and attacks him very aggressively, an interesting ironic twist considering her outward appearance. She apparently draws blood and in the midst of the struggle drinks some of it. I beleive he emerges from his unseccessful quest alive, or was it successful? He got owned by a chick, though, that's all that matters. What a wuss.

    I live in Northwest Arkansas, Page played this little beaut during the 'Weekly Beating', that's when I heard for the first time. I've always had ideas for a cool music video/animation for the song because it's onw of those full of imagery songs, good ol' medieval vampire stuff.
