The song that angels sing
The spell that calls the gathering
The magic that might bring
Eternal life, the gathering (the gathering)

I see a world in anger
I see a world in pain
Each day a different story
But still the message is the same
Hard news I set beside me
Sweet dreams is what I need
What daylight wants to show me
At night appears to be insane

May I ask you in?
Shall I...
Shall I persuade you?

The song that angels sing
The spell that calls the gathering
The magic that might bring
Eternal life, the gathering (the gathering)

My cards, the ones to choose from
The role they play tonight
Which ones embrace the loved ones?
Which ones wil summon for a fight

Show me your precious darlings
And I will crush them all
Wave with your blooded sword and
I'll kiss to show I'm not afraid

May I ask you in?
Shall I...
Shall I persuade you?

Repeat chorus

    General CommentI love this song. I love how hey sing

    '...The song that angels sing
    The spell that calls the gathering
    The magic that might bring
    Eternal life, the gathering (the gathering)...'

    I think of white witches when I hear this song. There is something behind these lyrics like that make it powerful/magical like Clannad's celtic lyrics.

    My OpinionI think that this song might be (somewhat) linked to the Magic: The Gathering card game.

    This song also gives me the feel of some other realm or world (which could be presented with the cards, I suppose).

    General Commentim not too sure.
    I think is about Inis Mona, and how it’s was an gathering of Druids from all over but with angels meaning like they brought the message to the druids for the gathering. A bit of Christianly in there but remember Christianity became about before Celts which makes sense if you think about it, or it could mean all the elders in the world gathering too talk about the problems in the world and what to do about them. The next paragraph is saying about the world, like that’s all we hear murders, war, corruption and suchlike, the cat stuck up the tree (lol I kid) 'But still the message is the same' which is true. 'Sweet dreams is what I need, What daylight wants to show me, At night appears to be insane' it could mean that the world needs to sleep in order for everything to go back to the way it should be not the way it is. Like it could be talking about the 2012 thing which the Aztec say, which I think its not what it says I think it will be the change to the way it should be, no famine, nothing bad and I hope it does come. When the song said the 'Ty cards, the ones to choose from, The role they play tonight, Which ones embrace the loved ones? , Which ones will summon for a fight' could be about what fate cards will play to make it happen and who will she pick to lead it or tarot cards?
    Any thought on what I think about it?
