"The Wizard" as written by and Natasha Khan....
Doing the mess around
Push me down into the ground
Taste the hands that drink my body

Fight me in the dark
Wrestle your bones over mine
Into our moonless march come the wizard

Come, the wizard comes
The wizard comes
The wizard comes
The wizard comes

Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader
Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader

Trembling midnight lands
I travel with the wizard
Drink his blood and he's our leader

Breath songs in my head
Slow arrow flies, are burning
And the trouble we possess
While the sunshine goes on sleeping
The sunshine

Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader
Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader

Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader
Wants to feel you shake and shooting
He will be our leader

    General CommentTo go along with sparrowonthewing, I watched an interview where Natasha sort of explained that it's about the sort of sexual tension and desire between two people and how the wizard is the force that comes and spurs (would-be) lovers into action. I really love the way she ran with that idea, the imagery is so beautiful... I like the sort of ritualistic idea of drinking his blood, becoming a follower of desire. Natasha's head must be such an interesting place, no? :]

    General Commenthonestly, when i listen to the words of this song, and considering how bfl writes, i get the feeling this song is actually about a tribe, or group, where a "wizard" almost sort of takes control of the group. the first few lines of the song sound extremely sexual, and it seems to me that the wizard sort of takes advantage of the women, but they don't really fight back because "he will be our leader."

    it really just reminds me of jungle tribes, where this does happen a lot. older men in the group, usually the "mystics" have multiple sexual relations with a lot of the younger women in the tribe, but they're allowed to do so because the mystic claims that he'll be able to predict their futures or that sleeping with him will mean they will have a prosperous life.

    that's just what i get out of the song.

    General CommentI love how her lyrics are always so imaginative, it's like she just writes down her dreams and fantasies.

    I can just imagine living in a forest when i listen to this song, i completely agree with 'keereerar's comment.

    General CommentI think this song is about orgasming. It is her way of describing the way that an orgasm and sexual pleasure enters the nighttime activities of the lovers like a spirit being summoned. It's talking about the way that the lovers offer themselve into the control of this personification of sexual pleasure and their own desires are blended into his final aim of feeling them "shake and shooting"

    I love the way that she interprets real experiences in sexuality and in relationships in a way that makes them mystical and beautiful.

    General Commenti really really like this song! it's so haunting. and pretty. it floats and dances and makes you feel all magical.
    what i got from it was just magic and electricity, something with power that's hidden behind that sweet voice. i was quite freaked out by the "drink his blood and he's our leader" part, and um im still confused by it.
    one angle i got was that, there's this girl in trouble, she's fighting and being beaten, so she calls for help and a wizard comes and saves her. but. because of this she has to um...become a follower or something? swear allegiance haha? some ritual like drinking his blood. then she's let inside his head or world of magic, and it's filled with songs and slow arrows and burning and they become connected and fight together.

    hum. i dont like putting a set story or set of events in an ambiguous song, this is just a fancy of mine. but. i definitely dont like connecting it to harry potter, all i have to do is imagine daniel radclyffe and cringe...
