Ancient symbols on the walls of my bower
Through my veins I can feel the power
In the light of a thousand flames
I call thee by secret names

No matter how loud I pray
No answer will be my pay
Oh, high mother of hysteria
Teach me thy unholy santeria

Can you see the darkness in our hearts?
Can you see the lightning in our hands?
Do you love us still? Mother?

Sweet silence adorns my body
Blood red is on my skin
In the distance a thunder profound
I've chased the dragon homeward bound

Can you see the darkness in our hearts?
Can you see the lightning in our hands?
Do you love us still? Mother?

Am I required to burn
As a witch, should I twist and turn
On the fires of your love? Mother?
