The Lamia  Genesis





[B/Eb]The scent grows [C#6]richer,
he [B6]knows he must be [A#m7]here,
He [E/G#]finds a long [Ebm/F#]passageway lit by
[Fm7/5-]chandelier.
[B/Eb]Each step he takes, the [C#6]perfumes change
From fa[B6]miliar fragrance to [A#m7]flavours strange.
[E/G#]A magnificent [Ebm/F#]chamber meets his
[Fm7]eye.  [E7+]
[]  [G#m/Eb]        [E]   [G#m7/F#]         [E]   [B/Eb]      [B4/E]     [B/Eb] [E7+] []
[B/Eb]Inside, a long [C#6]rose-water pool
is [B6]shrouded by fine [A#m7]mist.
Ste[E/G#]pping in the moist [Ebm/F#]silence, with a
[Fm7/5-]warm breeze he's gently kissed.
[B/Eb]Thinking he is [C#6]quite alone,
He [B6]enters the room, as if it [A#m7]were his own
But [E/G#]ripples on the s[Ebm/F#]weet pink water
[Fm7/5-]Reveal some company unthought of -
[Cm]Rael s[Ab/C]tands as[Cm7]tonished [Ab/C]doubting his [Bb6]sight,
Struck by [Ab7+]beauty, gripped in[Eb] fright[Eb/D];
[Cm]Three ver-[Ab/C]milion s[Cm7]nakes of [Ab/C]female [Bb6]face
The smallest [Ab7+]motion, filled with [Eb]grace.[F]
[Gm]Muted [Dm]melodies [F7+]fill the [C7+]echoing [D]hall,
[Gm]But there [Dm]is no [F7+]sign of [C7+]warning [F7+]in the [C7+/9]siren's [D]call:
"[Gm]Rael [Dm]welcome, [Am/E]we are the [Em]Lamia  [Bm]of the [F#m]pool.[C#m]     [G#m]
[A]We have been [E]waiting [A]for our [E]waters to [F#m]bring you [C#m]cool."
[]  [F#m]     [C#/F]      [Eb4/Bb]        [Bb]    [Ebm/Bb]        [Bb7]   [Bb] []
Piano Solo: ( Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 Fm/Bb C#m/F# )

[B/Eb]Putting fear be[C#6]side him,
he [B6]trusts in beauty [A#m7]blind
He s[E/G#]lips into the [Ebm/F#]nectar, leaving his
sh[Fm7/5-]redded clothes behind.

[B/Eb]"With their tongues, they [C#6]test, taste and judge
[B6]all that is [A#m7]mine.
They [E/G#]move in a [Ebm/F#]series of caresses
That [Fm7]glide up and down my s[E7+]pine.
[]  [G#m/Eb]        [E]   [G#m7/F#]         [E]   [B/Eb]      [B4/E]     [B/Eb] [E7+] []
[B/Eb]As they nibble the [C#6]fruit of my flesh,
[B6]I feel no [A#m7]pain,
[E/G#]Only a [Ebm/F#]magic that a
[Fm7/5-]name would stain.
[B/Eb]With the first drop of my b[C#6]lood in their veins
Their [B6]faces are convulsed [A#m7]in mortal pains.
The [E/G#]fairest cries, 'We [Ebm/F#]all have loved you,
[Fm7/5-]Rael'."
[Cm]Each [Ab/C]empty s[Cm7]nakelike [Ab/C]body f[Bb6]loats,
Silent [Ab7+]sorrow in empty [Eb]boats. [Eb/D]
[Cm]A s[Ab/C]ickly [Cm7]sourness [Ab/C]fills the [Bb6]room,
The bitter [Ab7+]harvest of a dying b[Eb]loom. [F]
[Gm]Looking for [Dm]motion I [F7+]know I [C7+]will not [D]find,
[Gm]I stroke the [Dm]curls now [F7+]turning [C7+]pale, in [F7+]which I'd [C7+/9]lain ent[D]wined.
"[Gm]Oh [Dm]Lamia, your f[Am/E]lesh that re[Em]mains I will [Bm]take as [F#m]my fo[C#m]od." [G#m]
[A]It is the sce[E]nt of [A]garlic that [E]lingers on [F#m]my chocolate [C#m]fingers.
[]  [F#m]     [C#/F]      [Eb4/Bb]        [Bb]    [Ebm/Bb]        [Bb7]   [Bb] []
Piano Solo: ( Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 Fm/Bb C#m/F# )

[B/Eb]Looking be[C#6]hind me,
the [B6]water turns icy [A#m7]blue,
The [E/G#]lights are dimmed and [Ebm/F#]once again the s[Fm7/5-]tage is set for you.
