The Lamia

Genesis





 B/EbC#6
 The scent grows richer,
 B6A#m7
he knows he must be here,
 E/G#Ebm/F#
He finds a long passageway lit by
 Fm7/5-
 chandelier.

 B/EbC#6
 Each step he takes, the perfumes change
 B6A#m7
From familiar fragrance to flavours strange.
 E/G#Ebm/F#
 A magnificent chamber meets his
 Fm7E7+
 eye.   

 G#m/EbEG#m7/F#EB/EbB4/EB/EbE7+
[]                                      []
 B/EbC#6
 Inside, a long rose-water pool
 B6A#m7
is shrouded by fine mist.
 E/G#Ebm/F#
Stepping in the moist silence, with a
 Fm7/5-
 warm breeze he's gently kissed.

 B/EbC#6
 Thinking he is quite alone,
 B6A#m7
He enters the room, as if it were his own
 E/G#Ebm/F#
But ripples on the sweet pink water
 Fm7/5-
 Reveal some company unthought of -

 CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
 Rael stands astonished doubting his sight,
 Ab7+EbEb/D
Struck by beauty, gripped in fright;
 CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
 Three ver-milion snakes of female face
 Ab7+EbF
The smallest motion, filled with grace. 

 GmDmF7+C7+D
 Muted melodies fill the echoing hall,
 GmDmF7+C7+F7+C7+/9D
 But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call:
 GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mG#m
"Rael welcome, we are the Lamia  of the pool.      
 AEAEF#mC#m
 We have been waiting for our waters to bring you cool."

 F#mC#/FEb4/BbBbEbm/BbBb7Bb
[]                                     []
Piano Solo: ( Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 Fm/Bb C#m/F# )

 B/EbC#6
 Putting fear beside him,
 B6A#m7
he trusts in beauty blind
 E/G#Ebm/F#
He slips into the nectar, leaving his
 Fm7/5-
shredded clothes behind.

 B/EbC#6
 "With their tongues, they test, taste and judge
 B6A#m7
 all that is mine.
 E/G#Ebm/F#
They move in a series of caresses
 Fm7E7+
That glide up and down my spine.

 G#m/EbEG#m7/F#EB/EbB4/EB/EbE7+
[]                                      []
 B/EbC#6
 As they nibble the fruit of my flesh,
 B6A#m7
 I feel no pain,
 E/G#Ebm/F#
 Only a magic that a
 Fm7/5-
 name would stain.

 B/EbC#6
 With the first drop of my blood in their veins
 B6A#m7
Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains.
 E/G#Ebm/F#
The fairest cries, 'We all have loved you,
 Fm7/5-
 Rael'."

 CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
 Each empty snakelike body floats,
 Ab7+EbEb/D
Silent sorrow in empty boats.  
 CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
 A sickly sourness fills the room,
 Ab7+EbF
The bitter harvest of a dying bloom.  

 GmDmF7+C7+D
 Looking for motion I know I will not find,
 GmDmF7+C7+F7+C7+/9D
 I stroke the curls now turning pale, in which I'd lain entwined.
 GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mG#m
"Oh Lamia, your flesh that remains I will take as my food."  
 AEAEF#mC#m
 It is the scent of garlic that lingers on my chocolate fingers.

 F#mC#/FEb4/BbBbEbm/BbBb7Bb
[]                                     []
Piano Solo: ( Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 C#7+/F Eb7 Fm/Bb C#m/F# )

 B/EbC#6
 Looking behind me,
 B6A#m7
the water turns icy blue,
 E/G#Ebm/F#Fm7/5-
The lights are dimmed and once again the stage is set for you.
