Songs and Lyrics from the album HEKATE AND THE OTHERWORLD

Summoning

Night Wandering Queen   Of the world below

Queen of the Witches   Flanked by baying beasts

Mother of Phantoms   And the raging furies

Summoning the ghosts   Of the underworld

Her attendants are the restless dead

Brings forth ghosts from tombs

Calls down bones from warm pyres

Under a dark dark moon

Come Hekate come, Take heed

Come Hekate come

Avenge me 

O Infernal One   Avenging goddess

Queen of the witches   Dark mother rise

Call up your shades   Of the Mighty Dead

Raise your accursed form   Take heed

Her attendants are the restless dead

Brings forth ghosts from tombs

Calls down bones from warm pyres

Under a dark dark moon

Come Hekate come, Send up phantoms of the dead

 Take heed, They perform the deed

Come Hekate come, Send up phantoms of the dead

Take heed, They perform the deed

Come Hekate come, Send up phantoms

Avenge me!

Hekate's Secret Keys

Black as Night   Beyond the grave

Through the underworld   To the cave

Pale the light   The torches gave

White as stars   Her ghostly shades

Hekate Hekate Hekate Hekate

Keeper of   A secret key

Unlocks the gateway   Of liminality

Where the dark blood lies   The curses bind

In the deepest depths of night   She abides

Hekate Hekate Hekate Hekate

Slips of yew   The moon's eclipse

New fallen dew she presses   To her lips

This Her brew   It leads betwixt

The Otherworld and this   Sweet oblivion's kiss

Hekate Hekate Hekate Hekate

Dark Goddess of the Crossroads 

Dark Goddess of the Crossroads  

I beacon ghosts to appear 

In silence when you are near 

Dark Goddess of the Crossroads 

Draw the moon down from the sky 

Hekate Queen of the night 

Dark Goddess of the Crossroads

Hekate’s Darkened Hex 

I call upon this darkened spell 

With the Moon’s decreasing light 

By the mysteries of the deep 

By the silence of the night 

Hekate, Hekate, Hekate, Hekate 

I scribe the charms on crimson wax 

To bind the tongues who gave me plight 

Target well, their mouths to vex 

Here now, I place this fix* (*defixio)

Ooooo, Ooooo, Oooooo, Ooooo 

Hear now my judicial prayer 

Goddess of the midnight deep 

By crimson wax, I do avow 

This curse upon them, long to keep 

Hekate, Hekate, Hekate, Hekate 

Fulfill for me this perfect charm 

Carved upon my crimson wax 

By the silence of the night 

I call upon this darkened hex 

Hekate, Hekate, Hekate, Hekate 

Ooooo, Ooooo, Oooooo, Ooooo

Dark Moon Hekate 

Goddess of the land, the sea and sky 

By the light of fire, torches high 

By the ghosts that wander through the shades 

At your crossed roads, the supper’s laid 

Dark Moon Hekate, Dark Moon Hekate 

Work your magick, help us find the key 

Open our eyes, mistress of prophecy 

O the hounds in the distance, hear them bay 

On this dark night, help us find our way 

Dark Moon Hekate, Dark Moon Hekate 

Dark Moon Hekate, Dark Moon Hekate 

Lady of the Holy Death and Shades 

Help us understand your hidden ways 

Rend the veil, let us see beyond 

Till the spinning wheel of destiny is found 

Dark Moon Hekate, Dark Moon Hekate 

Dark Moon Hekate, Dark Moon Hekate
