Lyrics

Powderburn

Written By: Terry McArthur

Powderburn

Mother Mary I confess to my state of nakedness
I am bitter and I am wild , I am the tortured only child
Mother Mary hear me out , I am full of many doubts
I am dark and ancient bile, the twisted killer imbecile
Mother Mary I confess to my state of real distress
I know I ought to pray but my hands won’t fold
And my fingers stray

Powderburn- let me powder burn in the heat of the night
Powderburn – turn my darkness into the light

Mother Mary I confess to my hate and willfulness
I am shameless and I am yours, I am the beast you can’t ignore
Mother Mary I confess I love you more I need you less
I am the flesh you devour , the sacred pain, the lust for power
Mother Mary I confess to all this talk of worldliness
I know I ought to pray but my hands won’t fold
And my fingers stray

Powderburn- let me powder burn in the heat of the night
Powderburn – turn my darkness into the light
Powderburn

One Last Time Again

Written By: Terry McArthur

One Last Time Again

There is a light that shines so bright
It swallows up the blackness of the night
There is no pain inside this light
No-one you ever have to fight

Oh we watched you burning in the name
Of those who swore protection
We saw the heartless hunters who
Stole your affection
And when it came time to carry you back home
There was nothing left to say
For one who burnt so very bright
The darkness just carried you away

Let’s dance
Let’s dance for all we’ve become
Let’s dance for all these things
That cannot be undone
Let’s dance one last time again
One last time again

There is a circle made of fame
Beyond both praise and blame
In this circle you were the king
Making songs for us to sing

We watched you calling out our name
Searching for connection
We saw you falling way too fast
An exile no direction
And when it came time to carry you back home
There was nothing left to say
For one who burnt so very bright
The darkness just carried you away

Let’s dance
Let’s dance for all we’ve become
Let’s dance for all these things
That cannot be undone
Let’s dance one last time again
One last time again
