about

originally from the "Maiden" EP in the Maiden, Mother, Crone EP trilogy. A song about the absurdity (and horror) of gender/ gendering rituals.

lyrics

Insiders - they told me
"Bow your head and do this slowly"
Their hands pulled words from stories
thrown to halves by flame and heresay.

The shaking rhythm, carving
silhouettes: allowed or wanting.
Counter-tones from the other side
where the other half of tales are tried
I saw their eyes, those frightened boys
as ritual rose above our voices.

I've done for you, I've done for you.

Our dancing is required
and feet will bleed when bones are tired, our
two circles, pink and blue
will move in opposites and rules,
and oh their voices, should we stray
from paths as smooth and cold as clay say:

I've done for you, I've done for you.
I've done for you, I've done for you.
