Ravens

If Raven called your name one night
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Would twelve more Ravens chant in time?
Hey Nana hey na hey

Death comes early, death comes mean
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
But all Mama’s children return to the Dreamtime
Hey Nana hey na hey

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

If I should die before I wake
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
How many Ravens would my soul make?
Hey Nana hey na hey

One crow sorrow, two crows mirth
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Three crows a wedding and four crows birth
Hey Nana hey na hey

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

We sing “Earth my body, Water my blood
Air my breath and Fire my spirit”
Earth my body, Water my blood
Mother may you take my body when it’s cold!

Shadow of a raven lands on a wire
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Sun goes down like stone on fire
Hey Nana hey na hey

Rhythm of the bone, the blood in the heart
Hey Mama, hey nana, hey na nay
Sings “Merry meet and merry part
and merry meet again!”

Yo Evohe! Yo Evohe!

We sing “Earth my body, Water my blood
Air my breath and Fire my spirit”
Earth my body, Water my blood
Mother may you take my body….

The more I listen to this band, the more I love them.  Seriously versatile and changing and alive.  

I recently went to the bands website for the first time.  I  was delighted by their tag line:


– Music for the Freethinking Mystic in all of us!


 I resemble that remark.  🙂    

Aparently  there has been a name change.  GaiaConsort is now  BONE POETS ORCHESTRA

Anyway, they’ve posted all the music and lyrics (6 albums )  so for more, check them out

MUSIC & LYRICS

We’ve put just about all the tunes up in their entirety here in mp3 format. The music is meant to be shared, not bottled up where only a few can hear it! …

via Gaia Consort – Music for the Freethinking Mystic in all of us!.

I had gone looking for the lyrics to Gathering.  From the album Gaia Circles.  I’m especially fond of the last part of the song.  

 Gathering

From the East and in-breath of dawn
From the South, where fire is born
From the West, where the water is rising
From the North, where Gaia calls home
We have come to offer our story
We have come to open the well
It is balance we’re seeking in all things
We have come to offer our selvesSalmon in the streambed, Raven in the sky
Will you be the voice of Gaia?
Willow in the marsh grass, Redwing fly
Will you be the voice of the worldLizard on the rock face, tongue flick air
Will you be the voice of Gaia?
Heron on the tideflat, Great Brown Bear
Will you be the voice of the world?Building up a bonfire – calling back the light
Calling up a green man – WE ARE GATHERING
Calling up a storm cloud -calling back the light
Calling up a horned one – WE ARE GATHERINGHere – nowThe light on the leaves which brings flesh to the bone
which makes possible love and the dancing allowed
The salt in the sea & the sunlight reflected
like jewels in the mist that the forest will breath
The brush of the skin against skin and the nerve
that will carry the song to the tongue and the mind
The air in my lungs that feeds the fire in my blood
that brings the life to my heart and my reason for beingBuilding up a bonfire – calling back the light
Calling up a green man – WE ARE GATHERING
Calling up a storm cloud -calling back the light
Calling up a horned one – WE ARE GATHERING

We have come to be part of a healing
We have come to celebrate life
As we wake her, Gaia she’s dreaming
We have come to call back the light

Salmon in the streambed, Raven in the sky
Will you be the voice of Gaia?
Willow in the marsh grass, Redwing fly
Will you be the voice of the world

Lizard on the rock face, tongue flick air
Will you be the voice of Gaia?
Heron on the tideflat, Great Brown Bear
Will you be the voice of the world?

Building up a bonfire – calling back the light
Calling up a green man – WE ARE GATHERING
Calling up a storm cloud -calling back the light
Calling up a horned one – WE ARE GATHERING

Calling up a whirlwind – calling back the light
Calling up a Wild Thing – WE ARE GATHERING
Lovers in the Dark Moon – calling back the light
Calling up an Oak King – WE ARE GATHERING

Jen and Mike are freakin’ out cause Jen had unprotected sex

With Raven at a party and now Morgan’s got a sore (Oh!)

Raven isn’t calling back and they’re all having heart attacks

and Morgan isn’t sure if she is poly anymore

Chorus:

Oh, if we all dream together

Oh, Can we nightmare too?

Oh, is it love or just pleasure –

Tasting everybody like we’re candied fruit

Daniel was player, Daniel slept in everybody’s bed

but now he’s feeling guilty for the screwin that he did

He’s moving back to Omaha, he’s moving back to live with ma

He says he’s got religion and he’s suing for the kids

Chorus:

Oh, if we all dream together

Oh, Can we nightmare too?

Oh, is it love or just pleasure –

Tasting everybody like we’re candied fruit

Hot

Hot bi babe!

Hot bi, Hot bi, hot bi babe!

Hot bi babe! Hot bi babe!

Hot bi, Hot bi, Hot bi, Hot bi…

Chorus:

Oh, if we all dream together

Oh, Can we nightmare too?

Oh, is it love or just pleasure –

Tasting everybody like we’re candied fruit

 

Secondary, tertiary, don’t believe in

heiar-achy

Don’t believe in down below or putting up above

We’re not afraid of standing out

Not afraid to scream and shout

What’s got us terrified that we’ll really fall in love

Chorus:

Oh, if we all dream together

Oh, Can we nightmare too?

Oh, is it love or just pleasure –

Tasting everybody like we’re candied fruit

Mike
