DEITIES (2013)


  • 1. LAWFUL NEUTRAL


    she was crawling across the kitchen floor
    I was sleeping dreaming of the war
    harpys singing
    she don’t know the song, no
    and I saw the sorry scribble in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned
    malefactor
    ally to herself
    roguish actor
    plus 10 to her stealth
    nothing missing that she couldn’t bear
    set traps for rigging
    and I saw the sorry scribbles in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned

  • 2. CONSTITUTION


    to bravely attack the wight
    to lose oneʼs head but not to lose the fight
    my baby, she wait at home
    a trusted warlord delivers my bones
    she take my remains to the local priests
    she offers silver and fall to her knees, pleading
    she loves me
    she loves me so
    wonʼt let me go
    and I awake whole again
    lit by the soft warmth of the bedroom window where within
    she and I lie so peacefully
    I once was dead
    now I am not
    what is happening?
    Baphomet, the Horned King,
    a stubborn goat ainʼt got nothing on me
    gotta get loot
    gonna get paid
    gotta skill up
    gonna come back if i get killed today
    my baby, she wait for proof
    her constitution going through the roof
    the minotaur can be a bullish breed
    but they grow weary when they start to bleed
    not me
    oh Wee Jas
    I pray on you to brace my lover for my loss
    she couldnʼt know that loving me would have such costs
    she didn’t know to think such thoughts
    she couldnʼt know her heart would be in knots
    oh, my little Jasidin
    as selfless as she wanna be
    sheʼs scooping up whatʼs left of me
    and I awake whole again
    lit by the soft warmth of the bedroom window where within
    she and I lie so peacefully
    I once was dead
    now I am not
    what is happening?

  • 3. PROPHETIC HEART


    itʼs been two days, weʼre in love
    she fits me like a +2 glove
    how could i tell her at the start?
    my blood’s pumping through a prophetic heart
    itʼs been two weeks carrying on
    she left her sister with her mother and she quit her job
    how could I tell her at the start?
    my blood’s pumping through a prophetic heart
    and when we go down to the river for a summery day
    I already know everything that sheʼs gonna say
    but I play pretend
    my nodding never ends
    oh, raven queen remove from me the gift you gave
    no more prophecy
    itʼs been one year since we met
    sheʼs with child, I regret
    how could I tell her?
    no black art could compel my prophetic heart

  • 4. YEENOGHU


    Yeenoghu, destroyer
    destroy me for turning from you
    a maiden, a beauty,
    a love no abyss could undo
    oh master of mine,
    please give me a sign
    oh grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu
    I want her so badly
    her magic I cannot resist
    I have to be with her
    to have her is my only wish
    oh master of mine,
    please give me a sign
    oh grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu
    and her bitter blessings blow my heart away
    I’m at your feet, on my knees I pray
    for a favor from you
    Lord Yeenoghu
    I tremble
    I whimper
    I fumble
    I lose my mind
    my words have no meaning
    I need her, she will be mine
    oh master I plead
    please fulfill my need
    or grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu

  • 5. SHAPESHIFTER


    oh, ehlonna
    I don’t know what I should do
    I don’t know my own heart
    I don’t fit in my skin
    I feel so askew
    she says she loves me
    why she asking me to change
    in familiar form
    into size not my own
    into a beastly shape
    I was the raven who scouted her skies
    (she feel my blackened feather)
    finding her flowers with my nimble eyes
    (we look so good together)
    but when I changed back I gave her such a fright
    I was once her shapeshifter
    but I won’t be tonight
    give me the wisdom to know what I can’t understand
    why my own lover don’t love me when I’m my own man
    why I’m coerced to become
    a companion
    ehlenestra,
    hope you hear my sylvan song
    I’ve been sleeping inside
    I’ve been burning the earth
    to make myself feel right
    and I was the raven who scouted her skies
    (she feel my blackened feather)
    feeding her berries and cawing my lies
    (we look so good together)
    but when I changed back I gave her such a fright
    I was once her shapeshifter
    but I won’t be tonight

  • 6. HOLD ONTO US


    we had set out
    packed all our clothes and things,
    adorned with rings, alive with life,
    to a place by the sea.
    you’d had a dream
    said there were “places to go”
    places to go
    places to go within reach
    so we set astride,
    with the compass my father had with him the day that he died
    with a feeling inside us there was nothing to fear
    as long as we hold onto us
    the future is clear
    the place that we found
    a little different for me
    A difference for me
    indifferent to me
    indifferent to everyone
    but that’s how it goes
    living in foreign lands
    customs and rituals
    I don’t know
    I won’t know
    I can’t know
    so I won’t
    but we said okay,
    we’ll stay until Sehanine Moonbow steals us away
    we won’t run home because there is nothing to fear
    as long as we hold onto us
    the future is clear

    Lyric by Chris Littler
  • 7. OH IO


    home for the day
    I wouldn’t know it
    home doesn’t feel the same as it once did
    home is a place
    far from the current
    far from my heart
    it doesn’t lie anywhere but where my baby’s gone.
    home is where my lover is
    though she currently ain’t telling
    home is where she rests her head
    even with a different fellow
    home is where her body lies
    not that I am even asking.
    home is where I’ll only be if I used the Orb of Seeing
    oh, leave your lover unseen
    leave her memory clean


    Music by Chamber Band
    Lyric by Chris Littler


  • 8. PETITIONER


    she was born in plane
    walked the land from birth
    turned her face from sun
    lost all sense of worth
    she was born to die
    a petitioner
    this kingdom of men
    steeped in castle wall
    as it’s always been
    watch the women fall
    she was born to die
    a petitioner
    she lost her will
    she lost her way
    she gave in to the evil things that serve to tempt you
    she made her mind
    she made her bed
    she made up mine
    pleading for her life
    as the sunlight spies
    hear the boatman’s bell
    giving word to wise
    never had a chance
    a petitioner


    Music by Chamber Band
    Lyric by Chris Littler


  • 9. ASMODEUS


    I went walking one day to the edge of my claim
    where forest meets plain
    worried words whispered low in the taverns of town
    thereʼs evil around
    I took a shortcut through the woods and heard the cultists singing out
    i heard a voice amidst the crowd: was it her?
    her family barn burned to the ground on the night of St. Cuthbertʼs Day her mother got sick and her brother got bit by a Lycan stray
    could this be?
    she saw things a little differently from me
    now I go to her house all covered in moss and reflect on the loss
    who were they to lure my love from me?
    and I hear her people pray all night to that heathen god of hate
    Asmodeus
    I will not join
    I will not cave
    I will be strong
    i will be saved
    I will not be one of them
    with her

    Lyric by Chris Littler


  • 10. GOD OF GREED


    treasure called to us across the hemisphere
    a party of five formed
    the village elder warned, “Only four of you will return here.”
    still we set out on a foggy morn
    two elves and a dragonborn,
    me and my baby left our homes in the care of a friend
    who was sure we’d meet our end
    in the mouth of a manticore
    how could he know?
    oh, no
    that’s tiamat, the god of greed, in tow
    oh, no
    pick your feet up
    we have got to go
    my baby’s fast but she ain’t that fast
    I hear her calling out my name
    attack the world with everything you got
    don’t pause to question none
    you’ll beat the world by one
    you must keep moving while you’re hot
    in the dark led by a holy horn
    two elves and a dragonborn
    death follows where my baby goes
    she’s taking out them trolls
    she’s making all high rolls
    how could she know?
    oh, no
    that’s tiamat, the god of greed, in tow
    oh, no
    pick your feet up
    we have got to go
    my baby’s fast but she ain’t that fast
    I hear her calling out my name one last time
    she is so beautiful all wrapped up in her blanket
    forget she’s all covered in blood
    she says so quietly I almost do not hear her
    go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    we put her on the horse’s back and cross the river
    she looked, to me, as white as snow
    she says so quietly I almost do not hear her
    go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    you know I’m only slowing down the party
    I make her travel so far I start to feel evil
    her breath is fading fast and how
    oh, she says nothing
    but I know what she’d say,
    she’d say, Go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    you know I’m only slowing down the party
    if only I had not been so greedy
    my baby might be standing here beside me

  • 11. SLEEP CHARM


    olidammara
    i live deep in the mountains, banished away
    she is all that can get to me
    she is friend foe and family
    we exchange grumblings
    we make tea
    she don’t look at my ugly face
    stands across and takes in the place
    but I know why my baby comes to me
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to
    olidammara
    there’s a place beside me you can rest your head
    let a hundred winters pass you by
    you are safe beside me in my nice warm bed
    oh what a sweet little lie
    i live deep in the mountains, there I must stay.
    still she comes to see me.
    still she comes to be beside me
    I know why my baby comes to me
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to
    olidammara

    and so we go to sleep beside each other in my little room
    our bodies intertwined at last
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    we scale the mountain and look down upon a city we don’t know
    our hands are clasped so very tight
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    how did we get so old?

DEITIES (2013)


  • 1. LAWFUL NEUTRAL


    she was crawling across the kitchen floor
    I was sleeping dreaming of the war
    harpys singing
    she don’t know the song, no
    and I saw the sorry scribble in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned
    malefactor
    ally to herself
    roguish actor
    plus 10 to her stealth
    nothing missing that she couldn’t bear
    set traps for rigging
    and I saw the sorry scribbles in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned

    our bodies intertwined at last
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    we scale the mountain and look down upon a city we don’t know
    our hands are clasped so very tight
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    how did we get so old?

DEITIES (2013)


  • 1. LAWFUL NEUTRAL


    she was crawling across the kitchen floor
    I was sleeping dreaming of the war
    harpys singing
    she don’t know the song, no
    and I saw the sorry scribble in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned
    malefactor
    ally to herself
    roguish actor
    plus 10 to her stealth
    nothing missing that she couldn’t bear
    set traps for rigging
    and I saw the sorry scribbles in surprise
    she was wrong in trying to be right
    she was lawful to be neutral unaware that she was evil unaligned

  • 2. CONSTITUTION


    to bravely attack the wight
    to lose oneʼs head but not to lose the fight
    my baby, she wait at home
    a trusted warlord delivers my bones
    she take my remains to the local priests
    she offers silver and fall to her knees, pleading
    she loves me
    she loves me so
    wonʼt let me go
    and I awake whole again
    lit by the soft warmth of the bedroom window where within
    she and I lie so peacefully
    I once was dead
    now I am not
    what is happening?
    Baphomet, the Horned King,
    a stubborn goat ainʼt got nothing on me
    gotta get loot
    gonna get paid
    gotta skill up
    gonna come back if i get killed today
    my baby, she wait for proof
    her constitution going through the roof
    the minotaur can be a bullish breed
    but they grow weary when they start to bleed
    not me
    oh Wee Jas
    I pray on you to brace my lover for my loss
    she couldnʼt know that loving me would have such costs
    she didn’t know to think such thoughts
    she couldnʼt know her heart would be in knots
    oh, my little Jasidin
    as selfless as she wanna be
    sheʼs scooping up whatʼs left of me
    and I awake whole again
    lit by the soft warmth of the bedroom window where within
    she and I lie so peacefully
    I once was dead
    now I am not
    what is happening?

  • 3. PROPHETIC HEART


    itʼs been two days, weʼre in love
    she fits me like a +2 glove
    how could i tell her at the start?
    my blood’s pumping through a prophetic heart
    itʼs been two weeks carrying on
    she left her sister with her mother and she quit her job
    how could I tell her at the start?
    my blood’s pumping through a prophetic heart
    and when we go down to the river for a summery day
    I already know everything that sheʼs gonna say
    but I play pretend
    my nodding never ends
    oh, raven queen remove from me the gift you gave
    no more prophecy
    itʼs been one year since we met
    sheʼs with child, I regret
    how could I tell her?
    no black art could compel my prophetic heart

  • 4. YEENOGHU


    Yeenoghu, destroyer
    destroy me for turning from you
    a maiden, a beauty,
    a love no abyss could undo
    oh master of mine,
    please give me a sign
    oh grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu
    I want her so badly
    her magic I cannot resist
    I have to be with her
    to have her is my only wish
    oh master of mine,
    please give me a sign
    oh grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu
    and her bitter blessings blow my heart away
    I’m at your feet, on my knees I pray
    for a favor from you
    Lord Yeenoghu
    I tremble
    I whimper
    I fumble
    I lose my mind
    my words have no meaning
    I need her, she will be mine
    oh master I plead
    please fulfill my need
    or grant me the strength
    to go into town and steal the one that I love away
    oh Yeenoghu

  • 5. SHAPESHIFTER


    oh, ehlonna
    I don’t know what I should do
    I don’t know my own heart
    I don’t fit in my skin
    I feel so askew
    she says she loves me
    why she asking me to change
    in familiar form
    into size not my own
    into a beastly shape
    I was the raven who scouted her skies
    (she feel my blackened feather)
    finding her flowers with my nimble eyes
    (we look so good together)
    but when I changed back I gave her such a fright
    I was once her shapeshifter
    but I won’t be tonight
    give me the wisdom to know what I can’t understand
    why my own lover don’t love me when I’m my own man
    why I’m coerced to become
    a companion
    ehlenestra,
    hope you hear my sylvan song
    I’ve been sleeping inside
    I’ve been burning the earth
    to make myself feel right
    and I was the raven who scouted her skies
    (she feel my blackened feather)
    feeding her berries and cawing my lies
    (we look so good together)
    but when I changed back I gave her such a fright
    I was once her shapeshifter
    but I won’t be tonight

  • 6. HOLD ONTO US


    we had set out
    packed all our clothes and things,
    adorned with rings, alive with life,
    to a place by the sea.
    you’d had a dream
    said there were “places to go”
    places to go
    places to go within reach
    so we set astride,
    with the compass my father had with him the day that he died
    with a feeling inside us there was nothing to fear
    as long as we hold onto us
    the future is clear
    the place that we found
    a little different for me
    A difference for me
    indifferent to me
    indifferent to everyone
    but that’s how it goes
    living in foreign lands
    customs and rituals
    I don’t know
    I won’t know
    I can’t know
    so I won’t
    but we said okay,
    we’ll stay until Sehanine Moonbow steals us away
    we won’t run home because there is nothing to fear
    as long as we hold onto us
    the future is clear

  • 7. OH IO


    home for the day
    I wouldn’t know it
    home doesn’t feel the same as it once did
    home is a place
    far from the current
    far from my heart
    it doesn’t lie anywhere but where my baby’s gone.
    home is where my lover is
    though she currently ain’t telling
    home is where she rests her head
    even with a different fellow
    home is where her body lies
    not that I am even asking.
    home is where I’ll only be if I used the Orb of Seeing
    oh, leave your lover unseen
    leave her memory clean

  • 8. PETITIONER


    she was born in plane
    walked the land from birth
    turned her face from sun
    lost all sense of worth
    she was born to die
    a petitioner
    this kingdom of men
    steeped in castle wall
    as it’s always been
    watch the women fall
    she was born to die
    a petitioner
    she lost her will
    she lost her way
    she gave in to the evil things that serve to tempt you
    she made her mind
    she made her bed
    she made up mine
    pleading for her life
    as the sunlight spies
    hear the boatman’s bell
    giving word to wise
    never had a chance
    a petitioner

  • 9. ASMODEUS


    I went walking one day to the edge of my claim
    where forest meets plain
    worried words whispered low in the taverns of town
    thereʼs evil around
    I took a shortcut through the woods and heard the cultists singing out
    i heard a voice amidst the crowd: was it her?
    her family barn burned to the ground on the night of St. Cuthbertʼs Day her mother got sick and her brother got bit by a Lycan stray
    could this be?
    she saw things a little differently from me
    now I go to her house all covered in moss and reflect on the loss
    who were they to lure my love from me?
    and I hear her people pray all night to that heathen god of hate
    Asmodeus
    I will not join
    I will not cave
    I will be strong
    i will be saved
    I will not be one of them
    with her

  • 10. GOD OF GREED


    treasure called to us across the hemisphere
    a party of five formed
    the village elder warned, “Only four of you will return here.”
    still we set out on a foggy morn
    two elves and a dragonborn,
    me and my baby left our homes in the care of a friend
    who was sure we’d meet our end
    in the mouth of a manticore
    how could he know?
    oh, no
    that’s tiamat, the god of greed, in tow
    oh, no
    pick your feet up
    we have got to go
    my baby’s fast but she ain’t that fast
    I hear her calling out my name
    attack the world with everything you got
    don’t pause to question none
    you’ll beat the world by one
    you must keep moving while you’re hot
    in the dark led by a holy horn
    two elves and a dragonborn
    death follows where my baby goes
    she’s taking out them trolls
    she’s making all high rolls
    how could she know?
    oh, no
    that’s tiamat, the god of greed, in tow
    oh, no
    pick your feet up
    we have got to go
    my baby’s fast but she ain’t that fast
    I hear her calling out my name one last time
    she is so beautiful all wrapped up in her blanket
    forget she’s all covered in blood
    she says so quietly I almost do not hear her
    go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    we put her on the horse’s back and cross the river
    she looked, to me, as white as snow
    she says so quietly I almost do not hear her
    go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    you know I’m only slowing down the party
    I make her travel so far I start to feel evil
    her breath is fading fast and how
    oh, she says nothing
    but I know what she’d say,
    she’d say, Go on, go on, go on, go on without me
    you know I’m only slowing down the party
    if only I had not been so greedy
    my baby might be standing here beside me

  • 11. SLEEP CHARM


    olidammara
    i live deep in the mountains, banished away
    she is all that can get to me
    she is friend foe and family
    we exchange grumblings
    we make tea
    she don’t look at my ugly face
    stands across and takes in the place
    but I know why my baby comes to me
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to
    olidammara
    there’s a place beside me you can rest your head
    let a hundred winters pass you by
    you are safe beside me in my nice warm bed
    oh what a sweet little lie
    i live deep in the mountains, there I must stay.
    still she comes to see me.
    still she comes to be beside me
    I know why my baby comes to me
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    coz I can stick out my hand and say go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to sleep
    all go to
    olidammara

    and so we go to sleep beside each other in my little room
    our bodies intertwined at last
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    we scale the mountain and look down upon a city we don’t know
    our hands are clasped so very tight
    then lo lo lo lo and behold
    we woke up from our dream feeling oh so old
    how did we get so old?
