[Verse]
B/Eb            C#6
The scent grows richer,
   B6               A#m7
he knows he must be here,
   E/G#         Ebm/F#
He finds a long passageway lit by
Fm7/5
chandelier.
B/Eb                    C#6
Each step he takes, the perfumes change
       B6                  A#m7
From familiar fragrance to flavours strange.
E/G#          Ebm/F#
A magnificent chamber meets his 
Fm7   E7+
eye.

[Instrumental]
G#m/Eb  E  G#m7/F#  E  B/Eb  B4/E  B/Eb  E7+

[Verse]
B/Eb           C#6
Inside, a long rose-water pool
   B6               A#m7
is shrouded by fine mist.
   E/G#               Ebm/F#
Stepping in the moist silence, with a 
Fm7/5
warm breeze he's gently kissed.
B/Eb           C#6
Thinking he is quite alone, 
   B6                        A#m7
He enters the room, as if it were his own
    E/G#            Ebm/F#
But ripples on the sweet pink water 
Fm7/5
Reveal some company unthought of
Cm    Ab/C    Cm7      Ab/C         Bb6
Rael stands astonished doubting his sight,
          Ab7+              Eb     Eb/D 
Struck by beauty, gripped in fright;
Cm        Ab/C    Cm7      Ab/C   Bb6
Three ver-milion snakes of female face
             Ab7+                Eb    F
The smallest motion, filled with grace.
Gm    Dm       F7+      C7+     D
Muted melodies fill the echoing hall,
Gm        Dm    F7+     C7+     F7+    C7+/9   D
But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call:
 Gm   Dm       Am/E       Em     Bm     F#m  C#m  G#m 
"Rael welcome, we are the Lamia  of the pool.
A            E       A       E         F#m       C#m
We have been waiting for our waters to bring you cool."
F#m  C#/F  Eb4/Bb  Bb  Ebm/Bb  Bb7  Bb

[Piano Solo] 
Eb7  C#7+/F  Eb7  C#7+/F  Eb7  Fm/Bb  C#m/F#

[Verse]
B/Eb           C#6
Putting fear beside him, 
   B6               A#m7
he trusts in beauty blind 
    E/G#          Ebm/F#
He slips into the nectar, leaving his 
  Fm7/5
shredded clothes behind.
B/Eb                      C#6
"With their tongues, they test, taste and judge 
B6          A#m7
all that is mine.
     E/G#      Ebm/F#
They move in a series of caresses
     Fm7                   E7+
That glide up and down my spine.
G#m/Eb  E  G#m7/F#  E  B/Eb  B4/E  B/Eb  E7+
B/Eb               C#6
As they nibble the fruit of my flesh, 
B6        A#m7
I feel no pain,
E/G#   Ebm/F#
Only a magic that a 
Fm7/5
name would stain.
B/Eb                       C#6
With the first drop of my blood in their veins
      B6                  A#m7
Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains.
    E/G#               Ebm/F#
The fairest cries, 'We all have loved you, 
Fm7/5
Rael'."
Cm   Ab/C   Cm7      Ab/C  Bb6
Each empty snakelike body floats,
       Ab7+            Eb     Eb/D 
Silent sorrow in empty boats.
Cm Ab/C  Cm7      Ab/C      Bb6
A sickly sourness fills the room,
           Ab7+                Eb    F
The bitter harvest of a dying bloom.
Gm          Dm       F7+    C7+      D
Looking for motion I know I will not find,
Gm           Dm        F7+     C7+      F7+       C7+/9   D
I stroke the curls now turning pale, in which I'd lain entwined.
 Gm Dm           Am/E        Em           Bm      F#m  C#m  G#m 
"Oh Lamia, your flesh that remains I will take as my food."
A            E     A           E          F#m          C#m
It is the scent of garlic that lingers on my chocolate fingers.
F#m  C#/F  Eb4/Bb  Bb  Ebm/Bb  Bb7  Bb

[Piano Solo]
Eb7  C#7+/F  Eb7  C#7+/F  Eb7  Fm/Bb  C#m/F#

[Outro]
B/Eb      C#6
Looking behind me,
    B6              A#m7
the water turns icy blue, 
    E/G#                  Ebm/F#          Fm7/5
The lights are dimmed and once again the stage is set for you.
B/Eb  C#6  B6  A#m7  E/G#  Ebm/F#  Fm7/5
