    DC#6
    The scent grows richer, 
    B6Bbm7
    he knows he must be here, 
    GEbmF#
    He finds a long passageway lit by 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    chandelier.
    DC#6
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change 
    B6Bbm7
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange. 
    GEbmF#
    A magnificent chamber meets his 
    Fm7E7
    eye.

    DC#6
    Inside, a long rose-water pool 
    B6Bbm7
    is shrouded by fine mist. 
    GEbmF#
    Stepping in the moist silence, with a 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    warm breeze he's gently kissed.
    DC#6
    Thinking he is quite alone, 
    B6Bbm7
    He enters the room, as if it were his own 
    GEbmF#
    But ripples on the sweet pink water 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    Reveal some company unthought of -
    CmAbCCm7AbCBb6
    Rael stands astonished doubting his sight, 
    Ab7EbEbD
    Struck by beauty, gripped in fright; 
    CmAbCCm7AbCBb6
    Three ver-milion snakes of female face 
    Ab7EbF
    The smallest motion, filled with grace. 
    GmDmF7C7D
    Muted melodies fill the echoing hall, 
    GmDmF7C7F7C7D
    +/9 
    But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call:
    GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mAbm
    "Rael welcome, we are the Lamia of the pool. 
    AEAEF#mC#m
    We have been waiting for our waters to bring you cool." 
    F#mC#FEb4BbBbEbmBbBb7Bb
     
    Eb7C#7FEb7C#7FEb7FmBbC#mF#
     
    DC#6
    Putting fear beside him, 
    B6Bbm7
    he trusts in beauty blind 
    GEbmF#
    He slips into the nectar, leaving his 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    shredded clothes behind.
    DC#6
    "With their tongues, they test, taste and judge 
    B6Bbm7
    all that is mine. 
    GEbmF#
    They move in a series of caresses 
    Fm7E7
    That glide up and down my spine. 
    AbmEbEAbm7F#EDBsus4EDE7

    DC#6
    As they nibble the fruit of my flesh, 
    B6Bbm7
    I feel no pain, 
    GEbmF#
    Only a magic that a 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    name would stain.
    DC#6
    With the first drop of my blood in their veins 
    B6Bbm7
    Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains. 
    GEbmF#
    The fairest cries, 'We all have loved you, 
    Fm7
    /5- 
    Rael'."
    CmAbCCm7AbCBb6
    Each empty snakelike body floats, 
    Ab7EbEbD
    Silent sorrow in empty boats. 
    CmAbCCm7AbCBb6
    A sickly sourness fills the room, 
    Ab7EbF
    The bitter harvest of a dying bloom. 
    GmDmF7C7D
    Looking for motion I know I will not find, 
    GmDmF7C7F7C7D
    +/9 
    I stroke the curls now turning pale, in which I'd lain entwined.
    GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mAbm
    "Oh Lamia, your flesh that remains I will take as my food." 
    AEAEF#mC#m
    It is the scent of garlic that lingers on my chocolate fingers. 
    F#mC#FEb4BbBbEbmBbBb7Bb

    DC#6
    Looking behind me, 
    B6Bbm7
    the water turns icy blue, 
    E/G#EbmF#Fm7
    / /5- 
    The lights are dimmed and once again the stage is set for you.
