    B/EbC#6
    The scent grows richer, 
    B6A#m7
    he knows he must be here, 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    He finds a long passageway lit by 
    Fm7/C
    chandelier. 
    B/EbC#6
    Each step he takes, the perfumes change 
    B6A#m7
    From familiar fragrance to flavours strange. 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    A magnificent chamber meets his 
    Fm7Eaug7
    eye. 
    ( G#m/Eb E G#m7/F# E B/Eb B4/E B/Eb E7+ )
    B/EbC#6
    Inside, a long rose-water pool 
    B6A#m7
    is shrouded by fine mist. 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    Stepping in the moist silence, with a 
    Fm7/C
    warm breeze he's gently kissed. 
    B/EbC#6
    Thinking he is quite alone, 
    B6A#m7
    He enters the room, as if it were his own 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    But ripples on the sweet pink water 
    Fm7/C
    Reveal some company unthought of - 
    CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
    Rael stands astonished doubting his sight, 
    Abaug7EbEb/D
    Struck by beauty, gripped in fright; 
    CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
    Three ver-milion snakes of female face 
    Abaug7EbF
    The smallest motion, filled with grace. 
    GmDmFaug7Caug7D
    Muted melodies fill the echoing hall, 
    GmDmFaug7Caug7Faug7Caug7/CD
    But there is no sign of warning in the siren's call: 
    GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mG#m
    "Rael welcome, we are the Lamia of the pool. 
    AEAEF#mC#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#
    B/EbC#6
    Putting fear beside him, 
    B6A#m7
    he trusts in beauty blind 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    He slips into the nectar, leaving his 
    Fm7/C
    shredded clothes behind. 
    B/EbC#6
    "With their tongues, they test, taste and judge 
    B6A#m7
    all that is mine. 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    They move in a series of caresses 
    Fm7Eaug7
    That glide up and down my spine. 
    ( G#m/Eb E G#m7/F# E B/Eb B4/E B/Eb E7+ )
    B/EbC#6
    As they nibble the fruit of my flesh, 
    B6A#m7
    I feel no pain, 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    Only a magic that a 
    Fm7/C
    name would stain. 
    B/EbC#6
    With the first drop of my blood in their veins 
    B6A#m7
    Their faces are convulsed in mortal pains. 
    E/G#Ebm/F#
    The fairest cries, 'We all have loved you, 
    Fm7/C
    Rael'." 
    CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
    Each empty snakelike body floats, 
    Abaug7EbEb/D
    Silent sorrow in empty boats. 
    CmAb/CCm7Ab/CBb6
    A sickly sourness fills the room, 
    Abaug7EbF
    The bitter harvest of a dying bloom. 
    GmDmFaug7Caug7D
    Looking for motion I know I will not find, 
    GmDmFaug7Caug7Faug7Caug7/CD
    I stroke the curls now turning pale, in which I'd lain entwined. 
    GmDmAm/EEmBmF#mC#mG#m
    "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#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# )
    B/EbC#6
    Looking behind me, 
    B6A#m7
    the water turns icy blue, 
    E/G#Ebm/F#Fm7/C
    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- ) fade
