    BLACK MOUNTAIN

    Black Mountain is a soulful place
    where something’s hidden behind each face.
    So whatever greeting you may receive
    Don’t think “to see is to believe……..”

    Black is white and day is night
    and everything is turned around.
    Good is bad, and you’ve been had
    if you think you’re safe and sound.

    The Lurid Lullaby

    To Black Mountain dare you go
    Can you tell who’s friend or foe?

    What once was such a land of dreams
    now’s full of fear, nothing’s as it seems

    Childhood lost, charmed by this land
    beckoned closer by a dangerous hand

    The pleasure of the fairy tale
    now makes the listener turn deathly pale

    The comfort of the nursery rhyme
    turned bitter sweet and lost in time

    The lullaby, once full of calm,
    now threatens to do so much harm

    so, as you listen to a song so sweet,
    prepare for who you’re about to meet

    The shadows of centuries afore
    will captivate you for evermore.
