Stratification Lyrics

Submitted by level ― (2013-08-17)
1. Stratification (3:54)
2. Sleigh Ride (7:15)
Wind chill beckons Winter's secret tale Of the night summer dead. Winter beings disturbed The golden trestles Of winter's virgin bride. Icy winds rang The sleigh bells On the white sleigh ride. The nine maids, On their white ride, Trapped winter's bride. Bare ankles were fettered And legs were spread wide So that winter could come inside. Icy winds rang The sleigh bells On the white sleigh ride. Snow queen Ride free again On your white sleigh ride. The story is always the same: Winter's secret tale Of the night summer died. Icy winds rang The sleigh bells On the white sleigh ride.
3. White Winter Wanderer (5:32)
White winter wanderer.
White winter.
White winter.
White winter wanderer.

White winter;
The cold night is my priest
And the frigid mist
Ia my sacred law.

Snow covered land;
The white coulee is my refuge
And the lonely icicle
Is my church steeple.

Strange auld elm:
The tree is my tower
And the screech owl's nest
Is my sanctuary.

Wind sacred kingdom;
The frozen prairie is my fortress
And the driven snow
Is my legion.

Unforgiving bitter winter;
The icy wind is my will
And the frostbitten result
Is my fiery onslaught.
4. Frost Crystal Symmetry (5:13)
The fields are flickering
Under the frozen night.
The colours are black, grey, and white.
Moonlight is beaming.
The ground is gleaming.

Across the prairie I roam
To find the magical shimmer tree
And attain wintry dignity;
There is one tree all alone
Where the good folk call home.

It stands in the meadow,
The good folk's abode,
Beyond the ninth road,
Where the good folk stow,
There is where I shall go.

Snow covers the coulee,
In this winter realm
Alone stands the auld elm;
Magical shimmer tree
In crystal symmetry.
5. Nine Paths (7:05)
Nine paths
Lead to nine creeks
Then beyond the ninth stream
Dwells screech owl's dream,
Namely, magical shimmer tree;
Skeleton of the northern prairie,
Cold wind speaks.

Nine creeks
With crystal ceilings,
Their surfaces are static
But beneath the waters are frantic,
Just like screech owl's call;
Shrill sound of white Heimdall,
The nine maids are winter beings.

Night proceedings
Ignite nine lamps,
Strange fire provides illumination;
Fiery pillars of stratification,
Light the solitary journey's
Through the ice winds and flurries,
To the nine creeks.
6. Nine Creeks (6:11)
The nine creeks
Are watched by
A fair water spirit,
And some old hags have said
That in winter some can hear it;
Her strange voice.

It has been written:
"That all water spirits
And elves grew taller
When night was falling,"
Winter makes her holler,
In winter night falls fastest.

The nine creeks
Are covered with
Crystal from the water faerie,
Her shadow casts storms,
Skeleton of the northern prairie;
Fair water spirit.
7. Wintertime (6:49)
8. The Frozen Field (2:21)
Pensive lonely prairie,
Frozen place of awakening,
Winter's icy whisper
Is a screeching cry.

Harsh authoritarian domain,
Realm of ice mist dominatrix,
Cold winds reap her will
'Till spring is nigh.

Snow covered plain,
White field of contemplation,
In summer she shall turn golden
With rape seed or rye.
9. Auld Tree (4:50)
Strange auld elm
Your branches
Are like hag's
Boney fingers.

Your branches
Frozen through,
Are cold and harsh
Like hag's dry hands.

Frozen through,
Your branches
Stretch upward;
Morbidly they strive.

Winter nights
Make your branches gleam;
Your branches shimmer
In crystal symmetry.

Strange auld elm
Your branches
Frozen through
Winter nights.
