Babylon Whores Hand of Glory Lyrics


For strange are these woods to fare / Stranger the fruit they bear

Oh hang me high / Upon that tree / For all the secrets to find me / As ravens´ claws / As eagles´ bills / As Wotan´s eyes upon the hills / Oh ten I have of fingers fine / For all the evil´s work in the night / Oh baby I will grow for you from a tree

Burning with glory

Given to trolls and ogre broods / Days will drown in twilight´s gloom / Where black dogs howl / Pulling up mandragore / Chained to the ash forever more / Deaf to the world´s grey roar / Digging up treasures vile and foul

Eye for an eye for a rune / Drawing down the waning moon / Howled at by all wolves / Ensnared ´til the day of doom

So hang me high / Upon that tree / For all the secrets to find me / As ravens´ claws / As eagles´ bills / As Wotan´s eyes upon the hills / Oh ten I have of fingers fine / For all the evil´s work in the night / Oh baby I will grow for you from a tree

Burning with glory

All crooks and ghouls who understand / Cherish the work of idle hands / All of the pages turned / All of the treasures yearned / All of the fingers burned

Burning with Glory
