The Lyrics

Hear Like the Craft Free! This one took so long to complete that I quite literally had to span it over several days. . .the most effort I've ever put into a parody, and like always I recorded the fun.

Watchtowers of the North
Guardian of Mother Earth
I Feel you in my veins
and I invoke thee

When we call Manon
I feel him in my soul
We have formed a ring
We're really not so mean
As I conjour for hours
I can handle your power
Just say you're near
I wish you'd take me there

You hear my voice
You answer without warning
We will rejoice
Now hear my voice
Grant them nightmares
I drink your blood
Manon I drink from my hood
Light as feathers, stiff as a board
Now we're floating

Watchtowers of the West
I call to thee I'm spent
This girl she is so mean
Please shave her head off clean
Guardian of water
your intuitive power
I drink your blood
You know I'm not too scared

We aren't so vile
The world is always balanced
Not in control
We call Manon
Now We're chanting (Chorus Also)
Power of dreams
Except we aren't just dreaming
It lies in me
Comes back times three
Let the corners sing

Watchtowers of the East (Chorus Also)
Guarding the air I breathe
and all of invention
It's great I feel so free
I do not dream of power
Just to be desired
Oh help my skin peel clean
He's gonna take me there
Watchtowers of the South
Guard of feeling and fire
I'm calling oh please
I want to invoke thee
In the morning hours
I shall walk on water
Just come in Manon
I know you're everywhere

Watchtowers of the North (Oh Ah Chorus)
They all just stand two toned
The spells they have misused (ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhahhhh)
and they're in my home

Lights up the air (Oh Ah Chorus)
Power is everywhere
Not like it's news to me
They want me dead asleep
They Made me scream (ahhhhhhhhh)
It is not what it seems
He took me there
No choice, Manon Please take me there

(Manon I swear I need your share)
(They're coming to kill Me)
(Power of three, Please make them see)
(It's their turn to be scared)
(I Know you're here, You're Everywhere)
(Please come and heal me)
(She's Empowered, She's lost her mind)
(It's time for her to see)

Wind through my hair (oh ah chorus)
Manon said bind you here
No Harm you'll bring to me
Your rule is history
Just like you need (ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh)
Your powers stripped from thee
It's like I said
No Choice My Voice will now bind thee

(It's in the air, it's everywhere)
(Manon Can help save me)
(From water deep to Mountains steep)
(He's even in your dreams)
(But please beware, don't wish despair)
(Do as you'd do to thee)
(Cause if you don't, you will receive)
(What is sent out times three)
This one as always is on my page. . .See all my songs! They are all free to listen or download. . .I am also on several other artists' pages as a featured vocalist.

This is your best parody yet, Below Average Dave. By the way, my theory is that when Madonna did the original song in 1989 she was really praising the "Craft" and not Christianity!

(ABC3) This Manon sprung! (French cinema humor, folks). Pretty bizarre tune for you, BAD. Verrrrrry interesting.

Where are my Satanic robes? I need to sing this! Weird and intense sorcery there. 555!

Nice recording. Too bad you couldn't get Marianne Faithful and Anita Pallenburg for backing vocals... ;-)
Agrimorfee - March 16, 2007 - Report this comment

Thank you everybody. . .this was one of my biggest efforts so far too. . .I haven't released anything since this, and it's been half a month--so I will try to record something tonight. Oh and Matthias--I know right?

Dave, you should see my "All My Hexes Wiped Out Texas". In that one I poked some good-natured fun at the craft. Good work, as usual.---MM

(AGES 5) When I saw the title, I think WoW (which is probably what you meant). When i read it (and listen to it) I think AWESOME!!!
Cat - March 27, 2007 - Report this comment
(Ages) Yeah...I admit this wasn't really my favorite work of yours, Dave. Maybe I just don't "get" the subject matter, but it seemed erratic. Pacing was good, though.

Love it! 5s

I love the movie and maybe this should be apart of it's soundtrack :) .

(Dec2) I still admire your "craft". What's Fairuza Balk been up to lately, I wonder? ;)

(Dec 2.2) Haven't seen The Craft for years...what un ususual choice of film to parody! Well written rather than LOL funny...but a nice job nonetheless. 555

(dec2.2) I still can't believe the OS is that long - read well to the OS, but I'm not familiar with the movie you're spoofing, so I missed the gags, I'm pretty sure - my loss I'm sure

(Decathlon 2.0) was about a movie now? Oh well, it's still stayin' on my playlist!

DEC2- Ah, you put a spell on me, Dave. Not a big fan of the Craft, but as I recall, the ladies in that film were pretty cute. Very well done.

Decathlon...I only saw the movie once and honestly don't remember it well at all...but this was perfectly paced and to one of my favorite Madonna songs, no less. =)
