Hello Magic My Old Friend

(Tune: The Sounds of Silence
Words by Ottercat)

Hello magic my old friend
I've come to practice you again
Because the seasons softly creeping
It's yuletide that I'm now keeping
And the seasons follow in their wondrous way
All remains
Within the wheel of the year

Out of circle I walk alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone
Met the halo of the full moon
Hadn't thought that it did come so soon
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of a falling star
Come from afar
To touch the wheel of the year

And in my third eye then I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing spells that voices never shared
No one dared
Invoke the pow'r of magic

"Fools" said I "you do not know
Mundanes like a cancer grow
Hear my words that I might teach you
Take my arms that I might reach you"
But my words like silent teardrops fell
And echoed in the wheel of the year

And the people bowed and prayed
To the patriarch they made
Nature called out her warning
In the weather she was forming
And the people polluted the rivers
the valleys even air they breath
Would no one believe
What's whispered by the wheel of the year
