lyrics

We witches have our broomsticks
Allies call them paper planes
For each has only canvas, wood
And an engine to their names

On moonless nights we fly
On silent winds, we glide
Our targets hear nothing but the wind
When suddenly it’s raining fire

When we are told we can’t be soldiers
We take to the sky
We will fly until our enemies smolder

Night witches
Nachthexen
From us
There’s no protection all is fair
And this is war

You never hear the one that gets you
A silent night until the fire is next to you
Leave naught but ashes in our wake
Our enemies know their mistake

Though we are told we can’t be soldiers
We take to the sky
We devastate all in a flash

Night witches
Nachthexen
From us
There’s no protection all is fair
And this is war

You cannot see us, you cannot hear us
You cannot stop us, but you know to fear us
Never send a soldier to do a witch’s work!

Our work is done, our engines roar
Back into the skies we soar
Our spell is cast, our curse is set
Our prey all pray we’d never met

Though we are told we can’t be soldiers
We take to the sky
We devastate all in a flash

Night witches
Nachthexen
From us
There’s no protection all is fair
And this is war

Cheshire Moon Ames, Iowa

Cheshire Moon is a fanciful melding of trickster bird Lizzie Crowe and mad hatter Eric Coleman.

These two-time Pegasus Award recipients are part of the growing music genre known as MythPunk, bringing old gods and folk tales into modern day, and bringing faerie tale princesses into the light of dark magic.

They weave journeys of song and story, bringing their listeners along for the ride.
