lyrics

Down on the shores in the laughter of Selkies
Find the hidden pieces of the sea kept well by sweet kelpies
It may cost you the voice you had at thirteen
If may cost you the fire of the next ten words you breathe
The price is always high enough to pay without a thought
To touch and see the things you know all man should not

Sisters of the tides are we
Bound by sand and salt and sea
Selkie, mermaid, siren daughters
Keepers of the holy waters

To be had in the bigger cracks
Of the boggy, broken world
All wrapped in the torn seal coat
Of a savage Selkie girl

There’s a place for those who always know the watery way
And never let the rocky road keep them from their play
Find Kelpie girls and sweet black pearls black sands from Pelee’s heart
Treasures of sunken pirates, to shells that tell stories for a start
Hold the shell up to your ear and hear a tale of woe
Hear the roar of a Kraken’s hurricane or the song of a sirens glow

Sisters of the tides are we
Bound by sand and salt and sea
Selkie, mermaid, siren daughters
Keepers of the holy waters

To be had in the bigger cracks
Of the boggy, broken world
All wrapped in the tattered vest
Of a sassy kraken girl

But not all the maids you’ll find are here to show their wares
Some are here for other purpose some fair, and some nefarious
So careful now to let your heart be stolen by the sea
Or be held by hands or woven bands of her daughters that need to feed
Of a maiden or a Selkie gone astray she’s not here to make her way
Because like the tide at full moon she’ll never stay

Sisters of the tides are we
Bound by sand and salt and sea
Selkie, mermaid, siren daughters
Keepers of the holy waters

To be had in the bigger cracks
Of the boggy, broken world
All wrapped up in the silken scales
Of a silvery mermaid in pearls
