Track Name: The Fool (Our Ending)
When we started playing out our simple fancies, I couldn’t read the cards that prophesied your ending. But you kept turning them, and there I thought you cruel. But you would carry on until I played the fool.

I was the fool. I was the fool. I was the one who fell in love you - a spell I can’t remove, you won’t undo.

When the papers read that you had come up missing, I was the first one that they called for all your listings. I shed a tear and wept; they didn’t have clue. I packed my bags and left no longer your fool.

I was the fool. I was the fool. I was the one who fell in love you - a spell I can’t remove, you won’t undo.

On my way to trains and airplanes catching every cab that makes its way to somewhere beautiful - somewhere I won’t hear you calling out for me to spare you now, one more chance, one more spell. Well, give me your love or give me your life. One way or another you’ll be mine

I was the fool. I was the fool. I was the one who fell in love you - a spell I can’t remove, you won’t undo.
Track Name: The Magician (A False Alarm)
I hear a false alarm. From where it’s coming, I don’t know. I am looking beyond my scope, and I don’t know where to go. Take me to the mandarin trees in a triple moonlit night. Smudge away this past of mine, and tell me what you see.

Magician, can you find me, and tell me where to go? I’ve been waiting for a new life. I’ve been waiting so long. Magician, can you reach me and tell me what to do? I’ve been wanting a change. Can you make me anew?

And I've seen your shadowlands in a smoky thurible. Novo cedat ritui with eyes turned to pearls. Maybe I am expecting too much from you or too much from this life. I could pull up the reins. I could sail through the night.

Magician, can you find me, and tell me where to go? I’ve been waiting for a new life. I’ve been waiting so long. Magician, can you reach me and tell me what to do? I’ve been wanting a change. Can you make me anew?

Magician, can you find me, and tell me where to go? I’ve been waiting for a new life. I’ve been waiting so long. Magician, can you reach me and tell me what to do? I’ve been wanting a change. Can you make me anew?

Shantih shantih shantih
Track Name: The High Priestess (Someone's Listening In)
I’m waking from another night that I can barely recall. (Not all’s forgotten.)
There’s something slipping out the back of my mind, then it’s gone. (Not all’s departed.)

Then it’s you that I can count on then. Then it’s you that I remember when. Then it’s you that I remember when I am lost. (But all’s not lost. But all’s not lost.)

What do you think is gained from an empty grave? I’m in a strange way. There’s someone listening in. Could I be saved? (Could I be saved?)
I could call out your name, but someone’s listening in. But someone’s listening in. But someone’s listening in.

I’m waking from another night that I can barely recall. (Recall.)
There’s something slipping out the back of my mind, then it’s gone. (It's gone.)

Then it’s you that I can count on then. Then it’s you that I remember when. Then it’s you that I remember when I am lost.

What do you think is gained from an empty grave? I’m in a strange way. There’s someone listening in. Could I be saved? (Could I be saved?)
I could call out your name, but someone’s listening in. But someone’s listening in. But someone’s listening in.
Track Name: The Empress (Under Your Spell)
Every night now and every night now, you could be the one, and I would come undone. Maybe tonight I will be someone under your spell.

I’ve been dreaming every night just to let you in (right through the door). I wanted nothing more. (If you could be the one, I would come undone.) Well maybe tonight I will be someone under your spell.

I can hear you walking up, waiting at the door, (calling out my name). Are you gonna be the same? (Or could you be the one, and I would come undone?) Maybe tonight I will be someone under your spell.

[...]

I can hear a false alarm ringing out tonight (right through the door). Is it from the mandarin trees? (Or could you be the one, and I would come undone?) Well maybe tonight I will be someone under your spell.

I can see your silhouette as you’re slipping in (through the shadowlands). Could you ever lend a hand? (And could you be the one, and I would come undone?) Well maybe tonight I will be someone. Well maybe tonight I will be someone. Well maybe tonight I will be someone under your spell.
Track Name: The Emperor (I See The Moon Rise Up)
I hear my number baby; it’s up and in the air. I say the time is right, and they blindfold the messenger.

And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize. (I see the moon rise up.) And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. (And call out the emperor.)

I hear the last rites baby - a cigarette and light. I say the time is right, and the guns go off.

And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize
(I see the moon rise up.) And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. (And call out the emperor.)

And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize
(I see the moon rise up.) And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. (And call out the emperor.)

And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize. And he will terrorize
(I see the moon rise up.) And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. And we will terrorize. (And call out the emperor.)
Track Name: The Hierophant (In A New Light)
I once called you a blessing. I once called you a bridge to something more. But in a new light, you're a cause for warning. But in a new light, you’re a false alarm.

Could your let your guard down with a straight face? Could your lay your arms down, down way down low? Could you wake up everyday in a strange way? (Thurible, thurible, thurible, thurible.)

And I feel so... And I feel so...

I once knew you as Peter. Vicarius filius dei. But in a new light, you’re a cause for mourning. But in a new light, you can’t be saved.

Could your let your guard down with a straight face? Could your lay your arms down, down way down low? Could you wake up everyday in a strange way? (Thurible, thurible, thurible, thurible.)

And I feel so... And I feel so...
Track Name: The Lovers (Settle Your Heart)
Now I know that your mind is on another I don’t know, that your eyes are set and tears have wept alone for someone who’s gone. Now I know that I’m nothing more, I’m nothing more to you than a hand to lend, a friend who can’t undo what you’re going through, but just remember love is not forever, and it’s not through with you, so come and dance here, too. No, love is not forever, but it’s here now for you. What you gonna do?

Now I know that those happy days just seem so far away, and there’s nothing I, there’s nothing I could say to make them stay. Now you know that you’re not the only one to ever go, go and throw your heart to lovers so cold. I’ve been down that road, and let me tell yah love is not forever, and it’s not through with you, so come and dance here, too. No, love is not forever, but it’s here now for you. What you gonna do

What you gonna do?

Love is not forever, and it’s not through with you, so come and dance here, too. No, love is not forever, but it’s here now for you. What you gonna do?

And the cards will await us, and the incense will shift. With the turn of each card, a turn of events. What direction are we going? What great fall will arise? Settle your heart, and trust the divine.
