High Priestess, come down from your altar of fire, 
I've come here to worship your flesh. 
The veil has been torn by your holy desire, 
My sword awaits but your request. 
     The Angel upon you, the Judgment has come, 
     The dead are reborn and the New Age begun. 
     Across your young body the Hanged Man reclines, 
     He wants you bound, like him, with magical vines. 
 
High Priestess, lie down on the shrine of the earth, 
We must plant the seed in the land. 
I'll pay you in coin of uncountable worth 
To writhe among diamond and gem. 
     Beneath you, the Fool has been leading you on, 
     Telling you alone is how you belong. 
     Above you, the Sun and all happiness rests, 
     It comes to put color back into your breasts. 
 
High Priestess, ascend to the top of The Tower, 
Up from there to the Star we'll arise. 
At the touch of my Wand, yea, the truth shall appear 
Between the wonder and lies. 
     
     (interlude)
 
High Priestess, come bathe in your baptismal sea, 
The River of Life in your veins. 
These symbols of love you can study with me 
When I drink from your chalice again. 
     Behind you, the scepter of Death just escaped, 
     And The Devil, who'd test you by sickness and rape.
     But lay the last card and the future is done: 
     High Priestess and Magus are one.

Am   G                              F 
High Priestess, come down from your altar of fire, 
 
                               G 
I've come here to worship your flesh. 
 
Am  G                          F 
The veil has been torn by your holy desire, 
 
                          G 
My sword is but at your request. 
 
         E                   Am 
     The Angel upon you, the Judgement has come, 
 
         G    Gb  E G            Am  G   F  E 
     The dead are reborn and the New Age be-gun. 
 
      C                         G             Am 
     Across your young body the Hanged Man reclines, 
 
        C     E   Am     G              Am G  F  E Am 
     He wants you bound, like him, with ma-gi-cal  vines.
