Lyrics:


Come with me to the fire festival
Let us burn each other blind
Let us dance, let us dance away
Dance 'til the end of time

Come with me to the islands of the dead
To the soul house 
To the fire house
To smoke and ash of laughter in your head. 
Sweet laughter
Hereafter, everafter    
In the islands of the dead

Pack up all your mortal memories
Cloak your soul in sleep
The moon is in the window 
And the wind is in the trees
These things are yours to keep

Oh come with me to the islands of the dead
Let us sail sail
Sail sail away
To smoke and ash of laughter in your head. 
Sweet laughter 
Hereafter, everafter    
In the islands of the dead
