Black Moon 06:48
They say her heart is of the dark With a mouth of a lioness and devious tongue An astral habit gone awry As she guards pylons lit with flame Some call her the whore of the universe Swallowing man whole But it is she who reigns in freedom Hearing the dead and sending them home Treacherous one Lady of the Flame Transformation a collective unconscious As souls pass after death to lunar rebirth She remains at her gate shadows at her feet

Pesta 01:59
It's 1349 and in Askøy Norway on a boat the plague arrives one man sees her leave carrying a rake and a broom before the boat is set alight and pushed back into the sea Pesta Pesta will she take your life or spare it for now Pesta Pesta will she take your life or spare it for now Word it spreads like wildfire folk lock their windows and doors but Pesta goes from farm to farm it's impossible to keep her away If she carries her rake there's chance of escape if she carries her broom you're doomed You'll be swept you'll be swept you'll be swept away you'll be swept away by her broom Pesta Pesta will she take your life or spare it for now Pesta Pesta will she take your life or spare it for now

There's a witch in the forest there's a witch in the forest there's a witch there's a witch there's a witch The witch in the northern forest flies with no broom beneath her You know you're entering her territory when the air turns bitter in your mouth and you find a circle of animals rotting which all look as though they're smiling There's a witch in the forest There's a witch in the forest There's a witch there's a witch there's a witch There's a witch in the forest There's a witch in the forest There's a witch there's a witch there's a witch There's little time before she arrives the one whose ancestors laughed at the stake while flames licked away their flesh The witch gathers up the small children in her arms like wild flowers There's a witch in the forest There's a witch in the forest There's a witch there's a witch there's a witch There's a witch in the forest There's a witch in the forest There's a witch there's a witch there's a witch Never a trace is discovered of these lost little ones except soft faraway crying heard from between the trees

Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house He says that he knows you he knows you he knows you he says that he knows you he knows you Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house He says that he met you one cold winter when the moon was full and the snow was bright He says that he met you one cold winter when the moon was full and the snow was bright Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house He says you're to go you're to go with with him now he says you're to go with him now Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house The wolf he's growling he's snarling at me I fear I fear I'm to die The wolf he's growling he's snarling at me I fear I fear I'm to die Granddaughter come down from your bedroom there's a wolf in the house

about

A small pocketbook of folk horror and silver tongue sonnets. A dark fairy tale spiriting those away to enchanting landscapes of yore. Brimming with forest speak and incantations, wrapped up by the dead tree refuge.

about

Cave Mouth Michigan

Cave Mouth is a musical project one as haunting as it is beautiful, minimalist as it is epic. Where literary musings meet a visceral soundscape invoking mythic visions and heartfelt fables.

Cave Mouth is the brain child of Meghan Wood (Crown of Asteria) and writer Katie Metcalfe.
