Story

I have loved the story of Scheherazade for as long as I can remember.  The desire for the fame and fortune of a crown has been the impetus for many evil deeds.  Such power wields its own price, including a very real and insular loneliness that manifests from being personally invisible behind the visibility of the position.

Scheherazade (Scorpion Moon) - Scorpion Moon

Lyrics

Spin me a tale for your life
And make me believe again
Take me away from this farce
Of monstrous and kingly vice

How I want you to love me
To love me unbound
How I want you to need me
To need me unfound
Beneath your fabled sun
And your scorpion moon
I need you to want me
Beyond this savage world of sand

I saw through your cunning plan
A rapture of dancing words
Your honey voice, nomad eyes
The dervish wind to my fire

How I want you to love me
To love me unbound
How I want you to need me
To need me unfound
Beneath your fabled sun
And your scorpion moon
I need you to want me
Beyond this savage world of sand

Oh thousand nights forgive this murderous pride
That morning betrays
Oh maybe my life will be redeemed to know
To know

To know that you love me
You love me unbound
To know that you need me
You need me unfound
How I want you to love me
To love me unbound
How I want you to need me
To need me unfound
Beneath your fabled sun
And your scorpion moon
I need you to want me
As much as I want you.
