Story behind the song
Inspired by Marion Zimmer Bradley's 1982 novel THE MISTS OF AVALON which examines the legend of Camelot from the point-of-view female druidic characters
Lyrics
1 Through the mists of Avalon We see where those in love have gone. Druids with romantic charms Must seek the mists of Avalon Give Galahad your bed, King Arthur; Barrenness will end your reign. �Neath the sheets is only part of Pastures fed with fertile grain. CHORUS: Let them lie, let them beg, Let them find return to clay. Send them Sight, send them plague, Send them sentimental grave. Spell me Merlyn, spell me Morgaine, Christians scorn your ancient way. Quest and torture bless this fortress, Jester, sorcerer, Passion Play. 2 Speak not incest to poor Arthur Keep your hateful litany. Such a penance helps empower Christians through all Brittany. Guinevere, you lie in bed A-cleaving to your Lancelot. Get thee to a nunnery, You�ve lost your precious Camelot CHORUS 3 Merlyn�s wisdom lives forever Though he hears not what you say Plants plucked from the land of Faerie Please the Lady of the Lake Through the mists of Avalon We see where those in love have gone. Druids with romantic charms Must seek the mists of Avalon. Let them lie, let them beg, Let them find return to clay. Send them Sight, send them plague, Send them sentimental grave.
