    The new song HECATE from folkalist Lewis Barfoot comes as a single cd in a beautiful vinyl style cd with artwork from Tamsin Haggis.

    Hecate is a mythological goddess of the witchcraft, magic and necromancy. A triple headed goddess who walks between the worlds of the living and dead. She serves women in the journey to the depths of their psyche and welcomes the release of anything that no longer serves. Her animals are the Owl, the Deer, snakes, dogs and her time is Samhain.

Hecate 05:12
Come with me, sail me sea Dash your doubts upon my shores Smash your decks, break your oars Find your soul fire Fulfil your dreams, your heart’s desire Your heart’s desire I took a hold of her hand She took a hold over me Stepping onto her boat I could barely breathe Looking me in the eye with a wildly smile She passed inside of me I was sailing alone on her sea And Hecate said she’d show me the sea of the dead And Hecate said mmmm she’d show me the sea of the dead Your heart’s desire This so called sea was a reflection of me Shadowy soul dying to breathe I took out a knife to cut myself clean And tore it right through from neck to knee Casting aside what I used to be And Hecate said she’d show me the sea of the dead And Hecate said mmmm she’d show me the sea of the dead
