Forest (A Ritual)

Forest (A Ritual) from Moth Rah on Vimeo.

 

Forest (A Ritual) is a video from Moth Rah, in the Hermetic Library video pool.

“A ritual, a music video, a conjuring, a lo-fi film shot one night in my living room using a smartphone balanced in an ornamental letter holder. No demons or spirits were banished, summoned or otherwise disturbed during the making of this video.
Or were they?! The tarot cards used are from the Medieval Scapini tarot.”

Rise

 

“Rise” by Moth Rah from Girl/Phoenix EP

Broken heart, broken head, broken ice,
Broken like a Cinderella slipper,
Dashed like a fallen shooting star,
Open up your mouth like a secret,
Out pour broken diamonds splinter in your heart.
Dashed a thousand hopes, a thousand loves, a thousand dreams.
Fragile is the glass that holds your image.
Rise, arise, rise, arise.
Gather up the splinters to re-create your eyes.
Rise.
Not every card of death only shows the end.
Not every hurtful laugh is the honesty of friends.
Rise.
Girl. Phoenix, phoenix. Girl. Phoenix, phoenix.
Let the fire take hold. Let the fire take hold.
Throw the bones. Throw the bones.
Ash to gold. Ash to gold.
Rise. Arise.
You were running, running scared.
You were running, running scared.
So you beat out your heart,
So you beat out your heart.
Rise, arise.
Rise, arise.
Rise.

Bambino

 

“Bambino” by Moth Rah from Girl/Phoenix EP

White haired lady waits in the garden,
Drawing aside the curtain,
She is smiling for me,
Smiling for me and my lover.
Chestnuts grow in the garden,
The caterpillar climbs to the highest leaf:
Papillon, papillon,
Papillon, papillon.
I hold a little bird caught in my hands,
Little heart beats so fast,
Away you want to fly,
To stand with your family on the wire,
But you are not ready yet my little bird.
Little bird, little bird,
Little bird, little bird.
Lovely lady walks in her garden,
Rocking her babe in her arms,
Her face turned toward the sun,
She is smiling for me,
Smiling for me and my lover.
Sunflowers grow in the garden,
The flowers reach up toward the light.
Bambino, bambino,
Bambino, bambino.
I hold your spirit little flower, inside of me.
I hold a promise to you.
You are a promise to me.

Broken heart, broken head, broken ice,
Broken like a Cinderella slipper,
Dashed like a fallen shooting star,
Open up your mouth like a secret,
Out pour broken diamonds splinter in your heart.

Dashed a thousand hopes, a thousand loves, a thousand dreams.
Fragile is the glass that holds your image.

Rise, arise, rise, arise.
Gather up the splinters to re-create your eyes.
Rise.

Not every card of death only shows the end.
Not every hurtful laugh is the honesty of friends.
Rise.

Girl. Phoenix, phoenix. Girl. Phoenix, phoenix.

Let the fire take hold. Let the fire take hold.
Throw the bones. Throw the bones.
Ash to gold. Ash to gold.

Rise. Arise.

You were running, running scared.
You were running, running scared.
So you beat out your heart,
So you beat out your heart.

Rise, arise.
Rise, arise.
Rise.
