Love, Under a New Moon

The Sagittarius fell into Pisces, 
in the murkiest of all seas, 
finally, stars cross and we see-what-each-sees, 
two hearts as one, together with: 
  
Love, under a new moon  
bleeding, we're immune 
to the pain that will be over soon  
as we cast a new Leamington rune  
to the tune of our love in Clarendon.  
  
Swim we do from the treacherous deep 
for air to breathe, to share and together sleep 
on Jephson earth, on shoulders weep, 
and hope we keep for lovers and: 
  
Love, under a new moon  
bleeding, we're immune 
to the pain that will be over soon  
as we cast a new Leamington rune  
to the tune of our love in Clarendon. 
  
As above so below, can I with you go? 
Always to safety from Samael,  
Heaven is where you dwell 
and around you, all-stars align with: 
  
Love, under a new moon  
bleeding, we're immune 
to the pain that will be over soon  
as we cast a new Leamington rune  
to the tune of our love in Clarendon. 
  
Under a new moon 
love is the law! 
Under a new moon 
love under will! 
  
Love is the only principle 
which makes life tolerable, 
inamorato and inamorata 
in traumata, always able 
to battle on with: 
  
Love, under a new moon  
bleeding, we're immune 
to the pain that will be over soon  
as we cast a new Leamington rune  
to the tune of our love in Clarendon.
