Rumors of the Big Wave is a New Age band that has a song called The Burning Times on their Burning Times album. You can find it at Napster sometimes and can order it through most metaphysical stores. The song goes as follows:
In the cool of the evening They used to gather 'Neith the stars in the meadow Circling an old Oak tree. At the times appointed By the seasons of the Earth And the phases of the Moon. In the Center Stood a woman Equal with the others And respected for her worth One of the many we call the 'Witches' The healers and the teachers Of the wisdom of the Earth And the people grew Through the knowledge she gave them Herbs to heal their bodies, spells to make their spirits whole. Can't you hear them chanting Healing incantations? Calling forth the Wise Ones Celebrating in dance and song!
Chorus: Isis, Astarte, Diana, Hecatate, Demeter, Kali, Inana (Repeat 3 times)
There were those who came to power Through domination And they bonded in the worship Of a dead man on a cross. They sought control Of the common people By demanding allegiance To the Church of Rome! And the Pope declared an Inquisition It was war against the women Whose power they feared! And in this Holocaust Of the common people Nine million European women died! And a tale is told of those Who by the hundreds Holding together chose a death in the sea While chanting the praises of the Mother Goddess! A refusal of betrayal Women were dying to be free!
Chorus repeated 4 times
And the Earth is a Witch! And the men still burn her! Stripping her down with mining And the poisons of the war! Still to us the Earth is a teacher. A healer, a mother A weaver of the web of life That keeps us all alive! She gives us the vision To see through the Chaos! She gives us our courage It is our will to survive!
