Magick Comin'

about

This is a song about purposely stepping into your power. Spelling "magick" with a k at the end is an innovation generally attributed to 20th century occultist Aleister Crowley (a super controversial but fascinating dude to learn about). In recent years it has been somewhat widely adopted by various folks in the pagan and occult community. The premise behind the additional k, or other alternate spellings like "majick" or "magicke", is to differentiate ceremonial magick practices from the illusions of stage magicians.
This kind of an "oldschool rorie kelly" sound with Rorie on guitar and vocals, Kevin Kelly on bass and keys, and Katie Pearlman on drums. The foot stomps at the end were recorded by Rorie and Kevin at the Workshoppe East studio and literally did shake the room, causing Kevin's Mets bobblehead figures to dance along quite effusively.

lyrics

there are times when she knows that this life is not enough
and all the dull platitudes in the world can't make it so
working hard every day for the bills she still can't pay
she RPGs late at night into someone else's life

oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
where you gonna be tonight?
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
get ready for the big surprise

when's it gonna be my turn? when's it gonna turn around?
when am i gonna wake up happy, knowing what i found
when's it gonna turn around? when's it gonna be my turn?
when am i gonna wake up smiling, knowing what i learned

and she lays out the cards to see how the day will be
and she turns with a sigh, it's another one of these
but the wind blows strong now, and she knows it's only time
just a matter of time until she spreads her wings and flies

oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
where you gonna be tonight?
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
get ready for the big surprise

when's it gonna be my turn? when's it gonna turn around?
when am i gonna wake up happy, knowing what i found
when's it gonna turn around? when's it gonna be my turn?
when am i gonna wake up smiling, knowing what i learned

oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'

and she lays her head tonight, and she knows it's still not time
and she dreams with the power of a phoenix in flames
and she thinks she begins to understand what she has inside
it's not a thing to disavow, it's not to fix, it's not to tame

oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
where you gonna be tonight?
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
oh, there's magick comin'
get ready for the rest of your life
