about

A retelling of an ancient Yawuru story about a beautiful succubus demon who dwells in the mangroves on the Dampier Peninsula in Northwest Australia, tempting young men to her devouring shores...

lyrics

Mangroves waiting for the tide
coming in, coming in,
In the mist the Red Dress hides
waiting, waiting
Bringing love and darkness both,
calls it in, calls it in,
Waiting for her night’s betrothed
Rolls him in, rolls him in

And the Red Dress takes the night
Fills it with her perfumed tide,
Tender love songs of the dead
Bringing love sick men
to her drowning bed

He smells her sweet perfume
floating, floating
Hears her sweet and muddy tune
singing, singing
Sees the scarlet of her dress
drifting, drifting
Tastes her fiery tongue’s caress
drinks it in, drinks it in

She takes him to her breast
rocking sucking
As his earth life lays to rest
sleeping dreaming
And the tide will take them deep
stealing stealing
And his earthly soul will sleep
dreaming dreaming

To her bed of sea grass soft
lying laughing
She holds her dying man aloft
screaming weeping
Where he lies forevermore
crying sighing
Miles from the Mangrove shore
Dreaming, in her cold and tender law

And the Red Dress takes the night
Fills it with her perfumed tide
Poison fingers on his cheek
Drawing blood to make him weep
Icy kisses on his lips
She swings her savage barren hips
Tender love songs of the dead
Bringing love sick men
To her drowning bed.
