Being of creativity, 
show yourself now to me, 
your light that shines upon our face, 
let our vision now embrace

Being of creativity
We call ourselves now to thee
Your light now darkened in a ring
Shall feel the power of three we bring

Being of creativity
Hide yourself now from me
Your light that shines upon our face
From our vision, now erase

waste the warlocks evil zest

Background info:



As Phoebe struggles to help Cole adjust to his new life, he becomes more and more obsessed with helping her and her sisters. Meanwhile, Devlin (Anthony Starke) a warlock attempts to gather a faction to take over the underworld. His plan, to collect muses and inspire evil, leads the girls to team up with their own muse. As the boys work on a plan of their own, the girls learn the true meaning of inspiration overload.

Trivia: Piper: What is this, Dr. Seuss? (Responding to Phoebe's excessive rhyming)
Dr. Seuss is a children's writer who wrote his stories in rhyme.

Phoebe: Um, honestly, Bev, I think the forties is your era. I mean, you already have this, kind of Veronica Lake thing goin' on.
Veronica Lake was an actress especially remembered for the films and performances from 1941-1946.

Phoebe: Bev, I'm telling you, forties night is perfect. I mean, think about it, the zoot suits, the saddle shoes, the patriotism. What more could you ask for?
A zoot suit is a man's suit with wide-legged, tight-cuffed, or "pegged," trousers; a long coat with wide lapels, and wide, padded shoulders.
Zoot suits first gained popularity in Harlem jazz culture in the late 1930s. The word "zoot" probably comes from the French word zut (meaning "damn!"). They were extremely popular with African-American youth and also with young Latinos, most particularly in the Los Angeles Chicano community. In March of 1942, the War Production Board banned zoot suit production, because it deemed the style wasteful of valuable suiting material during wartime. But the fashion persisted, despite restrictions placed on the amount of fabric in the production of garments.
The young men who wore these suits were accompanied by girls dressed all in black. They were called the black widows.

When Cole dances with Phoebe at P3 in the last scene his uniform shows the rank of Air Force Colonel 1. Grade.
