Dark Avenger Part 2
2003-11-08 - 11:56 p.m.

Raven of the night;

Welcome me to your lair

Protect your precious child

From the dying of the light.

Raven of the night;

Welcome me if you dare

Protect your only love

From the promise of a prayer.

Raven of the night;

Welcome me into your bed

Lavish me with your darkness

That in which you have fed.

Raven of the night;

Strip me down, strip me bare

Protect your innocent virtue

From the promise of a prayer.

Raven of the night;

Yours is a twice-told tale

Do not go gently into the light

Gather your courage, even if you fail.

Raven of the night;

Tell me of your woes

I’ll tuck you in carefully

Keep you safe from your foes.

Raven of the night;

Do not despair

There is still hope

That someone, somewhere, cares.
