Long ago in the realms of the sky
There was a raven with opal eyes
She held dark magic in her heart
For this reason there were men who
Sought to capture her and distill
All the secrets she held within 
So they set a trap in the trees
But she was killed when it snared her
When they dissected her broken wings 
And cut out her heart and opal eyes
Her severed beak began to sing
And all the men stood in shocked surprise
In fear they put all her parts into a jar 
And buried them deep in the earth
It was to no purpose 
for her song was still in the air 
Soon the men themselves became ill
And madness tortured them endlessly
What they had released into the world
Were notes of wrath and chords of disease 
The ignorance of man and 
his desire to lord over all living things
will reap only suffering and death 
to the end of his days
