The White Raven


The White Raven
 I stood waiting at the
 Wind-swept bay
 For my ship come sailing by
 The clouds broke open
 I heard a young man's call
 The White Raven
 Sailed across the sky
 I climbed higher and higher
 Through the roaring storm
 On a rope-ladder
 I left my life behind
 "Anchors away
 And cast of the lines"
 We conquer space and time
 As I gaze at the world
 From so high above
 My heart grows heavy and
 My mind fades away
 As our vessel floats to
 Celestial shores
 I yearn for my home
 A calm harbor to stay

 We sail the clouds and
 Seek the storm
 Above the world
 On our endless voyage home

 The White Raven
 Sailed across the sky
 Black thunderheads
 Piled up like hills
 I saw lightning
 Flash across the Sky
 Death in the shape of
 Golden snakes
 "Is today the day we're going to die?"
 I saw people run in panic
 Shouting and screaming
 My darkest fears had
 Finally come true
 But two eyes, full of hope
 Looked at me
 I'm sure they belonged to you
 As I gaze at the storm
 From right in between
 My strength is growing
 And sorrows fade away
 As our vessels floats to celestial shores
 Reminiscence of the past
 My calm harbour to stay

 The White Raven
 Sailed across the sky
 The White Raven
