Crow Queen

Queen of the crows
Wreathed in the forest’s gloomy light
Arise at our bidding
Arise this night

Daughter of darkness
Free from the world’s aching embrace
Show us your desire
Show us your face

Bringer of sorrow
Doomed to see nations rise and fall
Give us your wisdom
Give us your all

Jury of souls
Queen over all of our goals
Open your mouth
Swallow us whole

Keeper of secrets
Knowing the shame hidden so deep
Embrace your children
Now let us sleep

Embrace your children
So we may sleep
