about

.“The raven tried to fly” he thinks sadly “…for a lifetime”. As the mind begins to float, he recalls an old legend, in which the raven was once white and pure, with all the future and the best prospects ahead. But then there was the sin. But then there was the crime.

lyrics

Here I stand against the sky - ready to take flight
feeling white as light inside - while the black is out
Here I stand in front of the sun - ready to sink down
feeling warm as flame inside - while the cold is out

I can recall when I was bright, the beauty was the same of snow
I can recall my heart not torn, my wings so strong
but now it’s like a spell

Conclusion - illusion
I spread to the sky with sadness in my eyes
trying to reach the mountains, but I forecast the mighty storm
Conclusion – illusion
My eye has sight upon time……ready to take flight
feeling white as light inside - while the black is out

I can recall when I was young, the morning dawn as my kingdom come
I can recall my soul not torn, my will so strong
but now how foreign am I ?

Conclusion - illusion
I spread to the sky with sadness in my eyes
trying to reach the mountains, but I forecast the mighty storm
Conclusion - illusion
My eye has sight upon time

Bearing this curse of mine
I align to my second sight I received for my sin
together with this black veil, with this black pain, with this black fate
Conlusion: illusion
