Horror spreads

Death in the air

The world is ending

And the raven stares.

People run in circles

We can't see a thing

No one understands

And the raven stares.

Darkness reigns

Everything comes crashing down

Suffering everywhere

And the raven stares.

The cold eye that sees all

Pierces through the minds of the dying

The blank expression frightens us more

And the raven stares.

We reach desperately for the bird

Try to ask why

But it's just beyond reach; we fall farther into chaos

And the raven stares.

All is gone now

Life has disappeared

All that remains is the pain of the forgotten

...And the raven stares.
