He's laid to all I've done
The illegal poor man's son
As he draws near he screams my name
As he climbs the stairs I wait


I breach the last stair
And walk through the doorway
The Raven standing there
Like a bird of prey

I've been expecting you boy

I close the gap between us
Armed with steel and vengeance
I press the blade against his neck

Can't you see things clearly?
There was no other way
You can't kill me
I'm a bird of prey

I let the cut grow
I open his throat
I let the knife go
Our freedom has been won
I watch the blood flow
The illegal poor man's son

I've searched this whole fucking town
So tell me where is she now?
You've lost your kingdom and crown
Just tell me where is she now

As the night approaches dawn
The Raven smiles as he dies
He gives no answer to the boy
The life is fading from his eyes

Our freedom has been won
The illegal poor man's son

Through the night as the ashes are falling
Through the dust of the city still burning
Walks a boy, for the girl he keeps searching
All he ever wanted was the girl
