Banished souls cry
while sailing through poisonous lullaby
blood fills the sky
Weary hearts shed tears in their sleep
As the ravaged wail and weep
Beseeching for respite thus brief
Red tears drip down
sobbing beneath the ground
Infernal fire roars for more
Seven generations of rancor
Of noxious souls crying near the shore
Mountains turn deaf on their implore
As oak trees bend and curl
Mother Nature takes a whirl
Alas, echoes of despair
fill the air forevermore...
