Farewell the tongue cut sparrow,
Once laid the horned hand on heavens golden door.
Draw out your wings in silence,
For penitence and virtue is it's own reward.

Oh cruel and empty echoes glide in to stream and ocean,
Feathered ever dark.
Wrapped in your silken casket,
Your soundless song will boldly win a true loves heart.

Farewell, farewell.
