April 27

Takhisis

On a night like this
Like a fate’s twist
I saw her wings spread
The sky turned dark red

In a moment I knew
Our life was through
I was filled with regret
And things not said

But the dragon was there
To be admired, not tamed
Worshipped and not killed
By a fool’s wish

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red

And with a deep kiss
By her dead lips
And her fire-breath
She destroyed our faith

Burned the remains
And I saw the truth
Through the Abyss doomed

Huma’s fooled
But the dragon was there
To be admired, not tamed
Worshipped and not killed
By a fool’s wish

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red

Like the eyes of Raistlin here meanwhile
I see everything dying

Hear from the Abyss
The music slips
It’s magic black
And you’re a puppet

Lame and seduced
Sweet is the abuse
Closer the tomb
You’re her fool

Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
Queen of the sky
And empress of the night
Takhisis, five heads
Black, white, blue, green, red
