In the wavy mirror of shaken water can be seen embroided in
Reflections the wisdom of the monster and the force of the king, the
Repugnance of the ogre and the coldness of progress.
I know you watch over me
Father of all the past
And all that will ever be
You are the first and the last
The watcher of all that lives
The guardian of all that died
The one-eyed God way up high
Who rules my world and the sky
Northern wind take my song up high
To the Hall of glory in the sky
So its gates shall greet me open wide
When my time has come to die
Ciel Errant :)
