Have you ever heard a Raven as he flies beneath the skies?

Have you hearkened his warning to shed your own disguise?

In your trance, you keep living in misery.

As if you wish your spirit to die.

LET Raven de-spell you and remove you from your trance.

For the Great Mystery awaits you with experience –

the kind you never knew you could have.

In a glance you may set your ego free.

That is, if you wish to be wise.

That is, if you wish to survive.
