Poison rain, faded Light Down it pours, as day turns night The sky is grey, with clouds above Dimly shines, the moon of love Waves they crash against the wall The eerie winds, cause leaves to fall Dying trees, silhouetted to sight Though everything feels, so perfectly right Carpe Noctem; seize the night  That’s when …
