"Black Annis" as written by and Antje Duvekot....
When Annis built this cage I saw the blueprint on the table
But I was too young to run
She lured me from my plain Into her clandestine domain
To tend her illicit garden

Black, black soul, and Annis takes her toll
Child of sin, Black Annis wins again

And from her veil of black
With all the mirrors at her back
She called me into her guarded empire I treaded soft and lightly
A fear trembling so slightly
Snows in my bones, I dream of the white sea

Black, black soul, and Annis takes her toll
Child of sin, Black Annis wins again

When Annis roared and cheered
I knew that no one leaves from here
Cause her fervent anger don't spare anything
Oh, in a frenzy I dug my trenches
She confiscated my defenses
With all the forces of night

Black, black soul, and Annis takes her toll
Child of sin, Black Annis wins again

So many years ago I still feel her in my bones
I still see her in my dreams
And in the bright of day
She'll come carry me away
On the black wings of the raven
On the pitch black wings of

Black, black soul, and Annis takes her toll
Child of sin, Black Annis wins again
Black, black soul

    General CommentWhat does this song mean? I love it, but I'm not sure what does it mean... I know that Black Annis was an evil witch; and I know that the song is sad.
