You made me cry the tears of a child
you left me wandering out in the wild
you made me cry the tears of a child
and I died that night, I died...

oh hush, my darling, can't you see them?
the beasts of darkness in the garden
the feeling as... (?)
the bed is burden, the pillow is the night

They want to tear the flesh of the innocent
they want to thwart the quest of the valley and...
Dear Avion, don't lose faith in humanity
we've seen so much depravity
it drives me to insanity

You made me cry, you made me cry...
you made me cry, you made me cry...

You made me cry the tears of a child
you left me wandering out in the wild
you made me cry the tears of a child
and I died that night, I died...

We stumble forward in the blackness
the beasts are feeding off my madness
Dear Avion, I don't regret a thing
my death will finally bring an end to my suffering

And now life as we know it slows to a stop
the waking world blurs into a fantasy
ours no longer have definition or boundaries
and the last great war is fought and won

Gremlins and goblins and all the creatures of the night
now hear my anthem as I hum to you and fill you with fright

You made me cry the tears of a child
you left me wandering out in the wild
you made me cry the tears of a child
and I see beyond the stars

You made me cry the tears of a child
you left me wandering out in the wild
you made me cry the tears of a child
and I died that night, I died...
