"Charon" as written by Michael Dennis Denner and Kim Bendix Petersen....
Welcome My Friend, My Name Is Charon
Please Take My Hand, I Know The Secret Land

Don't Be Afraid... Oh No
I'm Faceless But Don't Fear Now
I'll Take You Safe Across The River Styx

Waste No Time, Soon The Night Will Break Away
That Boy Can Wait, There's Only Room For One

Don't Be Afraid...Oh No
I'm Faceless But Don't Fear Now
I'll Take You Safe Across The River Styx

I Am Your Death
We Must Leave Now, My Boat Is Waiting
On The Other Shore Is The Land Of The Dead

Don't Be Afraid... Oh No
I'm Faceless But Don't Fear Now
I'll Take You Safe Across The River Styx

    General CommentCharon is a myth heres who he is

    Charon, in Greek mythology, is the ferryman of the dead. The souls of the deceased are brought to him by Hermes, and Charon ferries them across the river Acheron. He only accepts the dead which are buried or burned with the proper rites, and if they pay him an obolus (coin) for their passage. For that reason a corpse had always an obolus 1 placed under the tongue.
    Those who cannot afford the passage, or are not admitted by Charon, are doomed to wander on the banks of the Styx for a hundred years. Living persons who wish to go to the underworld need a golden bough obtained from the Cumaean Sibyl. Charon is the son of Erebus and Nyx. He is depicted as an sulky old man, or as a winged demon carrying a double hammer. He is similar to the Etruscan (Charun).
