1. Tear for Hong Kong
Look, child at the fireworks.
11:59 – think your last free thought!
pray your last prayer
sing your last song
The Dragon King sleeps
in his undersea palace:
Our Last Hope.
Under the waves
the Emperor sleeps –
For he will come again.
Sleep, and dream your last dream.
They can never get you there.

2. The Dragon
Thunder roared and clashed
Lightning tore the sky
The obsidian Dragon rose to the heavens
Roaring a greeting to the demons
Its eyes were fiery red
Its gaze as deadly as flame
Cruel spikes adorned its back
And Talons raked the air
Scales shimmered as it caught the lightning
Secreting its wisdom of a thousand years
The treasures it kept,
The thieves and evil it killed
Flames were thrown
Burning the clouds
Bringing down the rain
The dragon screamed once,
And faded off into the night
Never to be seen again

3. The Dragon
He licks the Yellow custard
From the dead dog’s eye.
He feeds upon the maggots
that in its stomach lie.
He breaths a cursed fire
that scorches mans desire
And crushes little children ’til they cry.
His jaws are dripping wet
With the slime of mortal sin.
He acknowledges the world
through a black toothed grin.
The slime is dripping down
Upon the hallow ground
And the smell of death to cover where he’s been
His eyes like glassy beads
Stare through the soul of man.
And see their lives in destitution
As only evil can.
He has the smell of death
Upon his rancid breath
This has been his way since time began.

4. The Dragon’s Curse
Enter darkness. Leave the light.
Here be nightmare. Here be fright.
Here be dragon, flame and flight.
Here be spit-fire. Here be grief.
So curse the bones of unbelief.
Curse the creeping treasure-thief.
Curse much worse the dragon-slayer.
Curse his purse and curse his payer.
Curse these words. Preserve their sayer.
Earth and water, fire and air.
Prepare to meet a creature rare.
Enter, now, if you dare.
Enter, now… the dragon’s lair!

5. The Dragon’s Song
do you see them?
They are so beautiful
They live in my heart
The heart of a dragon.
Can you feel it?
It’s song flows beneath my wings
As I fly away from you
In my sorrow
On the wings of a dragon
Can you smell them?
You were raised among their scent of life
One day you will return to them
And to me
That is my hope
The hope of a dragon
Can you hear it?
My pain fills the skies
I considered you no less than daughter
In all but blood you were my own
But now we must part
And you must forget
But I will remember
I will cry tears for us both
The tears of a dragon
When evil is vanquished
You will come
and dry them
The prayer of a dragon
