To the song "Solsbury Hill" by Peter Gabriel,
Lyrics by Merlin Missy

Climbing up on Wyvern's tow'rs
I could see the city lights
Wind was calling sweeter hours
Raven flew out of the night
Swooping, soaring, dancing low
Came in close, I heard a Voice
No way to run, nowhere to go
Consequences of my choice
I did not believe the information
Could not trust the new sensation
Powers thrumming: boom boom boom
"Puck," he said, "Grab your things, I've come to take you home."

To keeping patient I'd resigned
The mortals thought I was a bore
Turning Gargs to humankind
A game I would play never more
So I'd gone from day to day
A shell of who I was before
Teaching, training were my play
Standing, serving only chores
I was falling into mortality
Another human-shaped fatality
My powers went boom, boom, boom
"Hey," he said, "grab your things, I've come to take you home."

Dim illusions melted fast
Leaving just the core of me
Spinning, grinning, free at last
Went to show my family
Fox's eyes went overcast
David did not want to see
Alex spoke of good times past
Lord, what fools these mortals be!
I wanted to cherish this moment
Then I knew what the pain in my soul meant
My heart going boom, boom, boom
"Rave," I said, "You can thank the King, but I'm already home."
