I made this song a year ago in under an hour for a school project. The project was to write a song or poem in the style of the classic poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" by Dylan Thomas.

One guy in my class decided to write a happy acoustic version of the song. I tried to make the song sound as evil as I could without turning to death metal. Hope you enjoy it, posting only because I have no other audio posted at the moment and nothing new is coming soon.

Lyrics:

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
