Since I have received several emails on this particular subject, this page is for the songs mentioned in "Raven". If you happen to read a lyric that you like and want to know where it's from, then look no further. Under each chapter number there is a song lyric. This is also the sound byte that should be playing when you open that page. I will provide the information right next to the chapter number. If I have forgotten any songs mentioned in the story, please email me and let me know. This page will be updated as each new chapter is completed.
