Found threads using this title but nothing relevant to the song. Looking for the words for my niece.
Can anyone help?
Thanks

It seems the official title is "Prelude #1/Black Annis". I hope this is what you want, Bekki.

Black Annis

When Annis built this cage
I saw the blueprint on the table
But I was too young to run
She lured me from my play
To her clandestine domain
To tend her illicit garden

Black, black soul
And Annis takes her toll

And from her veil of black
With all the mirrors at her back
She called me into her guarded empire
I treaded soft and lightly
Fear trembling so slightly
Snows in my bones I dream of the white sea

Chorus:
Black, black soul
And Annis takes her toll
Child of sin
Black Annis wins again

When Annis roared and jeered
I knew that no one leaves from here
Her fervid anger don't spare anything
In the frenzy of my senses
She confiscated my defenses
With all the forces of night

When Annis built this cage
I saw the blueprint on the table
But I was too young to run
She lured me from my play
To her clandestine domain
To tend her illicit garden

(Chorus twice)

Black, black soul

Not a rewrite of "Little Sir Hugh"!?

Thanks Bruce.
While we are at it, any info on who wrote it or the story behind it? doesn't sound traditional.

Near's I can figure, it was written by Solas; however,

1) I could be wrong
2) I know not who from the group

Sorry, but someone who has the CD will have to get the info from the 'liner notes'.
