No harm, no Fowl - that's what they say
A taste so cruel that everything melts away
For who can stand up his glare, so cold?
No room for compassion, the prize is the gold

No harm, no Fowl – like King Midas' touch
Where trouble is, surely he has caused such
Meeting his own ends is all that matters
Brilliant, ingenious plans, but bode disasters

Aurum est potestas, gold is thine power
O' arrogant one, thy taste is so sour
Yet bittersweet, like hunter's devour
And time ticks away, by hour, by hour
Artemis Fowl the Second, the criminal heir
Say you Irish by nature yet one of despair
The tricky harbinger, catching all unaware
Aura of haughtiness, melodramatic flare
To feel the negativity rising through the air

No harm, no Fowl – for he is deceptive
A holder of keys, a keeper of captives
Divisions where he walks, so utterly destructive
A whole new block, an anti-adhesive

No harm, no Fowl – for there is danger here
The things that haunt about him, the causer of fear
O' cold, so frozen, so like that of an arctic tear
So young, but so demanding, for his will is clear

Aurum est potestas, gold is thine power
O' arrogant one, thy taste is so sour
Yet bittersweet, like hunter's devour
And time ticks away, by hour, by hour
Artemis Fowl the Second, the criminal heir
Say you Irish by nature yet one of despair
The tricky harbinger, catching all unaware
Aura of haughtiness, melodramatic flare
To feel the negativity rising through the air

Seeds, seeds, where are those seeds?
Sparks, sparks, where is that spark?
Diamonds, diamonds, raining down
Like crystal waters flowing all around
Keeping, trying, not to in this drown
Waters, reflecting, reflecting growth
Like a choice to make, a life he chose
Decisions, decisions, that make us who we are
This life we lead, will it take us how far?
To the depth of danger or the rise of the star?
To the airs of compassion, to the veins of the dark?
The crimes of the enemy, or the love of the heart?

No harm, no Fowl – that's what they say
However, the rising is the dawn of the new day
I very much intend to turn this into a song, thus the reason for the repeated chorus and whatnot. I hope you understand the theme I was going for - in the writing of this, I halfway wrote it in a format, and halfway wrote it with an air of freedom. So ah, it is a little mixed.

This is written for the Artemis Fowl book series by Eoin Colfer, or rather, in honor of them. While there are some existing songs out there for the series, I am not too fond of them... so I decided to make my own.

When reading, please keep in mind I am actually writing more-of about 10- to 12-year-old Artemis as opposed to his older, far more compassionate ages. Thus, the large amount of negativity presented in these passages.

Sparks and diamonds are all very specific references to specific parts in the series, namely from The Arctic Incident and The Time Paradox. Ah... enjoy!
