JK Rowlings own the Harry Potter world and I make no monies from this. I have been a fan of Silversun for a while and I do not own the lyrics or the great song The Pit. It appeals to me in Severus Snape acceptance of the Dark Lord Voldemort. The awesome song belongs to Silverspun only.

Severus Snape visited Hogsmeade on his last visit before graduation. He walked eying the alley warily unless the despised Marauders made his one last visit regrettable.

An older blonde hared wizard approached and he pulled out his wand in defense.

"Put your wand away Severus Snape for I heard great things from you. Deeply seated in the Dark Arts are we?"

I'm marching through the branches in a fit of wanderlust

To see you in a black hole reaching out for something just

Silhouettes of neighbors dancing in disgust

I'm sure you recognize my noise and you heard about the Pit

Been told to be afraid of everything that lives within

But it's much worse where you are

So will you go for it?

I have a feeling you might

Feeling you might

Severus did not pull his wand back. "What do you want of me? " Young voice snarling out.

Lucius looked to the young gangly man with greasy dark black lank hair and chuckled.

"I am Lord Malfoy, esteemed alumni of the House of Slytherin and I think you may be worthy."

Somebody somewhere will clean out your wounds

With dirty fingers

We'll bury the lie

Somebody somewhere

Will clean out your wounds

We'll bury the lie

Bury the lie

Lord Malfoy watched the young man in tattered robes show interest but guarded. "How do you propose that?"

"Cautious, untrusting and full of ange Severus Snape." Lucius murmured. "You'll fit in perfectly. May I have a moment of your time as I do not have my wand and yours is pointed at me?"

Severus eyed the man dressed in fine robes not putting away his wand. "I've heard of you. You are a member of the Board of Governors. What do you want of me?"

"I want to take you to greatness Severus Snape." Lucius murmured.

Now we tumble down a hill to a fire with a crowd

The flicker becomes thicker as we bottom out

The residents don't even notice the sudden shouts

When your eyes can adjust and you see what's in view

Discolored and distempered smiles that seen you

Do you realize we were all once like you?

I have a feeling you might

Feeling you might

Somebody somewhere

Will clean out your wounds

With dirty fingers

We'll bury the lie

Somebody somewhere

Will clean out your wounds

We'll bury the lie

Bury the lie

Lucius looked to the young man sensing distrust and anger. Oh yes he would be a perfect candidate for the Dark Lord.

"Put down your wand Severus Snape and let me escort you to my Manor where we can talk in private. I promise after you hear my words you will have all that you ever wanted in our association." Lucius murmured.

The young man looked to the finely dressed wizard sullenly. "I am a student and cannot go past Hogsmeade."

Lucius chuckled. "I can take you away and have you back before the carriages leave." Holding out his hand and waited. Severus put away his wand curious of what a Lorded family wanted of him and held out his hand.

"Well decided Severus Snape." Lucius murmured and Apparated them away.

Arriving at his library he went to the liquor cabinent and poured a hefty helping of Firewhiskey and held it out to the boy.

"Come now Severus. You are distrusting and you need it to listen to what I present." Lucius encouraged.

Severus took the drink and sipped it, feeling the fiery liquid slide down his throat, a pleasing warmth spreading throughout his body at his first drink of Firewhiskey.

"Finnish the drink and we can talk." Lucius commanded tossing back his own drink.

He watched the young wizard finish his drink and stood waiting, empty glass in hand.

Lucius placed his glass down. "I've heard great things about you Severus. Well seated in the Dark Arts and I heard of how the Mudblood treated you. But all is not lost Severus for you can pay back those that torment you. There is a wizard that will rescue us all from hated Mudbloods and those arrogant that associate with them. I've heard the stories concerning you and you are much abused."

"What of it?" Severus snarled out. "I'll be away in a month's time and never have to face them again!"

"Indeed Severus Snape. I heard of your passion for potions and I want you to meet the greatest wizard of all time. Just meet with him and despite what you decide I will provide you the finest apprenticeship in potions. That is what you desire is it not? That and payback to James Potter and his gang?"

No, no

No one comes

No one goes

No, no

No one comes

No one goes

Recognize my noise and you heard about the Pit

Been told to be afraid of everything that comes within

We can talk about it later

But I think you've given in

We can talk about it later

But I think you've given in

I had a feeling you might

Bury the lie

Oh, oh

Severus met with the Dark Lord and his sweet words moved him especially the last.

Voldemort looked to the young wizard that Lucius sponsored. A perfect man for what he needed and spoke of his plans, Weavening his charm and watch the young man fall down and bowed.

"I promise you perfect service My Lord!" Severus gasped out.

Voldemort stood up from his chair and grabbed the young wizard's pale left arm and pushed his wand to it, watching the young man fall unconscious as the tattoo of a snake and skull appeared on the boy's arm.

Voldemort observed the man. "Take him back Lucius. You have found a perfect Knight for my service.'

Lucius gathered up Severus and nodded to Voldemort before Apparating away.
