This tale i tell that all may see,
Behind god's truth lurks treachery.
[voice of god]
'mine is the right to glory and light,
And you shall have heartache and pain,
Yours must be hell -
For in heaven i'll dwell,
I care not for that earthly domain.'
[host of righteous angels]
'for crimes against divinity -
The loneliness of purgatory,
Your kingdom rule - humanity,
Mankind shall be your hell.'
'why have you done this to me -
Tell me what is my crime,
I'm tried and convicted -
Guilty the fate that is mine.
You say i'm a devil -
Then by hell the devil i'll be.'
'as aeons passed without cessation -
Brewing hatred from damnation,
In darkness satan waited -
Laughed as god the earth created,
And man in his own image made -
Unaware that plans were laid,
'till from the dark eternal night -
A serpent crawled into the light.
And so from darkness a rage without measure -
Burst spreading the cancer 'cross eden,
Corrupting and tempting and never relenting,
Abusing man's newly found freedom.'
'out of the abyss i come the avenger
Shapeless and faceless - yet i have a name,
I shall tighten my grip on your now flawed creation,
Endeavour to show you the meaning of pain.'
'it soothes my heart,
To see you cry,
When i am done,
You will learn as i -
To suffer in hell.'
'impaled on the horns of a dilema -
It seems what were my nightmares,
Are now naught but dreams,
For you who have riches know paradise well,
And i who have nothing am burning in hell.'
