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
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
Endeavour to show you the meaning
'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.'
