Assembled in parts, a creation from the darkest of arts
Lonely and abandoned, nameless faceless don't know who I am
Wretched and disgusting, cast out from the temple left to wander the land
Purposeless and left to die, my raison d'etre? Revenge comes to mind

Dead flesh given life, but this life wants to die
Playing god was the sin, that night a man was contrived

Put on trial, kindred we may already be
Pious? What's the difference? What's my god ever done for me?
Righteous yet condemned
Can't see past what they believe
Thy adam I should be,
Satanic daemonic voices speak through me

Just sitting here fearing to live
This man - unafraid to die
Examination of a life
To the last breath we will fight

Stumbling upon the path. Is this truly the way?
Waiting so patiently for the gate of mysteries

Strip yourself of worldly feelings blind your eyes, deafen your ears
This somber dream that's reoccurring paints the world a shade of black
The flowers bloom - the lifeblood of the world will drain away
But I'll remain, I'll carry on towards a shining day

This existence, worthless scraps of metal
Alchemy will turn this worthless corpse to gold, recalling a self most true

But I will be reborn
Embrace a greater form

Heaven's millstone, forsaken for the stars

Another kind of reckoning

Revenge isn't the key to a life worth looking to lead
Let the bastard live what is he to me?
Ascension to new heights is what's been achieved
A monster no more with purpose I've discovered the he
