Beauty surrounding me This tranquility's domain Take my hand and be free As my purpose escapes alone Peace is in my mind I feel kinship with the land You are of mankind Why have you sought me out? I come from afar To grant you the knowledge of kings Follow me into the stars Let me show you the way With the strength of one thousand men I will rule you as your God The city's walls will keep you trapped You can't run away I hear your cries Seeking answers from the sky above But there's only clouds So worship me I will grant you mercy If you bow, bow down A calm from within As the river carries my pain The breeze caress my skin And the trees they are my home Your beauty is so kind An your hazel eyes pierce my soul For you I'll leave my world behind Will you show me the way Death! Disease! Famine! Addiction! Slavery! Misery! Corruption! Destruction! All that surrounds me is filth and decay The walls of the city invite willing prey And all of this wealth is hoarded by craven lords Who guard it with soldiers, bearing blood splattered swords You think you're strong but you're just a man Though you think you are a god But you are nothing like one now You have no shame The words you say Won't be answered by the sky above Save for a cloud So we will see If your might is enough to Hold your ground The world watches Judging all the sin and evil he has done How will he answer For his punishment has only just begun Man is quick to blame his nature for its crimes Claiming darkness will corrupt you, make you blind The wild traps you and exposes what you are Your actions show a broken man, a broken heart You are beneath me! I earned this power with my strength and grace The skies exalt me You can't perceive the power you now face! You will be vanquished And no one will remember who you were So come and face me And prove to me that you are more than words
