Shattered Glass

In My Veins

The cycle turns…

What I once did in the past,
I am bound to repeat.
A man marked by sin,
to a sin forever bound…

Here I stand before the pool,
the reflection watches me.
A warrior once, a hero, leader,
now but a fool…

    I am lost within desire,
    confusion brought by lust.
    No path before to follow,
    no trails to lead me back.
    The wolf that has been my light
    is now gone and all turns black…

Far back in the past,
under the sky red as blood…

I drunk from the cup
that was to give me strenght.
And that was my great sin,
the doom of my whole kin…

One way to escape - through the golden gate.
A new world awaits - it is time to go.
Enter the blue sky…

Where I found my doom…

    I am lost within desire,
    confusion brought by lust.
    No path before to follow,
    no trails to lead me back.
    The wolf that has been my light
    is now gone and all turns black…

The cycle turns -
the circle of fate…

I drunk from the cup
that was to be my end.
His blood is in my veins,
his fire in my eyes.
As red as is the grass
stained by my countless kills…

His blood in my veins…
Enraged, blinded, I heed his call,
I repeat what I have fought.

My fate lies in his hands…

    I am lost within desire,
    confusion brought by lust.
    No path before to follow,
    no trails to lead me back.
    The wolf that has been my light
    is now gone and all turns black…

My fate lies in his hands,
my hands red with his blood.

I march proud and strong
as gods fall before me;
torn inside, I seek salvation,
to a sin forever bound.

The cycle turns…

It’s time to end this!
I shall bring an end to this curse,
turn the red eyes back to blue.
If redemption lies only in death,
I shall take the beast along!

My life now in his hands…

I drunk from the cup
that gives me strenght to kill.
My last victim shall be the one
that I fought for oh, so long…

His blood flows in my veins…

    I am lost within desire,
    confusion brought by lust.
    No path before to follow,
    no trails to lead me back.
    The wolf that has been my light
    is now gone and all turns black…

His blood flows in my veins…
