I For An Eye Lyrics

Sabbat – I For An Eye Lyrics

This tale I tell that all may see,
Behind God's truth lurks treachery.
'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.'
'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.'
