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 dilemma
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.'
