I do not know what I’ve become;
It’s clear now that I’m no more me,
Maybe I was, but now I am,
Maybe now I was.
The darkness in my soul shines forth
The light, subdued, is put to flight
Now reigns the terror of the night
‘Tis the despot that is light.
So lift your heads o gates of hell
Let loose your fury from your well
For I have answered the reaper’s knell
I am free from my cell.
Plunge deep your sword and let me rest
Draw out the pain in my breast
Now I am free; I’ve passed the test
Maybe I’ve just begun my quest.
