As he walked these desolated fields,
he felt his spirit weaken
These were the days that you know not,
this was long ago
The tortured soul of fathers old
was his to seek revenge for
Those of pride who would not bend,
before the laws and gods of man

This was a race you have never seen
and neither will you ever
For these were haunted down
like beasts, by mortal fools
- the human race
In his quest for sweet revenge
he walked so tall and proud
Until he met a figure that now made
him fall and stumble blind

This was what his quest was for
not to seek revenge
This creature in a human shape,
with feelings so intense
He knew her as no other,
but not in shape of man
Their spirit re-united
as he took her by the hand
This was a race you have never seen
and neither will you ever
For these were haunted down like
beasts, by mortal fools
- the human race
In his quest for sweet revenge
he walked so tall and proud
until he met a figure that now made
him fall and stumble blind
This figure was of human race
A woman of such beauty
that he could not help
to stumble on his way to seek revenge
As he looked upon her face he saw
such passion in her eyes
It reminded him
of tales he had heard,
of mankind so-called paradise
Spirit torn from spirit
and spirit torn apart
When human race
saw through his mask,
and tore the two apart
Spirit torn from spirit
and spirit torn apart
Human race I curse thee
With all my blackened heart
