"Revelation (Divus Pennae ex Tragoedia)" as written by Matthew James Cooper, Andreas D Allen and Cleveland Alexander Watkiss....
Against the wall, they see you
No where to run, nowhere to hide
Hero in mask, the cracks are showing
A faceless god to shade to perfect light

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die
Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet

Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

Savior or fool, the mystery
Fades into the cruel shade night
The broken disguise, can not comprehend
What was and will be
Until the very end

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die

Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet
Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

Yeah!

Oh, when the north wind steep
That is when we'll meet again
Oh, when the shadows keep
In the twilight I'll descend

Good and evil
Never ends
Your just a means to an end!

Against the wall, they see you
No where to run, nowhere to hide
Hero in mask, the cracks are showing
A faceless god to shade to perfect light

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die
Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet

Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

Savior or fool, the mystery
Fades into the cruel shade night
The broken disguise, can not comprehend
What was and will be
Until the very end

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die
Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet

Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

Against the wall, they see you
Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Hero in mask, the cracks are showing
A faceless god to shade to perfect light

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die

Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet

Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight
It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

Savior or fool, the mystery
Fades into the cruel shade night
The broken disguise, can not comprehend
What was and will be
Until the very end

Wounds of hate that pierce so deep
They never die
Oh, my revenge is bitter sweet

Lost in the night
Wandering alone
Try as I might to escape the fight

It never lets me go
Oh no, oh no, I've got to find a way
A way, a way, a way to rise above it all

    General CommentThis song is simply amazing. It is obviously a prequel to the song The Divine Wings of Tragedy, as the ending is a reprise of one of this epic's themes.

    An interesting note, however: the acoustic ending passage in this song is in Ebm, whereas in Divine Wings it is in Dm... just a half-step difference. Bizarre.

    General CommentWell, while this song can be taken as a prequel to Divine Wings of Tragedy, which is also about Lucifer, it is more obviously the concluding song on a concept album based on Milton's Paradise Lost- the song therefore deals with Satan victorious, having succesfully tempted Eve and subsequently Adam and getting them ejected from paradise as he had been. However, Satan finds that his "revenge is bittersweet"- the chorus reflects his desire to rise above the whole system of good and evil and the revenge cycle. A masterpiece of a closer to a masterpiece of an album, and a great take on Milton's poem.

    General CommentYou guys are both right, the album Paradise Lost is based on the works of John Milton and so is the epic piece "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy". This album starts with The Fall (The Eye Of The Inferno) and continues to touch on major events such as the fall of man and so on. This album is a prequel to song "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy". I don't know if you guys noticed, but "Divus Pennae ex Tragoedia" is Latin for "The Divine Wings Of Tragedy". HoratioCaine, I also noticed the that the final passage of this song was half a step lower, cool stuff.

    General CommentI think it's a little bit funny that the Latin is wrong. I think Romeo must have put "Divine", "Wings", "of", and "Tragedy" one at a time into an online translator or something. Same with Oculus ex Inferni probably. Besides that, totally amazing album.

    General CommentI think this album is about Lucifer breaking God's shackles . Lucifer means the bearer of light. Christ was quoted as him being Lucifer, setting God "the people" free. Of course this is my theory.
