"Fortuna" as written by and Selim Hakki Balamir....
Am I but your clockwork hero?
From here in the last ditch
Toe to toe, blow for blow -
You are the enigma
Well nevermind!
The future's already happened
And there is always someone left to fight to the death
With everybreath inside this body -
My dreams are what's keeping me alive!

And it is wise to be careful when the animal shows no fear
Puny human - you are no match for me
For things are never as they appear

Now I've been freed from the ropes that bind
Well who is the puppetmaster?
Dishing out an eye for an eye and spitting teeth
Well you'll never take me alive!
O Fortuna
Am I alone in this darkness we call redemption
Well I could not change you
No more than I could change my shadow
No more than I could fly to the moon

    General CommentI have a feeling that it's a song (Like Orff's O Fortuna before it) which is about gambling. Sel seems to focus on the gambler's inability to fight the addiction. That said, I'm not exactly sure. Possibly about a stubborn poker player.
