"In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light."
(Genesis 1:1-3)

In the beginning
Was an entity all to himself
When nothing was dead or living
and earth was wholly bereft

[YAH]: “With my hands for all to see,
I'll paint my canvas blue and green,
and give it life that it may never fall from me
So everyday I'll hear it pray
of memories of yesterday
and live life more abundantly”

For a moment, all was peaceful
in the face of an endemic foe
But soon, we'd all be bleeding
and fall to the crimson of snow

[Lucifer]: “All the years I have served him
How could I be more disgraced?
For now the fear I failed to realize
has come as the human race
At His wake He’ll find them dead
I’ll paint this valley black and red
and bring to life a whole new kind of dread
So everyday I'll hear them pray
and beg to see the light of day
while I live out my fantasy”

[YAH]: “He knows his place
I know he won’t betray the one that made him
The one who gave him life
But inside myself, a sinking feeling grows
It’s one that cuts through joy just like a knife
I know my enemy
I watch him make his move
to prey upon the only dearest
I know they’ll wait for me,
see that it’s just a test,
and finally prove my wondering theory”

[Lucifer]: “This fruit I give you
Take it from my hands,
and show your God that you can do anything you want
You can trust me
I was one of His dearest friends,
but recently He has betrayed me

Take my fruit
Take it in your hands,
and show your God that I can do anything I want
Thought you could trust me?
Never thought that you’d give in,
and now I finally have my revenge”

[YAH]: “Why must you make me cry
and bring tears to my eyes?
You know I always loved you, my son
I guess this is goodbye
If only I could forgive you,
after an eternity”

[Lucifer]: “Well guess what? I don’t want forgiveness;
I want your kingdom for myself
And if I cannot have it for all the time I’ve known you,
I’ll never be yours again"
