Hear now this story of the man that should not be
A ghoul of blackened torment, sullen atrocity
A kindred soul to the devils own, malignance personified
Cast from his fire he molests the purest light

Profane to humanity menaced by flesh and bone
Screams of the unknown youth to him the sweetest tone
Undying in his will to kill his blood lust is profound
For the blood of the lamb I've got to bring him down

Chorus
For all the young lives you have slain
Fear now you shall obtain
Vengeance is mine
For every young one that has died
Your psychopathic genocide
Vengeance is mine

I shall do what the law won't do, I can make the sacrifice
In the names of these bodies which held such precious life
Mine is not to ask forgiveness this deed I've proudly done
Without god without the devil this time I have won

    General CommentBilly Kincaid is a serial child molester/murderer, on which Spawn releases a well deserved punishment, for that same Billy Kincaid kidnapped little Cyan.

    General CommentAt this point on the album, rejecting his new role (as stated in the previous song), in an attempt to reconcile the being he has become, the hero brutally kills a psychotic child murderer as retribution, hoping it will take him on the road to righteousness.

    General CommentDidn't Spawn kill a child rapist or something? I think it was in the animated series, not the comic, but still. It makes sense with "molests the purest light" and "Screams of the unknown youth to him the sweetest tone".

    General CommentIt's about Spawn, as the entire 'Dark Saga" album is. I don't know what part of the story, since I've never actually followed Spawn, but it seems to focus on him getting vengeance on those that wronged him during his life.
