Bestow upon me knowledge
Wizard, all-knowing, all-wise
I want to rule my kingdom
Make sweet the breeze, not once defiled
Dethrone the evil prince's iron fists in velvet gloves of sin
Parade the grey-robed monks, the vestal virgins
And wheel the wyvern's in
Let the ceremony consecrate the marriage
Let me be the protege of five magics

Give me alchemy!
Give me sorcery!
Give me wizardry!

Magic if you please
Master all of these
Bring him to his knees
I master five magics
Possessed with hellish torment
I master magics "5"
Hunting the abyss lord
Only one will stay alive
He who lives by the sword will surely also die
He who lives in sin will surely live the lie

    General CommentPretty sure it's based on a book called Master of 5 Magics or something like that.

    General CommentThere are 2 possible meanings to this song 1 the speaker lives under the oppressive Abyss Lord so he tries to master the 5 Magics But the Abyss Lord already masterd the 5 Magics so the speaker fail and dies as derived from the line " He who lives by the sword Will surely also die".Or the speaker deafets the Abyss Lord but is corrupted by the power he now weilds and becomes the new Abyss Lord as derived from the line"He who lives in sin Will surely live the lie".Personally I prefer the latter.

    General CommentDoes anybody ever research? Eru-kun has it perfect. The speaker want to overthrow the oppressive Abyss King. To do this, he journeys to master the 5 magics, but in doing so, becomes evil and power-hungry just like the Abyss Lord he opposes. Since the Abyss King already knew the 5 magics, he wins the fight. The hero dies, don't be mistaken. Resistance is futile, huh? Nice dead-on shot though Eru-kun.
