My heart does grow with each passing day
Yet still I must endure the pain
And against my bonds of iron I strain
And feel my heart devoured once more
And hold the gaze of beast with gore
Before it mockingly flies away.
What terrible gift have I begot?
For compassion was my only crime
Now I'm to suffer for all of time
A tribute to my cunning mind
For stealing fire away for mankind
This terrible fate now becomes my lot.
A powerful force it is that keeps me here
Much stronger than these chains of steel
For though I think, I most often feel
This darkness that consumes the light
And turns the day to bleakest night
What greater prison is there than fear?
Again I wish to raise my sight
To the heavens above this cursed stone
Where I suffer this horrible pain alone
And claim my rightful place up there
Amid the host in the etheral air...
To steal once again their eternal light.
