lyrics

I don't know if anyone
Will ever find this note
I write to leave a record
Of the one thing that I know
And though I am not sure
If anybody else survived
These words will live
Though I might die

The earth is poisoned now
Barren as the wastes
Myself and my companions
We made it down into these caves
Now all my friends are gone
And I am fading fast
This testament
Will be my last.

I leave this message for posterity
Whoever finds it here, this letter is for you
This final message is my legacy:
Father, forgive me. I know not what I do
I destroyed the world for love of You.

I won a holy war
But forfeited my soul
I went off to the crusades
And lost sight of my goals
It was always said
That I'm the best at what I do
And I thought that I
was serving You.

Buildings vaporized
No traces to be found
Humans and humanity
Lay dead upon the ground
All my life's been black and white
With nothing in between
I only wish
My hands were clean
