Doomed?Everyone knowsThat the darkness is wrongThat it will corrupt youDestroy you before longBut the darkness protects youHides you from foesGives you solace when youWant no one to knowAnd the light is said to beKind and true and fairTo be loving and caringTo light the dark, everywhereBut throughout history the lightHas spread a dark and shadowed line:Witch burnings, the Crusades,Thousands of people have diedSo although you say that GodHas damned the dark to deathI stand protecting itWith my every breathActions speak louder than words, you say,And their actions say "no"But I mist be dark, as you call itBut I won't let a single life goI don't want to be corruptedBut mercy must be shared.I don't think I am betterBut it seems that I'm more fairSo if I am doomed to dieLet me die protecting todayAnd I am not afraid to liveInside the shades of gray
