You take my breath away...
As fate keeps me locked away

As I hopelessly beg for my life to end
My iron eyes tell the tale
I can be only this
I see the fear growing in their lost eyes
I am the ax and this is why I must not fear the end
Pen wears its steady course across the page

As I hopelessly beg for my life to end
I wish I could make you see, I wish I could make you see through the pain
I have to serve...no one else will fight...no one else will fight...so I must
Heroes always pay in their blood

Fear has been lost to faith
Of which we must prevail
I will destroy all those who oppose me
My iron eyes tell the tale
I can be only this
I see the fear growing in there...
