You hateful messengers of vain temptations
Damn your--I mean our--fuming sarcastic vows
Cut those hideous smirks from your poisoned faces.
Is this vain life worth the Devil's approval?
I'm tired of flapping and fluttering
In an aurora of deceit.
God's power is too great, too magnificent
His glory is too amazing.
I have given my soul too long for a fool's paradise.
This hateful home to choruses of vile demons
Will no longer be my resting place.
Fueled by revenge, we've poisoned innocent minds,
In the name of envy, I've despised creation.
Oh! Wake up from this aggravated slumber!
Open your hate-intoxicated eyes to the truth
Can't you see? We are but whimpering pawns
Used as the Deceiver's clinging bait
By mocking, cursing, tempting--
We relish in other's torment
What pitiful existence we are engulfed in.
Appearing as angels, our sorry slander crucifies love
But what for? Stop your wretched whispering
Listen to me you graceless idolaters!
Won't you cease the dismembering of the saints?
The Almighty has defeated evil already,
And soon He will dismember you.
I am throwing away my wicked essence;
I cast aside all deceit and envy
And sprint hell-bent for love.
No longer am I Satan's fingers of allurement,
I am falling back in rank with the glorious army
From which I came--will you join me?
