about

Part One of Paradise Lost Trilogy. Lyrics largely taken from "Paradise Lost" by John Milton then massaged until they fit the scheme.

lyrics

I thence invoke thy aid
To my adventurous song
That with no middle flight
Intends to soar above the pain.

What in me is dark illumine
What is low raise and support
As I spin this yarn of war
Waged in vain with no remorse.

Cover your ears and close your mind
Or hear the tail of how we died.

It all began with trumpet calls
On blackened wings the dark one falls
This ancient war was never won,
In this struggle for life we were overrun.

Archfiend:
So come with me, if you believe
'Tis better to reign in hell than serve his creed.

Is this the region, the soil the clime.
Is this the seat we trade for Heaven; this gloom for light?

So come with me, if you believe
'Tis better to reign in hell than serve his creed.

Narrator:
Thus spake the apostate angel
Racked with pain and despair.
Tears such as angels weep burst forth
As his sighs found their way.

Archfiend:
Henceforth his might we know, and know our own.
If our black insurrection rise to confound Heaven's purist light.

A heart that's full of lies
Is a heart I understand
These innocent creatures will be putty in my hands.

Narrator:
How many lies led you to this ground,
A child of God now fallen down
To the place from whence you came
Where everyone knows and hates your name?

Fueled by jeaoulsy and hate
Let your anger forever reign
Where they live to see you die;
Tell me how many lies?

Archfiend:
Life is not unlike a dream
Nothing is as it seems
But I have seen his face.
Damn the light in this place!

God:
I preach messages of forgiveness and light
I sing songs full of love and full of life
My heart is big enough to hold you all
I'll be there for you if you stumble or if you fall.

Archfiend:
I am anger, I am hate!
Fill your soul full of rage!

Raphael:
Beware the Archfiend, now fallen from the light
His intentions are dark indeed, prepare yourselves to fight.
