Mortal

It was me my lord

When rent from the heavens was I

An endless paradox to ford

A blissful crash from the sky

 

For the weight of sin I bear

Mortality weighs upon me

But I find the trade be fair

For the gods are never free

 

Though I may travel the whole earth round

One day my body will fail

Through my journey I have found

A brighter glory worth a body so frail

 

I have faced the spears

And wielded fire

Strength found in my fears

My drive in my desire

 

Like a moth to the flame

Icarus to the sun

I would rather fall seeking fame

Than miss out on all of the fun

 

Endlessly I have fought

As I will to my final breath

Everything this world wrought

As I smile to greet death
