lyrics

Many years ago
I fell into the flame
I put my life on hold
Cause everything had changed

I became a god
and traveled through the stars
My soul began to rot
When I went too far

Should I accept this burden?
Should I carry on?
And for how long?

Everyone I love is gone
But I still remain
People bow their heads and sing the psalms
As I walk into the flame

I can end my life
I can stop this pain
I remember my wife
But I forget her name

Am I chaotic good
or lawful evil?
Am I misunderstood?
Will I cause upheaval?

Should I accept this burden?
Should I carry on?
And for how long?

Everyone I love is gone
But I still remain
People bow their heads and sing the psalms
As I walk into the flame

5 million people died
It was a massacre on Ganymede
The corporations lied
I could have helped them flee

But I let them down
On that dreadful night
Now I'm honor bound
I'll finally do what's right

I accept this burden
I will carry on
I'll weather this storm

Everyone I love is gone
But I still remain
People bow their heads and sing the psalms
As I walk into the flame
As I walk into the flame
