Oh hooded man who tends the gates, tempt my faith with golden doors, silver keys and wants of more.
What I seek is ever sought and chosen now would end the thought.
Is that what I truly want? Three forks down but never crossed.
Vengeance of ages ago; a thirst for blood and tombstones rest.
A brother who betrayed me, slashed my wings and caused my fall.
The City of Light now never seen.
A fool but clever! Trotting lies before God.
Believed was he and I thrown upon the Earth so hastily.
Forever gone so long before... Thoughts a distant echo now - "Your life I forever seek."
Oh, but tempt me not, cloaked keeper! Shown before me a way back!
A city of gold bathed in light. Heavens Gate opens with a guiding hand!
Throw away an unending feud! Cast aside and be a better man; welcomed back to the Angel's Throne.
Amended of charges that should never have been.
"Come home my child, once again."
But a third gate shown, is that the one? Resting 'neath a small tree, forgotten of this olden home.
Grown in age and touched by death's embrace. Not reborn - laid to sleep.
Oh how I yearn to be rid of this place!
"Just a step away and loss shall be gained."
Close your eyes and ponder more.
"You may only choose one door."
