Pray for Vengeance

By on October 21, 2017

Fenestrelle grips me behind cold walls
Where I still feel the fear from the commissaire’s call
A man condemned for reasons unknown
Shackled to steel, shackled to stone
I had no name, I did no crime
But soon found reason in two years time
They wanted my love, they wanted my wealth
They wanted my blood, I won’t destroy myself
Father Torri told me that I should stay my sword
“Vengeance is mine, I will repay” said the Lord

Walking the path of revenge, be careful what you crave
Stay pure of intent or join them in the grave

7 years pass and I’m a free man
A hidden treasure fuels a bitter plan
I know I’ll plot until the last breath
To ruin who sent me to a living death
Much has changed since the years went by
The accusations of an English spy
My love lost courted by my best friend
And tiers of society I now ascend
Wiser men have said to turn the other cheek
But my path is set now so save it for the weak

Walking the path of revenge, be careful what you crave
Stay pure of intent or join them in the grave

You want vengeance, you’ll have vengeance!

The first one I murder, yes, in cold blood
Stuck like a pig and dragged through the mud
The second one’s daughter is the next I’m upon
She dies from shock married to a con
I stabbed her father, cries of denial
And poisoned the third from a witch’s vial
I torched their business on unholy ground
And framed their spawn to turn it all around
Yet the fourth one killed me before my plot was done
Didn’t heed the warning, trapped by the web I spun

Walking the path of revenge, be careful what you crave
Stay pure of intent or join them in the grave
