INTRODUCTION:

This tale I tell that all may see,
behind God’s truth lurks treachery.

VOICE OF GOD:

“Mine is the right to glory and light,
and you shall have heartache and pain,
yours must be Hell –
for in Heaven I’ll dwell,
I care not for that earthly domain.”

HOST OF RIGHTEOUS ANGELS:

“For crimes against divinity –
the lonliness of purgatory,
your kingdom rule – Humanity,
Mankind shall be your Hell.”

LUCIFER:

“Why have you done this to me –
tell me what is my crime,
I’m tired and convicted –
guilty the fate that is mine.
You say I’m a Devil –
then by Hell the Devil I’ll be.”

NARRATION:

“As aeons passed without cessation –
brewing hatred from damnation,
in darkness Satan waited –
laughed as God the Earth created,
and man in his own image made –
unaware that plans were laid,
’till from the dark eternal light –
a serpent crawled into the light”.

“And so from darkness a rage without
measure –
burst spreading the cancer ‘cross Eden,
corrupting and tempting and never relenting,
abusing man’s newly found freedom.”

LUCIFER:

“Out of the abyss I come the avenger
shapeless and faceless –
Yet I have a name,
I shall tighten my grip on your now
flawed creation,
endeavour to show you the meaning
of pain.”

“It soothes my heart,
to see you cry,
when I am done,
you will learn as I –
to suffer in Hell.”

“Impaled on the horns of a dilemma –
it seems what once were my nightmares,
are now naught but dreams,
for you who have riches know paradise well,
and I who have nothing am burning in Hell.”
