lyrics

Taken the long way
Dark realms I went through
I arrived
My vision's so clear

In anger and pain
I left deep wounds behind
But I arrived
Truth might be changed by victory

Beyond the void but deep within me
A swamp of filth exists
A lake it was of crystal beauty
But Arda's spring went by

I've heard the warning
Well curse my name
I'll keep on laughing
No regret, no regret

Don't fear the eyes of the dark Lord
Morgoth I cried
All hope is gone but I swear revenge
Hear my oath
I will take part in your damned fate

I will always remember their cries
Like a shadow which covers the light
I will always remember the time
But it's past

I cannot turn back the time
(I)
Don't look back
There's still smoke near the shore
But I arrived, revenge be mine

I will take part in your damned fate
Morgoth I cried
It's my oath
So don't fear the eyes
Of the dark Lord

Suddenly I realized
(Soon you will be free)
The prophecies
(Set your spirit free)
I've never believed in
My deeds were wrong

I've stained the land
And slain my kin
(Burning Soul)
There's no release from my sins
It hurts, the curse of Feanor runs long

Time and only time will tell us
Tell, was I right or wrong?
When anger breaks through
I'll leave mercy behind

I will take part in your damned fate
Morgoth I cried
It's my oath
So don't fear the eyes
Of the dark Lord

I will always remember their cries
Like a shadow they'll cover my life
But I'll also remember mine
(And)
After all, I'm still alive

Morgoth I cried
All hope is gone but I swear revenge
It's my oath
I will take part in your damned fate
