Your Sun more glorious than mine,
Shine better & brighter than all,
Your Sun is fool's gold,
Nay don't you see?

You, a phony, a traitorous serpent,
Steal thunder from under innocent feet,

Armored with a thorn-encrusted blade,
Slash, slash away
I, a fading memory,
You, the warring tyrant.

You stole my hope,
You slaughtered my faith,
You trampled my life,
Oh, despise your shame!

I am not beaten,
I am cast away.
I am who I am.
