In a state of illumination, the Shining One reflects upon his past
with a mixture of pride and regret.


I crawled in the mud and I screamed at the sky
I learned how to fall and I learned how to fly
I have loved, and I’ve lost, confirmed and contrived
And I have lived a thousand lives

I’ve whispered temptation into archbishop’s ears
As I wiped all the blood from the tips of their spears
Damned all the souls who were bled by their knives
And I have lived a million lives

I’ve sewn poison apples and eaten them all
And rung aged bells hung in old ancient halls
I am dark and I shine, with no reason or rhyme
And I have died a thousand times

Exacted my will and my ways on the world
Been crushed by the weight of the stones which I hurled
Death brings no end to the course of my crimes
And I have died a million times

Across sunny glades there’s a clear bell that rings
As I add yet another bead to my string
I shall welcome the end if it ever arrives
As I have lived a thousand lives
