The Shining One seeks a means by which he may cheat death for another mortal with whom he has fallen in love.


Many colored beads along a string
And halls of dusty bells which never ring
Veins which ache and pain for poison’s sting
While all tomorrow’s sorrows sweetly sing:
“There is only the law”

Always chose to roam instead of stand
Shards are shattered, scattered through the land
It’s not enough to simply know I am
Many shining beads along the strand
Is there a way to bend the law?
(There is no way to bend the law)

Rustling in the reeds around the lake
Whispers of the law we never break
Oh the many hammer strokes upon the stake
Eye of bat, tongue of newt, wing of snake
There is no way to bend the law
(There is no way to bend the law)

Now I wander lost within this cave
For the law spares neither cowardly nor brave
Even as we’re lying in our grave
To the law we must all remain a slave
There is only the law
