Verse 1

Don't weep for me, mother, if I don't return from my quest.

I've been more dead than alive, at least death will grant me rest.

Don't weep for me, mother, search my old castles in your chest,

Find my untainted shadow, remember me at my best.

Chorus

I shall kill him,

Or I shall be killed.

When my light's dim,

My scars will be healed.

This is not life,

It's nightmares unleashed.

Let Fate arrive,

And grant me some peace.

Verse 2

Don't weep for me, mother, I'll find liberation today,

A warm sun shining over my long lost meadows of hay.

Don't weep for me, mother, I'll find the soul I sold away,

The child, the virgin, the one who wasn't the Devil's prey.

Chorus

I shall kill him,

Or I shall be killed.

When my light's dim,

My scars will be healed.

This is not life,

It's nightmares unleashed.

Let Fate arrive,

And grant me some peace.

Bridge

One of us loses,

The other one lives.

The hand that just takes,

Or the heart that gives?

The verdict will be delivered tonight.

Don't weep for me, mother, I'll be alright.

Chorus

I shall kill him,

Or I shall be killed.

When my light's dim,

My scars will be healed.

This is not life,

It's nightmares unleashed.

Let Fate arrive,

And grant me some peace.
