Not In My Design

 
 

Who could have foreseen it? 
The epic ending 
The hero is on his knees now 
The ground is trembling 
And I’m still here, breathing in lightly 
What would you want me to say? 

The snake bites its master 
Lilith is cast out 
Two lovers are bickering 
One of them lash out 
And I’m still here, bleeding out silently 
What would you have me do? 

And I can’t love you, it’s not in my design 
And I won’t change, not with time 
And lies won’t warm in the coldest night 
These wings don’t fly 

Another hundred thousand years vanish 
As the heretic is captured and branded 
My will bends here, screaming out 
I’ve already called it a truce

Another lost soul seeks repentance 
the prodigal son returns to the heavens 
And I’m still here, seeking out 
What would I have to lose? 

And I can’t love you, it’s not in my design 
And I won’t change, not with time 
Your white horses and black knights 
These sins won’t die 

And I can’t love you, it’s not in my design 
And I won’t change, not with time 
And lies won’t warm in the coldest night 
These wings don’t fly
