I’m in a space inside that
I thought I’d never see.
Where all that I’ve believed in
Turns away from me.
I never have accepted,
That an end justified the means.
And yet the choices I have made
Replays those awful scenes
I’ve tortured, killed, and abandoned.
I’ve stolen things not mine.
For me to save humanity,
I’ve learned to cross the line.
I know it’s worth the sacrifice,
For what is one man’s soul?
In trade for all the billion lives,
That make up the human whole.
I feel I should be punished,
Cause I’ve turned back from the light.
Although I found I had no choice,
The alternative wasn’t right.
To damn us to extinction.
That would have been the cost.
And now I grieve my loss of self,
My soul that is now lost.
