Xystus - Act 2 Sc. 5: The Message

rate me

Emperor Primos:]

No matter what I do

This craving never seems to fade

Death made me envy him

The aching wore my patience thin

I thrive on my rage

The hours seemed days as I thought:

"Yes... Death is a Godsend,

For power sooths my pain..."

[Diegu:]

You can't say you're healing

It's ought to feel nice... pretty good

To see all those beneath you

Blaming their God - instead of you

Primos you've been fooled

You're Dreath's recruit - merely a tool

He promised you a cure

To fix the void inside your soul...

Alas... this isn't so

Your mind has been tricked by the

Serpent's tongue

You've merely become what he'd

Seen in you:

A pawn of Death

[Emperor Primos:]

You think I'm so naive?

No - Death won't trick me!

But why do I feel strange?

I seem to hesitate

A voice inside my head

Why won't it leave me be?

I feel... I know...

[Diegu:]

Primos you've been fooled

You're Death's recruit - merely a tool

He promised you a cure

To fix the void inside your soul

A heart corrupted by evil

[Emperor Primos:]

I can't let go... It's like I'm not in

Control

[Diegu:]

Believe... you have the strength to break free...

[Emperor Primos:]

I'm ashamed of what I became

Throughout the years

[Diegu:]

Know this:

There is no fate

But what we make for ourselves

All can change

When the mind is the heart

Be one in body and soul

Go back - to the moment you chose

Your dark ways

Go back and relive all those moments

Of fear

Relinquish yourself from the chains of

The past

And you'll be freed from Death

[Death:]

Primos - don't you dare betray me

Diegu tells you nothing lies

Think of the man

I have let you become

I gave you life - through me you've

Survived

I gave you all - when nothing was left

But dust

I was the one who offered you

A chance to see it all anew

I gave you might beyond compare

I will avenge myself - I swear

[Diegu:]

Oh, it has been a burden to carry

[Emperor Primos:]

I will learn...

To med the future I shattered

[Diegu:]

What lies ahead...

Where do you wish to begin?

Emperor Primos:

Lead the way,

I wish to speak to Aveline
