Lyrics: Michael Joseph Murano

Lamentation of a Slave

In the steely darkness that devour

The heart of man and his soul

In the darkness of mines so deep

A slave's life is cruel and cheap

 

Who will come, who will deliver

This slave from a cruel slavery?

Who will rise, who will sunder

The shackles of this tyranny

 

Then came the day when I stood free

Rejoicing in the land from sea to sea

I beheld the beauty of a rising world

When I flew in the skies wings unfurled

 

Wings of steel now hound me

A voice, I feel, now binds me

Hounding taunting tempting

 

Who will come, who will deliver

This slave from a cruel slavery?

Who will rise, who will sunder

The shackles of this tyranny?

 

My face and the land are foreign to my sight

I lay awake in the depth of the night

My hand never departs from my blade

Alone, awake, cold and afraid

 

Who will come, who will deliver?

This slave from a cruel slavery

Who will rise, who will sunder

The shackles of this tyranny?
