Exiled From Eden — Epistle For The Emperor lyrics

I met a man once.
He told me how the world works,
Held my hand as I took the steps,
First for my kind.

"Worry not, my son",
I was assured,
"Doubt will clear in time.
Your faith will be confirmed."

Emperor of Heaven's kin,
Let me leave,
Ain't yours to keep.
Emperor of Heaven's kin,
My soul awaits me.

His path was not mine.
I grew out of paradise.
Regardless of love from yonder,
I chose otherwise.

"Don't hold me back!"
I made a claim,
"My live's still intact.
Future's mine to make."
