For the Good of Mankind - lyrics

playlist Playlist
The years have passed,
perhaps twoscore,
since the young man I recall returned from war.
I was in love
and to be married,
but the beast of the night had given my bride his deadly bite.
I made a solemn wow in my dismay
to find this devil in hope I might repay
this creature for his deadly legacy,
the evil wedding gift he gave to me.
Now, at last is my chance
to repay him in kind for the years I have suffered,
when this beast I will find.
With belief in my heart
and justice in mind,
I set out on my quest
for the good of mankind.
His kind would never feel regret.
He finds it easy to forget the lives he claims.
He takes soul after soul,
but never pays for his crime.
I’ll take a life for a life
and in Hell he will suffer.
Death has caught him this time.
And so to Hell I will consign
this damn beast of the undead,
revenge is mine!
He’s the Devil’s incarnation,
but the damned of the night
are vanquished by our God’s almighty light.
The prince of darkness has become my prey.
The rogue I’ve hunted reveals himself today.
For good I swore his evil reign would end,
as into Hell once more he will descend!
Now, at last is my chance
to repay him in kind for the years I have suffered,
when this beast I will find.
With belief in my heart
and justice in mind,
I set out on my quest
for the good of mankind!
