Jester's Funeral - The Assassin lyrics

music by Stefan Schmidt, Heiko Höhn, Bastian Emig, lyrics by Stefan Schmidt & Heiko Höhn

A hail of blows, and one of those wipes out a god forsaken name. Can't hear his cries, I can't look into his eyes, my father's son, my mother's blame...

My darkest hour, scared by my power, this kind of life is a kind of hell. No way to choose, I'll always lose, I'm the Assassin I know so well.

I am better, listen to them, they told me when I was young. I am better, listen to them, I want to stay strong.

I am the Assassin, keep me away from the light, cover my pain inside, keep me away from the light, I am my only friend beside.

Blood on my hand, can't understand, what is the power that makes me kill? I'm on the run, and I can't escape from what I've done. Killed by my hand against my will...

No decision, my only mission is to deny my morality. It was meant, from heaven sent: I'm the Assassin for all eternity.
