Into the abyss I'll fall the eye of Horus
Into the eyes of the night watching me go
Green is the cat's eye that glows in this temple
Enter the risen Osiris risen again

Tell me, why I had to be a powerslave?
I don't wanna die, I'm a God, why can't I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste
And in my last hour, I'm a slave to the power of death

When I was living this lie, fear was my game
People would worship and fall drop to their knees
So bring me the blood and red wine for the one to succeed me
For he is a man and a God and he will die too

Tell me, why I had to be a powerslave?
I don't wanna die, I'm a God, why can't I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste
And in my last hour, I'm a slave to the power of death

Now I am cold, but a ghost lives in my veins
Silent the terror that reigned marbled in stone
A shell of a man God preserved a thousand ages
But open the gates of my Hell and I'll strike from the grave

Tell me, why I had to be a powerslave?
I don't wanna die, I'm a God, why can't I live on?
When the life giver dies, all around is laid to waste
And in my last hour, I'm a slave to the power of death
Slave to the power of death
Slave to the power of death
