Martin Walkyier - A Cautionary Tale lyrics
Faustus begin thine incantations
Take good care to draw thy circle true
By god must you prevail -
For if you fail these
Demons make a meal of you
Your soul shall be their meat -
A kingly feast for them to eat
Beware your future at hand
Alas for thou art dammed
"faustus seek repentance
Abjure this evil art
Cease this wretched wickedness
And cleans thy foolish heart
For the evil that once served you
Has made of you a slave
And transformed your bed of roses'
To a premature grave."
Then in a mighty flash of light
Before thee mephistopheles appears
"i charge thee go and change thy shape
For you fill my soul with fear
Now swift-as-hell back to the fire
Return an old franciscan friar."
"mortal command me while you can
For surely thou art dammed."
"faustus be thou resolute
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/martin-walkyier/-/a-cautionary-tale.html]
In what thou wilst perform
Ignore these righteous idiots -
Their trinity to scorn
For years of depravation you receive eternal life
But fame and wealth and maidens-fair
Are by far the better price."
"temptations all around me
Is there nowhere i can turn?
Hellfire is all about me
Now i know that i shall burn
I face excommunication for the error
Of my ways - to burn in hell for all my days
Bell, book and candle, candle, book, bell
Forwards and backwards to damn me to hell
Jehova i beg thee have mercy on my soul
Be gone foul beast that stands before me
My god! the midnight hour chimes
Oh lord have mercy he comes for me
I haven't got much time
I am awake this is no dream
I cry - but terror takes my scream
And now my future is at hand
Also for i am dammed."
"think for just one moment
And i'm sure that you will see
The moral of this story -
That what shall be must be
He who gives his soul to hell
Must dare to pay the price
He versed in divinity must
Live a noble life -
Or else he is damned!
