The Zodiac Project: Pisces

        The pen pauses above the page;
        The words flow, the hand hesitates.
        It’s the story of the shadow in the sun,
        A hero born, a villain spawned.
        A good soul humbled from the power within;
        the evil coils, let the battle begin.
        
        There’s someone out there, this I swear;
        A monster lurking, looking darkly in.
        Sending shivers running down my spine;
        All you women run, all you children hide.
        No one knows how this story goes,
        Death will smile on for whom the bell will toll.
        
        I need to run, find a way to save
        Me the martyr, me the saint.
        Giving up hollow, cold, empty faith,
        I just want to be free from the hero’s fate.
        
        Grip of the dagger, blood of the blade;
        Wounds open wide, guts on display.
        The hero has fallen, the villain remains,
        Walking slowly on to the imminent fate.
        The beast-man stumbles, the reaper he has graced.
        There’s no dying scream, just death upon his face.
        
        I need to run, find a way to save
        Me the martyr, me the saint.
        Giving up hollow, cold, empty faith,
        I just want to be free from the hero’s fate.
