Redemption is all I want—
Absolve me of all my sins;
I’m a sinner,
But I never wanted to be.

Don’t make me rot in hell;
Earth is worse enough.
I’ll bleed until my last drop of blood;
I’ll burn in the holy pyre.

I was not born a demon;
You have made me one.
But I’m not dead yet;
The true me is still alive.

I can change,
And there is still time.
Let the path light up for me;
And the stars shine.
