Constancy A Father's End

"The Worst Of Evils" is track ten on the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill is still imprisoned in the crystal entrapment, but his anger has turned to sorrow and belittlement. He seems like he is about to give up, but the thought of such things re-ignites his spark, and he decides that he is going to continue to try. He turns his negative emotions into a great strength and breaks free from the prison, then steals away into the tunnels and towards Reflaugh's chambers.

LyricsEdit

O’ how faceless!

How pitiful I’ve become

A soft impersonation of who I am

I’m outnumbered and made to fold

Now an offed and spent reflection has stained the glass


I once dreamed of a bittersweet end

And I’m done correcting most flaws

‘Cause who am I to ever be anything?

I’ve blown through the pages,

And no hope for perfect sight

I’m in denial


But I'm not a coward!

For when I had it all,

I had the courage to let things go...

Yet in the final hour,

I was not good enough

I'd not the strength to push things through


You'd find me face down—alone

The blinding glimmer of the king's crown

Should never have tainted this mind

I'd rather fail than lie again!


But I'm not a coward!

For when I had it all,

I had the courage to let things go...

Yet in the final hour,

I was not good enough

I'd not the strength to push things through


O' I stood with a fist full of anger!

I lashed out and clawed at the door

Your cage could no longer contain me,

For I was feeling that weight lift off

That's me in the front of the chamber!

That’s me who I saw in the glass!

Your cage could no longer contain me!

I was free...

Now to keep that promise I'd made

Windfall called me

To slay any wicked things that stand in my way

Hoping I'd find you in slumber soon

 Trivia Edit

  • The opening tune to this song is based on a song called "What If The Sun Didn't Shine," written by Justin Bonitz in 2002, and is featured as the second track on his first demo album titled "Wild Geece."
  • The name of this track was reused from an old amnaeon tack that has been scrapped. It was first featured on the demo album "Aorta Borealis IV," released in 2013. The final song has no relation to that song other that its title. It is an entirely new song for Hungry Lights.
