The Trial
The East receives my songs, some praise, some curse 
To each of them my gratitude I bear 
For I’ve avenged the blood of each slain woman 
and haven offered her who is in fear. 
Woman’s rebellious heart I have supported 
ready to pay the prize - content to die 
if love should slay me, for I am love’s champion 
and if I ceased, then I would not be I.

  1. The Trial

    The East receives my songs, some praise, some curse 

    To each of them my gratitude I bear 

    For I’ve avenged the blood of each slain woman 

    and haven offered her who is in fear. 

    Woman’s rebellious heart I have supported 

    ready to pay the prize - content to die 

    if love should slay me, for I am love’s champion 

    and if I ceased, then I would not be I.
