Life must always end

First lesson of the necromancer

Spirits wander aimlessly

After seeing the face of death

Second lesson of the necromancer

They do not move on

They cannot find peace

Third lesson of the necromancer

Death is to be feared

It is the end of all

Fourth lesson of the necromancer

Spirits must be destroyed

They cannot remain

Fifth lesson of necromancer

But when the first lesson comes to pass

My brethren do not see

The sweet face of death

They see the cruel face of fear

And forget anything and everything they knew

I do not fear it

I accept my end

So when I die

I shall not fear

But join the spirits

Who found peace

While my brethren

Haunt the world

Fear is cruel

Death is sweet

There is nothing to fear but fear itself
