The many lives of a drifting eternal soul

Stand & Deliver

I've been roaming along these roads since the collapse of the civilisation next door

Seeking out my fortune from unwitting passers by

The tools of my trade a knife engraved with my name

Young maidens made to feel the charm of my blade

Young princesses earned the trademark of my name

Countless soldiers ended by the ambush during my night raids

Until the noose wrapped around my neck

And the Kings writ was sent to sentence me from this body to the gallowas below

"though my physical body is no longer what it was

my soul is drifting on looking for a new body to colonise"

I was a knight for the Lord of a shire built on the backs of serfs and slaves of so many colours

Protecting the kingdom with the flag of my honour

Living up to the code of taxation of the meek and policing the streets of unease

When the calls to arms came up in the winter of 1066 to battle I went with my brothers

On the battle field I slain a many brave men

Until the sword came through my sheidl in the rain

And into my heart making me fall to a muddy grave

Heroic was I called by those in the shire who burned my body on the pyre

"though my physical body is no longer what it was

my soul is drifting on looking for a new body to colonise"

I worked down the abyss with men built with black grit

Mining coal to keep industries riches burning bright though poverty was the mistress of my life

My hammer knocking far from sunlight

The echoes of my chisle echoing up to the town above

I heard the shakes before my life was buried beneath the rock and slit

I just a life spent without enough money to do much except work and eat in a rundown shack

Back breaking work for 18 hours no more as now I am buried surrounded by the golden coal whose wealth I never know

though my physical body is no longer what it was

my soul is drifting on looking for a new body to colonise

I am leader of planet system X

governor of the star to the south of Pluto

giving out directives and making laws to benefit all my friends

as the reactor exploded down the southern hemisphere of my planets reactive core

an evacuation order was sent throughout the lands as I watched the nuculear eruption blind my eyes

no longer do I see or breath as I am just a particle in spaces is blackest night

my grave my obliterated ship which will now be dockying in the annuals of all space disasters

now on my soul goes roaming across the universe looking for a new body to colonise

so I may continue this story

my names as many as there are stars in the night sky

never stopping

never leaving

always remaining

always present
