I had a friend

 

Bound by being the same

 

But we had our differences

 

We were our own selves

 

 

 

United in Evil

 

But that's all we knew

 

Never really trusting each other

 

Never showing our tell

 

 

 

We both had a goal

 

Always strived for the best

 

Always wanting more

 

Forever expanding our riches

 

 

 

We made our own friends

 

To only further our plans

 

To gain more support

 

To carve out more niches

 

 

 

But when the time came

 

To step on each other

 

'both reached for the scepter

 

To sit on our throne

 

 

 

To bicker like children

 

Not knowing to reason

 

There is only one way

 

To trial by stone

 

 

 

It's not our fault

 

It's  just the half we were given

 

To change us would be

 

To take the pricks from a thistle

 

 

 

We were so arrogant

 

We thought we were gods

 

We wanted it all

 

So we broke the Dark Crystal
