Fighting the Past

You're an ancient warrior
Fighting age-old battles
Doing what is right
I'm an all-out fighter
Killing what I need to
They tell me it's not right

Tell me how is all this fair?
How fair?
Tell me why they even care?
Why care?
Tell me if you only dare
Do dare
What the hell is happenning here?

In the past I wasn't
Told I was so evil
Doing what seemed right
In my ancient culture
I was your true hero
Fighting for what's right

Now, I work for Satan
Or so they all tell me
That I do his deeds
All because my life is
Not accepted normal
To our "modern creed"

Tell me how is all this fair?
How fair?
Tell me why they even care?
Why care?
Tell me if you only dare
Do dare
What the hell is happenning here?

Horrid affirmation
Does consume the world now
That I AM what's right
I am not the devil
Nor do I work for him
I'm fighting for what's right

Nearing global pardon
I am feeling better
You know that I'm true
But it falls to pieces
Without any warning
The past I must undo
