I have known him all my life, and as friends go he has been my best.
As boys we talked and laughed,
And ran under the eyes of the endless sun.
But he has been poisoned against me.
Not by words, not by deed, but by a vile liquid that turns man to beast.
I do not recognize him,
I do not know him.
He descends into the darkness where only despair and misery awaits.
He wants me to follow...
I am resolved, no matter what this mass of flesh says to me, he is not my friend.
My friends was murdered and replaced by this shadow.
I must now turn my back,
And walk away...
