I've fought the villains of the world, and won; My monument in every town will stand. A new and virtuous era, I've begun. But I've regrets no-one will understand. As prophesied, a hero I became: First was I pure; secondly, I fought — In battle gear worked hard to earn my fame, And brought the count of minions down to nought. But now, I find there's nowhere left to turn. The world in need of saving, I have saved. To life that once I lived, I can't return: I still want things that, leaving home, I craved. 'Twere better, had my death been by the sword. These years of peace will bring me no reward.
(The hour was around six in the morning, I think.)
