Here's the tune: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXt-2BmgVbA

And here are the words:

Last year I was a happy man
Young, strong, and without fear,
And then I felt my father's hands.
Some knowledge comes too dear.

I hungered, thirsted, all unseen,
My friends don't know I'm damned.
My soul took wing, its edges keen,
And I alone now stand.

ETA: the name of the song is "Refined Fire," and the last line has been messed with so as to increase the ambiguity.

Thanks! I changed the last line. "Alone" works so much better. The perils of posting immediately after the Muse thwaps you on the head, instead of after you've thought about it some.

Not so much "I will walk through the fire" as "I have walked through the fire"...

I smell Spam, of the hyperlinked-smiley variety. (Original spam URL not quoted, for tolerably obvious reasons.)

My fandom is proficient at finding hidden links.
