What Have I Done?

As sung by Vader, on his redemption

What have I done?

Oh Master, what have I done?

Become a Sith in the night,

Become just one of the scum?

And have I fallen so far,

And is the hour so late

That nothing remains but the cry of my hate,

The cries in the dark that nobody hears,

Here where I stand at the turning of the years?

If there's another way to go

I missed it twenty long years ago

My life was a war with love for no other

You took me away and they slaughtered my mother

When they chained her and left her for dead

Without even a mouthful of bread

Yet why did I allow my son

To touch my heart and teach me love?

He came to me – why did he bother?

He gave me his trust

He called me "Father"

My life he claims for goodness now

Can such things be?

For I had come to hate the world

This world that turned to hating me

Take an eye for an eye!

Turn your heart into stone!

This is what I have lived for!

This is what I have known!

One word from him and I'd be back

Beneath the lash, upon the rack

Instead he offers me my freedom

I feel my shame inside me like a knife

He told me that I have a soul,

How does he know?

What spirit comes to move my life?

Is there another way to go?

I am reaching, but I fall

And the night is closing in

And I stare into the void

To the whirlpool of my sin

I'll escape now from the world

From the world of Darth Vader

Darth Vader is nothing now

My name is Anakin!
