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!
