My Prison

I am smart, cunning and devious

Prepared to fool you

Creating the illusion you want to see

To satisfy your selfish needs

I am seeking revenge for my past

To get rid of the pain I've had for

Years and years and years

Knowing it may never leave

I am filled with anger, hate and envy

Seeing her with him

But I harden myself from emotion

So I can get what I came for

I am the sailor Edmond Dantes

The Italian sailor Sinbad

The priest Abbé Busoni

The English nobleman Lord Wilmore

I am the Count of Monte Cristo
