Lyrics
Curse the dark and evil day that ever I was born
Curse my mother's loving care that made me safe from harm
Curse the day I grew to be a man and learned to love
Curse the love that made me learn to hate all men
Curse the day that I became what I was born to be
Curse all happy men on earth who were not cursed like me

Take an eye for an eye they say
But an eye for an eye won't pay
All that's due
All that's due to a man with nothing left but hate.

Let the sun shine upon the sins of men
Let the sun shine upon my dead long stray
Let the stars go by in the black night sky
It's a world of darkness night and day for me

Curse the day that I was born into the world I know
Curse the day that I became what I was born to be
Curse all happy men on earth who were not cursed like me
