Is this a ghost we find before our eyes tonight
Ears can catch the voice they recognize
Kodos can still be heard, the executioner
He still recites his lines

4,000 dead on Tarsus 4
Tonight will justice be restored?

Is this a ghost tonight, a phantom we invite
Into our lives to terrorize
Authorities they close the case that 20 years defy
A body burned, they could not recognize

4,000 dead on Tarsus 4
Tonight will justice be restored?

The eyes that recognize, recall the face were only nine
But most of those eyes have now been forcibly shut tight
And their vision did compel, a wraith that could fulfill
A determined haunting vengeance on the nine to kill

History’s made its judgement then, Anton Karidian
A  phantom guise and twenty years of  flight
And at the curtain rise, a haunt stands under lights
Are  you forcing  a reprise?

4,000 dead on Tarsus 4
Tonight will justice be restored?

“So that some would live, you knew some would have to die”
A colony where half the population lost their lives
The spooks of the past, they still make us hold our breath
But Everywhere you go,  you are still pursued by death

Who’s gonna die tonight?
You’re gonna die tonight
Because there’s only two of nine

4,000 dead on Tarsus 4
Tonight will justice be restored?

Daughter, Daughter I was a soldier
Things had to be done
Murder, flight, suicide, and madness
I never wanted my blood on your hands
No, child don’t
