Take me with you
Lead me to where I belong.
Solitude - I've been lost - abandoned for way too long.
Talk to me - the deafening voice of silence kills me.
Hate crawls into my heart - the monster caged inside is angry
The mystical side of me.
The dark side that I'll never let you see.
Creeping up on me - feelings I've got to hide.
Fighting for air - they suffocate inside.
The beast is ugly - claws scratch my core, grind my ribs.
No one got the guts to come and save me from this.
SLAY - TORTURE the stranger who lives within.
KILL - EXECUTE the monster under my skin.
MURDER the dark side of me.
SLAUGHTER the beast - set me free.
I shiver - I inhale the cold air drenched in fear.
I suffer - Unchain me - take me away from here.
My mind is a divided one.
'Confused' - holding a rose in one hand and in the other a gun.
I've been this way for years - but no one really knows.
How it feels to have a monster that feeds on your rage & grows.
That one feeling that I still cannot define.
Chills running up and down my spine.
Sharp pain back between shoulder blades.
Bitterness in my bloodstream!
It poisons every cell - like cancer it invades.
A lonely spirit drifting down the river of denial.
In search of peace of mind - In search of a path of exile.
This journey is endless.
My soul is restless.
The breathing of a brutal monster is draining my soul.
Strength is fading - I'm scared to death- I'm afraid to lose it all.
bathed in blood, blinded by tears.
Praying for my wounds to mend and heal.
I'll run until I can run no more.
Run until my feet are red and burn.
Haunted - by the memories I try to forget.
Tormented - by the voices screaming in my head.
Why live? Why give? - All I do will be down the drain.
Soon, everything will be washed away by acid rain.
I surrender - a truth impossible to bear.
Mourning a part of me but no one seems to care.
A vicious war against the weak.
Bravery awakens and shines through things that look bleak.
A cold knife going through my chest.
And the demon within no longer exists.
Agony expands while the body decays.
SQUEAL! - Covered with blood, I couldn't recognize the face.
Disregard my heart's leaking vein.
Dripping crimson - it's the sweetness of feeling no pain.
It's the sweetness of feeling no regret.
It's the taste of victory that is impossible to forget.
You fancy me mad - MISTAKEN! - I'm fully sane.
If I'd go back in time I'd do the exact same thing over & over AGAIN!
Turning back the hands of time
Won't hold back the dark desires of mine.
