There is a darkness inside me I cannot deny,
As the moonlight casts it's spotlight upon me.
Every crack and crease is brought to bare.
Monstrosity trapped in ribbons and lace,
My scars have always been there.
Out of space and time I find my soul,
Has bathed in oil and swallowed coal.
Blackened edifice made to house contempt,
And echo aches I won't forget.
Forgiven yes my persecutions I may,
Though my feelings been torn away.
So tell me now where do I stand,
Feet slipping down into the sand,
Of time so quickly passed me by.
Making my bed where serpents lie,
Writhe through my bones,
Cast out my shell.
I burn in hell.
