Welcome to a place where cruelty's a plague Selfishness and greed infect the human race The leopard waits and attacks from the back But your neighbors... Your neighbors do it to your face
Peace is just a dream in this hatred fueled nightmare There's always something picking at your scabs to never let you heal Throw rocks into a crowd and ask me if I care I assure you that the hatred is real
Why stand for change You know you stand alone A target in the crowd Or violent drone Ignorance is bliss A life without...
Waiting out the weeks in seclusion while emptiness touches my soul With the softness of velvet and the color of coal Now alone and embracing my imagination, I erupt with primal growls Establishing a hierarchy through domination and unrelenting howls
How could I let the monster lay so dormant ...my most favorited friend Time to wake the beast horned in adornment And ride its wings to the end Like the old ones, it slept beyond the reach of death But now I call and watch the creature take a giant breath
At night I stand behind you when nobody else will With a firm hand on your shoulder Sending whispers which fall upon your ear I speak with the persuasiveness that one would expect I am the hand which holds the razor aching for your neck And still... nothing will ever hold you so dear

It's like a shadow following It's the footsteps I have left behind It's a tail shapeless danger Hunting with a...
In the cemetery is where I lay Breathing cold when the mourning crowd has gone I'm am the rust I am the Midnights chill approaching fast Kissing goodnight to the day
As frost creeps over the headstones I am the ravens call I am loyal I am dead Is anyone there at all?

She sings my overture in a note only I can hear With words as sweet as rancid venomous kisses to my ear Drowning out the sunlit world, influences I might attune And drag me down to the blackest dungeon to the coldest of dark rooms
Wetness is but foreplay for The dripping nightmares that breach my dreams With my slumbering creatures she idly waits In funeral garbs, for me
With blooming orchids of blood soaked thorn she spreads her canopy wings Her darkness blocks the buried sun from cleansing thee unclean
