Scale the walls of hopelessness Lungs breath blackened tar Abusive instinct takes control No more hope left under darkened star
Staring down a bottomless pit
No escape, no way out The only way through is down Cannot speak, cannot move Inarticulate, we drown Failure's asexual breed Life of swine become disease Better and twisted inside Worship my god of fear
Face the facts, everything dies in the end
Always brave on the outside Smiling in the face of despair Blood courses through constricted veins Silent screams, gasping for air
Burning blade enters prepared skin Crimson life flows from within Welcoming releasing blood Rivers deep to the desperate sea Flow...
Yet choices made are not reversed Persistence in the face of nothingness Courage to endure despair Survive, revenge, redress Floods of blood wash nothing clean Begin within on the path to redeem Locking back at a beleaguered past Something inside changed
So much time ahead So much that can be done Speaking words in unknown tongues Presaging armageddon's son
Pressure building up inside Something has no give Vanquish all fear, nowhere to hide Become the master, choose to live
I choose to damn well live!
Never more to be trodden down Before noone to kneel
Heart, once frozen, trapped in ice Now boiling molten steel!
Highest self to vindicate All cause of doubt to eradicate Seize control, force mental state Seconds counting down to detonate
Return to those who would oppress The way of advance lies through regress Old enemies made to feel violent caress Pay it all back with interest
At last, it seems, a return to peace Destructive urges finally cease There's still anger, but now it's part of me I'll never die so easily!
