    darkness listens to you child
    but voices muffle their whispering
    don't let them deceive your worried head
    we all fall down, belong to the king

    the mask is just a force-field
    your empathy will paralyze the blight
    the reflection that you are seeing
    is your love, yourself, you're alive

    darkness is consuming but,
    it will help you through the end
    so don't deny your suffering
    let the suffering lend a hand

    he pays you with his crying
    his tears fall upon your eyes
    blind daughter, blissful life
    don't you dare lie to me
    it's his revenge you see

    men in black coats in the kitchen
    shiny spoons digging into dessert
    at the wake of the funeral
    you watch them laugh play in the earth

    have you awoken little child?
    from this nightly sleep you have called
    into wet dreams of disaster
    can you fight the red blood?

    trigger happy ghetto shroud
    she smiles on her phentermine pills
    germs pollute the halls of the proud
    someone's off on a delusional spill

    and she's shaking, pounding
    at the dust the smoke the paradise
    she chose her place to rot inside
    and it came with no such price

    she just left herself there
    standing in an echoy room
    and when you wanted an apology
    instead you were met with her heart of poison

    Give me a good reason to live
    Give me a good reason not to sell myself short!
    You have taken it all before I learned to hoard
    My treasures, my self, my own worth.

    When he softens my skin within
    The bleached pale corpse's asylum
    Perhaps than he may learn to feel
    feel the one, my only...perception.
