Set me free, let me be, whatever I needed to be
If that means the devil in me, what I couldn’t see
The monster within, lurking and grunting, at a snail's pace
And drinking my soul, till it vanishes without a trace.
The shadow of fear is looming large, of an evil reign
Growing like a poisonous dream in my mind and brain
A realm of dead and ugly to rule, and be one of them
To slay the good and better, to keep ahead of the game
Sitting in dark, with a dark desire, in my dark heart
Desire to set ablaze this heaven and earth
And to stand on the pile of ashes and whatever left
Laughing and mocking those promises never kept.
I am growing a beast, in me, as me, for me
So cut me open, cut me through, cut me free
Only way to stop me reaching for Lucifer’s crown
So bring it on, thunder and lightning and burn me down.
