lyrics

It calls out to me, my god forsaken need.
A thousand hungry voices now tell me to feed.
Under the moon so bright it feels like day but it is night.
The passenger grips, and holds me tight.

Clawing at my back, constantly gnawing at my brain.
This glorious feeling I could never replace.
Humanity I lack for I know only pain, but you’ll never see my true face.

These people and these places, are they camouflage at best?
Can they help me tame these demons and lay them down to rest?
An unfamiliar feeling.
A warmth I’ve never known.
To be like one of you is just like selling my darkened soul.

I have fooled you all with comfort and comradery.
Underneath the mask lies emotionless sociopathy.

Longing for normalcy.

Darkness controlling my every move.
I live a lie as I kill the truth.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place to unleash this rage.
Forbidden urges will control my endeavors.
Prowling the night I am the dark defender.

Suffering this internal struggle.
Must I abide to humanities laws?
My appetite is too quick to sustain morality.
My lustful cravings cannot restrain my duality.

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

Tell me, what do you see?
A fucking monster dwells inside of me.
True as the blood that runs through these veins.
I am terror, I am merciless, but am I insane?

My secret is safe with no one.
My sins will go unknown.
I am destined to do this forever.
In malevolence I must dwell alone.
I justify my vicious actions.
I rid the world of those just like me.
I try to life and love like you.
But I only want to see you bleed.

But I only want to see you bleed!

From comradery, to a casualty.
Anyone too close to me will soon cease to be.
I’ve waited patiently, the time has come to feed the need.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place to unleash this rage.
Forbidden urges will control my endeavors.
I lose control to it, the passenger of sin.

Born in blood, discovered in pain.
I have found a place in this world of decay.
Death incarnate, to my hand you’ll surrender.
I’m in control.
The dark defender.
