Open your eyes and see the world around you

I am being held a slave
I am left alone, day after day

I am your captor
I am your ruler
I am the darkness within

I am being held against my will
Who are you? Please help, I'm drowning

I am not a coward
You are not my slave
I will be the victor
I will set you free

Dissonance in silence
Defiance in absence
I am the dark within

Dissonance in silence
Defiance in absence of guilt
Dissonance in silence in pain
Reliance in mercy and vain

Rob me of my dignity
Take from me my faith
Rape me and assault me now
Bring me to my fate
I will be the one
Watching you from way up high
You will be the first to die

Take her in the back and shove her face through the window, then throw her in a body bag.
I have raped and murdered them all, marks on their faces and scars on their backs.
I am taking beauty out of this world and into the next one, straight into hell.
Her long blonde hair and bloodshot eyes, her curves and tears and pleas for forgiveness.

My life is all a lie (Lie all you want)
I can be all I try (you will never escape)
To cheat death, it's not the end (cheat life, it's not the end)

The darkness inside of me is too much to burden
The light behind my mask is too dim to eat me whole

Silent in darkness, absent in the light
Presence in the light
I am blind to the light beneath the dark within my soul

Open your eyes and see the world around you
Close your filthy mouth and listen to my last breath

I am the dark within
Bring me to my knees
Take me from my faith
Take off my mask and see

I've become a monster
I've become a saint
I was born a martyr
I will die in restraint
