It crawls down deep inside
without a pulse or a will to die
not known to sympathize.
And now it takes what it takes
and let’s the feelings suffocate.
It’s nothing new
it’ll get it’s way.
Another thing that I see
is how it gets inside of me
and tears away my life.
It’s time to love!
It’s time to hate!
It’s coming face to face to desecrate.
No time at all to break away.
Temptation still got a hold on me.
It’s awake even when you sleep.
It breathes without a heartbeat,
making me incomplete.
And now I know what I know.
Expect the demon down below
to surface through my mortal soul.
And now it looks to be
it’s smiling as it’s killing me
day to day,
eye to eye.

His soul lies in the balance, his heart on the razor’s edge of living… or dying. It is in this moment, this very moment, that he is trying so desperately to survive.
