Building up walls to defend
Your weak and twisted ego
You mask yourself
You dress your skin with needles

Up to avoid
The nightmares of reality
A shield you built with
Your own lies and guilt

The scars you earned
Were all just made by shame
A shadow's been cast
Upon your wicked name

The burden you carry
Will not be an excuse
The flesh may lie
But your eyes speak the truth

Terror - Through the ashes made by time
Worthless - From yourself you cannot hide
Murder - Of your personality
Leashed - Resignate to misanthropy

And through your misty shroud
I can see stains of pain
Your armor starts to crumble
As you dig your own grave

The blood running through your
Veins means you are the
Same the ones you contempt

You catch same air to
Breath, you're afraid to
Live like a mortal being

But try not to
Forget in your time of
Dying that you are noone

You live the way they
Live and you're gonna
Die just like all of them die

Inside the scope of death
The veil is torn apart
Your countenance, so grey
I hear your spiteful lies

A speech of loss
Has been urged by hypocrisy
The fires of ignorance
Will light up your disease

Throughout this war
Veiled in hollow cries
You're coiled in black
The halo breaks in half

The leashes on wrists revealed
In a blackened sight
So torn and shattered by
Wrath, the time has nigh

Words Said - They are sharper than a blade
Misled - To a path that leads to hate
Anguish - Shatters your reality
Mourning - Start to inearth all your dreams

And through your misty shroud
i Can see stains of pain
Your armor starts to crumble
as dig your own grave
