Reflection of the Beast (Live)



Reflection of the Beast

Panic, flows deep, running beneath cold skin

Eyes, freeze open, as knees meet the floor



Slowly, you’re choking, and the air pulls tight

It burns, through your lungs, as you shiver in fright



Say now, what’s wrong?

Why so afraid?



I’ve only just showed you, the scars that you’ve made



Are they not to your liking, now once they’ve healed?

No longer, not bleeding, the flesh which was peeled



Do you wish I had sheltered your mind from this pain?

Or rathered I suffered, alone in vain?



How selfish you are, my dastardly devil

And cruel to be sure, as you watched me wallow



In this filthy mess of a broken cage, you have become fuel for my blackening rage



And no matter the words you use to appease

You will never escape the jaws of this beast



For it feeds on your each and every strain, and drinks like wine, from the depths of your shame



And slowly it grows, stronger and stronger

As it rips through your body in ravenous hunger



Tell me now, as I stare in wonder



What has, will become, of you…most pitiful monger
