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

  1. A forceful piece that seems to ooze anger and shock in places. Well done for the audio attempt :)
