The Art Of Subconscious Illusion

Album: Sounding the Seventh Trumpet (2001)

  • A living nightmare, asleep but still aware
    The endless torture
    The painless pleasure
    I grasp myself
    Trying to regain control
    I experience and learn
    In another faction of my mind

    So confused
    But everything makes perfect sense
    Can't feel the pain
    Emotional pain's so much deadlier
    Lost, you've just been raped
    Pain. Your friends can't help you
    Why won't they help you? Another reality

    This can't be happening
    Why is this happening?
    Who the fuck are you?
    Who the fuck. Are you?
    Trying hard to figure out what's done
    I scramble but now I run
    The images in my head

    All the problems that I've been fed
    Punching slowly my mind can't change the speed
    As my victims bleed
    No matter what I do or how hard I try
    I can't use my abilities
    Use my abilities

    Art of Illusion
    My razor sharp knife's edge, pierces my victim's body
    But I can't take their soul
    Punching through jello, stabbing not killing
    Disappointment, discomfort Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
