  • Ooh

    Two, three, four

    Helpless, my eyes are bleeding from the fear that's inside
    You sealed your demise when you took what was mine
    Don't try and stop me from avenging this world
    No voice to be heard

    Waking the Demon
    Where'd you run to?
    Walking in shadows
    Watch the blood flow

    There's not much longer so don't try and fight
    Your body's weakening, walk to the light
    All those painful times, so alone, so ashamed
    Well I'm not coming back, there's nothing to gain

    Caution, there's just no limits to the boundaries you push
    I've warned you but still you just fuck with my mind
    There's no escape from this rage that I feel
    Nothing is real

    Waking the Demon
    Where'd you run to?
    Walking in shadows
    Watch the blood flow

    There's not much longer, so don't try and fight
    Your body's weakening, walk to the light
    All those painful times, so alone, so ashamed
    I'm not coming back, there's nothing to gain

    Breathe for me
    Don't wake me from this slumber
    Stay with me
    Possession taking over

    Breathe for me
    Don't wake me from this slumber
    Stay with me
    Possession taking over

    Whoa
    Tread

    Breathe for me
    Don't wake me from this slumber
    Stay with me
    Possession taking over

    Breathe for me
    Don't wake me from this slumber
    Stay with me
    Possession taking over
