  • See the dogs come running
    Smelling blood now
    To an open sore
    On a parasite
    Countless hearts have fallen
    Hard to number
    Damnation's whore
    Is looking for a victim tonight
    With an angry soul
    And a wicked design
    Your will cannot endure
    And your heart is torn away

    I was caught up in the moment
    You were alone and
    You seemed to harness the light
    Even though I felt cold inside
    When you told me it would be alright
    I had given up control and
    I didn't focus hard enough to see
    The warning signs
    Your heart is serpentine

    Damn what I'm becoming
    One of them now
    Just an opened door
    On an endless night
    Dark desire burning
    In my blood now
    How can I be sure?
    I don't know if I'll be able to fight
    With a tortured soul
    And an honest design
    My will cannot endure
    If my heart is torn away

    I was caught up in the moment
    You were alone and
    You seemed to harness the light
    Even though I felt cold inside
    When you told me it would be alright
    I had given up control and
    I didn't focus hard enough to see
    The warning signs
    Your heart is serpentine

    Now that I've been torn apart
    Will there be an end to this?
    Will there finally be release?
    Will I finally rest in peace?
    I'm determined to believe
    My prayers will be received
    With a tortured soul
    And an honest design
    My will cannot endure
    As my heart is torn away

    I was caught up in the moment
    You were alone and
    You seemed to harness the light
    Even though I felt cold inside
    When you told me it would be alright
    I had given up control and
    I didn't focus hard enough to see
    The warning signs
    Your heart is serpentine

    The warning signs
    Your heart is serpentine
    Evil personified
    Your heart is serpentine Writer/s: DAN DONEGAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, MICHAEL WENGREN, MIKE WENGREN
