The Animal

  • I can feel the animal inside
    My resolve is weakening
    Pounding on the doors of my mind
    Its nearly overpowering
    I cannot begin to describe
    The hunger that I feel again
    Run if you intend to survive
    For the beast is coming to life

    Taking more than a glimmer of this tainted moonlight
    Death approaches on this night

    For the animals soul is mine
    We will be completed right before your eyes
    I have no control this time
    And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

    I can feel the calling again
    The primal need is filling me
    Changes are about to begin
    And now my blood is boiling
    I can see the fear in your eyes
    But you cant bring yourself to scream
    Time to shed the mortal disguise
    The beast is coming to life
    Taking more than a glimmer of this tainted moonlight
    Death approaches on this night

    For the animals soul is mine
    We will be completed right before your eyes
    I have no control this time
    And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

    We begin the hunt tonight
    Til the power courses the creatures take flight
    When the kill is close and I will be satisfied
    For the smell of fear tonight
    Wakes an ancient lust that will not be denied
    You're mine

    For the animals soul is mine
    We will be completed right before your eyes
    I have no control this time
    And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight

    For the animals soul is mine
    And the world around will never hear your cries
    An unholy crime
    And now we both shall dine in Hell tonight Writer/s: DAN DONEGAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, MICHAEL WENGREN, MIKE WENGREN
