For the pleasure I got so wicked obscene
I paid with my life I've been so naive.
I crave you more I'm never full
You make me suffer I will die alone.

Shaking to bits, stepping aside
Locking away the rational side.
Shaking to bits, stepping aside
No longer human, I'm empty inside.

This is your addiction, bitter sweet life conviction
Enslave yourself to keep it well fed, dependence makes you wish you were dead.
Pain controlled seduction, Instruments of self destruction
Enslave yourself to keep it well fed, the one that makes you wish you were dead.

It makes you euphoric so warm and feel so calm
The heart is left frozen and doesn't respond.
In my mirror of memories I lost who I used to be
Eyes bruised and blackened from the suffer they've seen.
