Verse 1:

Truth in an empty chamber
Piercing your heart to ember
Fear in crimson tears
Feeding my ambition
I will never be the same
blurring thoughts that fuel my rage
Painted in a canvas stained with age...

Verse 2:

The sands of time have been so harsh to me
I can not function, swallowed in seclusion
Descend from my throne of innocence
There is nothing left to chance
They will find their hope in death…


The hand of man has come
To free me from this prison I call home
Change words to action now, and damn it all

Chorus 1:

I burn it down
Falling asunder all around
The smell of scorching flesh pleases me


Infernal flames now rise
To meet their unforeseen demise
My power will make their world crumble…

Everyone is not to blame
Not any person is the same
But now it's too late, so damn it all


The smoke had cleared
My mind was clouded still
Regretful actions made
Sanity has been erased
Canvas stained by septic age...

Chorus 2:

I’m yearning now
To pick up the pieces on the ground
The final outcome did not meet my intended result
Everyone was not to blame
I am the one who bears the blame
Be careful what you wish for
(be careful what you wish for) - [grunt]
