Messiah Complex II: A Glouton For Punishment

Greed and guile color my life with aurus rose
Temper my yearning
Abdicate the throne, majesty
Gold topples the crown
Blood festers the ground

Hell on Earth, my blessing and my curse
How did I fail my holy grail? Taper my hunger

(With your compound eyes)
Parasites leeched upon the guilt
(And a call to arms)
Paradise led me down a path to the core

Fail - try - fall - rise
Scars run deep, tormenting me with her reptilian glare
How is she forsaking me, when my devil may care?

(With your compound eyes)
Parasites echo through the walls
(And a call to arms)
Paradise, breathe me in, I'm dead to the world
