[Feat. Cristina Scabbia & Mats Leven]

Bound to your side and trapped in silence
Just a possession
Is this sex or only violence
That feeds your obsession

You send me to a broken state
Where I can take the pain just long enough
Then I am numb - then I just disappear

So go on infect me
Go on and scare me to death
Tell me I asked for it
Tell me I'll never forget
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love

Does it feel good to deny
Hurt me with nothing
Some sort of sick satisfaction
You Get from mindfucking

Stripped down to my naked core
The darkest corners of my mind are yours
That's where you live
That's where you breathe

So go on infect me
Go on and scare me to death
Dare me to leave you
Tell me I'll never forget
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love

Without any faith
Without any light
Condemn me to live
Condemn me to lie
Inside I am dead

So go on infect me
Go on and scare me to death
I'll be the victim
You'll be the voice in my head
You could give me anything but love
Anything but love

    It Is. It's About A Woman Being Sexually Abused And Used By The One Who Loved Her. But, Turns Out He Changed And Became Something Awful.

    I love this song, I think its about an abusive marriage where the woman is raped and the man is sinister and makes it clear to her that she's his object and somehow he can't love her but can only use her. Then the woman has gotten used and basically is like "oh yeah no love for me here,whatever go ahead do your thing." The lyrics are raw and dark which makes the song a thought provoker.I love it.

    I'm thinking that the abuse is there, but I reckon that she can't cope with the fact that she is totally in love with her sexually exploitive parter who just doesn't love her back. Sad.
