Mouth Of The South – Hollow Veins lyrics

I know this has come back to me
I opened the doors that have led me here
Face to face with the devil
I've been fighting these demons for the last few years
I've grown weary, struck down and worn out
Turn the page once more, I placed myself here
I let them lead me to the slaughter
Step by step into this living hell
I let them slide the noose around my neck
When they chained me I sat still

Dancing with the devil I am plagued with disease
Fill my veins with your blood, spark my pulse into a beat

Purge this poison from my veins, I'm calling them out
Every demon that I've faced, every devil that's held me down
I'll spew you because I'm tired of being warm
And my home is not this storm
I'm through with you, no more darkness, no more shame
Turn on the lights, give them no place to remain
Your hold on me is no longer here

"Have you forgotten that I dwell in the depths of your dark and filthy heart? I did not merely force my way in, I found an open door. I left and came back to discover your hollow veins, so I made my home. I know everything about you, I know everything about you. I know your secrets and the things you do when you think you're alone. I live in the shadows you create, you've made this place into my home"

I let them lead me to the slaughter
Step by step into this living hell
But as I cry out to my Father, my strength begins to swell
Your lies are replaced with the truth
This heart was never mine to give
I may have opened the doors but now I choose to live

Dancing with the devil I've been plagued with disease
You've filled my veins with your blood, sparked my pulse into a beat

Bind the host, shine your light, give them no places to hide
Go to hell, dark passenger, back to where you came from
Go to hell, dark passenger, I stand with heaven as a child of the king
Go to hell.
