Floating on mist
Crept up the caverns of my brain
Received no warning
From nothing to a life code

Walk with me, you'll never leave
Wait to see your spirit free
Tell me how your heart's in need
As I drown you in the sea

Unwinding snares of distrust
Your wrist in my fast grisp
Look me in the eye, I'm clear
This is your time

Face down beneath the waterline
Gazing into the deep

From love to death
In a time span of seconds
Oblivious to regret
Pushed into belief
In liquid cellophane
Gasping for air
Mercy in my eyes
Is the shade of the night

Face down beneath the waterline
Gazing into the deep

The piercing sounds you make
Soaring higher, higher now
And once left in my wake
Your memory's nothing but the scars on me

All over now
Forgotton why I needed this
Standing down
Disappear into the obscure
Resting days
Waiting for the new disease
Biding time
Locked inside insanity

It always burns within
The downward spiral never ends
When driven into sin
Your salvation's found in a sinner's deed

All over now
Forgotton why I needed this
Standing down
Disappear into the obscure
Resting days
Waiting for the new disease
Biding time
Locked inside insanity

Devil guides the way
Tells me what to say
Pours himself inside
Snuffs the final light

Deliverance
Thrown back at me
Laughing at me

Deliverance
Thrown back at me
Deliverance
Laughing at me
