As Paradise Falls – The Demon Within lyrics

Do you feel that presence flowing over you?
Like a chilling wave of terror,
There's nothing you can do,
To escape that masquerade,
You portray behind the veil of your souls decay,

When will you see,
That this life you live is nothing but a lie,
And something evil lurks beneath the surface,
Of your skin?

You're only lying to yourself,
Attempting to believe a facade,
To cover up what you are,
But I know what is in your head,
And I know these screams are deafening,

What do you think of when you hear them scream your name,
Do you sit back quietly hoping they will abstain?
Or do you shout back in an attempt,
To go against the grain?

We were born as something pure,
We've evolved into the fucking damned,

Do you actually believe that evil lies only in dreams,
Do you actually believe that evil lies only in dreams,
Do you actually believe that evil lies only in dreams,
Do you actually believe that evil lies all in your dreams,

What have I become?
Something twisted and contorted,
I never that this would be the outcome of my actions,
Each one slowly is eating away at my conscience.

I am,
The abomination,
I have let myself create.

Welling up inside my chest,
A feeling that will never rest,
I feel the hatred and the rage,
Trapped inside this fucking cage,
And if I should become the damned,
Let the wretched fear my hand,
I've let this demon inside my mind,
This world will fear me in due time.

Welling up inside my chest,
A feeling that will never rest,
I feel the hatred and the rage,
Trapped inside this fucking cage,
And if I should become the damned,
Let the wretched fear my hand,
I've let this demon inside my mind,
This world will fear me in due time.
