Compos Mentis – Drained lyrics

Why, oh why, why are you so cruel?
Your vengeful soul is draining my lust
I want to fulfil but am constantly punished
So I ask why, oh why?

I watch the light as it fades into black
Turning day into night
I am filled with the deepest eternal sorrow
For the life that has decayed

You embrace us all, but why? You drain my lust
Is it a game that you play?
Is our existence merely a joke?
Why can't you face our reality?

You took my dreams and drained out the fantasy
You've got my reality

Reminiscence of a lost faith
And I see your soaking wet hands
- Wet from all the blood that you have taken -
As they reach for another innocent

You took my dreams and drained out the fantasy
You've got my reality
