Playground is set for the ones to fade away
Without hope they crawl into their holes
This ruptured soil is all too fragile
To cover so they will suffer
Knock, knock, knock!
The reaper is at the door
Disguised in mortal form, or just an ordinary psycho
One moment smiling faces everywhere
Next moment is about to be in history

The horror begins
Nightmare in dreams
Where the fuck is your God now?
Let them die

Inside my mind there is no place to comprehend this bitterness of yours
It's not sane just blood in vain
Is this your way to save them from this morbid world?
Being the reaper, collect the bones

Who are you to decide?
Their story, their lives
Taken away by you

My only question is why?
The candles were smothered by vitriol
I'm too blind to see
From behind this anger rising
You are nothing but dust to me
And to dust you shall return
I can see only maggots crawling on the ground
Rotten maggots made of human flesh

This knife will set you free
The overwhelming urge inside of me
Have I lost my control?

The blood of the innocent stained your shadow
The caskets were buried deep in the cemetery of your crimes
Flood of tears bruised by sorrow
Drowns every mourning soul
There is no way out for them
The cold embrace strengthens the pain
