Hymn For The Shameless

Saw your eyes today
in a memory painted in the sky
You smiled and said to me:
"a love like this can never truly die"

So now the show's over and I've got to disguise the thing I've become
I only wish I could stop laughing!
I grin because the joke is on them this time!
They don't have a clue

Calm consumes me

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed.
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

I am the face of death standing right behind you
Yet you're oblivious to my cold breath on your neck
Is it just too easy?
Am I just too good at this?
I am the chosen one.
I am the end of all and now you are mine!

Calm consumes me

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have
Does that make me a killer?

Saw your eyes today
in a memory painted in the sky
You smiled and said to me:
"a love like this can never truly die"

Let's just say you're right and the nightmare ends
we wake up side by side
What makes you think that I would let you live?
I've really lost my mind

Behold, for I am the will of the reaper!
Beg for the mercy of your worthless angels!

As relief washes over me, calm consumes me

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
I shut my eyes and once again the pleasure strangles me
I taste the tears of sweet indulgence, pain and fantasy
Oh, the visions inside my head
The emptiness will haunt you

(I immerse myself in sick reflection)
Sanity is slowly slipping from my hands now
I'm standing closer to the edge than I should be allowed
Oh, what little regret I have.?
Does that make me a killer
