With these eyes I see into your soul.

I'm in the doorway of hell and it's time to pay the toll.

With fire all around,

I tried to cry, I tried to scream but I couldn't make a sound.

I loved you and this is what I got.

Now in the prison I created I sit and rot.

As my heart beats it breaks.

I feel the fangs of a thousand snakes.

You hurt me, yet at times you're the only thing that keeps me going.

I can't deny the way I feel for you is still growing.

You're like the drug I just can't quit even though it's killing me.

You're the one I think about, you're the one I think I need.

In fire birds are the only ones able to flee.

Help me fly, set me free.
