Buzzing, constantly buzzing, all around me
The hornet has always been there, stalking me without mercy
Never did the beast tire in its torturous efforts

Buzzing, constantly buzzing, all around me
Its haunting energy never failing to drive fear into my body
Making my legs go num, stomach turn over, and heart even skip a beat

Buzzing, constantly buzzing, all around me
So loud does the hornet buzz, that it blocks out all noise
Making me suffocate as I starve for the music of life

Buzzing, constantly buzzing, all around me
Why does the hornet not sting me? Why?!
No amount of pain can be worth this harmonic torment!

Buzzing, constantly buzzing, all around me
As its buzz increases, the hornet dives in an attack
Finally granting my suicidal wish…

Yet, what I feel is neither pain nor the cold sense of death
But a reliving peaceful quiet, as the hornet freefalls to the floor
Its wings no longer buzzing, its mind no longer thinking of sadistic acts
The body of the brute smashes into the floor
Its bone shattering noise being masked by the birds’ song…
And the large world around them
