My Dear Enemy

It appears you've sunk down
Another level
Its seems you've won a crown
For being a minion
Of the devil

You call me insane
Because I'm not the same
You cast out your hate
Chop off my head at the slate
You been fooled, my dear Shame
Into thinking you own my name
You've been fooled, my dear Agony
Into believing you own me

You had me on my knees
For a while
Had me drowned in the seas
For a while

Call me something
That's not a lie
Speak anything
That doesn't horrify

Tell me a reason
Why I should forgive
Give me one
One reason to live

Do you see me now
I'm not afraid to fight
Let me show you how
I pack a mean bite

They say
Revenge is no way
To punish a sin
They say
Stay away
Revenge can never win

But look up at me here
As I look at you down there
And you tell me
My dear Enemy
Who is wearing the crown
Now
