You know the ugly beast
That rears its ugly head?
The one that shows itself in the faintest of glimpses
That controls your heart, makes you see red.

The one you’re afraid will never come out
- No wait – you can’t let it come about
Because all will see, all will know
How your heart sits on Death Row.

With it your future seems hazy
What will happen grows dim
Nothing good lies ahead
In fact, it’s quite grim.

You know that it will hurt your friends
Cause destruction to no end
You can’t contain it, can’t hold back
Strength to fight is what you lack.

You know the ugly beast
That rears its ugly head?
Would it be gone
If I were dead?
