In solitude, soul…
Ten thousand nights alone

You claim an eternal soul
Where are you when you watch the box?
When you watch the wall?


Outside your circuitry, nerves crawling out of me
I've seen things you'll never know
Shared a bed in hell, in hatred of myself
Clawed my way back all alone
This is something you could never know
When I see all the shit you do
I can't put enough crime between myself and you
Souls and bodies stain these streets where all my nightmares learned to breathe
Metropolis carved out of bone
What I need I'll take, I've got a lot at stake
I can't mistake your needs for my own


Your heaven would be my hell
Everything I hate most in myself I find embodied in you
My heaven would be your hell
Shows your hate for life itself-death, the only thing you fear more
You have taught me I am alone
Hands pushed in empty pockets, can't keep out the cold
Night spread around like barbed wire, wrapped tight around my soul
Feel the locusts inside me rising to a boil
Hum of the silence rises like a snake crawling down my throat
But your kisses leave tooth marks
Your friendship kills
Your whispers linger inside my head
But I know if I taste your poison I'll never get my fill
Chose my term in solitary, climbing the ranks of humanity
Choices I've made have isolated, but this is my reward
I've been saving while you've spent
I've been sweating while you've slept;
There's going to come a time when I can call your empire
MINE.
