My own demons
Rip through the night
Hear their cold screams
I fight my chosen fate
Twisted scriptures
From the mind state
Of a lost life
Drifting on far away
Serene visions
Of the new world
Where all people
Do not fight for their cause
So much hatred
For one person
I don’t worry
I’ll be gone soon enough
Cut me open
See my true thoughts
The story lines
Of what you didn’t know
The new chapter
Long since written
Here's the story
Deep inside books of blood

If I am the cause of your loss
You can fade away forever
Now that all the pain subsided
I find myself spiraling down
Children gather so their killer
Cannot take them to a better place

I can’t deny
All the shit you put me through

    General CommentTaken from their webiste []. This is what Jack [their lyricist / vocalist] said about this song, considering he wrote it:

    "Books of Blood: I got the idea for the name from a Clive Barker collection of short stories of the same name. And inside their was a quote that interested me, it said “Everybody is a Book of Blood, wherever we’re opened, we’re red.” So basically if you’re an avid fan of the band or got bored and read the lyrics section, you’ll notice references to books in the song (the new chapter, long since written…the storylines…twisted scriptures, etc.) This is definitely a fun song to play and people react very violently when this song is played, Advent Wrath has seen many a pit start because of this song."
