"Incubus" as written by and Douglas J Mccarthy Alan Wilder....
Every time I think I'm gonna wake up
Back in the jungle
Every minute I stay in this room
I get weaker
Each time I looked around
The walls moved in a little tighter

I've never seen a man so broken up
Ripped apart
They say my name is death
I've never seen a man so broken up
Ripped apart
But I'm alive, I am alive
I've never seen a man so broken up
Ripped apart
I am born ten thousand times
I've never seen a man so broken up
Ripped apart
Ten thousand ways, I'm alive I am the shadow
I am the evening come
I am your greatest fear
Your greatest love

Born in ten thousand ways
For each and every day
I am alive

I am the victim of lying morality
And so, I am beyond caring
I am born ten thousand times
In ten thousand ways
My head swims in spoiled mothers milk
I am too alive
There are too many of me,
Too many to kill
They're in my head
They know my name
My name is death but I am alive,
I am alive

    General CommentJust incase no-one knows, the lyrics are heavily lifted from "Apocalypse Now", with the opening being Martin Sheens character at the beginning, and the latter bit being the monologue Brando gives towards the end.

    Note: How can music be lyrically poor? It's music.
    Seems a rather pointless addition to this song.

    General Commentthis song means quite abit to me i suffered from anxiety for two years after a load of shit happened and fear controlled my life for two years so i can really relate this song. To me its definely about getting over fear realising that the only person that can help you is you're self and taking youre life back and becoming content with who you are
