"The Asylum" as written by and Martin Hansen Linus Nirbrant....
I almost never die
But when I do
Your earth will shake
Your foundations falter
All breaks down
To a cold and gray mess
No room for life
No place for mirth
Dragged down in the quicksand
Of a stale shattered lie

Force fed by the bleakness
Of your presence
Why can't you die instead of me?
I see no reason to leave you be
I'll tear apart as you tore me

Join me in my asylum
Created only for you and for me
Join me in my asylum
Here sickest things come to be
Our affliction, your creation

The Asylum, where madness reigns

Scorched by the touch of the flames
Scorned by the sound of your voice
It burns like the sun in my eyes
I hide in darkness until the moment comes

I will make sure the time is right
To consecrate
You will be part of my new wing
Enclosed in concrete, you'll be king

Tread the road to the asylum
Here death is all but a lie
Tread the road to the asylum
Which no one leaves alive

Join me in my asylum
Created only for you and for me
Join me in my asylum
Here sickest things come to be
Our affliction, your creation
