So now you try, but the blade is primed to just cut you down again
To no avail, this fix divine was wrought to do you in

Seemingly endless, beckoning debt
Vacant and nameless, where is the end?
Aching just to endure again sweet loss
Able again to feel
This is real

Just breathe
Suffer again
Look back
Stand in the wake and breathe
Wait for the end
Fight back
This isn't over

One single touch will further crush your corrupted state of mind
You carve the way for regret to take you further down the line

This isn't over

    Addiction can be a killer — to our spiritual lives, emotional lives, mental wellbeing, relationships, and our physical lives as well. This song is meant as an encouraging word for people under the burden of addiction, whether that be drugs, alcohol, pornography, or just a habitual misuse of free will. The song offers an alternative to giving up and letting the addiction take over. The lyrics urge the afflicted to fight back, even when you feel like you’re already too far-gone.

    "You hear, O Lord, the desire of the afflicted; you encourage them, and you listen to their cry…" - Psalm 10:17

    General CommentI just want to start by sayign I am deeply in love with this song in both lyricism and musically. In my opinion it is saying that there will always be pain in life, but as long as you feel that pain you are still alive. You can't give up just because things don't go the way you want them to...
    Not to say all the failures won't get to you, creating a "corrupted state of mind" in which one single thing could send you over the edge...

    beautifully written, I expect nothing less from demon hunter.
