I created the monster
I breathed life into its lungs
I am the one that you should blame
If we cannot overcome
I wasn’t always a madman
I didn’t always spew disdain
But that was years and minds ago
My empty voids now overflow with pain

Give me the torch and I will burn your city down
Swimming in pride, I dare to drown
Chaos is my state of mind tonight
And madness is my lovely bride

The monster bears my fruit
Its fangs are soaked in my contrite
Swiftly it sweeps the hearts of the young
Bringing me their every soul and right
Run as fast as you can
The edge of the earth won’t be so kind
The monster will be waiting there
And it will consume your mind

Give me the torch and I will burn your city down
Swimming in pride, I dare to drown
Chaos is my state of mind tonight
And madness is my lovely bride

Turn me away
Lock me inside
Don’t let me
Ever see the light

Give me the torch and I will burn your city down
Swimming in pride, I dare to drown
Chaos is my state of mind tonight
And madness is my lovely bride

What loneliness is this?
Why does my heart feel such despair?
I jump into the monster’s claws
As I take one last breath of air
