Demon


Inside this broken body
A splintered soul is inside me
Screaming in agony and pain
Escaping torment is vain
I look in the mirror at my face
I see only a hopeless case
The demon inside will never sleep
He tears me down until I weep
He is the darkness of my mind
My sins and wickedness he does find
Help me stop this nightmare
He is more than I can bear
My demon is strong and cold
He weakens me if I try to be bold
He'd devour me if I were to fall
Bind me to his evil call
Stabs me with claws of hate
Gnaws with fangs of depressing fate
Perhaps it's too late for salvation
For all I deserve is condemnation
Too weak to slay my demon
Doomed to live as a miserable human
