Track Name: Famine
i've betrayed myself to a love

that can promise only torture

the sweet release of a comforting agony

that reminds me i can still feel at all

because i only know i'm alive

when i can still feel the pain



I hate myself so much

that i've given myself to this agony

impaled my heart on the whims of your affection

surrendered my soul to the fickle tides of your mood.



i've betrayed myself

to a love

that can promise only torture

the sweet release of a comforting agony

that reminds me i can still feel at all

because i only know i'm alive

when i can still feel the pain



I deserve this punishment

this living damnation

from which only death can give release

I was lost from the beginning

my feeble denial

was no match for this inevitable retribution

my own spirit demands it

as pennance for my empty, abominable lust



you will never be mine

and i am condemned to this love, pure and true.

for as long as i live

you'll be a siren, always beyond reach

driving me forever deeper into the rocks of despair, and loneliness

my never ending hunger

for that one sweet kiss

will tear away at my being

until there is nothing left of me

but famine.
