about

The newest song written for the album, written and finished in early 2017. The only song in which I have heavy vocal part.
The song is intended to be about a man getting possessed by a demon, him resisting but ultimately giving up.

lyrics

(Verse 1)
[Scott]
Souls come screaming to me
[Cody]
Within your sleep your mind is free
[Scott]
My hands try to block my ears
[Cody]
Come my child there's nothing to fear
[Scott]
An icy hand grasps my spine
[Cody]
Within this world you are so blind
[Scott]
Tonight... I'll stand, I'll fight, I'll defeat their kind

Voids invade my dreaming mind
[Cody]
Within you now our fates entwined
[Scott]
My heart tries to outrun my fears
[Cody]
Can't you tell your prison is here?
[Scott]
How to stop your tormenting me?
[Cody]
You're in control, you hold the key
[Scott]
My mind, they invade... they set my dreams aflame

(Chorus)
Liars in my head
[Cody]
I'll fill your soul with dread
[Scott]
Fighting for my life, I'm fighting my own mind
The wrath they place on me
[Cody]
In your heart, your soul bleeds

(Verse 2)
[Scott]
How do I fight this curse?
[Cody]
Just give in or we'll make it worse
[Scott]
I try to hold by my tears
[Cody]
Just let it out there's nothing to fear
[Scott]
The shadow you cast on me
[Cody]
Don't resist now, it will set you free
[Scott]
These words... a poison a flame they'll lead me astray

Subjugation of my mind
[Cody]
It's all part of our design
[Scott]
And darkness, is imprisoning me
[Cody]
You knew the price, you'll pay the fee
[Scott]
My soul will never fall in line
[Cody]
You'll conform to our design
[Scott]
You'll try, but you know you'll never take me alive

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
[Scott]
Bridge to the other side
A motif on a blighted mind
Conduit of nightmares past
The final die has been cast

Light the torch to feed the flame
A possessed tongue has no shame
Giving into their wicked ways
My prize will be their highest praise

[Cody]
Give up, no chance for tomorrow
A void of constant sorrow
In lifetimes that have passed
None have escaped our wrath

(Verse 3)
[Scott]
Darkness has taken me
[Cody]
How does it feel to be free?
[Scott]
Succumbed to their wicked ways
[Cody]
For this you get our highest praise
[Scott]
Was I too weak for restraint?
[Cody]
Our gift is only for the brave
[Scott]
The power I feel, I know it cannot be real

Ethereal spectres haunting me
[Cody]
Your heart was a bad disease
[Scott]
But there's no light in my soul
[Cody]
Where it was we have left a hole
[Scott]
Will I regret this life?
[Cody]
You'll find out when you pick up the knife
[Scott]
I'll try, but I know I cannot make it out alive

(Chorus)
Demons in my head
[Cody]
We filled your soul with dread
[Scott]
I'm giving up my life, I've given up my mind
God can you hear my cries?
[Cody]
In your heart, your soul dies
