Is it like a flavor yearning to be tasted
or an addiction that slowly takes control,
a gift waiting to be presented
promising to fulfill your soul?
Behind the veil lurks an answer
to a question that remains unasked,
so you exist in its shadow
in fear of being unmasked.
Beauty catches the eye
innocence sings its song,
the stench of weakness smothers
like an infection being passed along.
The reality of fantasy entices
where the greenest grass grows,
barriers cease to exist
in the places where no one ever goes.
Lost within the picture of perfection
the world of illusion becomes what's real,
the unspoken shatters the mask
leaving the face of weakness revealed.

Feel the heat
that flows from within,
the children of the night await
for your new life to begin,
fall from grace
into the arms of sin,
set heaven ablaze
and let's bask in the glow of the fire.
Taste the wine
my body bleeds,
give in to the hunger
let yourself feed,
quench your thirst
set yourself free,
then take my hand
and let's dance with the fire.
Betrayed by a light
that left you excluded,
you've found the answer
that has always eluded,
a darkened world
now shines so lucid,
dive in with me
and let's drown in the fire.
