The look in your eyes as I reach for my scalpel,
beckons me to a comfort so profound.
Internally I am longing for your corpse,
I must prolong before I send you to your grave.
I'll leave you alive for the morning, entertain me.
I'll leave you alive for the morning, captivate me.
The dawn now has arrived, my dear...say one last prayer to your lord.
My hands are tight around your throat, soothing my desire to embrace you.
The caress of your cold skin to mine, compells me to progress to intimacy divine.
Lay still and wonder what could have been, had I not found you, had I not found you.
These walls surrounding me hold secrets.
These secrets hold my mind together.
A chamber secluded to gather with the dead.
Harvest the organs, and hang their severed heads.


from The Midst of Perdition, released March 26, 2012
