Devil's Echo

It's about struggling whether to reform your ways or give your self up to what you love to do, even if it's regarded by some as a path to self-destruction

I danced to the echo of the beginning

And my sins weigh heavy down on my heart

I look at the pages of my life and I despair

Cursing an karma that’s far from fair

 

The music that plays to a Devil’s direction

And how it pumps my heart into overdrive

It turns black what was pure, section by section

And brings a blood red colour to the skies

 

How this sensation reigns over me

I prey for purity and vice as one

How this sensation reigns over me

How it flickers and plays with me

 

A cruel way, horror and pleasure at once

Another day, another day to change my fate

Should I work in vain or acknowledge I’m wicked?

Another day, another day for my purity to break

 

Controlling me, ever so sweetly and subtly

Consumed with a power so seductive

 I glanced into my own heart and wept

The path I wondered so destructive

 

How this sensation reigns over me

I prey for purity and vice as one

How this sensation reigns over me

How it flickers and plays with me

The End
