Ironic Messiah

The inspiration of this came over me just a few minutes ago. I had to write it down.

Ironic Messiah

Verse One
The chains you stoop before and bow to
Are now depressing and confusing you
The bondage you once proudly idolized
Has taken you by complete surprise

Tell me, is this what you wanted?
Is this what you expected?

Chorus
Toxic beauty, you run to your addiction
Claiming it'll save you from the pain
You cling to the thing that destroys you
Begging it to deliver you from the stain

The stain that claims you and devours you
It's killing you, but you live in denial
You want it to save you, but it only destroys
Isn't that an ironic messiah? 

Verse Two
You give your whole life up to remain
In this cycle that's getting harder to tame
It'll bring you a moment of joy tonight
But when it's over, that's when you realize

That this isn't what you wanted
This isn't what you expected 

Chorus
Toxic beauty, you run to your addiction
Claiming it'll save you from the pain
You cling to the thing that destroys you
Begging it to deliver you from the stain

The stain that claims you and devours you
It's killing you, but you live in denial
You want it to save you, but it only destroys
Isn't that an ironic messiah? 

Bridge
Your whole life is hanging
By a thread
You'll be dead
If you keep on hanging on

Your whole live revolves
Around it
You've found it
The thing that no remedy cures

Chorus
Toxic beauty, you run to your addiction
Claiming it'll save you from the pain
You cling to the thing that destroys you
Begging it to deliver you from the stain

The stain that claims you and devours you
It's killing you, but you live in denial
You want it to save you, but it only destroys
Isn't that an ironic messiah? 

The End
