It’s beautiful really, don’t you think?
The red that fills your eyes.
The rage replacing rationality
The one that’s sick of lies.
The rising ire from betrayal
With the knife still in your back
The blade that sits and numbs the flesh
The ropes that hold you to the rack
You try to fight it with naught but reason
But it defies your rationality
It fills you with a dark desire
and it disputes your reality
The knife is there you can’t refute
In your back the cold of steel
Radiates into your core
And anger is all you feel.
Give in to passionate beast
The indignation in your heart
The monster lurks inside of you
Let it tear you apart.
