Demon Within Me


Wild nights I toss and turn
Hearing the screams deep with in
Voices yelling wanting to be free
Trying to control myself
But there is a power deep with in
That I can't defeat
It speaks to me of horrific things
Uncontrollable thrust that water cannot quench
An eerie thrust for blood
Nightmares that I fear to come true
For I hear people screaming
And red is the only color I see
Losing the power to stay true to myself
Fearing the night for the demon within is free
I have lost the fight to be true
The demon is what I have become
Slashing and seeing the nightmares are coming true
For now I'm locked in a room
Surrounded by blood and guts
For I have done the demons will
