You've tasted the blood on the lips of the ******
You've stabbed every back till you've settled your score
Of Serpents and devils you lay in the shallows
Twisting and squirming corrupt all that's hallowed
Strangle the breath from their lungs evermore
You are the scourge that was banished at sea
You are the demon that's hiding in me
Devil I am in the shell of a man
Seeking this vengeance for those who've been ******
Finding no peace in the blood and gore
Mindless this violence I crave something more
Venom it flows from my every word
Poisoning you till you lag from the herd
Your moment of weakness is all you have left
Watching you falter and take your last breath
Beg to the God's that you've weathered your fate
Hungry for freedom but can't get a plate
Selfish you are when you give what you owe
Thinking that kindness is what you bestow
Greedy for pleasure you **** in the filth
Drowning in drink just to numb out the guilt
Bury yourself by the weight of your sins
So lost in the rage you'd turn blade to your kin
Captive you are to the way of the Gods
Chosen your service but yet still do wrong
The heart of a man is too quickly to break
Under the pressure your smile will turn fake


Of Serpents and devils you live in a land drowned in dark and your future is woven by threads torn apart as the Norns seek to guide but you live by your heart not your mind as the wisdom you seek is the wisdom you find but not what you keep as you're searching the deep and the sky comes alive with the lighting and thunder you reach for a knife to sever the life, to sever the line, you think with this freedom your future is fine.


Suffocating the liars with the tongue that's dipped in gold, speaking gentle whispered whimsy from a heart of broken stone,
Tragic fractures
Pain of past
Do you think this love will last?
Cursed for sins by karmas hold, you play games but quickly fold, the hand you're dealt, the hand you stole, does seeking wealth make your soul whole


Driven by profit to substitute power that comes from the knowledge you lack
Seeking the warmth of another like stars in the sky to ignore the endless black
Holding to these words turned violent questions hit like loaded guns
Fail to embrace the spirit resilient God will surely come
And when his words descend upon you life has just begun


Of Serpents and devils you live in a land drowned in dark and your future is woven by threads torn apart as the Norns seek to guide but you live by your heart not your mind as the wisdom you seek is the wisdom you find but not what you keep as you're searching the deep and the sky comes alive with the lighting and thunder you reach for a knife to sever the life, to sever the line, you think with this freedom your future is fine.


Do not seek to beg and pray
The wisdom comes on darkest days
And when you think you've had enough, the Gods will come and call your bluff, then feed you misery 'till you' re stuffed


Karmas hold worth more than gold, can lie to man, can wear a mask, can preach a truth you seldom walk, but God knows all, the night and dawn, he does attack
In little ways
The smallest things
The tiniest cuts are the most painful sting
