Here you come barging in
Like a nightmare, you inscribe
A disease I'm unaware of
Slowly killing from the inside

Trying to invade my life once more
Asking for a second chance
But the fat lady's already sung
And the dancers have done their dance

Yet the memories are still never ending
And your face continues to haunt me
The pain still fights to wedge in deeper
While ghosts of your words echo loudly

"Turn back" they slither with grins in their spikes
"Your new life isn't really all that.
 Besides your troubles will follow you wherever 
 Just look at all the hurt you attract"

"Ponder it a moment and you'll concur 
 Our survey is most accurately true
 For even if you ran to the ends of the earth
 Your past would catch up to you"

"So try as you might, your doomed to fail
Disappointment you will foresee
Because even if you try to change
Your sure to follow your family tree."

"You're wrong!" The young one shouted back
 "For in Christ I have been reborn
  Those lies are no longer bound to me
  From my old life I am now torn"

 "Your words of death are no match for me
 For my daddy is the father of light
 He's taken my future into his hands
 And my story is Gods to rewrite."
"So be gone demons of mischief and torture 
And say hello to my new destiny
I've forfeited the footsteps laid long before
And in Him have a fresh legacy."
