Is been quite long since last we spoke
I noticed you don't like me
I don't like you either
Is not like we gonna kill each other in public
Im sure you don't want to call attention friend
So how long will it take?

A jail to lock you?
Is gonna be fun
Is gonna hurt a lot
So i will hear you sing pain for us all

So many nights long away from day
Seeing mimics become actions
So many people here your screams of fear and help will not be heard

To my eyes is quite tainted in red
My tongue asks desperate for your blood
It has made me hungrier every passing day and night
Is smiling deep
But what is behind these eyes?

But i know the story
I know the taste
And i want to repeat that story
