The Addict

Evil fingers caressing the face Every line they do trace All the silver strands of hair Take the ride so you won't care Hide the many scars of pain Get back on the horse and ride again Why do such good men Allow the evil to come in A child's cry they do not hear While they wonder why they're not held near A woman standing on the brink If only they would stop and think She wouldn't have to look away Hide herself from the light of day Here goes another trip Now you're feeling a little sick Takes one travelling back in time When nothing at all had no reason or rhyme What's it gonna be my dear Who'll be the one's wiping away the tears Always consequences you see Nothing from the Devil comes for free Hear him whisper in your ear Feel the need as it appears Breathing fire that burns so hot No touching the pain or hitting the spot More. More. Just one more Then promise yourself to walk out that door The head pounds as he speaks Louder the call to claim and wreak Havoc and pain all around The price for riding the horseless merry go round Dizzying. Whirling. Feeling high Swear you could almost touch the sky Then suddenly wonder why it's never enough Everyone's gone and you're feeling pretty rough Talk to yourself cause you're left all alone Go on beating yourself with the jagged stone Dare to forget the dues made to pay If in the Devil's rhealm you choose to play Can't you feel it as it goes Each little piece of your soul
