The Evil, the Demon Locked Away Inside My Heart

What do you do with someone who has a black heart? One so black, that no light can shine through it What would you do to try to get away? A potential killer, locked away on the inside Now seems to be emerging and nothing can stop it How do you plan on keeping, the devil inside? You wanted nothing nice of me Instead, you preferred…that I show you The evil trapped in my heart… Why does everyone want to… See how far they can go with me? I wanna know So can you please tell me? Why doesn't anyone appreciate… The fact that I try to remain sane? I wanna know So, tell me… I don’t fight much anymore like I used to Just because the sight of blood excites me I would fight to the death, if I could… I've nearly killed a few of my friends when in rage And a few times, little children as well But I'm afraid of what I can do That is why, I became an outcast… Just to prevent such a thing…from happening again Now why did you bring it out again? Why does everyone want to… See the evil, the demon in my heart? I wanna know So, you better tell me Why do you act like the rest of them? Did you want to see me insane? I wanna know Do you wanna die? Everyone…doesn't deserve To be treated with kindness…nor respect For that matter, so why try? Why does everyone want to… Be caught up in the darkness? I wanna know And you better tell me I won't waste my time with you all To me it seems that you want to go to hell. I wanna know Do you plan on joining me?
