The Deceiver

Written by: Ryan Lucas

I am the one who stalks you
In a cunning scheme
Armed with wild intentions
From your restless dreams

There is nowhere to run and hide
Your soul belongs to me
Any pretense of independence
Is only fallacy

Once you grow tired of fighting
My arms will open wide 
The more you try to struggle
Hunger eats you inside

Beg for mercy when you pray
You will never get away
Because I’m The Deceiver
And you are my believer

Let go of inhibition
Reason for new insight
To view the lights of Heaven
You must embrace the night

Every way out is an illusion
A maze you cannot see
Feeling your way through paths of darkness
Just leads you back to me

Once you grow tired of fighting
My arms will open wide 
The more you try to struggle
Hunger eats you inside

Beg for mercy when you pray
You will never get away
Because I’m The Deceiver
And you are my believer
