Haken – Messiah Complex I: Ivory Tower


Shameless
Skying above
Preying on the nameless
Jury and judge
Everything they had was never enough
Spirit me away

Crawling under my skin
Spiraling through my head
Taste my own medicine
Drunk on the power
Rid this pestilence from within
A prayer for the innocent
Talk me down from the ledge of my ivory tower

Struggle to be in the now
When life’s too much to swallow
It spits me right out
But I cling on
Reaping seed I dare to sow
For all the lives I ever stole
And now I must repel the host
Forever I’ll be spirited away

Crawling under my skin
Spiraling through my head
Taste my own medicine
Drunk on the power
Rid this pestilence from within
A prayer for the innocent
Talk me down from the ledge of my ivory tower
Where I end you begin
When I fall you will stand
