Haken – Messiah Complex II: A Glutton For Punishment


Greed and guile
Colour my life with aurus rose
Temper my yearning

Abdicate the throne, majesty
Gold topples the crown
Blood festers the ground

Hell on Earth
My blessing and my curse
How did I fail my holy grail?
Taper my hunger

With your compound eyes
Parasites leeched upon the guilt
And a call to arms
Paradise led me down a path to the core

Fail
Try
Fall
Rise

Scars run deep
Tormenting me with her reptilian glare
How is she forsaking me when my devil may care?
With your compound eyes
Parasites echo through the walls
And a call to arms
Paradise, breath me in, I’m dead to the world
