All that can escape me
All I realize
That it will come back to me
The day my father dies

His burning eyes would stare at you
I was born a masochist
I cried out in pain
As he clenches up his fist

Slowly as the years go by
The darkness builds inside
Trying to find a passage out
Before I lose my mind

Incestuous temptation
But what is wrong or right?
Why must I fall victim
Of hereditary spite

Soon, we will arise
Forming despise
Conceptual intent
Blessed in contempt
And then he wants to die

Thoughts have now come back to me
It's time to perpetrate
Take me to my sanity
Before it gets too late

Hear me as I call to you
Right here down below
Resurrect my will to live
Come before I go

Soon, we will arise
Forming despise
Conceptual intent
Blessed in contempt

Blessed in contempt
Blessed in contempt
Blessed in contempt
Blessed in contempt
