What pain will it take to satisfy your sick appetite go in for the kill always in sight-prey the time always right-feast feed on the pain-taste sorrow made flesh-sweet live how you want just don't feed on me if you doubt what i say i will make you believe shallow are words from those who starve for a dream not their own to slash and scar Big words, small mind behind the pain you will find a scavenger of human sorrow scavenger abstract theory the weapon of choice used by scavenger of human sorrow scavenger So you have traveled far across the sea to spread your written brand of misery Always in sight, prey The time always right, feast Feed on the pain, taste Sorrow made flesh, sweet Live how you want Just don't feed on me If you doubt what I say I will make you believe Shallow are words From those who starve For a dream not their own to Slash and scar Big words, small mind Behind the pain you will find a scavenger Of human sorrow Scavenger Abstract theory The weapon of choice used by a scavenger Of human sorrow Scavenger
2.
Look down at the body you may see no trace of wounds but in the eye the eye of the beholder one cannot assume. Not a drop of blood is drawn but you know how it bleeds beware of the sharp edged weapon called human being It is a shield of passion and strong will from this I am the victor instead of the kill I will not feed your hunger, instead I bite the pain looking not back, but forward I bite down hard try to cover up the trail of deceit and daggers spawned from your soul Acid, the tears of remorse flow in vain, too late for regrets save it for the next ill fated game.
3.
It comes from the depths of a place unknown to the keeper of dreams if it could then it would steal the sun and the moon from the sky beware Human at sight, monster at heart don't let it inside it could tear you right apart No guilt, it feeds in plain sight Spirit Crusher Stay strong and hold on tight Spirit Crusher Speaking in killing words The vicious kind that crush and kill no mercy, its pleasure to taste The blood that it bled. When it's time to feed to fulfill the need to consume a breath some will rise standing tall breathing out all the breath from the voice of a soul.
4.
Drifting into the lives seep into the soul where emotions hide dark skies were beating me down with shadows of deceit slashing at trust till it forever bleeds with doubt, with pain, with trust is pain. When you think of me in your multidimensional mind, try and wash the "evil" from your mind and open it. When you taste the truth you will see like others before me, to you I am past, a story to tell tell it. You may think you own the end take another close look at the script of sadness etched in the book.
5.
I told you once but I will say it again when you live the flesh it is the beginning of the end it will take you in it will spit you out behold the flesh and the power it holds passion is a poison laced with pleasure bitter sweet one of many faces that hide deep beneath it will take you in it will spit you out behold the flesh and the power it holds touch, taste, breathe, consumed deja-vu. already knew from the first encounter but know I know to let go of words to speak no more like a wind upon your face you can't see it but you know it's there, when beauty shows its ugly face, just be prepared. Passion burns like fire carried by the wind the end of a time, a time to begin it builds you up one way and tears you right back down, a time to begin the end of a time. Touch, taste, breathe, consumed.
6.
7.
Throughout our time a thought escapes us to enforce a word, no holding on to pain it may seem to some The easy way to say o.k., twist your knife a little deeper words so sharp actions dark hide the blade of the deceiver. Enforce the words no more, be free alone you might just find serenity. To accept another day we choose to give away another piece of life to forgive is to suffer Once or twice is kind three or four is blind it is not the end yet a way to begin the power of words both good and bad.
8.
I would describe it as an invisible darkness casting a shadow, a blinding black guarded by hope, my soul is kept safe from the bloody claws. Look to beyond, what vision lets me see time after time, unneeded misery holding tight to my dreams I own no price for you I grip them tight and hope for sight. Open my eyes wide to see a moment of clarity confusion gone, it's in your hands your turn to ask why. Life is like a mystery with many clues, but with few answers to tell us what it is that we can do to look for messages that keep us from the truth

Painkiller 06:02
Faster than a bullet Terrifying scream Enraged and full of anger He's half man and half machine Rides the Metal Monster Breathing smoke and fire Closing in with vengeance soaring high He is the Painkiller This is the Painkiller Planets devastated Mankind's on its knees A saviour comes from out the skies In answer to their pleas Through boiling clouds of thunder Blasting bolts of steel Evils going under deadly wheels He is the Painkiller This is the Painkiller Faster than a lazer bullet Louder than an atom bomb Chromium plated boiling metal Brighter than a thousand suns Flying high on rapture Stronger free and brave Nevermore encaptured They've been brought back from the grave With mankind resurrected Forever to survive Returns from Armageddon to the skies He is the Painkiller This is the Painkiller Wings of steel Painkiller Deadly wheels Painkiller
