What stalks us, what ails us?

Let go of your madness

like a rabid dog it haunts us

the slaver from its jaws

turns something loving

turns something lovely

into something horrible

that i must flee.

 

Let go of your duty

like a maddened beast it follows us

the red glare of its eyes

turns all thats happy

turns all thats natural

into a sin

I must pay for evermore.
