Twisting All That I saying and doing
Burning even in pleasure
I burning
Melting away
Taking the impact
Look back
Take time to look back
Die in my own way

In time I conquering

The urging and needing are growing
Rotting in me
It happening over and over
Die in my own way

High Rate Extinction

Reign over you another day
Take all I can
Slave to me there’s no other way
Break all I can
Come and taste me
Stay and praise me
Take all I can while I burn you down
Weak man
Weak mind

You know you never will be free
Come for you time after time and again

Crawl with me

Give me what I need from you
Don’t question why
On your knees in front of me
Weak man
Weak mind
