There's a demon lying by my side
i thought he was asleep but he opened his eyes
i saw terror,fear,hate, despair
And there was sadness everywhere
Failure,guilt and hidden lies
Feeding off me like a bunch of flies
He's draining my good, this evil bastard
ive got to overcome, got to try and last it
Bastard demon close your eyes
im not ready yet for my demise
Bastard demon go to sleep
My body's strong but my soul is weak.
But now he turns with outstretched claw
And freezes me with an evil roar
i am his prey there is nothing i can do
He sinks his claws and tears my soul in two
i thought i would be dead, but even worse, im hooked
i wish that i was dead, he's got me, now im fcked
Now he runs my life he's running through my veins
im turning into evil, i do whatever he says.
When i wake up every morning im violently sick
i have to go and get him and do it really quick.
So now the demon has me, im all his now
i want to get him out but i dont know how
He thrives on my sadness this i do know
If i start to love myself hopefully he'll go
im gonna go through hell over the next few weeks
i dont really care, i'll do whatever it takes
Myself, plus my girlfriend and beautiful son
This is my family, we are as one
i must have hurt them badly but i really didnt care
Because the demon had me my feelings just were'nt there
So listen everybody, dont let the demon in
You all know who he is, the evil Heroin...
