My demon died when he was full

Two thousand at the funeral 

All cast their anger beady eyes my way 

Snarling they growl almost as one 

Dark thunderclouds obscure the Sun

The storm i thought had cleared is here to stay 

Lust pins me with her six inch heels 

Greed urges it's ok to steal 

Pride asks me what will happen if I'm caught 

The demon drink bowls through the door 

Shouting abuse hitting the floor 

Envy turns green unhappy with her lot 

A lightbulb moment helps me see 

This ain't for him they're here for me 

Wrath bellows out to claim me as his host 

Mortality for he who wins 

The poison laced throughout my sins 

Turns lost tormented souls to would be ghosts 

I favour some above the rest 

That jealous cunt's a Fukin pest

And hatred loves being out to freely roam

The bloodfest it was just for fun 

They all belong to only one

Smiling they signal time to take us home
