The Demon


Lurking in the shadows is where I reside 

I am always waiting

There's nowhere to hide


Look in the mirror

For you will see me

In your reflection

I will always be


I've taken over your mind

Now your body too

There's is no escape

Like a curse

through your veins

I belong to you


You chose me

The pull was so strong

I've been your very best friend

For far too long


I appreciate you turning to me

When times are hard

But I am not the answer

I will do you great harm


I will destroy you

It's sad

but it's true

We have to part ways now

Be strong and be brave 

Free yourself from your fears

Face being YOU


Take back your life 

Reclaim what is yours

You have the chance to be free

Don't choose me

Unlock the door
