I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

Dark fire burning through my veins,
The poison eating through my soul,
Vomiting up the good within as evilness and malignant deeds,
Not caring for the lives I hurt.

I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

Clouds of injustice blind me to the lighted truth,
As my eyes begin to see the lies of empty souls and selfishness,
My heart turns cold and my soul escapes me,
Leaving me an empty shell of what I used to be.

I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

Kind words pour out as tearing lies,
Slashing through like sharpened swords,
What remains of my soul writhes in chains,
Trapped so deep within by the devil's wrath.

I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

I stumble upon this uneven ground,
Unsure of who I am or where I am supposed to go,
I've lost myself to my inner demons,
And now I'm left to find myself in my darkened world.

I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

I no longer know who I am,
Without a soul I am doomed to exist instead of live,
Never enjoying life's simple, hidden joys,
Forever alone in the pressing crowd.

I don't want this mortal sin,
The essence of this life I'm in.

My life drains out of me,
Pray to the poison of hate and depression,
Far to weak to fight against it,
So I fade away as a forgotten casualty of existence.

I didn't want this mortal sin,
The essence of the life I was in.
