The Beast

He looks very bored today

Doesn't know if anyone will go his way

Something inside has clicked

And his wings have been clipped

I feel my time is on a loan

He can't be left alone

He just sits there grinning like a demon.

He talks about god and strife

But not about his own personal life

I ask him he seems pretty meek

He looks like he's seen everything in a week

What he sees now just makes him blue

Peers looking at him like scum on a shoe

They wait for an answer while I wonder if he cares

I know him and his plan

But I really don't know the man

I know him and his plan

But I just don't know the man

The kids were mean and called him Worm

He now laughs as they burn

But now he's bruised from falling

With a black eye from brawling

Not bitter but bored

A small man dressed like a lord

With his small ideas

It must have hurt him

To fall and be so grim

But what hurts more

Is the coldness of it all

The atmosphere freezes in the room

I feel his electricity loom

I feel the hate in his eyes

I know him and his plan

But I really don't know the man

I know him and his plan

But I just don't know the man

Snarling as the others kiss their girls

At the happy virgins giving the women a whirl

He says he has ultimate power

But all he can do is glower

He looks so unhappy

Lonely in his evil beauty

Sitting on that dark throne must have hurt

Like a dog chained to the wall

He knows he can't leave at all

But he draws me in with promises of the sun

A suggestive smile and he's already won

I don't know what he'll do with his nation

He is only pure temptation

Especially when he calls to me

I know him and his plan

But I really don't know the man

I know him and his plan

But I just don't know the man

Dark and brooding, weak and low

To him it's all a show

I'm drawn in while moving away

His powers wane, he abandoned hope today

He thinks about where he is

Less than human and it is bliss

Tears of hate flood from his eyes

I know him and his plan

But I really don't know the man

I know him and his plan

But I just don't know the man
