I've spent my whole life trying to find
Some shelter from this hell
Raging on underneath my skin
And still I struggle to find

I never learned how to love
I only learned how to hate
How can you take me seriously
When I'm in this state

They make me their slaves
Without them I can be a free man
But until I break these chains
I am plagued by inner demons

So sit with me awhile
While we try to figure this one out
I've been numbed to pain
And yet I'm constantly burning

Heaven and hell aren't places
They are states of being
And I find myself
In Lucifer's grasp

They make me their slaves
Without them I can be a free man
But until I break these chains
I am plagued by inner demons

So where are you now
Shining knight in armor
Will you stab them with your
Iron blades?

And where is my divine intervention
I seek not but a chance
To free myself from these bonds
Or else die hating myself

You are the key, and you don't know it
But how do I tell you this?
I want you to save me
From myself

They make me their slaves
Without them I can be a free man
But until I break these chains
I am plagued by inner demons

They make me their slaves
Without them I can be a free man
But until I break these chains
I am plagued by inner demons
