"The Cycle"

I'm keeping it in my soul
This piece of light I stole
But my heart rejects the curse

I run away as fast as I can
From where these problems began
But my mind rejects the cure

I pull it out from my tongue
Blow it out from my lungs
Place it back inside its box
And seal it with a thousand locks

But its ghost sings into my ears
Bringing my eyes to tears
And my stomach turns to stone
Because I know what I'm about to do

I'm keeping it in my soul
This piece of light I stole
But my heart rejects the curse

I run away as fast as I can
From where these problems began
But my mind rejects the cure

I wait until I'm alone
And hope my crimes will remain unknown
Risking my immortal life
Just to get a glimpse of light

But I'm addicted, and it's not enough
I have to keep cranking the dosage up
And every time the crash grows worse
Until I face what I have to do

I'm keeping it in my soul
This piece of light I stole
But my heart rejects the curse

I run away as fast as I can
From where these problems began
But my mind rejects the cure

I sin and say I won't
Won't ever sin again
And the cycle continues
On and on and on

Can't resist the temptation
But my conscience just can't give in
And the cycle continues
On and on and on and on and on

I'm keeping it in my soul
This piece of light I stole
But my heart rejects the curse

I run away as fast as I can
From where these problems began
But my mind rejects the cure

This war has taken its toll
Yet I'm keeping it under control
Until it breaks the weak link

I'll be fine as long as I'm free
To choose the outcome of this deed
I'll be fine, I'll be fine, I think
