I’m falling away
Away from myself
Away from who I used to be
Arid skin cracked and torn, I peel it away

A change for the better to harness the strength and rise more powerful
Now more powerful than ever
A decrepit self once animate, now abandoned and left to rot
Nothing to be salvaged, nothing to be saved

Now follow the thrashing thought of your dream to exist
Pursue what may never come
Releasing demons and banishing them to the depths of bloody memories and Regrets
The outer shell is decomposing, releasing a new upgraded self

Bleeding ink reveals the price of expansion
Push it down, its hideous face below the water
Watch what was become never again

Let nothing stop you for when it lived, it showed no mercy
Now show it no remorse
Cut compassion from your mind

Forget what it means to cherish life
Now following the thrashing thought of your dream to exist
Pursue domination
