Devil’s Infliction

Written “by” Michael for the band Forsaken in the Brooding Darkness: Shadows Beneath plotlines.

walls of glass that shatter at my own reflection
a thousand feelings of wanting the words I cannot find
chasms of unbreakable shadows caused by her rejection
leaving nothing but the fear that fills my mind

she held me down and ripped my soul away
torn me to peices with all of her games
i could draw that bridge a thousand times
abandoning love to cross over hate’s lines
nothing was ever real, nothing was ever true
binded by ties of regret, until i met you

understand that love is the devil’s infliction
a sort of madness that consumes the mind
even he can’t escape the sweet addiction
a kind of connection most can never find

she held him down and ripped his soul away
torn him to peices with all of her games
he could draw that bridge a thousand times
abandoning love to cross over hate’s lines
nothing was ever real, nothing was ever true
binded by ties of regret, until he met you

don’t be fooled by his convictions
the excuses he chooses to hide behind
he builds his lies on contradictions
and refuses to have his heart entwined

the devil and i are one in the same
played by a woman with dirty games
all that was left of the hate and the blame
but it took one angel for all to change

nothing was ever real, nothing was ever true
binded by ties of regret, until i met you
binded by ties of regret, until i met you
