Something in Me’s Changing

Cast chains across this wooden door,

Something in meʼs changing,

Writhing on the dirty floor,

My Bodyʼs Rearranging,

 

Tore the pillows clear apart,

Bathed the room in blood and feather,

Used to be pure of heart,

Iʼm breaking free from my tether,

 

The fever sets in with the harvest moon,

Iʼm chanting one last prayer,

The Wolfbaneʼs full in bloom,

Unwind the ribbons from my hair,

 

Forming an unholy skin,

Cutting a new set of teeth,

Howling out my greatest sin,

Shedding my former sheath,

 

Running out into the night,

Heart pumping in my ears,

Trailing blood on snow of white,

Licking up my salty tears,

 

Iʼve strayed off the beaten path,

Got to feed this hunger,

Growling wild ancient wrath,

Itʼs come to tear me asunder,

 

Falling onto hallowed ground,

Oh Iʼve sunk so low,

Iʼve become Perdition bound,

Where the seeds of madness grow,

 

The wind it steals my breath,

I hear them coming round the bend,

Now is the hour of my death,

I know how this will end,

 

Bearing pitchforks and torches,

Theyʼve come to burn me whole,

The golden flame it scorches,

Burning flesh, purifying soul.
