3. Act of Contrition (6:10)
Emotions are easily spent, twisted and forever bent
When fixations are not returned the lines are so quickly obscured

When I am haunted by your vision, I will cause you pain
At me you spit your derision, you are my obsession
You are repelled by my existence, but you will soon be trained
My sins atoned for in silence, an act of contrition

Held before my eyes though distant enough to be seen
If I were to pull it too close, I''d blur it to its full extreme
I''m barren of anything else
A lunatic''s need to possess you

When I am haunted by your vision, I will cause you pain
At me you spit your derision, you are my obsession
You are repelled by my existence, but you will soon be trained
My sins atoned for in silence, an act of contrition

Rational thought
Has vanished and fled for its life
The one goal after which I''ve sought
It''s upon your fear that I thrive
When written words are now legible
The story can be told
But when they''re thrust too close to my eyes
They become a blindfold
And it''s then reality
Fades into obscurity
Then I find that my mania is out of control
I tighten the grip on my obsession, but I can''t be consoled

Now it''s made me dangerous
To all but you I''m oblivious
Distortions, perverse and unfair, you''re threatened as I dominate
You need me, so why are you scared?
From my grasp there is no escape
Don''t you ever think of leaving me
You are mine until I set you free
The pain you feel is of no consequence
Many suffer, few survive...
I''m not one with whom to be toyed, your mind easily I''ll destroy
Enforcing my supremacy, accept me, I''m your destiny

When I am haunted by your vision, I will cause you pain
At me you spit your derision, you are my obsession
You are repelled by my existence, but you will soon be trained
My sins atoned for in silence, an act of contrition
