This Wretched Plague Lyrics

8. This Wretched Plague (5:13)
Devouring the virulent potion
Ingesting the foul concoction
Voracious appetite for destruction
Malignant, the cancer that destroys you
Swallowing the poison that is also our cure
Your body is polluted and your mind's a mess
Immersed in an intemperate stupor
Ignorant, unaware of damage you do
Inflict pain upon yourself and the ones you love
Impetuous deeds and vile tirades
Trapped in an endless cycle of self-abuse
Obsessed by this wretched plague that consumes you
Where once I felt compassion
Now I feel only contempt
The distance between us grows
With every word left unsaid
You are feeble and weak devoid of honour
I cannot bear to suffer a fool with no self-respect
Escape from the rotten thrall that enchants you
Freedom calls sever the toxic veins
Liberate, cast off the yoke that enslaves you
Save yourself, snap the chains of addiction
Offer your hand
And I will receive it with joy
Let me in to be part of your life again
A new journey begins
Together we fight
