Story

Story behind the song:

This song was written based of the script for a friend's horror movie.  The movie is about a father getting revenge on a guy who raped and murdered his daughter on her 16th birthday.  It's very dark lyrically, but I love the haunting melody of the intro section.  

Lyrics

I have found the darkest place

the blackest that I’ve known

It’s absent of all things

of everything I loved

I’ve come to take you there

so you can finally see

this thing that I’ve become

that’s killing me

you’ve haunted me these years

crawling in my head

a song that never ends

a song about the dead

I’ve come to take you home

to show you what you’ve done

so you can finally see

this thing that I’ve become

look at me look at me

is this the face of sympathy

is there life in these eyes

if there is it’s your enemy

look at you just look at you

feed the rage I’m coming to

what you’ve done

I am numb

now you’ll know what I’ve become

this thing that I’ve become

did she fight did she cry

when you stood and watched her die

did you feel like a god

when you saw fear in her eyes

I will have my revenge

you will never kill again

what you’ve done I am numb

now you’ll know what I’ve become

this thing that I’ve become
