Electric glow upon my face 
Traces of black searing my eyes 
Expressionless, stoic madness 
Blind and silent rage 

The list of sins grows by the day 
Lists of excuses slowly burn 
And in the wind I hope it's you 
Saying it's all right 

But I deserve much less
So haunt me forever
In the dark, in the cold, in the light 

When you see me trembling 
I want to feel your callous chill 
Haunt me forever 

No cure for this self-loathing 
There's no pity I would accept 
Constructing an abyss
To feel your misery

I won't seek Panacea 
She couldn't ameliorate 
And now you shall ascend graciously
And I shall burn in Hell 

But I deserve much more
So haunt me forever 
In the dark, in the cold, in the light 

With this final infraction 
A narcissistic threnody 
Haunt me forever
