My life, is everything That feeds my thirst, That causes sin. My wants, are all I care No shame and guilt, there's nothing there. Look deep, into my face I sell deceit, without a trace. Fear not, what I can do Unless you, want it done to you. As I climb onto your back, I will promise not to sting. I will, tell you what you want to hear And not mean anything. Then I, treat you like a dog, As I shoot my venom in You pretend you didn't know, That I am a scorpion. My self, I'm centered in There's nothing else, There's never been. And I dream, to be left alone With the sadness, the madness of my own. Look deep, into my soul It's black as coal, like a bullet hole. Fear not, get off your knees There's no defense, You'll do what I please. As I climb onto your back, I will promise not to sting. I will, tell you what you want to hear And not mean anything. I will, treat you like a dog, As I shoot my venom in 'Cuz you knew all along, I am a scorpion. My lies, to reach the shore I aggrandize, and nothing more My hopes, to steal away All that you love, I'll soon betray. Look deep, into my past The pain I feel, is unsurpassed I'm not, a lowly scorpion I'm so much worse, I'm the fall of man.
