MY PAIN, MY PRIDE  THESE SCARS ARE MINE 

 MY PAIN, MY PRIDE  THESE SCARS ARE MINE 

I will tell you a story,
That's never been told

I will tell you a secret,
5 lifetimes old ...

My life has been a prison,
A labyrinth built beneath the mountain of Tragedy.

I'm a stain on the cloth.
I'm just an after-thought.

But I 
 Would die
For this ....

But through the veins of decay 
I'll remain to betray 

To live like Caesar.
To die like Jesus.

To build my own religion,
No gods, no laws

To celebrate pain
 Forsaken & ashamed 

To watch them all,
 Crawl beneath us ...

On this bed of nails & regret  Dying of fevers, betrayal, & sweat 

I CRY ...

[chorus]

My organs are rotting,
My enemies are plotting ...

I AM MADE OF PAGES  PARAGRAPHS & INSPIRATIONS  PAPER GIRL, BURN THE WORLD, 
I PASS THE FLAME TO YOU!!

 MURDER  MAYHEM  HURT HER
 HATE HIM

 MURDER 
 MAYHEM 
 HURT HER
 HATE HIM

 MURDER MAYHEM
 HURT HER HATE HIM

 MURDER  MAYHEM  FUCK HER
 SLAY THEM!!

[verse]

My pain, my pride 
 These scars are mine

My pain .....

 MY MISERY HAS BEEN FORMULATED  INTO AN EQUATION OF NIEN

 MY SANITY WROTE 
A SUICIDE NOTE  BUT ONE OF US IS ILLITERATE  AND THE OTHER ... IS BLIND 

 MY 1st ACT OF TREASON  WAS PICKING UP A PEN 

 MY 1st ACT OF LOVE  WAS FINDING MYSELF AGAIN 

 THE HARDEST THING TO DO  WAS STANDING UP TO YOU 

 NOW I'M OFF MY KNEES  NOW YOU'RE BEGGING ME "PLEASE"

I'M THE WOUND & THE WEAPON  THE FRACTURE & THE FIST

[chorus]

My organs are rotting,
My enemies are plotting ...

I AM MADE OF PAGES  PARAGRAPHS & INSPIRATIONS  PAPER GIRL, BURN THE WORLD, 
I PASS THE FLAME TO YOU!!

 MURDER  MAYHEM  HURT HER
 HATE HIM

 MURDER 
 MAYHEM 
 HURT HER
 HATE HIM

 MURDER MAYHEM
 HURT HER HATE HIM

 MURDER 
 MAYHEM  FUCK HER
 SLAY THEM!!

[outro]

 THAT STABBING IN YOUR HEART,
 THAT BLACK HOLE IN YOUR SOUL,
 SLOWLY RIPPING YOU APART .... THAT'S ME!!!

THAT'S ME!!!

 SO LET IT BE WRITTEN,
 SO LET IT BE DONE!

 THE BRIGHTER THEY SHINE,
 THE DARKER WE BECOME!!

 VAE VICTUS!
ABOMINATION!
