Track Name: In The Peripheral; Part II (2012 Demo Version)
Staring into the eyes of unending darkness,
she stumbles beneath his words.
Intimidated by the moving shadows that surround her.
Her fear, his fuel.

His arms stained red from his trade, encase her fragile frame.
Paralyzed by the fear he brings, she begins to...
Abandon her last scrap of hope, but as his gaze deepens...
She recalls details she had overlooked in her state of dread.

His eyes, his form, his being...
Solely smoke and mirrors.
Composed by the fear of men,
yet powerless without it.
Tear his lies limb from limb,
false gospel in ashes.
Let his spores fall out of your side...
His true form is witnessed.

A snake in the grass,
a coward at best. X2

Her realization now fulfilled,
she is greater than he.
His lies are not to be trusted,
she is great than he.

She screams....

"Let the ground open and swallow you whole." X2
"Let the ground open..."

Sever the arms of the butcher. X2

Her words ripple his cheeks,
shaking the marsh leaves.
His control over her gone,
his arms lie severed.

Sever the arms of the butcher. X2

His true form is witnessed.
His deception lies in tatters.

Now rebuilt in truth, in strength.
She leaves...
His broken form in the dirt...
from whence it came.

She cannot be touched,
she is greater than he.
Let his body decay,
she is greater than he.
