Trust replaces fame
November rust replaces life-giving rain
Don't you slip up again, let your guard down too low
You left no trail behind you, no pray no one will ever know
Now something's growing inside you
Foreshadowing of what's to come
As the claws sink in deeper, you only get numb

Consider this your warning
Your future bears the mark of mourning
The ashes soil your once-better half
The light that once blessed your path
Now shadowing (right behind)
Following (just out of sight)
Shadowing (right behind)
Hallowing (you...)

Smoke clears from the sky
When it spoke, it extinguished the truth from your eyes
The truth that you've hidden so well for so long
You barely remember when everything went wrong
Anesthetize yourself from the lies
Your flesh and your bones are now merely a clever disguise
A curtain to hide behind
And before long you can forget
What's on the other side

Throwback to the time when your heart beat the blood of empathy
Cold fact, no denying the abomination you were meant to be...
Against the backdrop of rusted reality
Your silhouette reveals your true identity

Now you've got a devil beside you, the same one that you've always known
Desire and duty divide you, corrupting you down to the bone
Now you've got a devil inside you, a devil of your very own.
