I feel my body
Has been betrayed
I feel it growing
Inside my veins
It's taking over
I can't recover from the pain
I am slowly dying
I am getting weaker every day

My flesh is rotting
I smell decay
My wits are fading
Muscles atrophy
Left in this bed
This sterile room shall be my grave
Here to die alone
Infectious still, I am the plague

Please let me die!

God as my witness I have taken torment
You stood by every painful moment
Life has taught me of your cold indifference
When I die I will come for vengeance

In death I fight for justice
For all of those who've lived in pain
Open the gates
Face the bodies you have cursed
We are an army
The tortured souls of Earth

Please let me die!
