Gone: a shaggy gray rat runs under the radiator
A split second of shadow
Gone: that's me, I'm nothing to anybody
Traverse the Dark

Mea culpa, stink of sulfer, broth of boiling scum
Razor blades, aborted babies
Cancer cuts of brains and hearts and dicks and lungs

The hatred: the fire that boils my blood
The riot and the iron mask of the leper that I have become
No metal can conceal the things I have done
If I could, I would but there's no way back from what I've become

Rat flesh infested with parasites,
mangled and deformed
Gone: misshapen tangle-fuck of alibis
I'm not here any more

Face is flushed and the skin is drawn
at the truth I've always known
The wasted lies I've trash-collected:
My excuses are my own

I am this, I did this, I built this collection
I spread this infection to all that I touch
I've become one with this rat's nest: there's no going back
I'd rather bite off my fingers than reach for the sun

Betrayer, defiler
In the shape of a man, the King Rat comes
