It's about a man revealing his dark side to the world.

As I look back at the wreckage of my own making

The damage I have caused on my way across

The smoke from the ashes brings shame upon my face

And I wish there was a way to undo what I have done


My heart sinks deep into the valleys of darkness

All the colors lost, I see my spirit painted in black

Dead is my goodness, the inner splendor I once held

With all the love gone, I have begun to fade


I realize that I have become the evil I once despised

So I tear down my masks, my robe and rest of the grandeur

Things that made me appear good from the outside

And unveil before you, the monster who now dwells within me!
