There is a joy that banishes all reason

an ectasy so vast it has no shore

a craving that devours all decision

a lust for nothingness that lusts for more

there are angels in pursuit of pain

who take satanic pride in degradation

who will drag you down the hill and back again

bring your sweet humiliation

just like a fire fanned by a hot dry wind

or like a flood that sweeps away will

this wall of pleasure leaves no one behind

no sign of life where all one loves lies still

so does the soul in anguish hate the joy

that soothes the hate that does the soul destroy.
