Whispers, whispers, a riot everywhere,
Hear them curse, hear them swear.
Hear them cheer, hear them scream,
Hear them suffocating me.
Listen to the monster in me,
Hear it coming free.
Tearing its way from the inside,
Hear me screaming words as I die.
Whispers, whispers, a riot in Hell,
Hear a thud as we fell.
I’ve tried so hard to run away,
Yet the shackles make me stay.
This cage is dark, alone and strong,
The thing in me is unnatural and wrong.
So many times I’ve lied,
So many times I’ve tried,
So many times I’ve died,
Whispers, whispers, finally quiet,
Except the laughter of victory, as loud as the riot.
