As I enter the house of night, my name written on bloody walls,

Grieved mortals, buried deep in lover's arms look upon me with delight and fright.

They disguise my evil with a mask of kind and starless eyes, in solemn silence cry...

Obsession. My name is Obsession.

They breathe my name with ashen lips, cut and stained,

Red with blood and pain--- I'm destruction at its peak

I'm the demon of their dreams.

And still, in their nightmares they call to me...

Desire. My name is Desire.

Like the loyal hound I sit beside them,

Blackened wings spread without disgrace

As deadly as poison, as cold as death

And even the air whispers my name...

Pain. My name is Pain.

Poison words, I do not need,

Death and dismayspread my name just as quick

Formed sweetly in each dead man's lips

But my name, my true name

My perfect name that makes this all the more sweet:

Love. My name is Love.
