Everything you thought was wrong, I kept,
Thus feeding off the darkness that you hide.
But soon the cage was full, no more I slept,
The time for freedom was mine to decide.

For painful years, you've kept me caged within,
Your mind became the prison I despise.
But something faltered, a mistake therein,
And that was all it took for your demise.

The dark corners within are my dominion,
Your silenced heart is mine to reap.
I come to stay, not be your minion,
And this is a prize I intend to keep.

I've waited long enough to finish you,
Now, Alex, let the war commence anew.
