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!
