Composed in 2006, originally track 8 of the Asphyxiation E.P. by Jak Noble


She's back again
I close my eyes and swallow the pain I feel
This can't be real
She wants it now
I've got to find my way out somehow

She's the salt in my wounds
Their hearts collapse before her now
How could you?
She betrays in rags on body-bags
Of lives that once revolved around her
(They revolved around her)

She's back again
Three months later it's the same old worn-out
She kisses my neck and begs for more
Her smile is lies and deceit
Masquerading a love for me

She's the flesh on their bones
Those who swore they'd die for her
An ironic matter
She lies in homes of broken souls
But still, she lives
And so it begins

Now, your time has come
So go enjoy the last night of your life
How, how could you do this?
A fool, I loved you

(Our father who art in heaven, hallowed be they name
Burn the blood of this demon whore, make her realise this pain)
Your time is running out, your time is running out
Your time is running out, your time is running out

(Come, swear it, damn thyself. Lest being like one of heaven, the devils themselves should fear to seize thee.
Therefore be double-damned. Swear thou art honest!
For heaven truly knows that thou art as false as Hell!)

How could you?
How could you do this to me?
How could you?
How could you?
I bled your name, I bled your name
Demon, slanderer
