VERSE 2
  (Verse riff 1 - repeat eight times)

I can see the light, I don't want to burn
Help me save my soul, let me live
Your curse is not my fear, demons in me hear
I will escape your wrath, six six six
This is not my way, doom, sorrow for all eternity
Lights shine below in hell, forever burning
Words of insanity scream out final plea
Evil voices screaming out, help me!!!

  (Verse riff 2 - repeat four times)
  (Verse riff 1 - repeat four times)

Demons in my body gone, sicken thoughts left beyond
Haunted by evil memories, nightmares and sin 
My mind is burnt and black, shadowed, no way back 
Fear of living in hell axed my mind 

  (Verse riff 2 - repeat four times)
  (Verse riff 1 - repeat four times)

Memories held within, satan's gone in sin 
Grasping to relieve the pain, scarred for life 
Exorcism takes control, beneath my body help my soul
Save my soul from evil hell, your spell is lost 

  (Verse riff 2 - repeat four times)

CHORUS - Chorus riff 1, Chorus riff 2 (four times), Chorus riff 1
