A Man Possessed is about wanting to give up everything and give in to the dark urges. To be a willing slave. To let something else destroy them and smile as it happens, be it a vice, violence, sex, or drugs. Make someone else do it as long as it's dirty and there's no coming back.


A Man Possessed

From across the room
I see you
I know what you do
I need it
You're a fatal disease
You love to flaunt it
I am on my knees
You know I want it

Need to feel your flame, don't leave me cold
After all, what good's a soul if it can't be sold?

Like a man possessed
My heart is beating right through my chest
And I can't help it but I don't protest
Have I a cursed soul or am I blessed
This man possessed?

I feel that something sobering sting
Reality kicks in
And yet you remain
My twisted vixen
With your face close to mine
You whisper ' give in'
You control the hell I wanna live in

Need to feel your flame, don't leave me cold
After all, what good's a soul if it can't be sold?


Can you taste it now?
This desperation
With a smile I face
Your condemnation
Don't be gentle now
Burn this effigy
Consume into yourself
Every part of me

I'll give you my torture and my pain
Just burn me down, don't build me up again


Like a man possessed...(x4)

Come lick it off my lips
The tremulations in your fingertips
Vibrations in your skin as my effect takes hold
Burns bitter subjugation deep into your soul

Every part of me

I'm a man possessed (x4)
