Lyrics

Like a magnet I'm drawn
To those who are weak, fragile, insecure
To those who I can influence, touch, reassure
To those who I can lie to, empower and deploy
To those who I can make feel small

The power of my words, my scowl and my sword
I use them all
Caught in a fly trap, spread out on the wall
Attracted by the scent to a lifetime of torment
These lashings are all you deserve
Still you beg for more

You crawl around the corners of my room
There are no cracks in the wall
There are no handles on the doors
Just a two way mirror from where I control
All that is yours

Cast a glance into the future
Into the mind of my seducer
When the post mortem is done
And that's perverse has become
My enthralling world

I can peel back your face
And with consummate grace
Climb inside
Crawl under your skin
Unsure of what I'll find within
The cobwebs of your darkened mind

The cobwebs of your darkened mind!
