about

Inspired by the novel, "Midnight Rain," by James Newman

lyrics

Strikes her right before my eyes
His face distorted like in a disguise
I watch as he kills her, I watch as she dies

A front row seat to bloody lacerations
A 101 in violent fascination

She hits the floor, I know she's dead
Then the man, slams her head
Why did he kill her, why do we die?

Blood soaked childhood manifestations
Her body's ripe for maggot infestation

(Beware)
The secret place
(Shattered)
What is to become of me?
(Shattered)
I can't sleep, it's all I dream

In my mind, she's in pain
As I'm baptized in the midnight rain
Through filthy glass, my eyes strain
Childhood ends in the midnight rain
On her face, a crimson stain
As I'm baptized in the midnight rain
Her death is etched upon my brain
Childhood ends in the midnight rain

The floor is filthy where she lay
The man is guilty as he walks away
What did she do to make him act this way?

A binge of visual stimulation
The beast within sends an invitation

I turn to leave as midnight arrives
I'll never forget the look in her eyes
Instinctively, I wave goodbye

Ended by sinister motivations
A life devoid of blood circulation

(beware)
The secret place
(shattered)
Washed away
(beware)
What is to become of me?
(shattered)
I can't sleep, it's all I dream

I remember when she was slain
Watched it happen in the midnight rain
Echos of her shrieks drive me insane
She dies everytime in the midnight rain
The path to home, an endless chain
Watched it happen in the midnight rain
Her bludgeoned body shall forever remain
She dies every time in the midnight rain

She dies every time in the midnight rain
