slaying the wolf within lyrics – neaera

arms have stretched
beyond their reach
craving for a false perfection
safe
under self-deception’s wing
craving for a false protection

illusion is solace
reflection is pain

nothing loved – nothing lost
nothing tried – nothing lost

i called on despair to guide me
summoned the cold again
i bit from the grapes
of seduction
because reflection is pain

this is my wasteland
empire without a king
where resignation rules
slaying the wolf within

nothing loved – nothing lost
nothing tried – nothing lost

illusion is knowledge!
rest in peace!
illusion is solace!
rest in peace!

i called on despair to guide me
summoned the cold again
i bit from the grapes
of seduction
because reflection is pain!

this is my wasteland
empire without a king
where resignation rules
slaying the wolf within

i would rather sense
nothing at all
than sense
what is true

/ neaera lyrics
