Like a knife in sheep's clothing 
My pain found pleasure in my sorrow 
I crave the taste of revenge 
As blood drips 
From the tip of that knife
I thought the warm steel 
Had been submerged 
In thy enemy's flesh and slightly 
Chipped away at bone 
I licked off my successes 
And tasted my own ignorance 
Like a fool, 
In heat
