How Long Can I Resist


[Rape II - The Assailant]

 They never see me coming
 I know their every step
 I am the perfect hunter
 They'll fall into my trap
 You're stronger than temptation
 You're a better man than that
 A game we both are playing
 She doesn't know she's in
 I count the times she passes by
 Sitting, waiting, getting closer
 Can almost feel her skin
 Will I make her mine

 How long can I resist
 No escaping this
 You'll never control
 The desire that's in me
 It's burning my soul
 It's a fire of envy

 Don't do anything
 That you might soon regret
 'Cause the mirror must still show
 A man you can respect

 A girl's just a pawn
 A means to an end
 I don't dare approach
 Never find a lover -
 Always find a friend
 The answer still is no
 The other day she talked to you
 No means no - you don't have to
 It's not a want, I have a need
 And I can feel it rise
 Past the point of no return
 Then it dies

 Please help me
 It's taking control of me
 I can't hold back much longer
 I must set it free

 How come this life's a bitch
 Why can't this break be fixed
 They always persist
 Though the thoughts are appealing
 I cannot resist them
 The siren is calling

 Beautiful - I can't escape the pull
 Unapproachable - I never get too close
 Horrible - the images I keep
 Cinema - of filth inside of me
 Undeniable - my insecurities

 Chain these hands
 Before they burn out her light
 Make it impossible
 For her to face her life
 You're stronger than temptation
 Please don't lose respect
 Up to my neck
 Sinking in this quick sand
 Begging please hear
 This last call
 From this desperate man

 The girl's just a pawn
 A means to an end
 And I don't dare approach
