Lost inside the system, locked away without a key No one will ever miss a menace to society A gross lack of potential, bad decisions made in spite A touchy hairpin trigger and such a wasted life Trying to break the mold of a broken family Fight against your failure, and living on his knees Guilty of a crime of nonconformity A hanging judge and jury handing down the penalty A lethal injection, now they watch the body jerk Exterminate the problem, except it didn't work No vital sign of life, they declared it wasn't there Coroner never checked, because he didn't fucking care Passing off the body, they all believe he died Starting up the hearse, now for a final drive Like whistling past a graveyard, when walking by at night It's a fatal illusion to think that evil never dies In a darkened mortuary, reeking of formaldehyde Aroused from deadly slumber, something opened up his eyes Spilling all their blood was a promise that he'd keep Hate so strong revived him from a deep necrotic sleep Clawing away the casket lid until his fingers bleed He grabbed a knife and set out on a vivisection spree A butcher, hell bent, massacring each one with his blade From the first one to the last, he dispatched them to the grave It's a fatal illusion It's a fatal illusion Evil never dies It never dies
