Lust

Fake, not real
Nothing but sex appeal
This is not love you feel
Nothing but a heart made of steel

(Chorus)
The charade of infatuation
Played over and over and over again
This merry-go-round of lies
That never seems to end

Lead by misleading instincts
The foundation of our existence
Behold what is loved and what is lost
The price of love is the cost of this lust

Deception stretching your smile from ear to ear
The face I once longed for I am beginning to fear
Feelings once exposed no longer to be shown
For this legerdemain fools me
I?d rather be on my own

(Chorus)
The charade of infatuation
Played over and over and over again
This merry-go-round of lies
That never seems to end

Your cold, old heart continues aging
More and more with the tears you are craving
Search for another life to impale with your shards of deceit
Move on to another helpless being
As it is I that you cannot defeat

(Chorus)
The charade of infatuation
Played over and over and over again
This merry-go-round of lies
That never seems to end

Kill me, kill me, over again
My happiness stolen by this deadly sin
The deadly sin of lust
No more, is my trust

Tell the audience how this makes you feel. A history lesson doesn't compare to raw emotion. Show, don't tell.

Good, though.
