    Hey everyone, I've been listening to Sanctuary and Nevermore for years, and this has been messing with my mind for a while now. I thought it would be a good idea to post here for help.

    What I got so far is:

    I come to you in dreams and drill you slowly
    I give the gift of (secret?) sex to you

    I am incubus, obsessed by lust
    No escape or sanctuary found

    Nightmares in the dark (that penetrate you?)
    I manifest desire in the night
    Copulation burning deep inside you
    Endless love is dripping down your thighs

    I am incubus, obsessed by lust
    No escape or sanctuary found
    Incubus, one (fatal thrust?)
    Will make you feel the fire (in my grind?)

    Writhing , sweating, flesh surrounds your body
    Scream in pain, but nothing you can do
    I suck your mind, your blood (I end up cumming?)
    (I was?) thrashing, tearing you in two

    I am incubus, obsessed by lust
    No escape or sanctuary found
    Incubus, one (fatal thrust?)
    Will make you feel the fire in (my grind?)


    Any help will be appreciated.

    The main chorus is,
    "I am incubus, obsessed by lust.
    No escape or sanctuary found."

    Second line is imo "I give the gift of sacred sex to you."

    "Copulation burning deep inside you."

    "Endless love is dripping down your thighs."

    "Writhing, sweating flesh surrounds your body."

    It sounds like he says "I suck your mind, your blood I end up cumming." but I can't be sure, definitely says "cumming" though.

    Then it sounds like "Lions thrashing, tearing you in two." but again, can't be sure.

    To my ears you got the rest correct, just need to figure out the "suck your mind" and "tearing you in two" ones I pointed out I guess.

    The second line now makes sense thanks to you. Same about the parts with "copulation", "endless love" and "writhing". "I end up cumming" makes more sense than anything else I thought, but it still doesn't sound very clear.

    I don't think it's "Lions" but I'm trying to find something that makes more sense than "I was". Thanks though, this helped a lot.

    Thank god that was just a demo. Those are the kinds of lyrics friends and I would write in high school, and almost always as a parody.

    But hey, at least the vocals and song sounded unmistakably Sanctuary (and good). That actually sounds like one of the thrashiest songs they've done too.

    Also, to me it just sounds like he is saying "I am thrashing, tearing you in two".

    His cock in her pussy is pretty deep. That's the kind of depth I can get behind.

    I don't really hear "I am". It sounds more like what CASSETTEISGOD said.
    I think I can hear an "s" somewhere in that word. But to be honest "Lions" doesn't really make sense to me.

    "I am an Incubus, here to give you sacred sex, and my lions get the leftovers!"
