The Dead Skin (Sonata Arctica)

It's me I hate, not you at all I am my own medicine, Turned into a poison I think I gave you a lot, And not enough... I know Tortured myself, same as you, Without losing my sanity. Where's my applause? I see no reason to live in Hell. How can life make me feel so incomplete? I had a weakness and my walls came down My tears won't reach the ground Burn my new wound I know I cannot feel regret for anything If I was numb, I'd end this once and for all I feel the burn, still... I cannot face this day, my guards are down I cannot love myself... weak, sad clown I see myself, my fading color I see no hope there... Where I always used to... I fear your words, the things they mirror Maybe that is all I am, just a reflection... please help me.. I see no reason to live in Hell When you smile, you make me feel incomplete But it's all ending, the clock's rewinding We don't mean anything to me. You think? I killed this silence for us to make things right The words are loaded. Once connected, One torso, one head One solid reason, the pain... If love's the neck, kept us together, and apart... Now it's broken... There is no cast, no real salvation When it is broken, it will stay that way Believe me when I say this I would not if I did not care Tears don't mean anything If we don't know when we're sorry No one will win today we can't play this game... this way We cannot soar and still stay on the ground Don't wanna see me, hear me, hate me... "Hate, hate, hate" Jealousy's a phantom, Something that was never, ever meant to find me But now its pale green eyes have destroyed everything You know how it must hurt, and I know, There is nothing you've done to deserve this. Apology's a policy, Sometimes it really has to be, it's kept me afloat thus far... This sure nuf's one nice loose noose, perfect times... Are we happy in this hell? Is there someone who can measure... Whose pain is bigger? It all has ended, the clock's rewinded. We don't mean anything to me. You think? I killed this silence for you to end the night The words are loaded Unprotected, one torso, no head One valid reason, the life's suspended If love's the neck that kept us together, and apart... Now it's broken... There's no cast, no real solution When it is broken, it will stay that way Believe me when I say this I would not if I did not care Who needs who, when and what the hell for? Who wants to suffer and be hardcore? And who's strong enough to peel off the dead skin... I cannot face this day, my guards are down.
