I am not alone
I live with the memories
Regret is my home
This is my true freedom
Express all the feelings of what I've become
I watch the rising sun
I hope I find some peace today

It seems I've gone away
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've really lost my way
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've...

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?

A bitter sinking feeling
Awake to the fact there's no going back
To the world in which I was living
I'm searching for something, but found less than nothing
I watch the rising sun
I hope I find some peace today

It seems I've gone away
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've really lost my way
It seems I've lost myself
It seems I've...

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?
Yeah, 'cause I'm dying to feel
What I have lost
Oh, and what I was

All my life I've waited
Endless days have taken
Taken what made me free
Years have gone, I'm broken
Left the past unspoken
Those years...
Oh, they haunt me still

Shed my skin
Oh, are you ready for me?
Or purge my love
Oh, are you ready for me?
And shed my skin
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(All my life I've waited
Endless days have taken
Taken what made me free)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Years have gone, I'm broken
Left the past unspoken
All those years, they haunt me still)
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    General CommentThis is about starting all over after life has sunk and hit the very bottom. It's about finding light in the midst of darkness to give hope and start all again.

    "Awake to the fact there's no going back
    To the world in which I was living "

    "Those years...
    Oh, they haunt me still"
    And yet he cannot forget his past...
