"Are You Playing Dead" as written by Josef John W Peters, Jona Weinhofen, Kevin Robert Cameron, Sean Robert Kennedy and Michael Crafter....
Erasing every memory I have of you
I hide the pictures away from me
Are you happy with what you have done
Throw away the future that you have created

I cannot erase you

A vision of
Of perfection
Pull out my eyes
Cut through my heart

As these hearts are the
Difference between me and you

Out of the darkness you
Became the lowest immortal
The ash felt is my bed,
These broken foundations in my head

Free yourself, Free your mind. Free yourself
As you are captured, sold for spare parts

A vision of
Of perfection
Pull out my eyes
Cut through my heart

Burn out my eyes

    My InterpretationAs @Carporeal mentioned it is about the loss of friend or a loved one. Given the emotion directed at the person I'd suggest it was a loved one (esp. lines such as:

    "As these hearts are the
    Difference between me and you"

    and

    "I hide the pictures away from me"

    Those sort of lines suggest a loved one to me more so than a friend. The loved one has obviously hurt their feelings and they are letting us know about it. Not an overly original theme or lyrics, but nice breakdown and strong enough in what became a very overcrowded genre.
