[Reason] Think hard, you’re lying here in a hospital bed
Disregard the emotions inside your head
Concentrate on the real world beyond your mind
It's not too late to leave your burdens behind
[Fear] We won't let you go
Take you down below
Dark crypts of your soul
Locked inside your head
You're better off dead!

[Agony] Locked away, she lives in isolation
It's been that way since he has gone
She’s been through a life of deprivation
She depends on you, her only son
[Passion CHORUS] She won't let you go
Keep you down below
Dark crypts of your soul
Locked inside your head
You're better off dead

[Agony] Where are you, can't you hear her calling?
Nothing you can do, you have no time
There is no one there to catch her, now she's falling
Why should you care? You’re doing fine
[Passion CHORUS]

[Reason] Now she's at rest, she finally found her peace
There's no need to blame yourself
You must let go or the pain will never cease
It's time to crawl out of your shell
Your mother died the day your father left
A part of you died as well
Feelings of guilt will haunt you 'til the end
You must fight hard to break this spell
But it hurts…

[Fear] You hear her voice from beyond her grave
“Where were you son, when I needed you?
Is this your thanks for all the warmth I gave?
Did you forget what I been through?”
Then you hear his voice, cold and merciless
“You worthless fool, you let her die!”
And deep within yourself you must confess
Your ways cannot be justified

[Pride CHORUS] By now you realize you have to be relentless to survive
Repress your memories, bury all emotions and thrive!
It's your life!

[Reason] Now she's at rest, she found her peace
[Fear] You hear her voice from the grave
[Reason] You must let go or the pain won't cease
[Fear] “Is this your thanks for all I gave?”
[Reason] A part of you died as well
[Fear] “You worthless fool, you let her die”
[Reason] It's time to crawl out of your shell
[Fear] Your ways cannot be justified
[Pride CHORUS]

    General CommentIn this song i think that the 'me' character is thinking about the memorie of his mother and how he wasn't there for her because he was too busy with his career and she eventually died all alone.

    I think it's really good how if you listen carefully to the fear and reason bit you can hear sirens in the background.
