I'm searching for answers
cause something's not right.
I follow the signs,
I'm close to the fire.
I fear that soon you'll reveal
your dangerous mind.

Chorus:
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I fear your smile and the promise inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I fear your presence, I'm frozen inside.

I'm searching for answers
not questioned before.
The curse of awareness,
there's no peace of mind.
As your true colours show
a dangerous sign.

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I see the truth that you've buried inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
There is no mercy, just anger I find.
I just have to know, while I still have time.
Do I have to run, or hide away from you?

It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
I see the truth that you've buried inside.
It's in your eyes, what's on your mind.
There is no mercy, just anger I find.

Repeat chorus

... I find

    General CommentI don't think this song has to be limited specifically to a woman in love; it sounds like it fits just as well to the close relationship of two friends or siblings. It sounds like one of them cares so much about the other that they don't want to realize the darkness inside them, but they are aware of it deep down and are afraid that they're right.

    In any case, it's a great song. I love the despairing aspect of it. ;3

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who seems ok, but has this dark side that sometimes shows through.

    General CommentI think it could be about a woman who begins to fear her boyfriend (or something similar). That this boyfriend would reveal his dangerous mind if she would try to leave him or something like that.

    General CommentI'm sorry, but why does every first comment have to be "why has no one else commented?" Someone has to be the first...
    Anyway, soulslayer is on the right track, its about someone you thought you knew but are becoming afraid of, seeing the little signs that they could be violent, vindictive, or the like if pushed.

    General Commentsong's lyrics are a little off, first verse is missing a part, and goes like this:

    I'm searching for answers
    cause something's not right
    I'll follow the signs
    I'm close to the fire

    and the last verse is not "So I have to run, or hide away from you?" it is:

    "Do I have to run, or hide away from you?"

    very close tho :) anyways, awesome song, like practically all the others

    General Commentthis song always makes me think of my ex-boyfriend Alexei. I think it means that the singer is saying that although she loves the guy, she knows that he has a dark, dangerous side to him that scares her because she never knows if he will hurt her. "I’m searching for answers
    Not questioned before" suggests that maybe she wants to find out what is going on inside his head and wants to understand him better...

    General CommentFor me, this song tells a story of a woman whose fallen in love all too soon. A person who was so caught up in the romance and swept away by someone, that now they're discovering the true, darker side of that person.

    "As your true colors show, a dangerous sign."

    "See the truth that you've buried inside."

    I always invision a woman whose fallen head over heels for a seriel killer and is now discovering his dark secret.
