My mind is under an attack,
although no one sees
My past is pounding in the back of my memories
It's always there to poison my mind with all I do
Feelings I know so well seem to come back
as if nothing's ever changed

Fear was one of the reasons to crawl away into a world I lost
I know the rules,I play the game
but somehow it always stays the same
In spite of my will,in spite of my hope,in spite of it all

So for those who believe in this life,
spin right on this circle-must be round
Every turn has its vortex,you'll drown if nobody warns you
and shows you another circle of life

Nothing will change,
nothing is done for the victim I am forced to remain
Cause these days make you feel,and you are,on your own

Study,work hard,marry,reproduce and become the perfect model
Can you stand the test of time if life is a vicious circle
without the mirror of another path

So for those who believe in this life
spin right on the circle-must be round
Every turn has its vortex,you'll drown if nobody warns you
and shows you another circle of life

    General CommentThis song is the daughter's final words on her life. She is warning everyone that the way to are raised will affect you in the future. She says that no matter what she does there is no way she can break from the circle of abuse that was ingrained in her.

    My InterpretationI dislike the conclusion that homicide/suicide were involved. Invisible Circles is about the intergenerational transferal of trauma through familial lines. Life's Vortex is the daughter's newfound revelation hat there is no escape from the psychological injury that occurs from repetitive abuse and trauma The behavior learn is difficult to unlearn unless we have people watching our back or take the time to learn healthier forms of conduct.
