I loved you too much at that time that's all I did
but already I'm tired of looking at you someone else is in my arms

now my love becomes nothing hatred wells up inside me
I want to tear it all down my selfishness, too, do you like it?

more than words, much more I wanted
just your body was what I wanted

a lone pierrot performing before the mirror
softly comes before me to say
is it me or is it her who makes you suffer?
all alone I'm whispering

by the time I realised it, I had hurt you
we don't understand each other, but I'm here

a lone pierrot performing before the mirror
softly comes before me to say
is it me or is it her who makes you suffer?
all alone I'm whispering

that the end should be like this so much pain, I can barely feel a thing
before my eyes you scream with laughter as you stare at the red razor

    General CommentI like the video but that one part where the girl rips her eye out creeps me out. I can't believe I can still watch Obscure and not freak out

    General CommentObscure, is basically your run of the mill horror film techniques and computer animation. Not that it wasn't done spectacularly, but it's like everyone has seen a dummy body with fake blood before.

    The ripping the eye out thing is disturbing. *shivers* gah..reminded me of that horrible scene from Hostel. You know, the one where..and the guy has to cut her eye out...ehhh. Now that is disgusting.
