Let go of the mystery
And retrace all the steps where you've been
And forget all the history
And start over again

For as you can see, it's up to me
For as you can see, it's all on me

I can't erase it because it's with me every day
The strangest feeling that never goes away
And I have to face it because I can't walk away
And I'm determined to go until I break

Let go all confusion
and forget the hate in their eyes
And convince yourself it's illusion
find a reason to survive

For as you can see, it's up to me
For as you can see, it's all on me

I can't erase it because it's with me every day
The strangest feeling that never goes away
And I have to face it because I can't walk away
And I'm determined to go until I break

So maybe I can't be you but I choose not to be
And maybe I don't need you to show me how to see
What if the sky fell and time slipped away
If these are my last words then here's what i say

I can't erase it because it's with me every day
The strangest feeling that never goes away

I can't erase it because it's with me every day
The strangest feeling that never goes away
And I have to face it because I can't walk away
And I'm determined to go until I break

To go until I break
Until I break
To go until I break

    General CommentI've never heard this song before, but I definitely love the lyrics. Sounds like maybe he's depressed, but doesn't want help. He just wants to keep going until he breaks. And he'll be okay with it if it ends that way.

    General Commenti think its about someone critcized or said something about him and he explained to him whats going on and how you dont understand. its also saying no matter how much he goes through he wont stop untill he breaks. like me. the is on of my 4 favorite song ever.

    General CommentI think this song is about learning to accept that life doesn't always go the way you think it should, and you don't always get what you deserve. And if you're going through something difficult in your life, most people just want someone to help them, or someone to save them. I think that the person in this song wants the opposite of that, they want to deal with it on their own. Like some people say that they'd rather feel pain than feel nothing, the narrator decided that it's better to deal with their problems on their own, even if they end up breaking. That's just my thoughts, either way it's an extremely well writen song and really makes you think, but then again thats how all of Brent Smith's songs are for me

    Lyric CorrectionUm, this song is called Breaking Inside, Shinedown have a song called Break though where the chorus goes 'I can't erase it, because it's with me every day, the strangest feeling that never goes away...'
