"Silhouette of a Dancer" as written by and David M Martijn/wessels Westerholt....
My skin still burns
All the places you've touched
So aware
Leave no place for hiding
Not last night, not this time

I close my eyes so the world can't see me
And draw the silhouette of a dancer in my head
I can't look through your eyes, but my mind betrays mine
Should I starve unmarked or confess to my blindness

My eyes still hurt
Fighting, chasing, chasing lights
As they form
Silhouettes behind me
Let them go, this time

Waiting for a change
I can't fight these chains everyday
I bleed to avoid the pain
Everyday I fade a little more

I close my eyes so the world can't see me
And draw the silhouette of a dancer in my head
I can't look through your eyes, but my mind betrays mine
Should I starve unmarked or confess to my blindness

    General CommentI'm not really sure what it's about, but my interpretation is that you do something wrong, and everyone knows what you've done, and you're embarrassed by it. So you try to fade away ('And draw the silhouette of a dancer in my head') but it doesn't work.

    My InterpretationI think the song is about a person, who is dead.
    During the whole song the lyrical character is wondering whether or not being with his true love. In the chorus the main character (it can be both man or woman, since its a duet song between Charlotte and Otto) explains that he/she is going through a huge pain and suffering every single day and only when he/she closes her/his eyes, the silhouette of the dancer appears and they get rid of the pain.
    In the end, the grand finale of the song give us the final clue we need, that the main character actually attempts the suicide and go to his/her loved one in the other life.
