In the corner of your eye,
I can see into your mind
A shadow beneath your smile,
something hidden deep inside
Silently you wait for someone to see you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left their lies like scars underneath your skin
The one you're hiding in
The one you're supposed to live in

And you gaze up at the sky,
as the clouds are passing by
And you wonder for a while,
what it would be like to die
Silently you wish for someone to save you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left their lies like scars underneath your skin
The one you're hiding in
The one you're supposed to live in

But you want to be alive,
as the self-loathing subsides
And you will not be denied,
so you push their lies aside
Violently you burn for someone to feel you

Claw your flesh from off your bones
Face that fire on your own
Embrace the life you thought that you could never know
Can't erase the pain inside without a storm within
They left their lies like scars underneath your skin
The one you're hiding in
The one you're supposed to live in

    General CommentI love this song so much.. Every sentence of it means something to me.

    Obviously it's about a person that has been hurt a lot in the past by "their lies", to the point where dying doesn't seem so bad after all..
    But after all, he just wants to be saved, seen and loved.
