"Why" as written by Tobias Erik Karlsson, Araneda Rodrigo Pencheff, Amir Juan Chamdin, Araneda Luis Alberto Pencheff, G Scrappy and Michael O'neil Hall....
I am not here
I think I've never
Been here at all
Or ever will

I feel like a place
Where no one goes anymore
Why can't you see that everything's broken?
And why can't you see that my life's turned gray?

I can't believe in anything sacred
When I don't believe that I am real



It seems so bizarre
But none of this matters
Thoughts disappear and hopes have died
But now I am safe nothing can hurt me here

Why can't you see my need for forgiveness
The truth and the lies so confused as one
I can't believe in anything sacred
When I don't believe in anything

I am alone
Locked in my memories
There's nowhere left for me to hide
But I am not real

I've made all I am with lies
Why does it seem that everything's different?
And why does it seems that only you are real?
I don't believe in anything sacred
So why do I feel so damned alone?

[Chorus]

I need someone to break the silence
Screaming in my head
And in my soul

    General CommentIn all honesty, I first listened to this song when I became rather interested in Depersonalization. Granted, now I don't really care much for psychiatry, but at the time, this song really did sound like some chilling depiction of Depersonalization. I had never truly experienced it, but having researched it for a while made me feel slightly automatonic anyway.

    General CommentLyrics wise, after having parental splitage and long term relationship splitage, it's pretty fitting. Things just get to the point where they seem surreal sometimes in life, and you need one thing to cling onto to get you through.

    General CommentThis has to be one of the more depressing songs these guys have done. One of my favourites.

    General CommentFor the longest time I thought the last line in the chorus was "I dirty my soul" not "and in my soul"
