You're making me doubt myself
This feeling I know so well
Visions of naked greed
Are visions I just don't need

Far deep, phantom seeking, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Far from living, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

The texture of moistened skin
All over this skin I've been
Skin that's been angel stretched
No muscle or excess flesh

Far deep, phantom seeking, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Far from living, I can see
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

You're making me doubt myself
This feeling I know so well
Feeling of naked lust
This feeling I love so much

Far deep, phantom seeking oh you are
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart
Phantom breathing oh you are
The nude that broke my heart
The nude that broke my heart

Upon the wall, the life is drawn
The love is lost, the truth will fall
The sinking ship, the sinking soul
The final fear
The picture on the wall

    General CommentAmazing song. it's about the singer's heart breaking as he sees perfection in a nude painting, and realizes that he could never live up to, or be worthy of that kind of flawlessness.

    General Commenti basically agree with the previous interpretation. i think its about seeing perfection in a work of art or imaginary person (like a dream girl in one's own mind) and being so in love with this concept of perfection that nothing else will do, reality is ever good enough, but the fantasy is something which can never be achieved. and the intense longing for this non-existent thing is crushing.
