Watching your face I can't believe I'm still here
Why did these days bleed like I said
Do you want to take a long hard look back to know if I feel right now it's everything
We're the life you dreamt such a perfect day
I can almost see outside this place that I left alone too long ago
I don't like the scars how they slip away
Now I'm taking everything you have
Why can't you go away
I can't stand your face right here now
Is this the only place I know I'll hate to find out
I could never think of this end
Do you want to tell me things I don't know before I start the burning inside
We're the life you dreamt such a perfect day
I can almost see outside this place that I left alone too long ago
I don't like the scars how they slip away
Now I'm taking everything you have
Why can't you go away
I can't stand your face right here now

    General CommentThis is the story of my life. It's amazing how the words flow so perfectly with the music. Because of the "perfect days", I almost forget about my constant state of depression and the prison my mind builds itself. As far as "Why can't you go away?" goes, I don't think they are talking about a person in particular, but maybe something inside of themselves.... This is just my interpretation and i want to hear what other people think, so please post
