Reveal your source to me
Hold your hands out for me

To withdraw them in time
The reasons become obscured

These scars in my heart
Prove my undying affection
The memories still so fresh
Remind me of my infection

Heal not the wounds on me
Let them remind of you

These marks in my mind
Provide my eternal damnation
The vile darkest within
Directs me to my destruction

Heal not the pain in me
Let it remind of you

To withdraw everything in time
The reasons become obscured

The cruelty in my heart
Pulls me in to oblivion
The memories, turned to dark,
Deny me from salvation

Forever broken trust
Excuses, lies and deception
The memories turn to dust
And truth is just an illusion, for me!

    General CommentThis song is about self-destruction and the will to hurt forever, instead of being freed of your pain and burden, because that very same agony defines who you are. If you take the pain and the sadness away, you are left with nothing and you are a stranger even to yourself. It's better to suffer than not be who you are, or at least who you think you should be. In the end, all these things will just leave you with the taste of ashes in your mouth, so you (at least temporarily) cast away all the memories, thoughts and truths you held within and you succumb to total darkness and chaos, maybe to emerge from it as a new man. Or not emerge at all, which is also just as fine.
