Self vs Self

Album: Immersion (2010)
  • If I struggle a lifetime,
    What would my body be?
    An empty shell,
    On what a demon fed

    Could be a heavy burden,
    To stay true to your words
    Speak up,
    I wanna silence everything

    If I got no plan,
    Doesn't mean that I get what I want for free
    If I got no meaning,
    Would you force me to a place where I make sense?
    'Cause nothing lasts forever

    How do I get home?
    Everything revolves around you
    If I can't find myself?
    As you're so completely fake

    How do I get home?
    Everything revolves around you
    If even you can't help?
    Dark nights from my soul

    I deny failure,
    I Ignite
    Woe is on my misery,
    She wins all their eyes

    Realise what they find's not fate,
    This is not me, this is me
    So if I struggle a lifetime,
    What good would that do?

    If I got a plan,
    Doesn't have to stop the feeling inside
    If I do make sense,
    Would you drag me down?
    'Cause nothing lasts forever

    How do I get home?
    Everything revolves around you!
    If I can't find myself?
    As you're so completely fake!

    How do I get home?
    Everything revolves around you!
    If even you can't help?
    Dark night from my soul
