  • I feel the oppression, every time that I fake
    How time is changing what I am
    I look in the mirror, I don't know what I see
    Where is the man that I was been

    Sometimes I feel
    That the things that I love
    Are the things that I hate
    And sometimes I learn
    That I'm torn up inside
    And the man that I am
    Is the man that I don't know

    The silence inside me, quiet and deep
    So loud in my ears, all those bleam
    Excite is counting me, paralyzing my mind
    High on the ground, I still fall

    Sometimes I feel
    That the things that I love
    Are the things that I hate
    And sometimes I learn
    That I'm torn up inside
    And the man that I am
    Is the man that I don't know

    Sometimes I feel
    That the things that I love
    Are the things that I hate
    And sometimes I learn
    That I'm torn up inside
    And the man that I am
    Is the man that I don't know

    The silence, so quiet and deep Writer/s: MAT SINNER, RALF SCHEEPERS, STEFAN LEIBING, THOMAS NAUMANN-PHILIPP
