Lyrics to 3. Introspection I

Verse
I see you’re down you know you can always confide in me
Over your head in haze, I will always reflect the true story
The picture that I see may not be complete but just the same
Since you don’t open up, I’ll start, it’s a part of our game

The one I see before me is lost, it’s not a pretty sight
A living dead, a ghost, a black hole starving for some light
I see you feel ignored, exploited, always out of breath
I see you feel damaged, depressed, contemplating death

It’s too hard on your nerves to recall who you must be
The way you must behave to please, please everyone you see
You don’t know who you are, you just try to fit their scheme
You even let your mind become slave, slave to their dream
Looking for advice it’s about time you found

Chorus
Another you – the real you
Afraid of the way they will see
The one who hides inside
Another you – let them see
The flame in your heart
Shine
Only you can end your misery

Lyrics to 5. Introspection II

Verse
I see you feel restrained, mechanized, dehumanized
I see you feel estranged, incomplete, dissatisfied
Anything for a refuge, an island for your mind, a flight, a break
No amount of diversion or substance will ever dissolve the lake

Low confidence, you can’t make a move without a guide
Right now should you laugh or cry ? Live or die ? Can’t even decide ?
The choice is so easy if only through my eyes for once you’d see
You can break down your wall or endure all that will be

You wanted advice ?
It’s about time you showed

Chorus
Another you – the true you
Afraid of the way they will see
The one who hides inside
Another you – let them see
The flame in your heart
Shine
If you try you can end your misery
