I hear sirens in my head,
As I’m wide awake, laying on my bed.
The air is thick with the smell of fear and hate.
Clean the carpet from the hypothetical blood stains.

What does it mean? I don’t understand.
Someone please tell me I am a hero.
I tremble when fate falls into my hand
And I don’t know who I am anymore,
No I don’t know who I am.

I hear laughing in my head,
How could I have thought that you were really dead?
Every move I make, you haunt me with closed eyes.
Why does this come to me as such a great surprise?

What does it mean? I don’t understand.
Someone please tell me I am awake now.
My mouth feels as dry as desert sand
And I don’t know who I am anymore,
No I don’t know who this is

This is killing me inside,
This is, this is killing me inside…

I hear voices in my head,
Why did I let myself succumb to what they said?
All this guilt and grief, it’s driving me insane,
Even after the hypothetical demon’s been slain.

What does it mean? I don’t understand.
Someone please tell me that it’s all over.
It’s turning out nothing the way I had planned,
And I don’t know who I am anymore,
No I don’t know who this is

This is killing me inside,
This is, this is killing me inside,
This is, this is killing me inside,
This is, this is killing me…
