Lyrics

All I heard was the sound of fish who'd drowned
All I saw was the inside of my eyelids
All I said fell short of reaching open ears

Words floating, clouding the view
'See no, hear no, speak no evil'
Leaves you deaf, dumb and blind,
Because the bad is all you'll find
A deeply heart-felt goodbye to the part of me that died
When I decided to put others before me,
Yes, my heart fell asleep - boredom and fatigue
I always said I wanted to die smiling,
To pretend I'm at peace
Now from my corpse beams a frigid, blank grin
And once hopeful eyes are sunken in

Like a lullaby to the cradle is the eulogy to the casket
All my flaws swept under the table
To grieve the porcelain doll that was me

Their solemn songs sang me to sleep as my body escaped me
Their solemn songs sang me to sleep as my body...

Such a shameful masquerade!
Fleeting, frozen minutes on display
Why is evolution such a shameful thing to say?
Can you feel your bodily decay?

Because I can sure as hell feel my brain going blank
If my body betrays me, there's pollution to thank
This condition infects my cells like it controls my mind
Internal army, defend me behind enemy lines!
Fragile vehicle of mine!
Don't abandon me yet!
There is so much to live for that we so easily forget

Fascination with the fear
The concept escapes me
All encompassing fate
How it wrenches our hearts
Torments our souls
And sings us all to sleep
To an eternal keep,
No matter what belief
It sweetly sings us all
