Lyrics

I canít remember anything
Canít tell if this is true or dream
Deep down inside I feel to scream
This terrible silence stops me

Now that the war is through with me
Iím waking up, I cannot see
That thereís not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, wake me

Back in the womb itís much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But canít look forward to reveal
Look to the time when Iíll live

Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me

Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, wake me

Now the world is gone, Iím just one
Oh God, help me Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh please, God, help me

Darkness
Imprisoning me
All that I see
Absolute horror
I cannot live
I cannot die
Trapped in myself
Body my holding cell

Landmine
Has taken my sight
Taken my speech
Taken my hearing
Taken my arms
Taken my legs
Taken my soul
Left me with life in hell
