Don't hear, don't deem
Drowning before you dive
Don't care, commit
To your self destruction drive
I kiss the ground
With love beyond forever
Flip off the sky
With bleeding fingers till I die

Enemy, take one a good look at me
Eradicate what you will always be
Tainted flesh, polluted soul
Through a mirror I behold
Throw a punch
Shards bleed on the floor
Tearing me apart but
I don't care anymore
Should I regret or ask myself
Are you dead yet?

Wake up, don't cry
Regenerate to deny
The truth, the fiction
You leave a blindfold on your eyes
Disclosure, self loathing
This time you've gone too far
Or could it be my nemesis
That you are?

Enemy, take one good look at me
Eradicate what you will always be
Tainted flesh, polluted soul
Through a mirror I behold
Throw a punch
Shards bleed on the floor
Tearing me apart but
I don't care anymore
Should I regret or ask myself
Are you dead yet?

[Laiho's solo]

Enemy, take one a good look at me
Eradicate what you will always be
Tainted flesh, polluted soul
Through a mirror I behold
Throw a punch
Shards bleed the floor
Tearing me apart but
I don't care anymore
Should I regret or ask myself
Are you dead yet?

Are you dead yet?

    During a live performance of this song he says it was written while some kind of brawl or someting was going down, all he mentioned was 3 broken bones, black eyes, and stitches. Cob rages.

    One of the shooters in columbine screamed are you dead yet? At a girl as she was bleeding out under a table. The song seems to relate to how they felt.
