Release me

No remnants were ever found of it
Feeling the hot bile
With every fake smile
Though no evidence was ever found
It never went away completely

I try to run from the holy sound of it
Another day gone
Another night's drawn
Dark forces pull me underground
That never went away completely

How can I feel this empty?
I will not recover this time
This loneliness is killing me

Will I never know peace of mind again
I don't believe it
I can't achieve it
I think it all is just another sign that
It never went away completely

Terror is coursing in me
Dreading the final moment
When I have to dream
And feel you die
[Death inside of me, keeps a diligent watch on everything. Keeps a terrible hold on my belief. Just waiting for the moment when I...]
In Asylum (I live a lie)
Don't you know I'm in love with you
And I wasn't ready
For Asylum (Relive a lie)
To let go, now it's dragging me
Into your grave
Your Asylum (Forgive the lie)
Overcome by the feeling
That I will get to join you in time
For the loneliness is killing me

Death's images are all around again
They're right behind me
They're going to find me
Judgement for the immortal sin
That have enveloped me completely

I know I'll never know a peaceful night again
Afraid they'll hear me
They don't fear me
Punishment for the immoral crime
The debt was never paid, completely

Terror is coursing in me
Dreading the final moment when I have to dream
And feel you die
(Death's inside of me, keeps a diligent watch on everything. Keeps a terrible hold on my belief, Just waiting for the moment when I...)
In Asylum (I live a lie)
Don't you know I'm in love with you
And I wasn't ready
For Asylum (Relive a lie)
To let go, now it's dragging me
Into your grave
Your Asylum (Forgive the lie)
Overcome by the feeling
That I will get to join you in time
For the loneliness is killing me

In the end there will be no suffering (More suffering)
In the end we will find out everything (Not anything)
In the end you may question your belief (What belief?)
In the end you will realize finally,
How you were decieved
This has gone on too long (Too long)
No more demonic dreams
Destroyer, come tonight
Because her memory is killing me

In Asylum (I live a lie)
I let go, now it's dragging me
Into your grave
For Asylum (Relive a lie)
Overcome by the feeling that
I will get to join you in time (Without you)
This world is not fulfilling me

Don't think I live in Asylum
I live a lie
Don't want to live in Asylum
I'll live a lie
Don't think I live in Asylum
I am a lie

    I watched a video interview with David Draiman just after the single was released ad he talked about how the word Asylum is a double meaning- how it's a place full of insanity, but how it's also a safe place that he felt kind of thrust into by his own grief as a coping mechanism. Definitely an extremely powerful song, and I can relate to it after the suicide of a close friend who I had feelings for.

    It's a song about how lies control us as people in this deceptive world and the truth is there to release us from the depravity of our nieve ignorance. Don't run from the holy sound. Let him find you.

    It's about an english teacher in japan that has to get up and go through the same insanity every day. :d

    I believe this song tells the story of how David was trapped in his own mind when trying to get over the death of his deceased girlfriend. References to the fear of dreaming comes from his own experiance of terrifying dreams about her. Unlike inside the fire, which deals with him trying to accept that she is dead, asylum is about him trying to move past his own psychological "asylum". Very intrecate song, truly a masterwork.
