It took a lot to sell my soul,
The same thing happened yesterday
I paid my price, then felt alive
But no pulse is within my veins.

Never will I lie and say I'm still alive
Come what may to me there's something on my side

I'm left with heart, cause inside me's gone
Compulsion drives me anyway
I play my part, and my part's large
Makes me stronger every day

Never will I lie and say I'm still alive
Come what may to me there's something on my side

One year and it ain't so bad
I'm trying to see things clearly
The clearer it gets the more I'm confused
I'm thinking more about blindness
Thinking hard about blindness
Thinking purely of blindness

There's something on my side

    I think it's somewhat related to the drug addiction.I paid my price, then felt alive
    But no pulse is within my veins. He paid the price, took the drugs, but he felt alive for just a bit.
    Compulsion drives me anyway
    I play my part, and my part's large
    Makes me stronger every day
    He tries to get rid of the addiction, playing a part in this, getting rid of the addiction.
    A year passed since he's free from the drugs, but his vision isn't clear, he got used to seeing the world through a drugged up vision. Now he's thinking of the blindness the drugs gave him. He thinks about it more and more until he thinks purely of the drugs, he's perhaps trying to lapse back to that scenario. there's something on his side that pulls him back.
