Free my mind
Heal my scars
Erase the past
Dark days to forget
And memories to last
In my heart

Free me now

Make me forget
And forgive
There's no use
To go on and live
Show me a way
To the sun

Heal my scars

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

Let my eyes take in
The beauty that's here
That's left on this earth
My ears long to hear
A melody

Give me sight

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

Poison is slowly seeping through my veins
Stealing the only dignity in me

I pick them up and let them fall
To cause your pain and hit them all
[grunts]

One more life to live is what I want

I'll take the joy away from them
See to it, they will all be damned

One more chance to heal what I have harmed

The dragon is wreak havoc in my brain
Plays my emotion, a never ending game

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

One more life to live for me

I want the night just to colour the day
The morning to chase all my nightmares away
Don't you deny that we're all human beings
We all have our flaws that can make ourself obscene

Obscene…

Give me what I want
Give me what I need right now
That's what I want
That's what I need, get it!

Dolendo novit mortalis vitam

Tell me what I want
Tell me what I need right now
That's what I want
That's all I need, cure me

Dolendo discit mori mortalis
Losers

Nothing will be forever gone
Memories will stay and find their way
What goes around will come around
Don't deny your fears
So let them go and fade into light
Give up the fight here

    Well fellas i can pretty much confirm it is about drugs. I asked the mastermind of epica himself. However it's a superb song. It reminds me of a long lost friend due to drug addiction..

    I don't think it's about drugs, i think it is about a relationship that ended on bad terms and she is now picking up the pieces knowing she will be stronger after everything and will have the memories. At least that is what i think. I found this song after someone ended a very good relationship with me. It was one of the songs i could listen to and not feel sad.

    The song is symbolic and progressive. It show the process that drug addiction can erode and consume everything that is important. When I think of the song lyrics about drug addiction, its pretty close to same as Master of Puppets. However, the twist in this song is the mortal factor. It not just about drug abuse, but when people resort to self-medication to blot out their pain. They rather face oblivion at bottom of bottle or the drugs of joints or an empty syringe. However, the type of desponancy comes from depression where this behavior cames naturally. Rather than living in torment they would be numb instead. However, as the curtain closes the narrator realizes that cure is often worse than disease itself. That as one gets entrapped, the addiction gains a life of its own, and difficult to derail. In the end, the narrator chooses life rather then descent into madness and possibly death.
