Evanescence – Sweet Sacrifice lyrics

It's true, we're all a little insane.
But it's so clear,
Now that I'm unchained.

Fear is only in our minds,
Taking over all the time.
Fear is only in our minds
But it's taking over all the time.

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
You know you live to break me.
Don't deny sweet sacrifice.

One day
I'm gonna forget your name,
And one sweet day,
You're gonna drown in my lost pain.

Fear is only in our minds,
Taking over all the time.
Fear is only in our minds
But it's taking over all the time.

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
And oh you love to hate me, don't you, honey?
I'm your sacrifice.

(I dream in darkness
I sleep to die,
Erase the silence,
Erase my life.)

Do you wonder why you hate? (Our burning ashes,
Blacken the day)
Are you still too weak to survive your mistakes? (A world of nothingness,
Blow me away.)

You poor sweet innocent thing.
Dry your eyes and testify.
You know you live to break me.
Don't deny.
Sweet sacrifice.

    To me, this song sounds like it's about a past relationship she had with a guy who wanted to play the victim. The line " you poor sweet innocent thing you dry your eyes" sounds sarcastic, like oh, poor you, never mind me and my feelings. The song is good to sing and to vent to. Amy Lee is pretty good at writing songs to vent frustrations she has in relationships.
