Fuel - Stripped Away
I must have left my soul cracked open
Like a door. . .
In the night. . .
Seizing the opportunity
While i lay there sleeping
All the beggars and thieves walked in
And they stole
All i stored inside
I woke to find
A shell of a man
And all i had once believed . . .
Stripped away . . .
Stripped away
Well i sat at Satan's table
And I drank the wine
In a feast of revelry
Till my eyes were red and swollen
And my soul was so held with stains
That just won't come clean
And i tell myself
That i am in youth
What all i could achieve
Stripped away . . .
Stripped away
Well i stared at my own reflection
But i know that those eyes can't be me
My sprit floats in desperation
On dreams like I've never seen
So i reach for you
And draw you near
And pray that you won't be. . .
Stripped away
Stripped away
