I can not frame, that's why I lose control
I aim, I stumble and I fall
Our adaptation can't be faithful
Your world does not attract me

This is the end, you see
There's no more truth in me
As if you would deserve it
You are my enemy

I can't ignore the way you make me bleed
I hate when you throw my thoughts against the wall
Got to wake up and make a stand
Desperation forces another mistake
I count again...
I know who's to blame
My life in vain
Who said I was sane?
I count again...
I know who's to blame
My life in vain
Who said I was sane?

Follow your instinct
It usually takes you home
Don't let these words tear you down (down)
You see me hanging by the end of the rope
I tell you...

Slow, I go
And the wait seems to be over
All that I know
Is that my life has become such a waste for you

I blame and run, sadly all too often
I dive into the day without your sympathy
I tend to try but lack the focus
Becoming a distant memory
What once was is quickly forgotten
All wrapped up inside
Delete all resemblance
I feel your relief

Slow, I go
And the wait seems to be over
All that I know
Is that my life has become such a waste for you

Follow your instinct
It usually takes you home...

Slow, I go
And the wait seems to be over
All that I know
Is that my life has become such a waste for you
Slow I go and the wait seems to be over
All that I know is that my life has become such a waste for you...

    The song is by far my favourite In Flames song. The song itself speaks about being attached and the other (whoever it maybe family, friend, lover) has detached themselves and you as the person hurt seek purpose and when were lost we use our "instinct" but all you can find is pain knowing that "my life was a waste for you" this is the system he speaks of.
