Found a way
To rid myself clean of pain
And a fever that's
Been haunting me
Has gone away

Looking through my window
I seem to recognise
All the people passing by
But I'm alone
And far from home
Nobody knows me

Never heard me say goodbye
Never shall I speak to anyone again
All days are in darkness
And abiding my time
Once I am sure of my task I will rise
Again...

    Bu şarkı milyonlarca ufak iğne gibi batıyor sürekli.. Hiç bitmeyen bir acı,sonsuz yalnızlık,sonsuz melankoli,tüm geçmişinin boşa gittiğini ve ne kadar çaresiz olduğunu anlatıyor..

    This is about a man who is running away from something that haunts him. He found a way not to suffer more. Running away from everyone and everything, he isolated himself from the pain.
    He looks at everyone and, how he is alone. He wants someone to talk to him and wants to believe that he is nothing different from the others. He doesn't want to feel alone. But he is far away from everyone he knows. And nobody knows how he is suffering or how he is alone.
    Because of that, he says to himself that he never said goodbye to the ones he loved, and that he'll return. But he needs to stay in the darkness, suffer alone and think. Think very deep what is expected from him and what he wants of his life. Only then, he'll return.
