I, lost all I had (one April day),
I, turned to my friends (nothing to see),
I, wrote down a name (and read it twice),
I, wallow in shame.

I, said that I love (eternal schemes),
I, cling to my past (like childish dreams)
I, promised to stay (and dwell my grief)
I, went far away.

I see blood spilled 'neath my feet,
Lead me through wastelands of deceit,
Rest your head now, don't you cry,
Don't ever ask the reason why

Kept inside our idle race
Ghost of an idol's false embrace
Rest your head now don't you cry
Don't ever ask the reasons why.

    First of all, these lyrics are wrong.
    I lost all I had (that april day)
    I turn to my friends (nothing to say).
    I promised to stay (and held my breath)
    so yea, theres that, and this song, I believe, is about going crazy, killing your loved one, and losing your friends and family because of it.
