Hello, let me introduce you to
The characters in the show
One says yes, one says no
Decide - which voice in your head you can keep alive

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me on canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
Wear my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
I dare you tell me
I dare you to

Hello, are you still chasing
The memories, in shadows
Some stay young, some grow old
Come alive, there are thoughts unclear
You can never hide

Even in madness, I know you still believe
Paint me on canvas so I become
What you could never be

I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
Wear my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
I dare you tell me
I dare you to

Hello
Hello...
I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
Wear my soul and call me a liar
I dare you to tell me to walk through fire
I dare you tell me
I dare you to
Hello...
Hello...
I dare you tell me
I dare you to
I dare you tell me
I dare you to

    I only really have an insight on the 'i dare you to tell me to walk through fire, wear my soul and call me a liar' line- i think it's saying "i dare you to try and be me- try and go through what i do. "
    But maybe i'm wrong. That's just what i like to think about it, and the point of music is you can interpret it however you want, right?
    I love this song and this band!

    Maybe is about our conscience, about the decisions we made by ourselves or because we were dare to do so. It's a good song!

    I really like that song, it's, dunno, I just like it, but I'm somehow not able to make any sense out of it, no idea what it is about, I like it anyway

    Favorite lines: "Even in madness I know you still believe/ Paint me on canvas so I become/ What you could never be." I can't explain why I like them so much, but it seems pretty self explanatory.
