Sitting in the dark,
I can't forget.
Even now,
I realize the time
I'll never get.
Another story
Of the Bitter Pills of Fate.
I can't go back again.
I can't go back again
But you asked me
To love you and I did.
Traded my emotions
For a contract to commit.
And when I got away,
I only got so far.
The Other Me Is Dead.
I hear his voice inside my head
We were never alive,
And we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive
With Dead Memories in my heart.
You told me to love you
And I did.
Tied my soul into a knot
And got me to submit.
So when I got away,
I only kept my scars.
The Other Me Is Gone.
Now I don't know where I belong
We were never alive,
And we won't be born again.
But I'll never survive
With Dead Memories in my heart.
Dead Visions in your Name.
Dead Fingers in my Veins.
Dead Memories in my Heart

    for me, it about learning to forget someone, and learning to move on.
    i feel this way now, i keep listening to this song so much its crazy how it describes perfectly how i feel right now about my ex. i gave him everything only to be letdown, we tried it agian, and it happended agian and he asks me to one more time give him a chance, and now i see that we never had anything real from the get go, and anyother tries would be in vain. you cant revive somthing that was never alive...
    but finally figuing this out, it was to late, i had allready given, and now theres so much i lost, rightnow, i know i've got to learn to letgo and move on, but im still very hurt, so i cant help but to feel bitter dislike for the one i love...

    dead memories is simply a metaphor for saying The memories you gave me no longer affect me.
    Simply put
    Dead Memories=Memories he no longer cares about

    well considering that he was married to Scarlett Stone and I believe they had a kid together and then divorced... and now he's married again... i'm guessing this is about his ex... think about it... " you asked me to love you and i did traded my emotions for a contract to commit. and when i got away i only got so far. the other me is dead." i understand that some of you may not have children, but when you have kids with someone, no matter what happens to you as a couple there is never any escape from that person no matter how far you go, a child is for life, much more permanent than marriage... i honestly think this song is about that ordeal...
