Sonata Arctica – Replica lyrics

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the meaning of this all.
Remember me? Before the war?
I'm the man who lived next door.
Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of what I used to be.
It's easier if you don't see standing on my own two feet.
I'm taller when I sit here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me heart of steal, the kind them bullets cannot see, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill the hole in me.
I had no name, last December, Christmas Eve I can't remember.
I was in a constant pain, I saw your shadow in the rain.
I painted all your pigeons red, I wish I had stayed home instead.

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me...

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over?
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over?

Raising from the place I've been, I try to keep my home base clean.
Now I'm here and walk the path to leave.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a silent dream.
No-one places blame on me.
Nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm replica of...

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm a replica

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm replica of me..

I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the meaning of this all.
Remember me? Before the war?
I'm the man who lived

    Well, obviously this song is about war and dealing with the ptsd (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) afterward. It seems like this man is now empty after his experiences in the war, whether it be within his own mind or outside of it. "I tried so hard to obey the law and see the meaning of this all," would make the listener think that the man in the song is now a deserter, coming home before his time. "I fall asleep and dream a dream. I'm floating in a silent dream. No one places blame on me," sounds as though there is something that he did wrong. Possibly allowing his men to be killed? He is having a hard time with dealing with his experiences, as stated before, and he now feels as though he is hollow and all meaning has been taken from him in one way or another. A very good song.
