Type O Negative – Anesthesia lyrics

Like a flash of light in an endless night
Life is trapped between two black entities
'Cause when you trust someone
Illusion has begun
No way to prepare
Impending despair

Did one say so cruel
'Tis better to love and lose
Ignorance is bliss
Wish not knew your kiss
So many times been burned
This lesson goes unlearned
Remember desire only fuels the fire

Betwixed birth and death
Every breath regret
I pity the living
Envy for the dead
Emotionally stunned
In defense - I'm numb
I'd rather not care then to be aware
Be scared

I don't need love

Are a thousand tears worth a single smile?
When you give an inch, will they take a mile?
Longing for the past but dreading the future
If not being used, well then you're a user and a loser

World reknowned failure at both death and life
Given nothingness, purgatory blight
To run and hide, a cowardly procedure
Options exhausted, except for anesthesia

I don't feel anything
I don't need anything
I don't need love

    From the highest of the highs, to the lowest of the lows, he was sick of it. Love always ends in hate, trust in betrayal, and everything falls apart. He wanted to disconnect, to dislocate from it all. To feel nothing, like a type of apathetic, nihilist buddhist enlightenment. The lyrics speak to me and crystallize those moments in life where you just want to hit the escape button. He finally escaped though, right? Although what irony awaited him in the afterlife.
