Feeling trapped in this ratcage
There’s no way out, no escape
No sign of a labyrinth start
These walls are carved in stone
This damned link to your soul kills me
and makes me feel alive at once
Am I forced to be...
The frame that holds your soul?
Am I supposed to feel...
Connected or Condemned?
I am Connected to you
Condemned in life
I’d like to run away and hide
I am Connected to you
I am Condemned to this life
I’d like to break away and run
I´m Spending time with myself
Looking through this mirror
A strange silhouette is taking shape inside of me
And now I find out
This whole reflection makes no sense at all
But I’m too shy to try
Now everything starts to come to life
Tearing me apart
Run away and hide
