«You hold the answer deep within your own mind
Consciously, you've forgotten it
That's the way the human mind works
Whenever something is too unpleasant, too shameful
For us to entertain, we reject it
We erase it from our memory
But the imprint is always there»

(Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't cry it all away)

The pain that grips you
The fear that binds you
Releases life in me
In our mutual shame we idolize
To blind them from the truth that finds a way from who we are

Please don't be afraid
When the darkness fades away
The dawn will break the silence screaming in our hearts
My love for you still grows
This I do for you
Before I try to fight the truth my final time

«We're supposed to try and be real
And I feel alone, and we're not together
And that is real»

Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

Lying beside you
Listening to you breathe
The life that flows inside of you
Burns inside of me
Hold and speak to me
Of love without a sound
Tell me you will live through this
And I will die for you
Cast me not away
Say you'll be with me
For I know I cannot bear it all alone

«You're not alone, honey
Never, never»

Can't fight it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't scream it all away
It just won't fade away

Can't wash it all away
Can't wish it all away
Can't cry it all away
Can't scratch it all away

Can't fight it all away
Can't hope it all away
Can't scream it all away
Oh, it all away
Oh, it all away

«But the imprint is always there
Nothing is ever really forgotten»

«God, please, don't hate me
Because I'll die if you do
Because I'll die if you do
Because I'll die if you do
Because I'll die if you do

Because I'll die if you do»
