Verse:

 

Memories like daggers stab with no remorse,

keep you from sleeping, they're a living force.

A super-eight movie playing over and over again,

scenes of the disaster that you once had been.

 

Pre-Chorus:

 

Who was the stranger who looked like you?

Doing and acting things you'd never, ever do?

 

Verse:

 

A specter in your brain who haunts you forever,

who won't let you go--not again? No never.

You were the Wicker Man, burning so bright,

a time when the real you was nowhere in sight.

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Chorus:

 

 

Nobody would believe it but The Shadow knows

You sag inwardly because you know how this goes.

An endless loop of pain that plays endlessly,

will never let you forget, and will never let you be

 

Verse:

 

Internal demons of a tilted yesterday,

when you disappointed yourself more than you can say.

The knife in your head twists and cuts so deep.

A collision course consolation prize that's yours to keep

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus:

 

Repeat Chorus:

 

END
