My hands feel cold,
Oh what has become of me.
The strings you hold,
No longer control me.

Deep inside I feel no pain,
In the sky I see no rain.
Tell me why I feel insane…
In my heart there is no pulse,
All the friends I’ll miss the most.
Tell me why I feel so sane.
And from my fears I’m retreating,
Because that is what it’s like,
When your heart stops beating…

When the lights go out in the moonlit sky,
I see no stars and I want to cry.
Each time I wake is another ache,
But I can’t get up for how hard I try.
Then the questions fade and answers lie,
When you’re feeling trapped and want to fly.
Each time at stake is another mistake,
But I can’t cheer up for how hard I try.

Deep inside I feel no pain,
In the sky I see no rain.
Tell me why I feel insane…
In my heart there is no pulse,
All the friends I’ll miss the most.
Tell me why I feel so sane.
And from my fears I’m retreating,
Because that is what it’s like,
When your heart stops beating…

(MUSIC BREAK)

[softly & music fade]
Deep inside I feel no pain,
In the sky I see no rain.
Tell me why I feel insane…
In my heart there is no pulse,
All the friends I’ll miss the most.
Tell me why I feel so sane.
And from my fears I’m retreating,
Because that is what it’s like,
When your heart stops beating…
