about

The music for this song came about quite quickly, but as far as the lyrics I needed a few days. I somehow managed to start writing something that came from two angles, fiction and personal experience, and came up with partially introspective song from the mind of a monster who feels like he is less than the sum of his parts, ala a conflicted Frankenstein's monster.

lyrics

Picked up pieces scattered around me.
Some were thrown away.
Try to rebuild things as they were,
but will it work today?

Re-constitute the rusted.
Does its function remain?
Give the body time to warm up.
But will I be insane?

I forgot what living was,
And now I'm never going to be the same.
I forgot the man I am,
And now I'm stuck here trying to reclaim.
All the things I left behind,
But still they exist within my mind.

A walking corpse,
Is who I am.
Unwanted parts.

Nothing in this world is perfect,
And that goes for me.
All the faults between the seams
Are easier to see.

Is my heart still really beating?
Or is it beating me?
When will I be a real person,
Not just this forgery?

I forgot what living was,
And now I'm never going to be the same.
I forgot the man I am,
And now I'm stuck here trying to reclaim.
All the things I left behind,
But still they exist within my mind.

A walking corpse,
Is who I am.
Unwanted parts.

See yourself from different angles.
Conflicting wants are getting tangled.
Who you were was being strangled.
Your once known face has become mangled.

Torn apart from all the others,
A spark of life will soon be smothered.
Far away and running further.
Freedom is just now discovered.

I forgot what living was,
And now I'm never going to be the same.
I forgot the man I am,
And now I'm stuck here trying to reclaim.
All the things I left behind,
But still they exist within my mind.

A walking corpse,
Is who I am.
Unwanted parts.
But still I stand
