Like a siren in my head that always threatens to repeat
Like a blind man that is strapped into the speeding driver’s seat
Like a face that learns to speak
When all it knew was how to bite

Like a misery that keeps me focused though I’ve gone astray
Like an endless nightmare that I must awaken from each day
Like conviction, a premonition
Not worthy of, so I deny, I deny

I blind my eyes and try and force it all into place
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace
I blind my eyes, I hide and feel it passing me by
I open just in time to say goodbye

Almost like your life
Almost like your endless fight
Curse the day is long
Realize you don’t belong

Disconnect somehow
Never stop the bleeding now
Almost like your fight
And there it went, almost like your life

Like a wound that keeps on bleeding to remind me not to think
Like a raging river, drowning, when I only need a drink
Like a poison that I swallow
But I want the world to die

Like a release from a prison that I didn’t know I was in
Like a fight to live the past, I prayed to leave, from way back then
Like a general without a mission
Until the war will start again, start again

I blind my eyes and try and force it all into place
I stitch them up, see not my fall from grace
I blind my eyes, I hide and feel it passing me by
I open just in time to say goodbye

Almost like your life
Almost like your endless fight
Curse the day is long
Realize you don’t belong

Disconnect somehow
Never stop the bleeding now
Almost like your fight
And there it went, almost like your life

Like a touch from Hell to feel how hot
That it can get if you get caught
Like a strike from Heaven, turns that key
And brings you straight down to your knees

Like a touch from Hell to feel how hot
That it can get if I get caught
Like a strike from Heaven, to reprieve
That brings you straight down to your knees

Almost like your life
Almost like your endless fight
Curse the day is long
Realize you don’t belong

Disconnect somehow
Never stop the bleeding now
Almost like your fight
And there it went, almost like your life

That was just your life
