Soundtrack of a Castaway – Bring Me to Life

There is such a thing as a Living Death, and it is not just the purview of zombies and monsters.  It is a state created and fashioned in a lack of love and affection.  It is grown over the flaming pits, in a young mind threatened with hell’s eternal face-fuck.  It thrives on fear and anxious trepidation, and it feeds on the hopes and dreams of the damned.

At times and in many ways, pure Death would be preferable.  But to be alive to one’s death…  To have a death that eats at you, that feeds on you…

THAT is unbearable.

It is consciousness to one’s soul-less-ness.

The spirit lives in the heartless tundra, the mind bloats in the desert.

Bid my blood to run, indeed.

Bring Me to Life

How can you see into my eyes, like open doors
Leading you down into my core
Where I’ve become so numb, without a soul
My spirit’s sleeping somewhere cold
Until you find it there and lead it back home

Wake me up, wake me up inside I can’t wake up,
Wake me up inside, save me,
Call my name and save me from the dark, wake me up
Bid my blood to run, I can’t wake up
Before I come undone, save me
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Now that I know what I’m without
You can’t just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real, bring me to life

Wake me up, wake me up inside I can’t wake up,
Wake me up inside, save me,
Call my name and save me from the dark, wake me up
Bid my blood to run, I can’t wake up
Before I come undone, save me
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life, I’ve been living a lie
There’s nothing inside, bring me to life

Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time, I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark, but you were there in front of me

I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
I’ve got to open my eyes to everything

Without a thought, without a voice, without a soul

Don’t let me die here
There must be something wrong, bring me to life

Wake me up, wake me up inside I can’t wake up,
Wake me up inside, save me,
Call my name and save me from the dark, wake me up
Bid my blood to run, I can’t wake up
Before I come undone, save me
Save me from the nothing I’ve become

Bring me to life, I’ve been living a lie, there’s nothing inside
Bring me to life
