about

This track is inspired by the Christopher Nolan film.
It details the exploits of a man with no short-term memory attempting to find who murdered and raped his wife and left him paralyzed.
Thematically, it deals with responsibility, and how no one is exempt from it.

lyrics

REFLECTIONS OF MY TATTOOED FLESH
HOW LONG HAVE I BEEN AT THIS
BITS AND FRAGMENTS OF MY PAST
MADE UP OF TATTERED PICTURES AND PAPER SCRAPS

MEMORY IS TREACHERY
WEAKNESS IS NEVER TRUSTWORTHY
LIKE AWAKING WITHOUT HAVING BEEN ASLEEP

IMAGES IN MIRROR SHARDS
DISSIPATE LIKE WATER DROPS
ALL I FEEL AND ALL I SEE
WILL NEVER BECOME PART OF ME

DISTORTIONS OF WHAT USED TO BE
I LIE TO MAKE MYSELF HAPPY
EVERYTHING FADES, I DON'T FEEL A THING
I PRETEND, I FAKE IT

REVENGE, NO MATTER WHAT THE COST
MY MEMORY IS FOREVER LOST
LIKE A PHOTO DEVELOPING IN REVERSE

MIRRORS REMIND US WHO WE ARE
FOREVER WE LIVE WITH OUR SCARS
REGARDLESS OF WHAT WE FORGET
OUR PAST EXISTS AND WE MUST LIVE WITH IT

A PUZZLE I CAN NEVER SOLVE
MY HATRED GIVES ME PURPOSE
I MAKE UP MY OWN TRUTH
FOR WHAT IS REAL IS WORTHLESS

I'M A RAT IN A MAZE
ONE WHICH I MYSELF DID CREATE
I'VE SEALED MY FATE AND LOCKED THE CAGE
