lyrics

Forget my name

I never confessed before
That I have gone too far
In this simulation of Life
I have acted out a role
I have never been whole
I couldn´t be what people need

A name I throw on mud
A hero who´s a dud
I chose to obliterate
Devoted to negate
Unchained from the past
My persona can´t last
I must reborn - That´s why

Chorus:
You must forget my name (4x)

I have tried to be ideal
I would die to conceal
The worst mistake, a man so fake
I have been only a slave
Of those dreams that deprave
A fool addicted to his own ego

Scratch out this vicious word
All syllables are blurred
Dare not repeat the name
I can´t afford the shame
I saw the curtains fall
I hit and broke the wall
Dead dreams haunt me - That´s why

Chorus:
You must forget my name (4x)

Take my empty name, erase it away
See the putrid idol lost in yesterday
All the false glory of my past identity
The cold empty smile of my own nonentity

I´ve told myself the lie
Now all the illusions die
A man under a cloak
A name that´s just a joke
I will never accept
The life I now regret
Then I kneel and beg – oh I beg!

Chorus:
You must forget my name (4x)
