Evanescence Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

"You hold the answers deep within your own mind.
Consciously you've forgotten it.
That's the way the human mind works.
Whenever something is too unpleasant,
Too shameful for us to entertain,
We reject it, We erase it from our memories.
But the answer is always there."
The pain that grips you,
The fear that binds you,
Releases life in me.
In our mutual shame we idolize,
To blind them from the truth,
That finds a way from who we are.
Please don't be afraid,
When the darkness fades away.
The dawn will break the silence,
Screaming in our hearts.
My love for you still grows.
This I do for you.
Before I try to fight the truth,
My final time.

"We're supposed to try and be real.
And I feel alone, and we're not together,
And that is real."

Can't wash it all away, can't wish it all away.
an't cry it all away, can't scratch it all away.

Lying beside you,
Listening to you breathe.
The life that flows inside of you,
Burns inside of me.
Hold and speak to me,
Of love without a sound.
Tell me you will live through this,
And I will die for you.
Cast me not away.
Say you'll be with me.
For I know I cannot bear it all alone.

"You're not alone, are you?"
"Never...never."

Can't fight it all away, Can't hope it all away.
Can't scream it all away, It just won't fade away.

Can't wash it all away, can't wish it all away.
Can't cry it all away, Can't scratch it all away.

Can't fight it all away, can't hope it all away.
Can't scream it all away, ooh it all away.
ooh it all away.

"But the answer is always there.
Nothing is ever really forgotten."





[Repeat: x5]
"Because I'm tired too."

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Evanescence's "[Untitled Hidden Track]" delve deep into the human mind and its ability to both forget and remember. The opening line, "You hold the answers deep within your own mind," suggests that we have the power to access the answers we seek within ourselves, even if we have consciously forgotten them. However, the verse also highlights the tendency for the human mind to reject memories or experiences that are too painful or shameful to confront. This rejection ultimately leads to the erasure of these experiences from our memories, but the answer is always within us. The line "But the answer is always there" serves as a reminder that we have the power to access these forgotten memories if we choose to do so.


The next verse explores the idea of mutual shame and how it can drive us to idolize certain things to hide from the truth of who we are. The chorus speaks to the power of love and connection in the face of pain and fear. The lines "The life that flows inside of you, burns inside of me," captures the intensity of emotions that can arise when we care deeply for someone. The song concludes with a dialogue between two voices, where they acknowledge the shared feeling of exhaustion and the impossibility of "washing away" or "fighting away" their pain, but also the importance of not giving up hope.


Overall, the lyrics of "[Untitled Hidden Track]" invite listeners to confront their past experiences and emotions, and to question the role of love and connection in the face of these challenges.

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
chorus

(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
verse

Now that I know what I'm without, you can't just leave me
Breathe into me and make me real, bring (bring) me (me) to life
chorus

(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
hook

Bring me to life
I've been livin' a lie
There's nothing inside
Bring me to life
bridge

Frozen (frozen) inside without your touch, without your love
Darling, only (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
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 more
Bring me to life
chorus

(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
outro

Bring me to life
I've been livin' a lie (bring me to life)
There's nothing inside
Bring me to life
