I'll email you later on today, but for now, here are the lyrics to a song by Evanescence. My best friend interprets the song as being a ballad to Death. I interpret as a woman who must seek the help of another being, perhaps a man (because there is a male singing the rap part), perhaps Death, to make herself whole.... To me she sounds desperate for his help because she can not come to a realization of herself without the other being - be it Death or man. I think the song would be OK if the whole album wasn't like that.... Maybe a song about something besides herself? A song with lyrics expressing a social conscience? It just sounds so damned narcissistic after a while.... & I think that there has to be a balance between concern for oneself & other beings - if there is no balance, too much concern for one or the other is suicide. & perhaps that's why she sings about needing to come to life - she's dead on the inside because she's either too absorbed in herself. Does this make sense?

"Bring Me To Life"
(feat. Paul McCoy)

how can you see into my eyes like open doors
leading you down into my core
where Iíve become so numb without a soul my spirit sleeping somewhere cold
until you find it there and lead it back home

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít 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 canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

now that I know what Iím 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 canít 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 canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

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
Iíve 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

(Wake me up)
Wake me up inside
(I canít 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 canít wake up)
before I come undone
(Save me)
save me from the nothing Iíve become

(Bring me to life)
Iíve been living a lie, thereís nothing inside
(Bring me to life)
