Scarred

This song is by Dream Theater and appears on the album Awake (1994) and on the live album Once In A LIVETime (1998).

Original video
To rise, to fall
To hurt, to hate
To want, to wait
To heal, to save

Can't hear it, we fear it
Awareness won't come near it
Distractive, reactive
Disguised in spite of time

I never bared my emotion
My passion always strong
I never lost my devotion
But somewhere fate went wrong

Can't let them rape me again
Your venom's not family here
Won't let them fill me with
Fatalistic remedies

What if the rest of the world
Was hopelessly blinded by fear?
Where would my sanctity live?
Suddenly nobody cares

It's never enough
You're wasting your time
Isn't there something I could say?
You don't understand
You're closing me out
How can we live our lives this way?

You tell me I'm wrong
I'm risking my life
Still, I have nothing in return
I show you my hands
You don't see the scars
Maybe you'll leave me here to burn

What if the rest of the world
Was hopelessly drowning in vain?
Where would our self pity run?
Suddenly everyone cares

Blood heal me
Fear change me
Belief will always save me
Blood swearing
Fear staring
Conviction made aware

Give up on misery
Turn your back on dissent
Leave their distrust behind
Wash your hands of regret

Do you feel you don't know me anymore?
And do you feel I'm afraid of your love?
And how come you don't want me asking?
And how come my heart's not invited?
You say you want everyone happy
Well, we're not laughing

And how come you don't understand me?
And how come I don't understand you?
Thirty years say we're in this together
So open your eyes

People in prayer for me
Everyone there for me
Sometimes I feel I should face this alone
My soul exposed
It calms me to know that I won't

Blood heal me
Fear change me
Belief will always save me
Blood swearing
Fear staring
Conviction made aware

Give up on misery
Turn your back on dissent
Leave their distrust behind
Wash your hands of regret

Blood heal me
Fear change me
Belief will always save me
Blood swearing
Fear staring
Conviction made aware

Learning from misery
Staring back at dissent
Leaving distrust behind
I'm inspired and content
