Replica

This song is by Sonata Arctica and appears on the album Ecliptica (1999).


I'm home again, I won the war
And now I am behind your door
I tried so hard to obey the law
See the meaning of it all
Remember me? Before the war
I'm the man who lived next door
Long ago

As you can see, when you look at me
I'm pieces of what I used to be
It's easier if you don't see
Me standing on my own two feet
I'm taller when I sit here still
You ask are all my dreams fulfilled
They made me a heart of steel
The kind the bullets cannot see

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me

The light is green, my slate is clean
New life to fill the hole in me
I had no name, last December
Christmas Eve - I can't remember
I was in a constant pain
I saw your shadow in the rain
I painted all your pictures red
I wish I had stayed home instead
Yeah!

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me

Are you gonna leave me now, when it is all over?
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over?

Raising from the place I've been
And trying to keep my home base clean
Now I'm here
And won't go back, believe

I fall asleep and dream a dream
I'm floating in a silent stream
No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah

Nothing's what it seems to be
I'm a replica, I'm a replica
Empty shell inside of me
I'm not myself, I'm a replica of me
