Tell Me Why Lyrics

9. Tell Me Why (6:12)
I've been losing myself in anger
So much broken by the rage
Nothing could take my mind off
How to make them pay
Killing myself for nothing
Then the pain will go away
Losing myself to madness
And the game’s been played

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go
I’m too tired to keep on trying
But I’m spellbound ‘til the end
Knowing that there’s no closure
For my wars inside
I’ve buried the good and evil
Only memories left behind
Iron the wounds to stand in
I will live to tell

If I could turn the hands of time
I would but here I am
(Here I am!)

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go

Tell me why I’m wasting away,
Tell me how to break my own chains,
‘Cause I’m losing after all,
Tell me how to escaped this bricked fate,
Tell me how to face one more day,
‘Cause I’m wasting away

[Guitar solo]

It’s all gone silent
Searching for violent,
Nothing to fight for alone

Tell me why am I still here when it’s all gone
(When it’s all gone, when it’s all gone)
I’m living with the ghost of yesterday
(Yesterday’s gone, yesterday’s gone)
Tell me why I am still trying to hold on
I’ve got to turn it down to let it go
