"Retrospect"

How did I get here, why did this happen and when will this torture ever end?
Do I deserve it, am I a victim or is it all just part of the master plan?

Would I change anything if the hands of time would allow me to?
And if I could change everything what kind of world would I wake up to?

I think of the places, all of the spaces that I used to fill back then
All of my family, all of my enemies and all of those who I could call friends

Would I change anything if the hands of time would allow me to?
And if I could change everything what kind of world would I wake up to?

If I could turn back the page to those chapters of my life
How many times would I change my mind and what would I write?
Sometimes I wonder - does destiny have a plan?
And when will I ever understand who I am?
Who I am

How did I get here, why did this happen and when will this torture ever end?

Would I change anything if the hands of time would allow me to?
And if I could change everything what kind of world would I wake up to?

If I could turn back the page to those chapters of my life
How many times would I change my mind and what would I write?
Sometimes I wonder - does destiny have a plan?
And when will I ever understand who I am?
Who I am

You do realize that this is all your fault
Every decision that you've ever made has brought you to this moment
You know how you got here
You know why this happened
You know you're not a victim
And you certainly know you deserve it
So why should your torture ever end?

If I could turn back the page to those chapters of my life
How many times would I change my mind and what would I write?
Sometimes I wonder - does destiny have a plan?
And when will I ever understand who I am?
Who I am
