Written 2003/2004, recorded 2005 for Grausamkeit, Manipulation, Bedeutungslosigkeit (hereafter referred to as GMB). A rewritten version of the first song I ever wrote, originally titled "Inspector 17" in honor of my guitar.


You have become such a part of me
You and your friends, I never would have thought
That you would mean so much to me
I didn't really know you
I didn't realize just what you could be
Somehow we met and we seemed to match
Just how we'll never ever know

You fill my lonely days and lonely nights
This is not just some plastic passion
You inspire me, you help me keep on going
I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have you

In you I've found an exit
When I thought that there were none
I've found a new escape, much better than before
The answer to all my fears
I think of me and who I used to be
I've changed so much or was it everything else?
We don't know what's real, we don't know what's true
We don't know anything at all
