I Play Dead Lyrics:

I Play dead AGAIN
It just might stop before the end…
If I PRETENDDDD
You may not see the pain I’m in
So close to MEEEE…
Can’t tell what I’m supposed to be…
Don’t stop to breathe…
Can’t bear to think what you might see…
This tourniquet…
These BLESSED hands around my head
So I can keep from…

BLEEDING!
I’ve got to find a way to stop before it STARTS
Finding its way through my veins right to my HEART
I never thought it something everyone could SEE
And it KILLS WITHIN ME

I WON’T
I won’t leave without a trace…
I WON’T
Be erased

It’s in my head…
I can’t forget what You once said
The words I read…
The fractured soul that I can’t mend
Right here with ME….
Killing the void I used to be
REMEMBERING…
Through fading sparks of memory

Two broken hands…
Lift seven wounds and fight to stand
To keep the lungs from…

CAVING
I’ve got to find a way to stop before it STARTS
Finding its way through my veins right to my HEART
I never thought it something everyone could SEE
And it KILLS WITHIN ME
CAVING
I’ve got to find a way to stop before it STARTS
Finding its way through my veins right to my HEART
I never thought it something everyone could SEE
And it KILLS….

I WON’T
I won’t leave without a trace…
I WON’T
Be erased

Turning…
It’s moving…
Escaping…
Right through me…

I care not.
I bleed not…
For You… I believe not…..

I. PLAY. DEAD.

Behind the Song – I Play Dead (By Ryan Clark, lead vocalist of Demon Hunter and writer of all their material)

“I have a tendency to be carefree in many circumstances.
In some ways it is helpful. I don t stress out about many situations that I think are trivial.

But sometimes this laid-back attitude can evolve into full-blown apathy. Often times I let things that are important to others roll right off my back. I am constantly reminding myself that there are plenty of things that I need to care more about.

It seems like a small problem, but it has proven to be quite a struggle. I want to be sincere about the things I believe in deeply. This song is a reminder of what Christ did for me and just how important that was. It says ‘Two broken hands lift seven wounds and fight to stand.’ This explains the agony of the cross that Christ hung upon to wipe away my sins. This is one thing that I don’t want to take for granted.
