This song is about the novel by Jean-Paul Sartre.


Tell me all your shame
Confess to all your crimes
We're locked behind these walls
We must be damned souls
You seem a bit odd to me
As you have no control
Insanity creeps all over us
You must be my torturer

Hell is other people
They make my mind commit suicide
Please get me out of here
Or let these strangers disappear
I wish I had known
That there is no exit

This is not what I have sinned for
This is what I've suffered on earth
I'm trying to explore
Every possible floor
Of this maze that we call our minds
And ourselves

We're searching for an exit
that we'll never find
No harakiri would stop it this time.
We're deceased as we're gone
But alive enough to feel it
Alive enough to feel each other as a burden
