Lyrics of Sonata Arctica
Replica (written by Tony Kakko)
I'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind your door. I tried so hard to obey the law, see the meaning of it all. Remember me? Before the war. I'm the man who lived next door. Long ago...

As you can see, when you look at me, I'm pieces of what I used to be. It's easier if you don't see me standing on my own two feet. I'm taller when I sit here still, you ask are all my dreams fulfilled.
They made me heart of steal, the kind them bullets cannot see

          Nothing's what it seems to be
          I'm a replica, I'm a replica
          Empty shell inside of me
          I'm not myself, I'm replica of me...

The light is green, my slate is clean, new life to fill the hole in me. I had no name, last December, Christmas Eve I can't remember. I was in a constant pain, I saw you shadow in a rain. I painted all your pigeons red, I wish I had stayed home instead


Are you gonna leave me now, when it's all over
Are you gonna leave me, is my world now over...

Raising from the place I've been, and trying to keep my home base clean. Now I'm here and won't go back, believe.

I fall asleep and dream a dream, I'm floating in a silent stream. No-one placing blame on me
But nothing's what it seems to be, yeah.
