"Lost in Paradise" "End of the Dream"
"Sick" is a song on the third self-titled studio album, Evanescence. It's one of the songs that was reworked during 2009-2012 Lillywhite sessions.

Meaning and lyrics Edit

The song is about Lee venting the frustration she had with their record label:

Honestly, it was at a time I was sort of like frustrated creatively and in a place where I seriously felt misunderstood by the record label and everybody. And I was just really like "I'm sick of this!" so that was what I was singing about, yeah (laughs)

Performances Edit

"Sick" was performed for the first time live during the 2011 Rock in Rio festival on October 2. It was added as a set-list for the 2011 Evanescence Tour, but was pulled from the set-list three months before the tour ended.

Amy Lee – Writing, vocals, piano

Terry Balsamo – Writing, guitars

LyricsEdit

Embrace the silence
'Cause there’s nothing that can change the way I feel
Taken all that you wanted
Now there’s nothing that can change the way I feel

Hold on, little girl
The end is soon to come

Sick of it all, sick of it all, we will not follow
Sick of it all, sick of it all, they don’t understand how
Sick we are, sick we are of this bottomless pit of lies
Behind closed eyes

Oceans between us
And there’s nothing that can change the way I feel
I can still taste the poison
Of every thought, every breath I wasted here

Hold on, little girl
The end is soon to come

Sick of it all, sick of it all, we will not follow
Sick of it all, sick of it all, they don’t understand how
Sick we are, sick we are of this bottomless pit of lies
Behind closed eyes

Someday you’ll know the pain
Someday the light will break through
And nothing you tell yourself will save us from the
truth
Screaming out

Sick of it all, sick of it all, we will not follow
Sick of it all, sick of it all, they don’t understand how
Sick we are, sick we are of this bottomless pit of lies
Behind closed eyes
