"Strangled" as written by and Eric/slater Dodd....
It's just been too long is what they say
I show them my masks and they don't' know
How it's stuck in my head then you just won't go away
I miss it so much
How did it come to be?
I'm living with remains of me
And in this loneliness I'll see
I could leave you
Alone
Now what they say is 'just stay away.'
Mask in my hands now they all know
The closer I get the more I'm pushed away
I want it so much
How did it come to be?
I'm living with remains of me
And in this loneliness I'm gonna show you
How I could leave you
To love you
To need you
To take you down
I love you
Now that it's all been seen
There's no one left for me to be
And in this honesty you'll see
I won't leave you
To love you
To need you
To take you down
I love you
I fucking love you
I love you
I'll never, never leave you
Alone

    My InterpretationWhat it's like to be in love with a closeted woman in a work situation or other situation of similar caliber. Let me clarify this a bit, let's say you are a woman, right, and you are accosted by another attractive woman of older age, perhaps that, has sexually harassed you and hit on you for months. Something sexual may have happened between the two people in the past, or maybe it's just a fond memory of a fun time together. Either way, you (the one being harassed) has fallen in love with the other lady.
    You put up masks to your co-workers and pretend everything's alright, because you love her and fear retribution. Anyone who you talk to about the situation tells you to stay away from her and not attempt to persue a relationship despite your interest. You know yourself that it's a horrible idea. But the lady doing the harassment is closeted and afraid of losing her job, so the "closer you get the more you're pushed away". You are lonely, and the other person is not because, they already happen to be married, or something like that. So you love her, and feel like you need her, but eventually you break because of the way she has treated you. That's when you take her down. In what way that will be decided later. The last part of the song says, I'll never ever leave you. (alone). This was the type of behavior the harasser exhibited, and I believe that the song-writer expressed the feeling of the harassed wanting the harasser to feel like she did for once. That's kinda heavy, ain't it?
