This hand on this gun to my head is my own
and these are my demands:
If you leave me, take me with you, I am nothing without you.
People who need people are the wretchedest in the world.

    General Commentlook down on yourself for wanting to love someone more then you love yourself, knowing the downfalls and still going ahead, [dying with someone is better then living alone]

    General Commenton the contrary, it's a criticism of the clingy attitude many people have in a relationship. it's about that feeling of being held hostage by somebody: the relationship is a sinking ship, but the other party believes that they are nothing without the speaker - perhaps displaying self-destructive tendencies when threatened with a breakup. which is, of course, a fucked up sentiment. the speaker, thus, feels trapped inside this broken shell of a relationship. it's fine to love, but you should never get to the stage where you feel that you are totally dependent on someone else.
