What's with you making me sick
I know the reasons why
You cut to the quick
But still I try
It’s all I can see
And so it goes
What can you take from me

You can take it away

Here’s the trip
Yeah you think to much
I know the reasons why
Your so out of touch
And so it goes
It’s all you can take from me

    General CommentI'm not really sure what this song is about but i associate "cut" with self harm and "trip" with drug intake, so maybe this song is about not being able to relate to someone's self destructive tendencies and that the person to who the song is addressed can't see the damage their causing to others. probably reading way too much into this song tho. Awesome track, but the lyrics are seriously ambigous, which is a good thing i a way, i guess.

    General Commentyou could be right, but i think its about a relationship with a person, and they treat you like complete crap, but you still care about them and try to make everything better.
    'I know the reasons why
    You cut to the quick
    But still I try
    It’s all I can see
    And so it goes'
    and maybe eventually they get fed up ?

    General CommentI think this song is about is about unrequited love. One is in love, the other is not, this person will not let them go. This person comes back into their life whenever they are trying to move on. Takes everything,and let's them too. It's about power and control over another. It's basically about mind fucking another. This person has no heart and it slowly making the other sink.
