Save my skin, I need a medic
Hold me down, I'm only sewn down.
Save my teeth, show me you meant it
Catch my death, I'm only sewn together.

My eyelids are heavy, and the night's wearing on
Your story's familiar, and your innocence is gone
We'd burn like the morning then break like your heart
Fall in love without warning just to fall back apart
All fevered and blistered, with nothing at stake
I feel the warmth of her whisper, and the cold of my mistakes
Her soul in the balance, my heart in her hands
I made her a widow, she made me a man.

    General Commenti think this song is talking about how aaron (the singer) had a relationship with a girl and went too far with it...he talks like it was his fault that the relationship was ruined, but he is still in love with the girl. live these guys are incredible...they have more emotion on stage than any band i've ever seen...as emo as it sounds, it made me feel like crying. i love the fact that even though the lyrics are sad, they have a glimmer of hope in them.

    General CommentWhat is he shouting in the background when they are singing

    "Save my skin, I need a medic
    Hold me down, I'm only sewn down.
    Save my teeth, show me you meant it
    Catch my death, I'm only sewn together. "

    for the second time?
