Into the dark is where you're draggin' me
and into your dark is where I never want to be.
I know I'm not alone
and I really want to leave.
Into the dark is where you want to watch me bleed.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped,
I gotta go.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped don't you know.
I'm feelin' kinda trapped I gotta go.
I gotta go.
I'm being dragged down,
for how long,
I don't know.
I'm being dragged down and I rise up way too slow.
I know I don't belong here and I think I ought to go.
I hope that I can leave here, leave here with my soul.

    General Commentyeah this song is class, the lyrics are cool too. probably means something about being dragged into being part of a group you dont fit in to and want out. either that or a relationship that is making you really unhappy and wanting out without hurting any feelings. after all this is on one of AFI's 1st albums where they were proper punks, and not gothic.

    General CommentI feel like this a lot. It seems that life itself drags me into some type of mental darkness and you can't escape. Kinda like quicksand. A great song indeed and one of my favorites on 'Answer That and Stay Fashonible'.

    General Commentit's like you're trapped with some people that you thought were "cool" (?) and then you realize they only brought you in where they are to mess with you and now you want to get away because they're only going to fuck you up.

    General CommentI think this song is along the lines of feeling trapped in a relationship and wanting to get out. I really like the verse melody on this one.

    General CommentThis was probally just about a bad relationship, thought afi dosnt really write love songs, it could just be a hate song. It's amazingly sad, and beautiful. He just needs to get out....

    General CommentI think it might have something to do with satan, sinning, and stuff like that.

    General CommentAdam did come up with the title lol

    It seems to me that the song is about being dragged down by "satan" the line-

    "Hope I can leave here, leave here with my soul."
    Convinces me.

    Maybe being evil is as good as a brownie bottom "sundae"?
