"Salva Mea" as written by Rollo Armstrong, Ayalah Deborah Bentovim and Maxwell Alexander Fraser....
How can I change the world if I can't even change myself?
I cannot change the way I am?
I don't know, I don't know.
I take a look at the world behind these eyes,
Every nook, every cranny reorganize,
Realize my face don't fit the way I feel.
What's real?
I need a mirror to check my face is in place,
Incase of upheaval, fundamental movement below,
What's really going on I want to know,
But yo, we don't show on the outside, so slide.
Just below my skin I'm screaming...
I need a mirror for my spirit,
Yeah, can you feel it?
When I get deep, want to hear myself sleep,
Not drowning, tumbling around and around in the voices
Like a crowd in my head so loud,
I wonder what it's like to be dead,
I hope it's quiet, noise in my head like a riot,
Any remedy you have for me I'll try it.
Just below my skin I'm screaming...
I'm going deep, so deep that I can't sleep,
The pills ain't cheep but the bills are steep,
So I [?] with a booze and a spiff,
Try to snooze,
But who's dreaming, this is win or loose,
Put down the drink, try not to think,
Let it go, fundamental movement below,
And yo, reality is dreaming,
Just below my skin I'm screaming...

    General Commentthis song is about a feeling- a deep despairing lowness, that you can't get rid of, being lost and seemingly having no where to go! Being depressed I reackon. What do you think?
    [p.s. There are more lyrics than the above in the song]

    My InterpretationHave to agree with you there anon. The title is "Save me" in Latin and all the lyrics focus on inner turmoil and despair which the character is unable to express. This forms an interesting contrast with the music which is very uplifting, perhaps serving overall to help improve the listeners frame of mind when dealing with inner turmoil. I can certainly attest that this song has picked me up at times when I have been down.
