I found you falling into old routines,
As you layed the final straw across my back.
Familiar with the ending,
The sickening returns,
And I've come to find out the equation stays the same.
Every time I think it's different,
You turn and face me with the truth.
With your eyes so blank and distant,
But that's nothing new, and looks more like the habit is breaking you.
I should know better than to trust myself.
When guilt and failure bring me back.
I take the beatings for you.
You never felt the fall.
It's been hard to tell who been sicker all along.

And it is hard to stay indifferent,
As you fall apart in front of me.
Then I choke on the resentment,
But that's nothing new, and it looks more like the habit is breaking me.

We all break down and we break the promises we make.

    General CommentAhhhh, I love this song. It's just got the rhythm that makes you want to jump to it (I always do when I play it...). But the lyrics seem to signify breakup/makeup relationships where the outcome never changes. I know what that's like. =(

    General CommentYeah, I think this song is about breakup/makeup relationships. My favorite line is "We all break down and we break the promises we make." It is just a great line, part of a great song.

    General CommentJeez this was the first autopilot off song that I heard. Since then I love all their songs!
    I guess this song is about stuck in a rutine, living in repetition. Hoping that someday you will meet that special girl but you only find along the way the same kind of brainless superficial social chick.
    And you are starting to get tired of that situation and you are starting to think that maybe it´s not so bad idea betray yourself trying to meet a brainless superficial social chick.

    We all break down and we break the promises we make.
    Great song!
