With every movement everything sags
I drink till I’m sober, and start again
If you had the answers, cause I wasn’t sharp
The wine wasn’t ending, well why did it start
I do declare you are all that I wanted
I was so stubborn, the risks were undaunted
If you had the answers, and I wasn’t told
That makes you selfish, heartless and cold

If I’m sent packing, and I’m giving up
Rights to the children, the keys to the truck
If you had the answers, then why was it hard
To lock the door, and keep up your guard

I’ve nothing to say
That we haven’t gone over already
I’ve nothing to say
That we haven’t gone over already

    General Commenti can't help but cry during this song. it's so peaceful, like he doesn't care that his life is over. it sounds like one of those songs they play in a movie where a suicide is slowly being carried out by the main character. like we slowly see him cry out his last tears, as the blade severs his vains. it's like the song plays out the ending of a long, sad thing. and maybe this song will be playing if i "go". there is so much shit in my life right now, and so much pain, that maybe...just maybe...and sharp pain to the wrist is worth the ending.

    please let me forget you...

    General Commenthonestly, it sounds like it's a song from the perspective of an adult going through a divorce. the parent obviously has a drinking problem ("With every movement everything sags
    I drink till I’m sober, and start again")

    this was really the part that made me think it was about a divorce:
    "If I’m sent packing, and I’m giving up
    Rights to the children, the keys to the truck"

    the last part fits because it shows the two parents have argued so many times but nothing really changes:
    "I’ve nothing to say
    That we haven’t gone over already
    I’ve nothing to say
    That we haven’t gone over already"
