"I Cut Myself, Too" as written by and Theo Goutzinakis Thomas Thacker....
Are you holding out?
Are you satisfied of making confessions?
I'm moving on, and you're just waiting around.

While you were down,
And looking for someone to follow,
Misunderstood, I understood you well.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

And it helps to know,
To know you're not alone your not fucked up.
Just waiting patient, waiting for the call.

And just like you,
Now I then I cut myself to pieces,
And it rains it pours blood, but doesn't make any sense.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

Now your crushing like cement,
Do you find your perfect fit?
And stand out from the rest
Shine on you the best

Well we all fall down,
Is it better now or are you still broken?
I'm moving on, and you're still waiting around.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.
Don't you think you need some time?
I'm not putting you in tonight.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out tonight.

If it helps to ease your mind,
You're not putting me out,
I'm putting you in tonight .

    General CommentIt's still a top song, when you listen to it, it doesn't really sound that emotional or anything, has that typical Gob sound to it. Good stuff from them

    General CommentSounds like some guy feeling sorry for himself and thinking his life really sucks when he doesn't actually get out and do anything to make a difference... self explanitory I guess.

    General CommentI think that the song name says it all here, although it's something you have to think about.

    Most people pass off the song as emo upon reading "I Cut Myself". However, they neglect the fact that it says "I Cut Myself, Too". This one word bares significance when taken with the line -:
    "And it helps to know
    To know you're not alone, you're not fucked up"
    - along with other lines throughout the song, hinting towards another person. To me, this song represents a date with a girl who shows the singer her scars from cutting herself ("are you satisfied with making confessions"). It worries her that she deals with her emotions this way, especially because she doesn't see it as normal ("to know you're not alone, you're not fucked up". However, instead of thinking badly of the girl ("if it helps to ease your mind, you're not putting me out tonight"), he reveals that, he too, cuts himself to deal with life (hence the title).

    However, even though he does cut himself, and he understands what she's going through, he doesn't want to stay with her ("I'm not putting you in tonight").
