It's been a month since the Fourth of July
Stood there and stared at the grief in my eyes
Leave it to me to live out a lie

So I sat on the curb and I cried like a child
Catching my breath just walk for awhile
And I thought of what could go wrong

I'm already gone
Don't say a word
I can't hear you
Don't hold me close
I can't feel you

So I stopped at the store to grab cigarettes
Couldn't say it out loud couldn't fathom it yet
You finally feel and we feel like this

I'm sorry just wasn't enough destroying your faith
Preserving your trust
We couldn't choose
And neither could I

I know that I left you for dead
Don't give up so soon
Because you know that we all have a bed
It's waiting for you in the recovery room

Just forget everything that I said
Washed out the wounds
Walls painted red
Waiting for you in the recovery room

She stood there in her summer dress
Wind caught her hair and failed to confess
I smiled as we raced through the night
My hand caught her wings then nothing felt right

I know that I left you for dead
Don't give up so soon
Because you know that we all have a bed
It's waiting for you in the recovery room

Just forget everything that I said
Washed out the wounds
Walls painted red
Waiting for you in the recovery room

    General Commentthis song is totally about an attempted suicide, it follows their themes of depression/drugs and some sort of epiphany. i really actually cant tell if the speaker is talking of the ghost of the person who killer his or her self and living fancifully with it, or whether the attempt failed and now the speaker is being the support that the person who attempted suicide needed. these are so really creepily powerful lines to me taken in context:
    "Just forget everything that I said
    Washed out the wounds
    Walls painted red
    Waiting for you in the recovery room"
