someone call an ambulance cause something's not right
it's all going wrong tonight
in between the bottom of this bottle and you
i think i'm running into rock bottom

this time i'm in over my head
from counting times, times that i've said
"this time i'm in over my head
from counting times, times that i've said ... "

it took time to fashion this noose from fine threads of self abuse
but it fits your neck perfectly
securely
your heels hit heavy on the hardwood
not that it did any good
my love, you've been a constant headache for me
if it came down to this act or one more near heart attack
you wouldn't have a hope in hell, my darling
it all comes down to this act
don't stop the heartbeat counting
i know that i'm responsible for this
and i'll miss you
maybe, in time, i'll find out what it is that i'm supposed to do
i know that i'm responsible for this
and i'll miss you
don't stop the heartbeat counting

i've made a million messes and i'll make a millon more
trust me, baby ... maybe i'm not the man you're searching for
someone call an ambulance

    General Commentbno opened with this diddy when i saw them. it was awesome, this song is my favorite. its very slow and drags on...the screaming is great...it all reminds me of someone slowly suffering or dying. which makes sence, bno is all about death. it also speeds up at some points, best line: "i know that i'm responsible for this and i'll miss you" just the way its sung with the music makes it the best

    General Commenti love the title of this song. it just reminds me of someone talking down to him and him just taking all of it even though it hurts.

    General CommentThe song is obviously a guy talking about a girl killing herself over him because she was in love with him but he didnt want her..

    "it took time to fashion this noose from fine threads of self abuse but it fits your neck perfectly securely your heels hit heavy on the hardwood not that it did any good"


    "I know that i'm responsible for this, and i'll miss you"

    "my love, you've been a constant headache for me"

    more trust me, baby ... maybe i'm not the man you're searching for"

    General CommentIt's a break-up song. And how love can feel like death. The guy knows it's his fault it didn't work out, and he's pleading and telling the girl why he wasn't write for her. I love the tempo of this song. Perfection. One of my Favourite BNO songs.

    My InterpretationMy guess is that this may have been the nightmare that inspired the main character to kill his wife (not girlfriend) in Train Wreck.

    Or, BNO didn't entirely know what they wanted out of their next album and changed the death to being asphyxiated via a telephone cord vs. noose.
