Ten frozen memories lost into your pool of interrupted thought.
I could have reminisced for hours.
But right now you are all I get to remember.
I'm waiting for something to get through to you.
I'm waiting to see a truer side of you, and we're...

Let's make this quick. I'll bother you, you'll tear it away.

Cut broken enemies off, into your pit of non-valuable losses.
Could have stayed and dreamt for days,
But the sight must be far worse than the taste.
And I'm waiting for something to get through to you.
And I'm waiting to burn compassion into you. and we're..

We don't even know if we're to blame for all of this,
We don't even know if we're in the clear, the clear.
We don't even know if we should bank on any of this
And we don't even know if we'll go,

So let's make this quick. I'll bother you, you'll tear it away.

This isn't happening, leave me with myself.

    This guy/girl is recalling 10 amazing memories that he/she had with their significant other and could have just thought about this for hours but their thoughts are interupted by an argument. ("but right now you are all I get to remember")
    "Let's make this quick. I'll bother you, you'll tear it away"
    realizes that an argument is inevitable and just wants to make it quick and simple
    "Cut broken enemies off, into your pit of non-valuable losses."
    the significant other just cuts this person off from their life...pushes them into a pit with their other non-valuable losses
    "We don't even know...."
    the person doesn't know whether they are to blame or who is, and if its really over, or if they should give it another shot, and ultimately don't know if they'll even be able to go on without each other.

    The last line is kind of like realization of what the person just did and they are just shocked and can't believe its happening and want to be left alone.

    Awesome song...Dead Poetic rules!

    General CommentIt sounds like [whoever I is] is trying to lead someone to Christ (because DP is christian)---the first verse means the other person is trying to contemplate life and figure something out---life.
    "I'm waiting": those lines mean I 'm waiting for God's message to get through to you so you will repent.
    "Lets make this quick" that line says how he doesnt really have faith that the other person will accept it
    "Cut broken enemies off, into your pit of non-valuable losses." How the person is careless when dealing with people--needs help. Wow i just looked at this again and saw how weak and stretched my idea is. I'm just trying to make it christian because I lose the music but not the lyrics. pyroboy's right ;)
