Wake me when it's over,
I don't feel much like crying tonight.
Please tell me that you're leaving.
I don't feel much like holding you tight.

I love you even though I hate this thing that we've become.
I need you even though I can live without this.

I know that I should probably hurt so bad but I can't feel a thing.
I know that I should probably say something but I can barely breathe.
And I'm sorry if I'm giving up too easy
I just don't have the strength to fight no more.

My throat is sore from pleading.
I don't feel much like singing tonight.
If I can stop the bleeding I know that I will be alright.

I'll forget your bitter taste when you pull your lips away.
I'll forget the way you feel and the chill of your embrace.
I'll forget the way you look.
Don't wanna remember your face.
Let's just cut this clean tonight and maybe I'll cry tomorrow.

Explain the way you feel, you said to me.
I simply feel nothing and honestly I'd like to leave.

    General CommentI think that this song is from the point of view of someone who is ina relationship that just isn't working. As much as they want it to work, they are beinging to lose faith and are "giving up too easy" because they "don't have the strength to fight" at the moment, most likely because they are sick of fighting over the same things to try to save the relationship. they have finally realised theres really nothing more they can do to save it.

    Definatley my favourite song by Cauterize.

    General CommentMy favorite from Cauterizeand my favorite part of this song is the bridge. I think it's about loving someone and right now it's at the end of a relationship.

    I think he's kind of numb from the pain now, like he's gone through all the fights they've had so much, and he's basically given up on the relationship. Sure, he still loves her, but he doesn't love what they've become, and he's saying that he wants to forget the relationship and forget her face in order to move on.

    "Let's just cut this clean tonight, and maybe I'll cry tomorrow" pretty much tells me the meaning of this song. He wants to cut the relationship clean tonight, and then maybe he'll feel the repercussions of it tomorrow.

    Oh how I miss their music. It pretty much sucks that they broke up.
