Thought about holding my breath last night,
until my face turned blue and waited for
my world to turn black as I laid in your arms,
this air deprived suicide.

Would speak to ears and break down walls,
I never could.

This vertigo unconsciousness.

You let this one slip through your fingertips
(mine turn numb)
and there’s no point to take back what was said
(and you cant take back, you cant take back everything you said)
when my heart no longer beats
there’s only time for your regret and memories.

And after seeing my face,
this farewell scrawled in saline,
don't try to recessitate this love
because it will never breathe.
so throw away a million pictures,
disregard all thoughts of me,
don’t try to recessitate this boy
with some health class remedy.

You let this one slip through your fingertips
(mine turn numb)
and there’s no point to take back what was said
(and you cant take back, you cant take back everything you said)
when my heart no longer beats
there’s only time for your regret and memories.

Did you see my stomach stop moving?
Did you feel my last breath on your neck?

    General CommentWhy doesn't TREOS have more comments? This is an awesome band - I'm in loooove with their music. It's purely awesome. As for the meaning, I'm thinking it's about a breakup and saying that their relationship would never be rekindled or something.

    General Commentmmm...oh how i love them...i only just heard of them and this is my fave song:-D

    i think the meaning of this song involves a relationship of some kind. It's like the boy is trying to accept that this relationship would never work, but the girl won't accept it. But by not accepting it, the words she says to try and make it work are actually hurting him more and more. and the whole not breathing thing is like him saying goodbye to her because he knows the only way to get away from this is to 'kill' his part of the relationship, which i'm thinking is the reference to suicide.

    General CommentThe song, in my opinion, is about a girl ending a relationship and the guy knowing that it's a mistake but he's telling her that he won't take her back no matter how much she later regrets her decison. Basically, she screwed up and there is nothing that she could do at that point to fix what's been broken.

    General Commenti took this song wayy too literally, i thought it was about a girl who ruined a relationship with a guy, and he got back at her by committing suicide... kinda morbid...
