"Kellum" as written by Anthony S Raneri, Andrew Robert Elderbaum, Jack A O'shea and James Robert Mitchell....
Don't lift me up
With your strong intent on dropping me back down
Are you like this, afraid to be yourself?
And if you somehow get through all of this
Without hating yourself for all of it
And you know that I will hate you enough for the both of us

Spent that night alone, the first in a long time
Forgotten all the loneliness and darkness in my life
But you lost a friend, the day that you let go

To drown in the sea of regret and no one knows
That I'm alone and I can't blame anyone but you
Self-loathing once filled me but now I know the truth

Spent that night alone the first in a long time,
Forgotten all the loneliness and darkness in my life
But you lost a friend the day that you let go to drown
In a sea of regret and no one knows

Spent that night alone the first in a long time,
Forgotten all the loneliness and darkness in my life
But you lost a friend the day that you let go to drown
In a sea of regret and no one knows

    General CommentI think in the last verse it says:

    Self loathing once filled me
    But now I know the truth

    I could be wrong though

    I listened to this hundreds of times when my ex. wanted to try again. Still I didn't get it in to my head. I can't tell you how much I regret that. Cause what she did was to drop me back down =/

    General Commentto me this song is about someone breaking up with their partner and not being used to being on their own. i also think that they realise that their partner wasnt what they thought they were. could be wrong, but thats what the song said to me.

    General CommentAndrew said he wrote this song about a friend who isn't much of a friend anymore. He also said she knows this song is about her. Kellum is the name of the street on which she lives.

    General CommentTo add to that, he emphasizes she was his BEST friend, and the song's about everything that happened, and he blamed it all on her.

    General Commentnoseovertail, I read/saw about that as well. Because of that, I always picture a dark scene on a street corner with a girl grasping onto a man's shoulders kind of begging him to come back, but he just keeps shaking his head. I think the first verse displays this scene of mine the best. And yes, I make music videos in my head.
