"The Reason Why" as written by and Daniel Hunt....
Where am I
Sleeping at the console
I dreamt something
That I don't remember

Checking in
Just like any other
Signing off
Signing out forever

Your second hand
That's the reason why you're easy to drive
(the reason why)

You understand
That's the reason why you're easy to hide

My heart says yes
But I was sedated
Signing off
Checking in together

Your second hand
That's the reason why you're easy to drive
(the reason why)

You understand
That's the reason why you're easy to hide
(the reason why)

You joined a band
That's the reason why you're easy to try
(the reason why)

You understand
That's the reason why you're easy to hide

    General Commentself-injury. you wake up and it feels like a dream-
    sleeping at the "console"- a pun for the consolation of self-injury.
    signing out forever- going to far and losing your control over life.
    your second hand- the hand that holds the blade
    that's the reason why your easy to drive- the wrist, such an easy target, so vulnerable, so plumb, so white.
    this may not be what the song intended but that's where it takes me.
    easy to hide- the scared tissue, can be hidden under sleeves, can be positioned to not be seen

    General Commentits about getting close to people that you don't others to know about.

    you keep your relationship with them distant from the other people close to you

    General CommentThe () is my interpreation

    Where am I
    Sleeping at the console
    (You’re confused of your state of mind and you’re unstable)

    I dreamt something
    That I don't remember
    (You don’t recall your dreams, ´cause you push that away)

    Checking in
    Just like any other
    (You are checking in, shaped as a lie, so you can be with others)

    Signing off
    Signing out forever
    (And in the same moment you check in, you close the doors for yourself and sign you out forever, to live within something that you’ve created for yourself)

    Your second hand
    That's the reason why you're easy to drive
    (You use your “other hand” to meet people with, ´cause you feel its easier, than showing the real you off)

    You understand
    That's the reason why you're easy to hide
    (That’s the reason that you hide yourself, everyone believes in you anyway, no one looks behind you)

    My heart says yes
    But I was sedated
    (Your heart says yes, to follow your real emotions and be true to yourself, but you are sedated, and slow your heartbeats and yourself down)

    Signing off
    Checking in together
    (While signing out yourself, you check in as a lie)

    Your second hand
    That's the reason why you're easy to drive
    (You use your “other hand” to meet people with, ´cause you feel its easier, than showing the real you off)


    You understand
    That's the reason why you're easy to hide
    (That’s the reason that you hide yourself, everyone believes in you anyway, no one looks behind you)



    You joined a band
    That's the reason why you're easy to try
    (You joined the “crowd” and that’s why its easy to pour out yourself to live within a song)



    You understand
    That's the reason why you're easy to hide
    (That’s the reason that you hide yourself, everyone believes in you anyway, no one looks behind you)

    Song MeaningIt's about a relationship based on drugs abuse.
    (My heart say yes, but I was sedated)

    Being hooked in a lifestyle, that seems cool
    but is destroying him/her and looks like there's
    no escape from it cause there's a lot of social rewarding
    (You joined the band, that's the reason why you are easy to try)
