"Accidents" as written by and Dallas/ingelevics Green....
I'm not sure what's worse
The waiting or the waiting room
"You're next sir" becomes cruel taunt to you
Recycled air, the smell of sleep and disinfectant
Your god is a two door elevator

Do they even cure you?
(Cut me open drug me) or it is just to humor us
(Repair all my defects) before we die
If only we could heal ourselves
We wouldn't need to be hooked up to these machines

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Let's redefine
(what it means to heal)

Whoa whoa whoa

Do they even cure you?
(Cut me open drug me)or it is just to humor us
(Repair all my defects)before we die
If only we could heal ourselves
We wouldn't need to be hooked up to these machines

Whao whoa whoa

    I'm thinking that the meaning of this song is possibly about how people are becoming more and more dependent on prescription drugs and doctors to solve the problems in their lives. They feel a little sad - go to the doctor and get some 'happy' pills, when really they should be trying to find out the root of their unhappiness rather than medicating it.

    General CommentI believe that this song is about Christianity. The singer (sorry, I forget his name) cant figure out if he should be christian or not. He believes that theres no proof that there really is a god and doesnt wanna waste his whole life following god if it'll mean nothing. But he also feels an emptyness inside him which he cant heal himself.

    Do they even cure you - does christianity save you from hell? is there a after life at all?
    (CUT ME OPEN DRUG ME) - Chruches ect which teach you about christianity trying to convince you its right and that there is an afterlife
    Or is it just to humour us before we die - But if god doesnt exist ( he does really) then we will have wasted our whole life following him
    (REPAIR ALL MY DEFECTS) - Being christian makes you a better person, makes you care for others ect.
    If Only we could heal ourselves - Christianity fills the whole in our heart which nothing else can.
    We wouldn't need to be hooked up to these machines - if "we could heal ourselves" there would be no need for god but we cant which is why god must exist..

    Im not sure whats worse the waiting or the waiting room
    "You're next sir" becomes a cruel taunt to you
    recycled air, the smell of sleep and disinfectant - I honnestly cant figure out what this means.. sry lol

    Your god is a two door elavator - means that god can send you out one door into hell or out the other door into heaven and you have no say in it.

    I felt like i had to post this because of all the complete morons on the first page... I think its about hospitals - holy shit man that makes sence i mean they do talk about hospitals, Alexisonfire would totally write about something like that!

    Anyways love the song love the meaning

    General CommentI think it is about if i choose to follow a faith will it cure me or lead me blindly through life, in no search for truth but only the truth i want to hear. Faith is like searching for control in life that we cannot obtain, we cannot heal ourselves for we lack the control to do so, so we searched for a greater power... now on to my deciphering hmmmhmmhmh

    Accidents: could be referring to the randomness of life and how different events occur, that create true accidents... such as life itself...

    "I'm not sure what's worse":
    Both worlds are bad in his perception of life, when waiting is still waiting.

    "the waiting or the waiting room":
    Waiting would be on earth, and waiting room would be in purgatory of christian faith.

    "You're next sir" becomes a cruel taunt to you:
    Would be in line waiting to find out if your accepted into heaven or to fall to hell as shown in many cartoons.

    "recycled air, the smell of sleep and disinfectant":
    To be honest this goes more towards the hospital idea of the song meaning... or perhaps it means he can smell but not feel total rest yet because he is yet to reach heaven and is still in line waiting.

    "Your god is a two door elavator":
    Christians believe god decides heaven or hell or us, one door opens transcending us to heaven, one opens and you fall to hell. Elavators go up and down. :)


    "Do they even cure you": Does faith in god make you feel safe and protected, immortal.
    (CUT ME OPEN DRUG ME):

    "Or is it just to humour us before we die":
    Perhaps faith was a joke, to comfort us of letting go.

    "(REPAIR ALL MY DEFECTS)":
    Some say gods love makes a person perfect, perhaps he is yelling for him to repair his internal believes so he could have faith again.

    "If Only we could heal ourselves":
    If we could heal ourselves we would not need god, for we would be immortal.

    "We wouldn't need to be hooked up to these machines":
    Machines such as faith that cure us and act as a life line to some people for meaning in life, perhaps even music,drugs,sex for its plural and could point to different things.

    "Whoa whoa whoa...": Orgasm

    "Let's redefine what it means to heal": Seek and find truth, redefine the laws of our existance.




    The song appears to be a metaphor and not childish. I listen to alot of Mewithoutyou, Circa Survive and they use many different metaphors to discuss their faith or love interests. I suggest you check out their lyrics... they amaze me everytime.
    Thank you for reading...
