    General CommentI think this song is about his broken heart and how the girl basically "killed" him when she left him. His soul is locked inside of his cold body because there is a part of him that still feels but the other is just cold and worthless.
    If that made any sense at all...

    My InterpretationI see the broken heart and the addiction meanings to this. This song related to me as an abusive relationship. It's like two people talking. One is trying to leave the relationship, be free of the abuse, The other is trying to keep them, manipulating them to stay.

    Person One "It's cold it's hard and I'm locked inside this.(This being a bad relationship or literally inside a house or something) I've gone too far I can't rectify this (They can't explain why they put up with the abuse for so long, they feel weak) I walk away falling into" (They try to leave but they keep going back)

    Person Two "It's such a shame, how I'll miss you. I feel shot can you reach me?" (They are trying to make person one feel bad and pulling the strings they know to get them to stay)

    Person One "You cannot bring me back (Fighting to leave) And I'll always sink into nothing (Falling for Person Two's lies) And I'm on my knees again (Begging for forgiveness on something they didn't do) And I can't believe that it's always
    Under my skin" (They hate that they can't seem to pull away. Addicted in away, feels like they can't function without the other person)

    Person Two "Don't leave me out, leave me hanging"

    Person One "Don't keep me down, down and dragging. You're so sure that I won't splinter. You're so good, you're so good."

    Person Two "Shift time to come back in line" (It's like "Stop this non-sense, behave how your supposed to")

    Person One "'Cause when I tried to embrace my life, Gonna dry up, was it something you're fed?" (Wants to get away, be free of the "poison"/lies they are being fed by person two, fix themselves)

    Person Two "Got you sickened was it something I said?"

    All it did was rain (The sun never shines in a relationship like this)
