I am on the brink of losing everything
Hanging on the edge of every word she says
And you were never there
You were never there

She stabs deep into me
Am I too blind to see what this has done to me
She stabs deep into me
Am I too numb to feel this anymore

You were the one who could save me
You were the one who abandoned me

I am patiently waiting here to see
Which of us survives
When all of this collides with reality

She stabs deep into me
Am I too blind to see what this has done to me
She stabs deep into me
Am I too numb to feel this anymore

You were never there.

    General Comment"You were the one who could save me You were the one who abandoned me" I think this song is about suicide.

    General CommentI think that this is about a girl he lost and was waiting to get her back but she did not want him back. But I also agree with your suicide theory too.

    General CommentI think this is about someone who he loves betrays him and hurts him, but he doesn't realize it and when he does, he just can't seem to care. but she's what he needs to survive. He is starting to come to terms with what she did, and he's mad.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who he fell in love with but she didn't feel the same about him and even though he loved her that much she was never there for him. Then I agree with KingALrock that he might of committed suicide. But maybe not because then "I'm patiently waiting to see which of us survives when this collides with reality" wouldn't make sense. Great song though.

    General CommentI heard this song again somewhere a while ago, and damn, can I relate to it now. I recently got out of a relationshit strangely similar to the one he's singing about. I thought getting her out of my life would be easy, but it was then I realized just how deep the wounds were. My love made me blind to the fact I was just being used, a rung on the ladder, nothing more. Charming, eh?

    Anyways, about the "I'm patiently waiting to see which of us survives when this collides with reality" bit, I think hes talking about who would walk away when his dream-world with her comes crashing down. He;s wondering who would be more hurt by the bitter remains of his unreturned love , though he already knows the answer.

    General Commentyea I think it's definitely about losing a chick and realizing that she was just using you.
