Hospital, the only thing she knows
Waiting around can feel like forever
She knows she's not there at all
And everything I see repeats over and over.

I, I, I can't breathe.

Eyes toward the silver screen
We watch a tape 'till black
One last romantic scene
We watch the roles played back

It's not right
He leads a tough war

A silver bullet tonight
She's been advised
But nothings right
All the things he's done have come to destroy their lives

And in her mind she's terrified
Of all the things she's yet to find
The moon is full, and she's done her fill of life

Pushed away into the sad life
Where she's waiting most of her life

She's bonded to his ways, she can't be dead
She's been that way for a long time

Hospital, the only thing she knows
Waiting around can feel like forever
She knows she's not there at all
And everything I see repeats over and over

I, I, I can't breathe

Look at you now, all your worries and regrets
(Won't forget, won't forget)

Why she still comes to stay with me.. (I'll forget.)

(Is he okay?..)

(I'm sorry for killing you over this..)

    General CommentI think this song is about 'him' having some kind of problem that's constantly making him go to the hospital. Like maybe a drug problem? And when he says 'everything I see repeats over and over' I think that's what means he has been at the hospital before. I think he feels bad because he's bringin 'her' into these situations so often. Like an abusive husband or... WOW maybe this is about him being abusive and maybe the 'repeats over and over' is how he's been there so many times taking care of her at a hospital.

    She's been advised
    But nothings right
    All the things he's done have come to destroy their lives ---- She knows how he is but still comes back, the things he's done (hurting her) he realizes are fucking things up.

    Why she still comes to stay with me.. (I'll forget.) ---- He doesn't know why she still comes back to him

    (Is he okay?..)
    (I'm sorry for killing you over this..) ---- I think he's gone too far this time and people are wondering if he's gonna be alright cuz he looks rather guilty...

    WOW.. I dont know if thats what it is but oddly enough, tonight that's just completely to a T what i think it means.

    General Commenthaha these lyrics are SO wrong!
    how hard is it to understand what he's saying, are you retarded?

    Hospital, the only thing she knows
    Waiting around can feel like forever
    She knows she's not there at all
    And everything I see repeats over and over.

    I, I, I can't breathe.

    Eyes toward the silver screen
    We watch it fade to black
    One last climatic scene.
    We watch the roles play back

    It's not right
    He leads a double life

    A silver bullet tonight
    She's been advised
    But nothings right
    All the things he's done have come to destroy their lives

    And in her mind she's terrified
    Of all the things she's yet to find
    The moon is full, and she's done her fill of life

    Pushed away into the side-lines
    Where she's waiting most of her life

    She's bonded to his ways, she can't be dead
    She's been that way for a long time

    Hospital, the only thing she knows
    Waiting around can feel like forever
    She knows she's not there at all
    And everything I see repeats over and over

    I, I, I can't breathe

    Look at you now, all your worries and regrets
    (Won't forget, won't forget)

    Why she still comes to stay with me.. (I'll forget.)

    (Is he okay?..)

    (I'm sorry theres no visitors)
