Forced, we forced feeding you lines, feeding you.
Look how high I'm jumping from, you'll never make it.

I know what it feels like
giving into something you don't understand

Forced, we forced feeding you lines, feeding you.
Look how high I'm jumping from, you'll never make it.

Walk into the light,
giving into something you don't understand.
This sort of thing gets you out of mind right before...
This sort of thing gets you out of mind right before impact.

Calcium waste, glitter and falling like icicles.
Calcium waste, glitter and falling like icicles.
Guess who's next?
You're just as guilty as them.

Forced, we forced feeding you lines, feeding you.
Look how high I'm jumping from, you'll never make it.
This sort of thing gets you out of mind right before...
This sort of thing gets you out of mind right before impact.

    General CommentI met Anthony a few months ago, and a few friends of mine were convinced it was about coke addiction, but when we asked him, he told us it was about having to get out of a difficult situation, but being scared to do it.

    It's basically about a girl jumping out of a window, because she's in a burning building, and she either has to jump out of the window and fall to her death, or wait to be consumed by the flames.

    The name, 'The Glorious Nosebleed' refers to how people in high altitude get nosebleeds.

    My InterpretationThe meaning to this song is obvious if you've ever even tried cocaine at the right time. If cocaine is taken at the right moment with the right mindset, it will show you the light. I absolutely mean what I say here. You discover subconscious truths that if not thought through properly, can end up fucking up your psyche. Life is the imagination of our true self. When you find your "higher self", you will live under that light with the gifts it gives you. These gifts are truly amazing. Take advantage of every opportunity you have when altering your state of consciousness. Actually take the time and find meaning to your subconscious wasteland. Peace is within. Truth is within. But be weary, for the gifts must be used wisely or you will lose your sanity and spiral into lifetimes bound to karma. Religions are only stories to guide your mindset to finding the truth. Yes, there are gods, but they are simply thought forms. They are webs of energy given existence through our imagination or beliefs. All there is, is you. Find you and embrace it. If you don't, you lose yourself among the collective whole lingering in conformity for lifetimes until you understand. I have been there and back again too many times...on the edge of insanity looking down at the horrifying images of humanity while falling ever closer to those nightmares. And I fell simply because I abused the knowledge that was given to me. I'm lost and I only just began. I beg whoever finds the light to anchor yourself to it by pursuing every curiosity you have. That way when or if you descend, you can have little memos posted up all around you. Embrace spirituality. Humanity is evolving. You can either be caught in the dark waves that resonate off of this large evolution or you can get up, figure it out, and help the whole continue evolving.

    General Commenti think this song is more about suicide. "look how high im juping from. youll never make it."
    and
    "This sort of thing get you out of mind right before IMPACT"
    and
    "calcium waste, litter and falling like icicles"
    to me that represents humans. calcium in reference to bones. its like humans falling from the sky like icicles. a lot does go back to drugs like "forced feeding you lines" like line of coke or whatever. maybe thats why suicide was thought of here. i dont really know what anthony meant by this song..but thats what i got out of it.

    General CommentI am almost positive this song is about cocaine addiction. I think it's about how no one is safe from the temptation. i highly doubt it's about suicide because i don't think anthony green writes anything as bluntly as some of you are suggesting.

    General CommentHe also said it was partly about him leaving Saosin.

    General Commentthis has got to be about drugs, specifically cocaine addiction.
    the getting out of a difficult situation, but being scared to do it connects with leaving saosin and cocaine addiction. they are both difficult situations.

    "look how high im jumping from" could connect to how high he would get . . . cocaine, or to mention how touchy or difficult his situation is.

    if im not mistaken calcium is in your blood also. . . and calcium waste glitter and falling like icicles...NOSEBLEED. thats what i think at least.
    you also get nosebleeds from cocaine which could explain that this is about addiction to that drug

    o and lastly "i know what it feels like giving into something you dont understand" also connects to drug addiction. he could be saying he knows what it feels like to have something controlling you and having to give in to addiction that you cant help. or understand
