You know you've hit rock bottom
when you're mumbling the words
to all her favorite songs
‘til the neighbors hear your drunken slurs
You know the end is creeping up when all that you can feel
were the faint reminisce to touching her; wishing they were real

You know you've hit rock bottom
when you constantly refuse
to take down all the photographs of the times when she was with you
You know the end is nigh when you repeatedly deny
the fact that she is in the Earth and you
never got to say goodbye

Marigold withers away and this world never felt so cold
My Marigold, oh it's a miracle that you kept me alive this long
I'm seriously contemplating chewing off my tongue
to prevent from screaming out your name and the endless nights to come
I'm seriously contemplating chewing off my tongue
to prevent from screaming out your name and these endless nights to come

    General Commentit's not about a break up..
    "the fact that she is in the Earth and you
    never got to say goodbye"
    sounds to me like marigold died.

    General CommentIt seems it's about how he's dealing with the death of a girl he loved, and how he can never have her there with him ever again.

    And I agree with the idea of this being about a death of a girl, j5gaydos points it out directly. This song is simply amazing, I wonder why id didnt make the album as a song instead of "PC only" - nevertheless, its a brilliant track.
