You relate through the bloodline
When you can never take anything that I give
Always wanting to relate through me
I go watch you slowly slip away

You're wanting to put your trust in
When I can see this remedy kickin on
Just to taste it, just to want it
And I can me say it's not my fault

Say it's alright
When i'm coming down
Not again it's so lifelike

Come make it alright
When I'm coming down
Not again I'm fragile

Would you choose me or just abuse me?
When I can never take anything that you give
Always wanting to relate through me
I go watch you slowly slip away

You're wanting to put your trust in
When I can see this remedy kickin on
Just to taste it, just to want it
And I can me say it's not my fault

Say it's alright
When i'm coming down
Not again it's so lifelike

Come make it alright
When I'm coming down
Not again I'm fragile

You see I'll be the one in your darkest time

Should I begin to erase myself?
I'm caught in this picture of you
Should I begin to assess myself?
Tell me it's over

It comes from above with these feelings
It takes you away and it buries your soul again
Your now blessed by ignorance
'cause you want to

So run with me if you must follow
I'll take you away to this place where we can be free
A place I call ecstasy

Now you lie alone
Your chance to stop and stare
God, I kiss your bones
And say it's not my fault

Say it's alright
When I'm coming down
Not again it's so lifelike

Come make it alright
When i'm coming down
Not again i'm fragile

Well you say it's alright
When i'm coming down
Not again it's so lifelike

Come make it alright
When i'm coming down
Not again i'm fragile

    General Commentyeah well it seems to be about ecstasy and coming down after a pill
    not again its so lifelike seems to be saying he doesnt want to come back to the real world (because everything is so great on ecstasy)

    General Commentozziundrgrnd is probably right about the drug thing.

    But, more in depth, I think it's about someone with a drug addiction and they keep getting themselves f**ked up and high or drugged in order to stay away from the real world, because it's to "Lifelike" for them and their too "fragile" to handle it.

    Nice usage of the songs words, eh?

    MemoryThis was the first Karnivool song i ever heard, and now iI think I'm one of the manyfew in the USA who like Karnivool. I heard this song last July, bought Themata and the entire CD blew me away...these guys should be internationally famous.

    Song MeaningSpeaking as a user named AndrewHussie, I can tell you all that the entirety of Homestuck was inspired by Themata, or perhaps vice versa. This song in particular is simply scattered thoughts of Karkat struggling with his black feelings for John.
