Here we in are red
Suffocating in this tie
Down with you with me
Unable to breathe force fed
Blind to this so long
Thread in mouth all senses gone
Leaves my back my chest
Six feet down it's buried dead

Turn to your back and walk away

(cut out the face, do as I say)
Twisting and turning why isn't this working
(cut out the face) For what cause
(do as I say) At what cost
Twisting and turning why isn't this working

Beg plead and scream
Show me what you will
I’ll watch straight faced
Not another cheek
Eyes swollen
A shape I'd like to kill
Here you are in red
Stunned as you may feel

Turn to your back and walk away

(cut out the face, do as I say)
Twisting and turning why isn't this working
(cut out the face) For what cause
(do as I say) At what cost
Twisting and turning why isn't this working

I'm lifting a burden
Pointless diversion

Just try

    General CommentI get the sense that someone, maybe a person he was dating, just confessed to him. This person tries to apologize, but he doesn't accept.

    That's what I got from it anyway.

    General CommentIt seems as though it represents a form of anger and rebellion toward the prejudiced beliefs of society's majority

    General Commentsorry about the first comment..i was a bit excited when i got this one.. It may be about being done with something..Like when you have a job your really hate..and finally you convince yourself to quit. Or when your boss or even the government tells you to do something, and you hate being told what to do. It could be about questioning authority also.

    General CommentI think it has to do with a relationship between 2 people. It seems like he doesn't even want to be with her " suffocating in this tie". Maybe she's too demanding and needy. She told him something out of character or maybe a secret she had hidden and now he's not really into her anymore and she's just wasting her time trying to stay with him and she's shocked that he's now going away from her and moving on. That's just what I think.

    General CommentIm thinking its some kind of internal battle. with the chorus it sounds like a voice is telling him to do something (Cut out the face) For what cause? (Do as i say) At what cost

    it might be about what to do in a relationship, though i do see some sense in what moremac said as well
