Did your arm grow those scars this July
Was it everything you thought it'd be
She broke his arm, while she broke her edge on the Fourth.
Was it what they call a good time
Did the girls find their face to the ground
He's passing out
While she's making out on the porch

Let it go
Watch him go
All we know
Let it go

And there's something about this routine
that makes all of the girls not so clean
We're looking after
our ex-girlfriends laughter it't all I hear
And I hope that you find a safe place
to lay down the sight of your disgrace
Don't look behind
It's filth you will find
as it lines your walls

Let it go
Watch him go
All we know
Let it go

When he holds your hand does he squeeze too tight
We both know these burns on your neck don't insight
Such horrible things
Does his punishment sting?
Hide under your sheets
Hide under your sheets

Let it go
Watch him go
All we know
Let it go

    General Commentthis song is pretty straight forward...I think...Theres this chick
    and shes kind of a slut, thus the

    "while she broke her edge on the Fourth.
    Was it what they call a good time
    Did the girls find their face to the ground
    He's passing out
    While she's making out on the porch"

    and

    "And I hope that you find a safe place
    to lay down the sight of your disgrace"

    so this is the part where she, finds that this isn't the life that she wants.

    "Does his punishment sting?"

    that show the abuse in the relationship, this song hits really close to home, for me, it makes me cry every time I hear it.

    General CommentThis is a pretty sick song and I'm sure there's a story behind it that really hits home with Sullivan, but my closest guess is there's this chick that's been screwing up and he's questioning why she does this. Does "breaking her edge" refer to straightedge and mean that she's having sex? I've never heard the term before...

    General Commentpersonally i dont think that this song has nothing to do with her being a slut or physical abuse.

    To me this song is about a girl who is depressed who cuts her self hense
    "Did your arm grow those scars this July"

    everything after that first line is a flash back.
    this flash back is a semi-good flash back for her.

    "Was it everything you thought it'd be
    She broke his arm, while she broke her edge on the Fourth.
    Was it what they call a good time
    Did the girls find their face to the ground
    He's passing out
    While she's making out on the porch"
    this part is obviously about her losing her virginity to the guy she's with but ends up cheating on him while he's passed out drunk.


    "let it go
    Watch him go
    All we know
    Let it go"
    this part is about her regreting what she did because he's leaving her, but she has to elt it go cause he's not comming back.


    "And there's something about this routine
    that makes all of the girls not so clean
    We're looking after
    our ex-girlfriends laughter it't all I hear
    And I hope that you find a safe place
    to lay down the sight of your disgrace
    Don't look behind
    It's filth you will find
    as it lines your walls"

    this part is now in the present. He's at a party or something where there are a lot of hook ups going on, his ex is also at this place. he cant enjoy himself because he still cares for her but wont give in cause she cheated on him. so basically he loves and hates her at the same time.

    "When he holds your hand does he squeeze too tight
    We both know these burns on your neck don't insight
    Such horrible things
    Does his punishment sting?
    Hide under your sheets
    Hide under your sheets"

    i think the first line of this verse is talking about him in her but just in the 3rd person. i think he's trying to say that he's trying to keep a hold of her in his mind. the burns of the neck are hikkies from who ever she's been hooking up with. "does his punishments sting" is also in 3rd person. i think his punishment is not physical but its him breaking up with her. she hides under her sheets because she misses him and regrets what she did.

    General Commentmaybe its a mixture of all 3, suicide, and her being a slut
    my theory is
    she started cutting herself because she didn't feel enough love out of this relationship, like she felt left out.
    and she realizes cutting isn't working and she looks for love in all opf the wrong places
    [the bedroom]
    and once the boyfirned finds out he abuses her.
    and the whole thing starts all over again
    this song is one of the saddest i have ever heard.

    General Commentyeah, but i think this is just about the slut and abuse, i don't think she is suicidal. the marks on her wrists were prolly from the abusive boyfriend and i think the boyfriend forced her into sex and now the ex is looking back and missing her and thinking he would never do that to her. but thats just my interpretation. who knows what it really means...?
