I want you to know that I see
All the reasons why you fail
I've seen all your motivations
Ones for good and ones for hell

When you close your eyes to see
The truth that's inside me
May you hold your breath to breathe
Your empty reality

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

I was pouring out of passion
To light the step you're on
You choose not to hear or waken
All thats left is you alone

When you close your eyes to see
The truth that's inside me
May you hold your breath to breathe
Your empty reality

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

You can't limit me
With all your gross mistakes

If you had eyes to see
Down inside your stomach
Then you would understand
What I mean
Who I am
Who I am

    General CommentI think this song is about abortion, because lacy says,
    "If you had eyes to see, down inside your stomach".

    Plus I think lacys mom was a pregnant teen, so she may have considered abortion. I think because lacy says,
    "Then you would understand, what I mean, who I am."

    I think she means that this person cant just get an abortion, because she chose to do it when she says,
    "You cant limit me, with all your gross mistakes."

    General CommentPersonally, I think this song is about a person who is going through a hard time in their life, like a death in the family or something, and think that no one else knows or understands the pain they're feeling, but one person knows, and they have no idea that they do, they might not even know this person exists. But this person understands their pain and wants them to acknowledge their existence.

    General Commenti think it could mean that, but i also think it means someone who is oblivious to somethings like " I was pouring out of passion
    To light the step you're on
    You choose not to hear or waken"
    it says in the Bible that some people in there faith, sometimes you get focused on other things, and sometimes you forget about your faith and you "fall asleep" like, you just forget like in the song "whispering fingertips" the lyric " walking around in my sleep, running into walls i cannot see" it's like time passes you by and you just forget or just fall out of your faith, and its like God is saying " i was pouring out of passion, to light the step your on" like saying He was trying to help but you ignored or didn't realize, " you choose not to hear or waken" obviously this person shut Him out or just ignored or didn't realize and if that persond idn't realize it's like they ignored the message and they still feel alone, but He's saying " you can't limit me..." no matter what you do in life, even if you feel like it's the end, your always forgiven, people make mistakes, even murder, or abortion, if you ask for forgiveness, you'll get it... cause if you ask and God just says no, then what was the poin of jesus dying for our sins? He didn't just say " specific sins." He clearly says "ALL SIN" and maybe that girl is pregnant, that i'm unsure, lol

    General CommentI think this song is about abortion.
    A woman who's pregnant, and God is telling her to keep the baby, but the woman won't listen to Him.

    General Commentthis song could be about bolimia. she says inside your stomach
    and these gross mistakes

    it could mean a person is so grossed out with themselves about throwing up and they just feel so bad about their sins and thats what makes them blind to the fact that god can still fogive.

    but its more likly to be about a pregnant woman and she doesnt want her baby and sees it as a gross mistake (she could have been raped or drumk or got pregnant to get revenge on someone)but god is saying if you saw inside your stomach at the amazing way this baby is formed you would see how awesome i am and how great my creation is. like it says in the bible let ppl see all of gods great deeds so they can give him praise. and then you would understand that i give new life and can make you into a new creation also by fogiving your sins

    Song MeaningThis song is totally about abortion!! I think it's from a person's perspective whose mother maybe considered or tried to have an abortion, but didn't. (Maybe it happened to Lacey...her mother was single, and probably somewhere in her teens.) "I've seen all your motivations, ones for good and ones for hell," refers to the motivations of the attempted abortion. The good ones ("I don't want my child to starve, and I can't take care of it") and the bad ones ("This is a foul creature, and I don't want it!")
    If you had eyes to see down inside your stomach, you would understand that the thing inside of you is a living human being, a precious child.

    My InterpretationI always thought she said
    "I was falling out of fashion"
    Am I the only one?

    General CommentIn a different perspective I believe this song maybe somebody who maybe pregnant or something like that Because she says "if you had eyes to see down inside your stomach" So see the purpose of new life. So even through all the mistakes and everything its still going to happen. Maybe doesn't want this new life and so She or the person wants to die just to get rid of it...Thats my perspective.
