I can't stop thinking about it
I don't like living without it
So please don't take, take, take it away
So find another way
Things get so complicated
Frustration's overrated
Somebody please don't take, take, take it away
There's got to be a better way
For us to find our way around
But for now we'll just have to say

Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out tonight
Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out tonight

All of these weak reactions
All start with stupid actions
Somebody please take, take, take it away
So find another way
So long I've concentrated
Emotions overstated
So please don't take, take, take it away
There's got to be a better way
For us, for us to find our way around
But for now we'll just have to say

Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out tonight
Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out tonight

Things can get so complicated
I'm frustrated
There's confusion in my head
Things can get so complicated
I'm frustrated
There's confusion in my head
Its times these that I need to stop and think
Make all of me start to fit the missing link
Down on my knees
It's my mind that's leaving me
God help me please, to make sense of this

Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out tonight
Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
And I don't know if I can find a way around
To work it out
Sometimes I lose my mind
Sometimes I don't know why
To work it out

    General CommentWow, Pillar is such an awesome band, it's too bad not more of their songs have been commented on...anyways...I think this song is about an addiction, perhaps drugs or alcohol or cutting or something.

    This is just where he's talking about how addicting it is, he's craving it, he can't stop thinking about it, and he doesn't want anyone to interfere with it.

    When the going gets tough, he turns to his habit/addiction for stress relief, even though he knows there's a better way.

    Here he's just saying that sometimes his vision gets clouded or whatever and he just sorta loses his mind and falls back into his old habits...He doesn't know another way to deal with his problems...

    He may see, hear, experience, etc., something "triggering" and his automatic reaction is this habit of his, no matter how small or trivial this "stimulant" is...

    So long I've concentrated

    Here he could just be saying that even the simplest of things can make him start this habit of his again.

    And finally, here's where it all comes to a head, where push comes to shove, and maybe he even breaks, but he realizes that he desperately needs to change and cries out to God for help.

    ...At least that's what I get from all this. Any other thoughts?
