"i wish i was" as written by and Gregory E Dulli Scott Ford....
Strings of your death tied to your breath
All that's been seen cannot be unseen

Deeper you fall, the places you crawl
To find you're unclean, unsaved, defeated
By self and no one else, my love

Tongue tied, obsessed, mesmerized
I acquiesce and step into the machine again
Don't breathe, don't tell, my belle, listen

Deep in the garden, I wait for you now
Under the weight of the leaves
That do bend on the bough
Come save me

    My InterpretationAfter reading the lyrics thoroughly I believe like the below post, it is a call for help. Seems to me the women who this person singing has fallen for has really fallen into a deep abyss and he's trying desperately to find her & save her if possible. By saving her, he would be by default saving himself. If he loses her completely he feels it would be like him dying himself. So if he saves her he saves them both or if he doesn't then in essence, they both die the same death.

    General CommentThe last song on Powder Burns.....perfectly placed! The horns really make the song. Smooth & sexy in sound, but honest & raw when you read the words. I think this is a call for help.
