simply slide in my sheets
and simply fall asleep
should she shatter my heart
and scatter these parts among these these shaded streets
in a shallow attempt to save her skin
then I simply wasn't shooting for stars
tell me again are you the reason I breathe
or why I die trying

and I reckon this weapon I yield
this is her reason for revenge
her chance to right the words that I wrote
her chance to take this from me
trust that I will find my way out
I'll cut the throat to my better half
and you can choose what you'd rather have

could my concern kill
a car crash in her body as she swallows each pill
kill her with kindness
count on clouds
to slow her down

and I reckon this weapon I yield
this is her reason for revenge
her chance to right the words that I wrote
her chance to take this from me
trust that I will find my way out
I'll cut the throat to my better half
and you can choose what you'd rather have

limp and lifeless
my body without it's frame
scream my name three times if you love me
it's the only way to save me

crows can't fly with comets girl
don't get caught in the current

    General Commentso I really like this song!
    Annd I think it might be about a relationship in which the girl is really messed up and the guy is like trying to help her but she doesnt exactly achknowledge him as much as she should and all the help this girl needs is wearing him down.
    ....ifff that makes any sense at all! hahaha
    Fell free to completely disagree with me C:

    General Commentsimply slide in my sheets
    and simply fall asleep
    should she shatter my heart
    and scatter these parts among these these shaded streets
    in a shallow attempt to save her skin
    then I simply wasn't shooting for stars
    tell me again are you the reason I breathe
    or why I die trying - So this guy obviously has doubts about the woman he's with. He lets her next to him but if she shatters his heart he'll just either make up the excuse that he wasn't shooting for stars anyway or he really wasn't shooting for the stars.

    and I reckon this weapon I yield
    this is her reason for revenge
    her chance to right the words that I wrote
    her chance to take this from me
    trust that I will find my way out
    I'll cut the throat to my better half
    and you can choose what you'd rather have - I agree with winzip17 that the woman has some baggage that makes her act irrational. I feel like the weapon he's referring to is his kindness and the words are his compliments but either she doesn't believe his sincerity or something else. So she can take his innocence from him by trampling on his kindness. He vows he'll find a way out of this lunacy and he'll stop being the nice guy (cut the throat of his better half) and then she can choose if she wants the nice guy or the guy who says "fuck that."

    could my concern kill
    a car crash in her body as she swallows each pill
    kill her with kindness
    count on clouds
    to slow her down - Here I think he asks himself if he is aiding her irrationality by being genuinely concerned. Perhaps the clouds signifies careless treatment. Maybe she's just used to abusive or unreliable relationships where she is treated less than kind.

    limp and lifeless
    my body without it's frame
    scream my name three times if you love me
    it's the only way to save me - He's asking for her to reassure him that he's not out solo on this.

    crows can't fly with comets girl
    don't get caught in the current - Idk, maybe he's referring to his statement before about not shooting for stars. He says, "Don't let me down and become a black bird. I saw a mockingbird and I don't want to see us swept away."
