It's all I see, It's all I see.
Please take it away.
It's holding me, it's holding me.
Please take it away.
It's more than me, it's more than me.
Please take it away.
It's killing me, it's killing me.
Please take it away.

I run, it follows
I speak, it swallows
I am where it takes me.
I love, it breaks me.

It's under me, it's under me.
Please take it away.
It's watching me, it's watching me.
Please take it away.
It's touching me, it's touching me.
Please take it away.
It's just like me, it's just like me.
Please take it away.

I run, it follows
I speak, it swallows
I am where it takes me.
I love, it breaks me.

    General CommentHonestly...I think it's just about the journey of life. "I am where it takes me." Life, our experiences both good and bad, is what molds us into what we are today. To me this song is basically taking the good, the bad, the cherished, and most horrid memories into one...and trying to create something therapeutic.

    I like to look at it as a reflection of who we are.

    General CommentThis is a song about an addiction..
    It's all I see....It's holding me... Please take it away.
    His drug is all he thinks about. Consuming him. He knows this. He knows it's killing him. Yet wherever else he has to go to get his fix is where he will end up and that could be ANYWHERE. He tries to run but there's no escape. He wants someone/thing to take away the hold it has over him but knows this will never happen. His addiction will always be there. Lingering in the shadow, waiting for him to break. He will forever and always be one decision away from hell. That he loves and hates, equal measures

    General CommentAnyone else think this band's songs are extremely trippy? I've never tried Heroine before and I dont plan on it, but i feel like if I tried Heroine it would be just like a Black Light Burns song. Especially this song, it trips me out.

    General CommentSeems like it might be about some form of mental illness. Depression, schizo, etc.
