I can feel my aorta splitting through the heart,
dumping need and sending sickness to the gut.
yeah, now I'm feeling lovable
to the point where grieving is impossible.
Paranoia slowly working up your spine.
Won't be long before its ruining the night.
You're still surprised.
I've been down this road before.
I recognize it

It's burning from the start.
It's tearing me apart.
It's blocking all the detours,
pushing alcohol to heart,
sending metal to the brain.
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Minute to minute, hour to hour.
I'm not the same.

I wanna break.
Ever since I could remember, thats the way I've been.
Now I'm giving it up to the night and the moment.
The friends that I had and the ringing in my ears
never make me nervous.

I sigh in comfort in the darkness.
There's something in the light
that impresses the nodes in my mind.
Maybe I'll never figure it out,
but then again, that's the only reason I...

I'm burning from the start.
I'm tearing it apart.
I'm blocking all the detours.
1, 2, 3, 4.

I wanna break.
Ever since I could remember, thats the way I've been.
Now I'm giving it up to the night and the moment.
The friends that I had and the ringing in my ears
never make me nervous.

The miles on my feet through the pain.

    General CommentI added this last night. As far as I know, there's no official written version of these lyrics, but the version that's floating around on other sites is pretty bad. This is as close as I could get.

    As for what it means... I have no clue. Seems like a huge metaphor of the human body, based on all the bodily references.
