The acid reflux in my throat hasn't appeased my taste for bitter blondes
I've twisted so many necks and now their souls daily blind my mind

Your presence, I took for granted
I deceived your confidence

I'll never achieve emotional numbness
Nor will I enjoy a single peaceful rest

Your presence, I took for granted
I deceived your confidence

Your angelic hand touches my venomous spine
through overwhelming nightmares
I now stand under this Damocles dagger

I'll kill again to lighten apathy towards me
The amazing brightness that makes you so precious
and exceptional tears me apart

I need your presence but my shadow is tarnishing your radiance

I feel remorse but unfortunate events
make my world uglier this morning
Repentance hurts but not enough
Let's start again tonight

    Song MeaningThis is probably my favorite Despised Icon song. From what I can tell, most of it is a metaphor about drinking in order to deal with depression:

    ------

    The acid reflux in my throat hasn't appeased my taste for bitter blondes (beers)

    I've twisted so many necks (twisted bottle necks) and now their souls (alcohol inside) daily blind my mind (get him drunk)

    Your presence, I took for granted (alcohol was there so he used it)
    I deceived your confidence (kinda self explanatory)

    I'll kill again (open more bottles and drink)to lighten apathy towards me (to deal with emotional problems)

    The amazing brightness (I'm assuming the alcohol's ability to intoxicate) that makes you so precious and exceptional tears me apart (drinking all the time is ruining him)

    I feel remorse but unfortunate events (drinking all night)
    make my world uglier this morning (hungover)

    Repentance hurts (being hungover hurts) but not enough
    Let's start again tonight (start drinking again tonight)

    ------

    The rest of the lyrics are pretty much either self explanatory or resemble something else. Very powerful song in my opinion.
