And I wondered why you came for all this
After so long
When it ripped into you like the son you never were
And I don't think this is - what you wanted now


It feels alright but that's a lie that's always near
Sit around and blame the one that put you here
I laugh out loud to drown it out
So I can breathe and feel the space surround me

And I wondered why you never doubted getting (fair/fame)
When it pulls you down and turns out over (when it may)
Why are you always in
a fight with me


You will always end up here

    General Commentit's talking about how someone who's never been there comes back trying to start over like nothing happend in the first place, but the other doesn't want that because it's not fair. i think. correct me if i'm wrong...

    General CommentI think it's about being driven to insanity or depression. That, or having to go to rehab.

    General Commenti think there may be a few versions of this song or something because where it says:
    Why are you always in
    A fight with me

    on my song it says:
    Why do you always
    End up right back here

    anyway, to me this song could possibly be about a drug addiction or self mutilation.

    And I wondered why you came for all this
    After so long
    When it ripped into you like the son you never were
    And I don't think this is - what you wanted now
    - the first two lines could be about how he stopped the drug/cutting/whatever it is and now he's doing it again.. he doesn't understand why he's so addicted to it basically. i'm not sure about the third line, i have an idea but i'm keeping it to myself haha. the last line is pretty self explanitory, he doesn't want to be this way.


    It feels alright but that's a lie that's always near
    Sit around and blame the one that put you here
    - i love these lines, they're my favorite in the whole song.. this addiction, it convinces him that it makes everything okay, makes everything better.. but that's not true at all, it's lie he tells himself all the time. instead of blaming himself for it, he blames whoever drove him to this addiction

    Why do you always
    End up right back here
    - i like this line. i think he's almost asking the addiction how it always ends up coming back when he doesn't want it at all.

    You will always end up here
    - saying how he'll never be able to give it up, it'll always come back

    i may be wrong on soo many levels but thats my interpretation! i love marianas trench so much

    General Commenti know the 3rd line it wrong, just dont know what the lyrics actually are for that.
    i'm just gonna point out some corrections if u dont mind =)

    "so i can breath and feel the space AROUND me"
    "and i wonder why you're never doubted getting NEAR (?)"
    "it pulls you down and throws you over"
    "why do you always
    end up right back here"

    so those are the corrections, i'll be able to tell u for sure once i get the album. =)
