"Can't Heal You" as written by and Bathroy/moody/snell/spencer....
The deeper you get, the farther you fall down
The closer I get, the more you dissolve

You're lost inside, your pale addictions
Bury you, with the demons in the ash

Can't heal you, don't want to
Cause you can't save your-fuckin'-self
Can't heal you, don't need to
Cause you won't save yourself
You are the one who made the decision
Stuck in a prison, shattered and broken
I am the one who, expected to heal you,
Save you from drowning in your endless nightmare
Blessed be, the disillusioned
The banished misfit and the cursed hollow son

Can't heal you, I don't want to
Cause you can't save yourself
Can't help you, don't need to
Cause you won't save yourself

We're taught to perish but fade away
Become the haunted and die as slaves

Can't heal you, I don't want to
Cause you can't save yourself
Can't help you, don't need to
Cause you won't save yourself
Can't heal you, don't want to
Cause you can't save your-fuckin'-self
Can't heal you, don't need to
Cause you won't save yourself

    General CommentI used this song to describe my ex all the time. He's in jail and is goin to prison and when we were together he expected me to make his life better by staying with him but he would never accept the fact that he made his decisions and he has no one but himself to blame for gettin put in that situation.

    Awesome Song.

    General CommentThe "FUCK! FUCK FUCK FUCK!" at the end just adds so much to this song. It shows just how exasperated Ivan is. Excellent song.

    5FDP FTW.

    General CommentTo me this song tells
    "You come to me for advice but you take it, turn it around and basically tell me to fuck off So i aint gonna help you. But i will be the one laughing when you fuck up your own life by trying to be like everyone else.
    "its your fault you feel this way, You are the one that put the wall up. But wait, I wont tell you because you "don't need my help" You can do it by yourself right? hahaha"

    General Commenthm. I'm surprised no one has mentioned this.
    I think it's about a girl with an eating disorder. anorexia nervosa to be exact.

    "the deeper you get, the farther you fall down"- the deeper you get into an eating disorder, the harder you fall, the more you push others away, the more you distance yourself from everyone. also explains "the closer i get, the more you dissolve."

    "You're lost inside, You're pale and rib shows"- she does'nt know who she is, she's pale and she looks dead from the lack of nourishment, and her ribs are showing.

    "I'll bury you, With the demons and the ash."- this is saying that she is going to die soon, and she'll be buried with the demons that told her that she was never good enough, never pretty enough, and never thin enough.

    "you were the one who made the decision, stuck in a prison, shattered and broken...[etc]"
    he is saying that she made the decision to have this disorder, and now she's stuck, and when you have an eating disorder it does feel like you're trapped in a prison, and you are broken. you've completely lost who you are.
    he was expecting to be able to help her, and save her, but all she did was push him away. so now he's fed up, and she can just go save herself.

    "taught to perish, and fade away, become the haunted, and die as slaves"
    you teach yourself to starve, you want to fade away and become nothing, become invisible. you're haunted by the demons, and you die as a slave to this eating disorder because it completely takes over your life,it controls every thought, and every aspect of your life.

    well. thats what I gathered from the song.=/
