Run, Tommy, run
Did you get all you want?
Did you drink their world dry?
And extinguish all the sunshine?

I didn't say that I felt the same
You just took it as read
As I closed all the blinds
And put you to bed, and read you all the last rites

It serves as a warning to me
Just like most of these days do
Cause I just wish that I could've just left you there, sitting in your own shit
Cause I know that you would me, too

See, cause I've trawled through all this before
And I've bought that skinny tee
With a big, black gaping hole where the heart should be
That says, "baby, I renounce thee"

Don't you die on me now

A kiss is now a circus show
The big top tent and neon glow
Through spectacles of rainbow red
You never feel your love till it's dead

Arm's length keep him
I stab but don't injure
No blood ever pours
Empty as a hole, and ever-depleting

One and four makes us whole
A bankrupt sea of love
Cannot swim above
Empty as a hole, and ever-depleting

I recoil from the blast
And look around me though
Neither friend nor foe
Empty as a hole, and ever-depleting

    General Commentalmost positive this song is about abandoning a soulmate or your "only twin"

    the first four paragraphs sound like someone is very bitterly heart broken. the last three sound like descriptions of that heart break. especially the last few lines

    I recoil from the blast - losing a soulmate means a huge change in someones life, a blast

    And look around me though,
    neither friend nor foe - no one is there for him/her through any of this

    Empty as a hole, and ever depleting - any enjoyable feelings like trust and love he/she had left them feeling empty as a hole, and the feelings are ever depleting
