Tearing out my hair
On a bedroom floor
Empty all the meds
Never anymore
For sure
Throbbing in my flesh
Breaking out in scarlet swords
Therapy I've been enslaved
I think I'll medicate this rage

So now I've crossed the line
(Tearing out my on a bedroom floor)

Fixing up the drugs
With a tiny flame
Put 'em in my lungs
And forget my name
I blame my parents for molesting me
With self-fulfilling prophecies
The teacher for indulging me
His shit dressed up in fury, fear and shame

So now I've crossed the line
(Put 'em in my lungs, forget my name)

High and I'll drive
I'll get high and I'll drive

If I were the keys
Then where would I be
If it's up to me
Then I will be free
If I were the keys
Then where would I be
If it's up to me
Then I will be free

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

    General Commenti cant actually hear them sing much

    i think this songs clearly about how max feels like he's being watched and he wants to get out. but he doesnt know he's bipolar yet

    General Commentthis song could soo be longer. 2 and a half minutes is bullshit. thats the main thing i dont like about the new album, how short the songs are.

    General CommentI think it is about how he feels that he has a bunch of pressure on his shoulders and the only escape is drugs and alcohol

    General CommentI agree with pretty much everyone. It's about escaping his problems and all the pressures by using drugs and alcohol. Ha, but same as Carrie said, I love the way he sings in this one. Haha, and I too, would love to bang him.

    General Comment"if i were the keys then where would i be?"
    probably my favorite lyric on the entire album I love how Say Anything can make the most mundane statements such powerful emotional points in their songs
