I know your not ready to live
Are you ready to die?
'Cause under your skin under your skin under skin
Is a regular guy

You lost your hold
You didn't know
This is a low

Everything that was important to me
Didn't matter to you
And you didn't try didn't try try to follow me
When I turned my back you followed someone new

You stole your mind
You didn't know
This is a low, this is a low

This is low this is low life
A world where people walk by night
So by day an average man
But night time brings the creature from the can
Sometimes you scream out loud
But there's always safety in a crowd
You're not alone you're not alone you know

This is a low,
This is a low,
This is a lonely time a lonely time,
A lonely time
(x2)

Its like my skin, turned inside out
And there's no silver here in this cloud
It's like a love that's turning sour
It's letting go
This is a low

This is low this is low life
A world where people walk by night
So by day an average man
But night time brings the creature from the can
Sometimes you scream out loud
But there's always safety in a crowd
You're not alone you're not alone you know

This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)
This is a low (this is a low)

    General CommentCan't beleive nobody has commented.
    This song is actually beautiful, I think it's about feeling really down, maybe about a broken relationship?
    All I know is that I love it!

    General Commentis this part actually in the song?

    "You lost your hold
    You didn't know
    This is a low

    Everything that was important to me
    Didn't matter to you
    And you didn't try didn't try to get in bed with me
    When I turn my back you were with someone new

    General Commentthis reminds me of my friends in the music industry, especially ones i've dated. they really would love to lead this normal life, stress free from the business, but get sucked right back in.. and it kind of leaves friendships and relationships tattered and torn because they could never truly be normal.

    My Opinion"I know your not ready to live
    Are you ready to die"

    That's such a powerful line. I have 0% clue as to what this song means, but it still touches my heart. It's the kind of song where you can't just interpret it from the lyrics' point of view. You have to hear the music.

    General Commentthe song tells you what it means...
    "Its letting go
    This is a low"

    it's about getting over somebody or "letting go"
    it's about how the person they loved didnt turn out how they expected.
    this song is relevent to anyone and anyone can make it personal.
    thats why it's so beautiful :)

    My InterpretationIt sounds like a song about someone wanting to commit suicide and the singer is trying to talk him out of it.
