VERSE 1:
I'll start from the top
She was staying out all night
And I was next to the phone counting down the seconds
I know it's sick, but I can't help it
And I'm not one to jump to conclusions
But I need this prescription to help me find a solution

PRE CHORUS:
And I keep your words written on my arm
To bare the truth and remember what you are

CHORUS:
Doctor you gotta listen
My heart stopped beating when she said she adored him
So find a scalpel and cut in deep
I gotta get her ghost out of me
Doctor listen listen
Put me under and start the incision
Find a scalpel and cut in deep
I gotta get her ghost out of me tonight

VERSE 2:
So rip me open
Pull out my organs
There's gotta be a part of me that isn't so forgiving
And I'm not one to be so obsessive
But I can't go on breathing if she's the reason I'm living
Close your eyes count back from ten

BRIDGE:
You've pushed me for the last time
(Oh), now you've gone and done it
(Oh), now you've gone and done it
You've pushed me for the last time
(Oh), now you've gone and done it
(Oh), now you've gone and done it
All we know is how to hurt
To twist the knife and make it worse
All we know is how to hurt
To twist the knife and make it worse

LAST CHORUS:
Doctor you gotta listen
My heart stopped beating when she said she adored him
So find a scalpel and cut in deep
I gotta get her ghost out of me
I say doctor listen listen
Put me under and start the incision
Find a scalpel and cut in deep
I gotta get her ghost out of me tonight

CHANT LINE:
You've pushed me for the last time
Oh, now you've gone and done it
Oh, now you've gone and done it

    Song MeaningThe way I see it, the speaker is talking about an ex-girlfriend whom maybe cheated on him, but he cannot get over her.
    "I'll start from the top
    She was staying out all night
    And I was next to the phone counting down the seconds
    I know it's sick, but I can't help it
    And I'm not one to jump to conclusions
    But I need this prescription to help me find a solution"
    (The speaker was talking about how the relationship was not going so well and how he felt distrusting with her staying out all night.)
    "And I keep your words written on my arm
    To bare the truth and remember what you are"
    (Now he is talking about how he is remembering how his ex hurt him.)
    "Doctor you gotta listen
    My heart stopped beating when she said she adored him
    So find a scalpel and cut in deep
    I gotta get her ghost out of me
    Doctor listen listen
    Put me under and start the incision
    Find a scalpel and cut in deep
    I gotta get her ghost out of me tonight"
    (Basically, he is saying he needs to get over, no matter what it takes.)
    "So rip me open
    Pull out my organs
    There's gotta be a part of me that isn't so forgiving
    And I'm not one to be so obsessive
    But I can't go on breathing if she's the reason I'm living
    Close your eyes count back from ten"
    (Now he is saying that he needs to find away to just stop forgiving and start forgetting but it is hard to forget about someone you love.)
    "You've pushed me for the last time
    (Oh), now you've gone and done it
    (Oh), now you've gone and done it
    You've pushed me for the last time
    (Oh), now you've gone and done it
    (Oh), now you've gone and done it
    All we know is how to hurt
    To twist the knife and make it worse
    All we know is how to hurt
    To twist the knife and make it worse"
    (Finally, he is starting to get over her and telling her that he has had enough with them constantly hurting each other.)
    Well, that is what I got from it. Hopefully, I got close to what it really means. :]
