"Ether" as written by Seth James Johnson, Joseph Matthew Lussa, Ryan O'connor and Daniel James Stevens....
Can someone please just shake the lies out of me?
It seems that every word I say
Don't mean a thing
I've tried so hard to reel you closer to freedom
With every cast, I just exhaust all my options

[Chorus]
Tonight, tonight
We're gonna make all the headlines
It's so damn hard
To push my pride to the side

Take back everything I said
Know that I'm never coming home again
I know that it's for the best
Come back when I know I've been
Washed clean of my emptiness
With these words, I'm leaving less

I fear I'm constantly restricted by shackles
This so-called ball and chain
Is all I have ever known
I've climbed some mountains
I thought I'd never tackle
They gave me sense of hope
And most of all, sense of home

[Chorus]

Take back everything I said
Know that I'm never coming home again
I know that it's for the best
Come back when I know I've been
Washed clean of my emptiness
With these words, I'm leaving less

Oh, girl, you know
Everywhere I wanna go
I won't stop, I can't stop
Till I get just the one I want (x2)

Tonight, tonight
We're gonna make all the headlines
Oh, it's so damn hard

Take back everything I said
Know that I'm never coming home again
I know that it's for the best
Come back when I know I've been
Washed clean of my emptiness
With these words, I'm leaving less

    General CommentTake back everything I said
    Know that I'm never coming home again
    I know that it's for the best
    Come back when I know I've been
    Washed clean, all but emptiness
    With these words, I'm leaving less

    That's what I got?

    General CommentWith these words, I'm leaving less

    i think that's it's
    "and/with these words are meaningless"
    i can't tell if it's and or with but i'm pretty sure it's meaningless. i'm thinking that it might be and though cuz that would make more sense, but i don't know.

    General CommentI'm just guessing, but i think he's just kind of admitting to being a horrible person and a liar and he's going to leave the girl he's with because he's just using her. He knows he has a problem, but he also realizes he's always been like this and can't stop no matter how hard he tries
