I get up and I only wanna go to sleep
I wake up to keep tricks living days on me
She says my confusion shows as the holes in me
I say I'm too thirsty to think, need a drink
Cause I lost my soul to the needle, to the ink [x2]

And she knows how she kills me with the polaroids! [x4]

I know that you wish I never had been born
I guess that you give me more to cry for
She says kids are cool to be but cool to fear
I say I'm out of this shit I'm in
I am lead I can get disconnected
I can get so dead!

She knows how she kills me with the polaroids! [x4]
with the polaroids!
She knows how she kills me with the polaroids! [x4]

    General CommentI think this is about being depressed, and as a result his girlfriend is getting more and more frustrated with his lethargy. And she shows him himself, how bad it is, how unlike his old self he really is, like she's showing him a photo she just took, and what he sees there kills him, makes him more depressed.

    General Commenti don't think that the "polaroids" are literal pictures, but i believe that they might be just memories

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it's basically like, "oh shit what did I do last night" kind of thing. But with a girl telling him.
    Also it's:
    I get up and I only wanna go to sleep
    I wake up to cheap tricks living days on me
    She says my confusion shows as the holes in me
    I say I'm too thirsty to think, need a drink
    Cause I lost my soul putting needle to ink [x2]
    (I reckon that's a reference to the Nike tattoo on his wrist he got while drunk. Lol.)
    And she knows how she kills me with her polaroids! [x4]

    I know that you wish I never had been born
    I guess that you'd give me more to cry for
    She says kids are cruel to be but cruel to fear
    I said apart from the shit that I'm in
    I am glad I can get disconnected,
    I can get so dead!

    General CommentThis song is not like IAMX at all. It's more rock than electronic and very humourous.
