There is a thing that I know that does it better than me
And I haven't wanted to be all the things I could be
And I'd bash it all away, if I could
If I believe that it would make me good
Good

To us, it is the way I am built
To us, it is the way I deal with things
To us, I am an old old man
And if I can't take your sex, I'll take your hand

Stick close to me and I will keep you safe
Nothing is important to me anymore except for you
Don't lie to me, I think I've earned the truth
I am good
I am good

If I could hold you down and drown you in my arms, I would
If I could freeze you now to keep you as you are, I would

I am good
I am good
I am good

YEAH!

I won't hear, so don't

So don't say it (Don't say it)
So don't say it (Don't say it)
So don't say it (Don't say it)
So don't say it

Stick close to me and I won't let you go
All of this is worth it if it meant a thing to you
So suffer me, if that is all that you can do
I am good
I am good

If I could hold you down and drown you in my arms, I would
If I could freeze you now to keep you as you are, I would

    My Interpretation"There is a thing that I know that does it better than me
    And I haven't wanted to be all the things I could be "

    Seems to me like admitting to an insecurity, being in a relationship and feeling inadequate but trying to bury that with an almost obsession with the relationship itself:

    "If I could hold you down and drown you in my arms, I would
    If I could freeze you now to keep you as you are, I would"

    fearing that at any time the loved one will move on from you, because of your inadequacies and being almost desperate to have everything be perfect and remain just the way it is; you holding on tightly and you trying to immerse both of you in order to achieve this.

    "All of this is worth it if it meant a thing to you
    So suffer me, if that is all that you can do "

    Hoping that even if your insecurities do come to fruition; where the loved one does move on or the obsessive behaviour does finally come to a head; at the very least the relationship amounted to something because of your efforts, even having a bitter sufferance is better than nothing.
