I know the meaning is right
And I have confessions to know
I am the suffering type
I'm burying more than I show
I'm more alive than I know

Don't wash, don't shower, don't bathe
Don't eat, don't grow, don't age
Don't cry, don't challenge, don't change

Don't fall or drag yourself down

Yeah I'm the needles and veins
Dragged down so far don't fear don't rob yourself again
Yeah I'm on the crest of a song
I'm riding it while I'm wrong
Yeah I know where I'm from

Don't wash, don't shower, don't bathe
Don't eat, don't grow, don't age
Don't cry, don't challenge, don't change

    General CommentFor me, this is a song of struggles with depression.

    "I know the meaning is right
    And I have confessions to know"

    You know yourself and the things you don't like to admit:

    "I am the suffering type
    I'm burying more than I show"

    But you also know:

    "I'm more alive than I know"

    And then we hear the voice of depression, don't bother about anything, none of it matters:

    "Don't wash, don't shower, don't bathe
    Don't eat, don't grow, don't age
    Don't cry, don't challenge, don't change"

    And then you beat yourself up for feeling that way:

    "Don't fall or drag yourself down"

    You feel the call of drugs, though you know it's a bad idea and tell yourself not to give in:

    "Yeah I'm the needles and veins
    Dragged down so far don't fear don't rob yourself again"

    So you turn to your art, writing, songwriting, your creative outlet:

    "Yeah I'm on the crest of a song
    I'm riding it while I'm wrong"

    And maybe it's not so bad, perhaps this is how you're meant to be, some crazy poet, or just a rock and roll Joe, with tales of woe:

    "Yeah I know where I'm from"

    And then the voice of the chorus creeps back in. A tale of neither defeat nor victory, just a day in the life with the struggle.
