give it up because this questions loaded
it will wait for you in this maze of cars swal
low you whole it consumes you, like a whale
it's not letting go
forever forever forever

keep me I'm not useless I am loud
take me with you I will be good I will be heard
don't sit waiting for your family to come home
they're not coming back

you are not what you once set out to be
you will find yourself in this maze of bars and
render you helpless to your own offense
it's not letting go
forever forever forever

keep me I'm not useless I am loud
take me with you I will be good I will be heard
don't sit waiting for your family to come home
they're not coming back


keep me I am useless I'm not loud
take me with you I will be good I will be heard
don't sit waiting for your family to come home
you're not coming back

    General Commentthe writer apparently wants to be a part of someones life...."take me with you I will be good I will be heard"
    they stress the fact that they are loud and will be heard, as though intimating they have something important to say.
    They are trying to get through to somebody...almost warning them..."like a whale it's not letting go" and "you will find yourself in this maze of bars" etc.
    Life is not turning out exactly as expected and the writer is throwing out a life line trying to draw the person they are talking to in...trying to merge their lives.

    General Commentok...taking a second look here:

    "Give it up b/c this questions loaded".....It seems there is too much to comprehend. A problem or dilemma w/ no clear answers....described as a maze or a whale that won't let go...forever.

    The repeated line, "Don't sit, waiting for your family to come home, they're not coming back" makes me want to cry.
    It seems a very sad lament.

    The repeated "Keep me, I'm not useless, I am loud" etc. seems to be a cry of despair....the singer feels he/she is being/ has been cast off by someone or something...

    This song seems very sad. The singer seems to feel lost and alone or cast off. All the words make me want to cry but it depends on how it is sung also.

    General CommentI feel this song screams that the singer's persona was a child that lost his family in a terrible car accident, like a 10 car pile up or something (thus the maze of cars).

    He questions "why?", "why? has this happened to me!" A loaded question for sure because it can never be answered no matter what.

    The boy finally gets put in a foster home possibly with abusive people and is abused throughout his life trying to prove to them he's worthy, he's good, finally succumbing to his own sadness and loss of true family and winds up hitting the bars and never recovering with what the last line says in the second verse: "it's" not letting go, the situation and circumstances, the life of this guys isn't letting go, and he's drowning in it.

    This song is about traffic safety and not talking on your cellphone when you drive.
