Someone has sewn me shut
And tied me to a bed
They locked me up, locked me up
Oh, God!

This is where they all
Throw me to the wolves
Dragged behind and trampled on
I can't keep clawing at the jaws of hell
The silence is killing me

Nothing to calm the nerve
Nothing to calm the nerve
Write down my thoughts
And read me my rights
Repeat, repeat, repent and repeat

The cycle never really ends
Till they admit that it's real
The cycle never really ends
Till they admit, they admit that it's real

Everything, everything is leaving me wondering
I hate that I'm questioning everything, everything

This is how it seems to me
I've drowned myself in self-regret
This is how I wanna be
This can't be how I wanna be

This is spinning perfect little circles
And that's all that they know
They just spin in perfect little circles
And that's all that they know, all that they know

[Repeat x3]
Nothing's right, just left alone
Sinking in will be just fine
None of them will ever know
None of them will ever know

    General Comment:everythin said makes sense but it seems to be quite obvious its about drug addiction and struggling to break dependency and relapse....right away he talks about being sown up and tied to a bed being locked up and thrown to the wolves...a frequent technique used to break someone of a chemical depency...lock ya in a room keep ya in bed an ya go through hell depending on how serious the addiction may be...but ya really have no choice but to come down en get through it all...then i believe he's referring going through relapse an being in denial of addiction and dependency...and how you can't really break it until you come to terms with it and realize you have a problem and that it needs to be fixed and that you need help...but thats jus my take nevertheless great song

    General Comment:sick stuff! to me this song could be about someone who is being driven down and is questioning their beliefs & purpose... not too sure though, looking forward to the album release.

    General Comment:This song is amazing!

    I think it is clearly talking about something on the lines of someone grasping onto their faith in God, but this messed up corrupt world attacking it in every way possible, and them loosing slight grip in a sense. but at the end realizing the people attacking are wrong and hold no truth themselves. It describes their hopelessness as: "They just spin in perfect little circles
    And that’s all they know"

    perfect description of Atheists honestly!...

    General Comment:i think i take a more cynical approach to the song.
    i feel that it's about being tired of people with a "holier than thou" complex. being judged by the ones who are supposed to show love and questioning things because this isn't how it's supposed to be.

    General Comment:holy crap. this song is amazinggg! gah. underoath kicks ass. i think it IS about someone questioning god & wanting to get over it and just know and stay true to what he/she believes in, and thats Jesus. but can't, because people around him attack, and joudge, and criticize. you know. amazing. just a few days before the release!

    General Comment:Wow, this song is now 10x better than it was before now that i know what it means. It relates so much to me! I have a lot of non-christian friends who seem to drag me into darker things, and its really been something I've been struggling with lately.

    Excellent song.

    General Comment:i think i agree with smoke signals. its someone struggling to find answers and fighting the darkness within "i can't keep clawing at the jaws of hell'. and yet when they look for answers the people who should be helping are just spinning in "perfect little circles" and if he was to just slip away, these oblivious people wouldn't even know...

    General Comment:this song to me means to me that people or the world has shut him up and ridiculed him for being a christian and God isn't there to help him probably because he is testing his faith but he is struggling with what we all do comitting sins then repenting so on and so on. then you see him fighting himself in disbelief.
