covered up by the dim, and cloudy sky
the moon is nowhere to be found tonight
and the sun…
well, it’s hiding on the other side of the world somewhere
making someone’s day so much brighter
well, for you, you are wherever the sunlight is
now, i’ve been drinking all night
trying to get rid of this pain in my side
i can hear my organs screaming out
we will kill ourselves to save ourselves
and i’ll watch them violently drift away
now i’m melting to the floor, and i’m staring straight ahead
swimming in empty bottles
i’m just trying to catch my breath
believe this, believe what i say
and i just can’t help it, i’m so tangled up in you.

    General Commenti interpert this as:
    he's really depressed, drinking by himself at night. missing the sun, and someone else. who to him the sun is always with, to me meaning she is always happy. and he doesn't understand this.
    maybe he doesnt understand it so much that he "just can't help it, i'm so tangeld up in you." aka he is just attracted to her because of her solid, constant happiness.
    so he drinks a lot, and thinks about her a lot too.

    that's just what i take this as.

    General Commenti interpret this song as he's depressed because his lovelife isn't that great, so he's drinking her away. and yet, he can't himself because he's so tangled up in this girl. and i agree with iheartmusiclove anddd Fwaffy. It is an amazing song with tons of depth.

    General CommentI aswell think its about drinking away the pain.he knows he has no control over the situation,but his drinking he CAN control...and maybe that's a peace of mind to him (ya know the only thing he has control over at this point in his life)

    and when he says, "well, it’s hiding on the other side of the world somewhere
    making someone’s day so much brighter well, for you, you are wherever the sunlight is" I think he's saying the light/sun is no longer in his life because the girl is gone.and maybe she's somewhere out in the world makind some other guy just as happy as she made the singer.and his life is dark because she's no longer around


    just my perspective(:

    General CommentCovered up by the dim, and cloudy sky,
    The moon is nowhere to be found tonight
    And the sun,

    Now, I've been drinking all night,
    Trying to get rid of this pain in my side
    I can hear my organs screaming out

    (they're screaming out)
    We will kill ourselves to save ourselves
    (they're screaming out)
    And I'll watch them violently drift away

    well, it's hiding on the other side of the world somewhere,
    Making someone's day so much brighter
    And well, for you, you're wherever the sunlight is
    And well, for you, you're wherever the sunlight is

    Now, I've been drinking all night
    Trying to get rid of this pain in my side
    I can hear my organs screaming out

    (they're screaming out)
    We will kill ourselves to save ourselves
    (they're screaming out)
    and I'll watch them violently drift away

    Now I'm melting to the floor, and I'm staring straight ahead
    Swimming in empty bottles
    I'm just trying to catch my breath

    Now, I've been drinking all night
    Trying to get rid of this pain in my side
    I can hear my organs screaming out

    Believe this, believe what I say.
    And I just can't help it,
    And i just can't help it,
    I'm so tangled up in you.

    General CommentIts about how, its night time and he cant find any "light: to light up his dark day..

    "moon is nowhere to be found tonight
    and the sun�
    well, it�s hiding on the other side of the world somewhere
    making someone�s day so much brighter"

    so hes drinking trying to get rid of the pain in his side , maybe a metaphor for him majorly f*cking up when drunk and (cheated on his gf adn she broke up with him) so now he's drinking even more to make himself feel better and for get her which he knows is stupid but is doing anyway because he hurts but he cant forget her be cause

    "I'm so tangled up in you."

    what you think??

    General CommentWell i interpret this song as getting drunk by yourself thinking of someone, when he says that she's wherever sunlight is he means that she means everything but the girl is with someone else "making his day much brighter" so that's why he's depressed and drinking, but can't let go, he's so tangled, and he's just drunk, basically an ode to getting drunk on someones name... like i did a lot of times.
