How did I get here?
And why the hell did it take this long?
I've buried a best friend
inside my trash can you left outdoors....

And you dropped me in the mailbox, my face paint still left on.
And you accused I never loved you
I could say nothing to change your mind.

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie. My smile has become empty/ (lazy)
Heard you've been looking for me.
Come on kid you know where I would go....
See lately, lately, lastly
I would love for you to ask me, where the line between
my pen and mind's at war. I tell MOST the truth you know.

My voice is a hatchet. It's forgotten how to whisper soft.
My mind is a bucket, and it captures the rain
sinking through the ceiling, landing on the rooftops.

You told me you were filled up with love... I said, "You've lost it."
You've said a mess of errors, you know not what it costs yet.
but I know, i know i know

They say I've lost it all. I watched them burn all the pictures of good pain on the beaches.
and oh, if this is rock bottom....! Then I say, "God damn! The view from here is breath taking...."

    General Commenti love this song...

    i think its about some sort of relationship that's ended, obviously.

    Charlie dropped Dia in the mailbox meaning he sent her away. He ended the relationship.

    Dia, her smile that's become empty and lazy, still has her face paint on. I think that means that she's been faking her happiness, and continues to fake it even after Charlie has ended their relationship.

    the line between her pen and mind is at war, meaning she is having difficulty transfering her thoughts on to paper, which could also mean that she's having difficulty with writing lyrics.

    she finds that she can not speak with him without raising her voice (my voice is a hatchet...)
    she's over thinking everything (my mind is a bucket)

    Charlie tried telling her that he loved her and she was too scared to accept it, and pushed him away. thus ending the relationship.

    and now she's hit rock bottom & is stunned at what she sees... she has really lost it all
