"My Own Worst Enemy" as written by Kelly Jones, Adam Yousefi Zindani and Richard Jones....
I'd just turned twenty six and she was twenty three
She wore a crucifix but never preached at me
We'd stay up all the night until the day was dead
I'd get the fear of God inside my broken head

Wanna fly away
And change my ways

I'll beat myself to death while she sits next to me
I wanna free myself from all this misery
I wanna taste the love but life's against up me
But I am my own worst enemy

I try to get some sleep her arms are over me
I'm staring at the walls they're closing in on me
This sun bleeds through the blinds that washes over me
Today's the day I tell myself to set me free

Wanna fly away
And change my ways

I'll beat myself to death while she sits next to me
I wanna free myself from all this misery
I wanna taste the love but life's against up me
But I am my own worst enemy

(Feel, wanna feel it, wanna feel it, wanna feel it)

I wanna fly away
And change my ways

I'll beat myself to death while she sits next to me
I wanna free myself from all this misery
I wanna taste the love but life's against up me
But I am my own worst enemy

Worst enemy
Worst enemy
Worst enemy!

    My InterpretationDefinitely disagree with above,
    I would very much think he's tempted by the girls purity and wants to feel what she feels.
    "There's somebody through the blinds that watches over me" = God.
    "She wore a crucifix but never preached at me". Flying away, etc, all references to God.

    General CommentI think it's about a guy who's in a relationship, but he feels the spark has gone from it and he wants to end it, but he can't bring himself to do it.
