Covered 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'll kill ourselves to save ourselves.
(They're screaming out)
And 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'll kill ourselves to save ourselves.
(They're screaming out)
And watch them violently drift away.

Now I'm melting to the floor,
Staring straight ahead.
Swimming in empty bottles,
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 CommentWell, im pretty sure it is about the whole being rejected by someone you love and drinking the problems away. But when i think of the organs "screaming out" i take it two ways. The slightly funny image of his liver screaming in pain from all of the alcohol, and the sad image of his heart screaming out for the girl he loves. Ugh, depressing.

    General Commenti think it is about someone being in love with another person but that person is not in love with him or even noticing him... and he is drinking his pain away to forget about it... these lyrics suggest this theory(Making someone's day so much brighter.)

    General Commentfirst of all i love this song! second of all, this is what i got out of it:

    the singer is suffering through a relationship and going through a dark time. the girl or the moon- the light in the dark is covered up by his problems or "the dim and cloudy sky" and he doesnt even finish the sentence w/ the sun cuz its not even an option, there is no sun for him because she was the sun to him. the light:D

    "we'll kill ourselves to save ourselves" by drinking he knows hes killing himself but its the only way to save him from the pain.
    and the rest is his downward spiral as he's just trying to get by and how he "just can't help it"
