Under this crushing wait
I'm sinking
It never goes away
The thinking
Echoes in empty rooms
Decaying
Alone to face the rest of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[Alone to face the rest of me]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[Alone to face the rest of me]

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?

Inhaling all these memories
Like a breath of fire sent from hell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll - miss - you

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[Alone to face the rest of me]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

What the hell is wrong with me?
Why am I torturing myself?

Fixated on these memories
Like a prisoner inside a cell

Lead in my gut, not in my spine
I feel distracted all the time
Well lucky me I'm finally all alone
I'll - miss - you

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[Alone to face the rest of me]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

With nothing useful to say and no one to listen to it
Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it
Consider questionable things to try to get me through it
I've tried to push it away but I always give into it
Long for the taste of all the rain that finally helps subdue it
And washes this all away

Under this crushing wait
I'm sinking
It never goes away
The thinking
Echoes in empty rooms
Are saying
Time to erase the rest
...of me

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[Alone to face the rest of me]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[I'll miss you]

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[I'll miss you]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[I'll miss you]

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
[Alone to face the rest of me]
So long sentiment
It doesn't
[I'll miss you]
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
[I'll miss you]

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now
So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

It doesn't matter now
It doesn't matter now

So long sentiment
It doesn't matter now

    General CommentIt seems to be about him doing drugs to deal with a lost love.

    I could be wrong but this seems to clarify it:

    "With nothing useful to say and no one to listen to it
    Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it
    Consider questionable things to try to get me through it
    I've tried to push it away but I always give into it
    Long for the taste of all the rain that finally helps subdue it
    And washes this all away"

    The "rain" is the drug(s?) that will wash away his pain.

    The crushing weight he is sinking under could be either depression or drug use.

    General CommentTo me, it seems as if he is missing someone or something that used to be a big part of his life and he's trying to cope with the loss. He realizes that he's wasted time missing that someone or something asking himself

    "What the hell is wrong with me? Why am I torturing myself?"

    And after all of the pain and loss he's felt, he decides that he is better off without that someone or something and removes any thoughts that would connect him to that someone or something, which he refers to as sentiment.

    "So long sentiment It doesn't matter now."

    And the repetition of this line is him convincing himself that the words are true.

    This song holds a personal meaning to me. I was close friends with a girl at my church, but she has mental problems and started lashing out violently at her parents. So they sent her off to a state hospital for treatment. It took me forever to finally get over her absence and move on with my life. But I was constantly having to remind myself that "it doesn't matter now".

    General CommentDo people here just read the lyrics and try to guess at what it means? If you knew the artist and album, the meanings are pretty clear. The entire album is a story, and this is but one chapter. To try to take it out of place and ascribe some individual meaning to it outside the context of the whole album is the same as taking one stanza of a poem, or small slice of a painting, and trying to determine what the artist intended without looking at the rest of the work. Just read the lyrics for the whole album as a story and it'll all make sense.
