I feel no sympathy
-It's easy
Leave it alone, let it be
All activity must be stop
-All the doors must be locked
Don't make sound or we all be fucked
I hear it lurking outside
It's a monster what?
This should be no surprise
-It's the other half of your life
Scary as hell
Thank god I got my wife
She's a soldier at your side
That none can divide
But in the end you'll have to face a very different kind

Solitude no "we"
This cut don't bleed
So leave it alone, let it be
Break it upon the rocks of your needs
A sinking island, it doesn't want to find them
No friend, no foe, no loose ends to mend
In isolation
-There's no tempation
To break from familiarity of feeling like a rarity
A lock with no key
This falling twig is finally been set free

So what's the disparity
What's the problem?
-You don't need no one
You need nothing from
Laughing and smiles
No one for miles
I am a rock
Fuck the flock
They're just outlines in chalk (yeah)
Manikins that talk (yeah)
Fists that knock (yeah)
Bullshit that walks
I float above it alone in my grace
The ants disappear without no fuckin' trace

What the fuck is this chain in my chest
Dug into my gut it's tugged by the rest
-I can't be dependant, I can't be a mess
I must remain solid in the face of this duress
Its tug of war
Killing my very core
A conflict of property, no more, no more
I'll break the chain
I'll cut myself off
No one can touch me in my isolation

-You don't speak of the love, you don't speak of rewards
You don't speak of rewards, you don't speak of the cost
I am an altogether different being
I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing
In the past I've seen my enemies go a fleeing
Now I avoid the whole thing
No friend to whom I'm clinging
-Some say it's not a way to be living
That you should spend your life giving and giving
So I flipped the switch
Aint nobody's bitch
My wounds I self stitch
I ignore the itch
To socialize
To realize
To see through other peoples eyes
I'm deaf to my own cries
But I'm deaf to the lies
You can't deny
-With no friends you don't cry
I'll be this way till I die or learn to scry
I am an altogether different being
I got black wings of fire and eyes of true seeing

I can't fucking breath
I'm suffocating
It's isolation
What the fuck am I hiding from?

I'm suffocating
It's isolation
What the fuck am I hiding from?

    My InterpretationTo me this songs starts off with the person being in denial. Thinking that being alone makes them almost superior or unique. But then near the end of the song they come the realization that isolation is really ruining their life. This is something that really hits home for me, as this is something I have gone through. It wasn't until I met someone special that I realized what an empty shell of a human being I was, I wasn't living at all. The last few lines ring very true:

    "I can't fucking breath
    I'm suffocating
    It's isolation
    What the fuck am I hiding from?"

    I felt this way so many times, but I always thought I was just meant to be alone and the world telling me how I should live my life made me feel like that. But I was lying to myself. I really did feel that way and couldn't face it.
