I feel ashamed, again and again
Nothing to give, and no one to blame
During the day, I guess I'm okay

At night, I sleep by your side
Waiting for you, to give me a sign
I'm counting the days
And there's nothing to say

Ahhhhhhh I hope I can feel and see the change
stop the bleed inside and feel again
Cut the chain of lies
You've been feeding my veins
I've got nothing to say to you

I hope I can chill and stay the same
stop the bleed inside and feel again
Cut the chain of lies
I've been beating myself (and beating and beating myself)
Without nothing to say to you


ùì ùååàøîä æä:
take one look at yourself..realize
life is been treating you nice ,better be wise
and enjoy your moment.

take one look at yourself..through your eyes
how you treated your life ,wasn't to wise
cause it's gettin' closer

    My InterpretationI think the song is about someone in a relationship with someone who hurts them, either physically or emotionally, and they're trying to gather up enough confidence to end it. The energy of the music itself seems to say that they're trying to make themselves angry, possibly to make the break easier.


    "I feel ashamed, again and again
    Nothing to give, and no one to blame
    During the day, I guess I'm okay"

    They're realizing something's wrong but still trying to justify staying.

    "At night, I sleep by your side
    Waiting for you, to give me a sign
    I'm counting the days
    And there's nothing to say"

    They've fully realized the problem, but are still not wanting to do anything, they're resigned to live in the less-than-ideal situation.

    "Ahhhhhhh I hope I can feel and see the change
    stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies
    You've been feeding my veins
    I've got nothing to say to you"

    The problem has gotten worse, but they're still hesitant to do anything, wondering if leaving will even make them feel better.

    "I hope I can chill and stay the same
    stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies
    I've been beating myself (and beating and beating myself)
    Without nothing to say to you"

    They've put together a plan and are going to act on it, and are hoping things will turn out alright. They're gathering up their courage by reminding themselves they're a victim, and are getting angry in preparation for the coming confrontation.

    That's just my take.

    Song MeaningThis song describes addictions in general.
    How the addiction becomes a part of them and the addicted has to struggle a lot if he/she wants to stop it.


    "I feel ashamed, again and again
    Nothing to give, and no-one to blame
    During the day, I guess I'm OK" X2
    He feels bad (I feel ashamed).
    He feels like he isn’t doing well enough, maybe failing to his family, bad grades at school, etc. (Nothing to give)
    And he acknowledges that he is the only one responsible for it (and no-one to blame)
    But who knows? Maybe it’s nothing. (During the day, I guess I'm OK)

    "I feel ashamed, again and again
    Nothing to give, and no-one to blame
    During the day, I guess I'm OK" X2


    "I feel ashamed, again and again
    Nothing to give, and no-one to blame
    During the day, I guess I'm OK"

    "At night
    I sit by your side
    Waiting for you, to give me a sign
    I'm counting the days
    And have nothing to say"
    When he thinks no one is watching him (At night)
    He approaches to his addiction addiction (I sit by your side)
    In hope that his addiction could make him feel better (Waiting for you, to give me a sign)
    However, he doubts about his addiction, and he tries to just leave it. (I'm counting the days and have nothing to say)

    "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies you've been feeding my veins
    I've got nothing to say to you
    I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies I've been beating and beating and beating myself...”
    He really wants to leave his addiction and have a normal life again (I hope I chill and stay the same)
    His addiction hurts him, so he wants to stop it. (Stop the bleed inside and feel again)
    (I’ve got nothing to say to you) This line summarizes a lot of his feelings towards the addiction.
    However he is struggling in his fight against his addiction: He really wants to continue, he feels like he can’t live without it. (Cut the chain of lies you've been feeding my veins)
    But he really wants to stop, his addiction is damaging him (Cut the chain of lies I've been beating and beating and beating myself)




    *His addiction got him again.

    "I feel ashamed, again and again, nothing to give, no one to blame, during the day
    I guess I'm OK
    At night, I sit by your side
    Waiting for you, to give me a sign
    I'm counting the days, and have nothing to say"
    But he feels bad again; he tries one more time to leave his addiction behind.

    But the temptation is so strong…
    "Cut the chain of lies, you've been feeding my veins" X7
    At one point, he is tempted again.
    He cannot lie to himself; he wants to “feed his veins” again...

    *He crumbles to his addiction again...

    "Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhh I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies you've been feeding my veins
    I've got nothing to say to you
    I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies I've been beating and beating and beating myself..."
    So he is regretting for falling to temptation once again.


    "I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies you've been feeding my veins
    I've got nothing to say to you
    So he really wants to stop and have a normal life again
    Stop all the pain that his fight causes him
    Yet he is struggling a lot
    He just wants to leave it behind without hesitating anymore
    “I hope I can chill and stay the same
    Stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies I've been beating myself without nothing to say to you,
    Nothing to say to you"
    He wants to leave his addiction
    Stop all the problems that this causes to him
    Even if sometimes he thinks about returning, it would only cause him more pain
    He wants to just leave it without ever thinking about it again.

    General CommentIt's about wanting to but not ending the relationship with someone.

    I feel ashamed, again and again.
    Nothing to give, and no one to blame.
    During the day, I guess I'm okay.

    >> He is clearly unhappy, but during the day (when his mind is busy most of the time), he doesn't get too concerned.

    At night, I sit by your side waiting for you to give me a sign.

    >> He doesn't have the courage to start a conversation, he needs a sign that she is thinking the same.

    I'm counting the days with nothing to say.

    >>> It's recurrent

    Aaaaahhhh!

    >>He is getting mad because of the situation

    I hope I can chill and stay the same, stop the bleed inside and feel again.

    >> He hopes that the bleed inside, the decaying of his feelings, can go away and he can start loving her again.

    Cut the chain of lies. You've been feeding my veins, I've got nothing to say to you.

    >> No, he must stop telling lies to himself. She is the one not letting him bleed out inside (she is taking care of the relationship) so he can't find a way to tell her.

    >> He can't make a decision: sometimes he thinks it's just easier to carry on, but then realizes he is unhappy with that.

    I hope I can chill and stay the same
    stop the bleed inside and feel again
    Cut the chain of lies

    I've been beating myself (and beating and beating myself)
    With nothing to say to you

    >> He thinks it's unfair to her, he feels bad about it, but he can't change it.

    General CommentI see IM as heading in the direction of pop music...they relocated to L.A. from Israel, they're adding more and more songs with lyrics to their albums...I guess I don't fault them for that, as that's where the money is, plus they can tour easier from the States. but I also see their trance songs as becoming a bit formulaic- the typical breakdown/buildup 2/3 of the way through the song, etc.

    Personally I'd rather not hear partially-developed songs with lyrics/rapping, when some of their instrumentals are absolute majesty.

    My OpinionI have to say, this is a long shot , but after reading both of your opinions, I can say that both are true.
    This is coming from an ex acid-head and I loved to listen to IM whilst tripping,
    As said by 'MoonWolfHowl' You can feel the energy of the sounds that infected use in all of their songs...a reference to an addiction makes alot of sense but
    without a doubt it is about a relationship WITH A PERSON
    I think that infected has 'stories' in a few songs, mainly (Legend of the black shwarma album) it is sometimes a message that only the 'tripper' can understand or feel...as i said, it's a long shot and we all know that acid screws with your head..
    Once I listened to Infected whilst on acid, It never sounded the same again, amazing group.
    P.S: I do not promote or encourage the use of drugs, I simply share personal experience.

    Song MeaningAs I am reading all of these comments, I must write a comment of my own regarding the meaning.

    From my point of view, it's about the (accidental) creation of an intelligent species.
    The first part (0:00 - 0:52) is about the coming up of discovery of the general idea of creating something.
    The following part with the lyrics (0:52 - I feel ashamed, ...) means the idea in theory - firstly the input (the voice is pretty basic with no intonations nor melody), secondly is the expected result (sounding more natural).
    The next part (1:18 - 2:24) is viewed to me as the process of creation.
    Then it is all put to test (2:24 - I feel ashamed, ...), where the problem starts - it didn't go according to plan. The message was the same, but the voice is completely different.
    ...
    Well, I could go on, but if you understood the beginning, you will surely get the rest by yourselves. Then the lyrics are continuosly being enriched, either by lyrics or by the melodies - that's for sure if you compare the 4:38 part with 6:30.

    I hope I did a good contribution to this discussion.
