I pull myself across the floor, I just can't stand out
all scattered papers across the room, I couldn't see that
small scars and marks around my skin, I just can't stand out
a little something to forget, what have you done here

It never felt like it would stick, and that's the time, see
you put your head around my door, i just can't talk now
i find it easier to stare, all open- mouthed
you know i try, i try, i try, I couldn't stop this

all ties are coming to an end
all ties are coming to an end
all lines are coming to an end
all ties are coming to an end

oh oh oh oooohh, i need it
oh oh oh oooohh, i want it
oh oh oh oooohh, i need it
oh oh oh oooohh, i'd do it (i want it)

oh oh oh oooohh, i need it
oh oh oh oooohh, i'd do it (i want it)

i hide my things inside the drawer, you shouldn't be there
oh god, i itch, i scratch, i burn, you shouldn't see this
i pull myself across the floor, i just can't stand now
oh god, i try, i try, i try, i just can't stop it

and you want me, just to say
i'm hopeless, i'm not stupid
and you want me, just to say
i'm hopeless, i'm not stupid
and you want me, just to say
i'm hopeless, i don't want this
i don't want this
i don't want this
i don't want this
i don't want this
i don't want this...

    Lyric Correctionit should be "I just can't stand now" instead of "I just can't stand out."

    General CommentAnyway as to the meaning of the song, it seems pretty clear to me that it's about a recovering addict who relapses. The lyrics seems to hint that the drug is heroin ("It never felt like it would STICK, and that's the pun, see). The addict is ashamed of their relapse ("You shouldn't see this," "I don't want this") but they can't figure out how to fix themselves. It should be noted that the song is actually called "14 Days (Acoustic Version)" and was originally released on Arkitekt's 2009 album "Tonelist" under the title "Pacing A/V." Amazing song that makes me cry every time; can't believe so few people have heard of it.
