Feel me in the corner
Beside your mouth
Feel me in the inside of the
Faintest trace of sound

It's the fire underwater
Breathing while you drown
Feel me in the saturation
When the sun burns out

I am the one inside you
And I am the one
(Inside your veins)
I am the one inside you
Over and over I'm here again

Far beyond the bruising
Something underneath
Feel me in the aftermath when
You learn the world has teeth

I am the one inside you
And I am the one
(Inside your veins)
I am the one inside you
Over and over I'm here again

There is so much more to this than
Phantom limbs for amputees
Here, dissolving through the trauma
This is where You'll feel the breath of me

    Song MeaningRIGHTEO KIDS. So I have no idea what this song is about for certain, but I sure as hell have an idea for you. The main theme is madness. This is inspired by the lyrics, which I will analyze shortly, but also by the melody and the singing style. It's so soothing and calm and slow. But it's soothing in a very eerie way. Makes you think of that tiny little voice in your head that eventually takes over your mind. The voice of insanity, yo. Anyway, lyrical analysis time:

    "Feel me in the corner
    Beside your mouth
    Feel me in the inside of the
    Faintest trace of sound"

    *~~Assuming that the "me" refers to madness throughout this song, it starts to make a bit more sense. You can never see it, but you can feel it. The "besides your mouth" bit makes me think of someone's mouth twitching. This, I believe, is a common side-effect of certain anti-psychotic drugs. So when you see that twitch it sorta makes you think that this person is mad. Also, finding madness in tiny noises is pretty common. Like the constant dripping of a tap; it's so quiet but it just eats at your sanity. Thus, you "feel" madness.

    "It's the fire underwater
    Breathing while you drown
    Feel me in the saturation
    When the sun burns out"

    *~~Madness is an absurdity. It's fire underwater. It just exists. And, it also gets more powerful when someone is struggling. While you drown/struggle/suffer trauma, it breathes.
    The sun burning out suggests darkness, cold, and the death of everything. So when really bad shit happens that destroys your world, you go crazy.

    "I am the one inside you
    And I am the one
    (Inside your veins)
    I am the one inside you
    Over and over I'm here again"

    *~~Madness is inside you, inside your veins, like a disease. It's always around, so "over and over". Pretty self-explanatory.

    "Far beyond the bruising
    Something underneath
    Feel me in the aftermath when
    You learn the world has teeth"

    *~~Bruising is a physical injury. A physical injury people can see, people can treat. But madness lies underneath the physical damage. The final line here makes me think of a loss of innocence. Perhaps someone who was raped or mugged. They were hurt physically but most of the damage was psychological. Thus they learned the world is not all sunshine and butterflies because of some scarring event, and in the aftermath they could sense the madness creeping in.

    "There is so much more to this than
    Phantom limbs for amputees
    Here, dissolving through the trauma
    This is where You'll feel the breath of me"

    *~~The first couple of lines make me think of war, and also Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). A soldier loses his arm? NBD! Toss on a fake one. He's healed right? Wrong. Hence there being "more to this" than just fixing physical damage.
    When trauma "dissolves", or when the physical injuries heal, there is still mental damage, and often soldiers with such violent injuries end up with PTSD.

    General CommentThe song describes my split personality perfectly. Well she (my second personality) is a kind of madness, she lies just under the surface, and she is crazy. But she also helps me endure all the bad stuff in the world (when you learn the world has teeth). She helps me to be a little cynical about bad people, so I can ignore them for a while. I call her a demon or dark angel, because that is really what it feels like.
    That is what the song is to me, and I really love it.

    My InterpretationBefore I get into my own interpretation, I wanna add that the previous comment about the song being about insanity is a very interesting take on the issue. I think that Blue Stahli's songs are made so they can be interpreted in different ways. So this is my interpretation, without trying to say the insanity one is wrong.

    I think this is about an abusive relationship with a person who is completely aware of what they are doing to their partner. This is what the soft tone makes me think of: manipulation.
    "Feel me in the corner
    Beside your mouth"
    Abuse laced with seduction. When he says "feel me", it makes me rather think of "I am inside your mind, obey me, but you won't know it is happening to you." And "beside your mouth"... as I've said, seduction.

    "Feel me in the inside of the
    Faintest trace of sound"
    Now, it seems like he's everywhere, even in the faintest trace of sound, every hour of the day, she thinks of him. It makes me think of dependency.

    "It's the fire underwater
    Breathing while you drown"
    Like he's feeding off of her pain. While she drowns, he breathes.

    "Feel me in the saturation
    When the sun burns out"
    When her last hope, her sun will have burned out, she'll need him the most. It is a commonly used tactic for abusers to slowly make sure their partner cuts off all relationships with friends and family, so he/she is all the abuser's property. After that happens, she'll only have him.

    "I am the one inside you
    And I am the one
    (Inside your veins)
    I am the one inside you
    Over and over I'm here again"
    This one is pretty easy to guess: him being in her mind always, manipulating, making her do what he wants. "Over and over" as in her trying to break up with him, trying to escape the abuse, but always going back to him. This is a common feature of abusive relationships: victims can't let go.

    "Far beyond the bruising
    Something underneath
    Feel me in the aftermath when
    You learn the world has teeth"
    The bruising is obviously self-harm, which might not be the strangest reaction to his constant abuse. Also, the last line, with the girl learning that the world has teeth, makes me think of a young girl, innocent and scared, who is relying on her boyfriend for everything. These kinds of people are the easiest to control. She doesn't know how cruel the world is, and she feels protected with him, so she will always come back, no matter what he does.

    "There is so much more to this than
    Phantom limbs for amputees
    Here, dissolving through the trauma
    This is where You'll feel the breath of me"
    I am not so sure about this one. "Phantom limbs for amputees" makes me think of someone who thinks their problem will be solved, prays to get the impossible, but it is only a phantom, only an illusion. Maybe it is the girl hoping the relationship will change for the better and how hopeless that is. Also, the more she "dissolves through the trauma", the more she'll "feel the breath of him", the more she'll seek him.
