Leave me here, biting my nails, breaking my stride, I put my faith into your desolate life
Happen so fast that I won't be afraid, I won't be afraid
Three years blessed, I gave it my best, it's time to put it all to rest
Your present is my past

Through my eyes I've seen nothing but time, forty four thousand lies
Straight from your putrid mind
High tides drag you through decades of nights, at anguish 'cause you'll never know
Why, loved ones who turn out your lights, seem like they care

I am an island and you're the tides that pull at my feet, but now she's sinking in this void

Aging, forcing my nerves
Cut your chords, count your chores, stop using yourself for fruitless scars, just cut your chords

Your back will keep breaking from this glass house that you have created
Hear me out, your heart is to heavy, to heavy for trust
So build me a promise and take my advice a word from the wise
A fault confessed, i shave redressed, she feels such unrest, so pray, so fucking pray
For tonight is your last

    General CommentI think it's about a guy breaking up with someone but they won't say goodbye yet because they're too dependent on him but he is ready to, as he says, "cut the chord". He wants to leave because of their lies but she won't let go.

    My InterpretationI love this song, one of my favorites on the album. A perfect interlude-type sound.

    I think it's just about moving on from the things that bring you down in life.
