"Blessed With a Curse" as written by and Matthew Kean Jona Weinhofen....
Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse
I know I said my heart beats for you I was lying girl, it beats for two
Because I got your love and I got these vices
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you

Ever since this began, I was blessed with a curse
And for better or for worse I was born into a hearse
I know I said my heart beats for you I was lying girl
I've been lying to you

Everything I touch turns to stone
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own
Everything I touch turns to stone
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, because
Everything I touch turns to stone
So wrap your arms around me, and leave me, I can't hold on

Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, every word I've said
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you
Take back every word I've said, ever said to you

    General CommentI think it's about not feeling worthy of someones love. Im guessing probably Amanda.
    He loves her but he also has "vices", probably drugs and alcohol, and he feels like they are the two greatest loves in his life. I guess someone struggling with addiction would feel pretty conflicted over the people they love and their vices.
    I think the whole "Everything I touch turns to stone" part just emphasises that he feels like he's not worthy of love, especially if he has been lying or misleading to that person about his vices.

    Song Meaning
    "Everything I touch turns to stone"

    The song from my view, is about a past relationship with a girl, this line meaning everyone he ever loved, changed on him, they were once full of life and then they develop no feelings for him in return as if turning dull,not caring..lifeless as in turning to stone.

    "So wrap your arms around me, and leave me on my own"

    Meaning, yeah tell me you love me, embrace me with your words, make me develop these feelings for you, so that you can eventually leave me.

    "Take back every word I've said, ever said to you

    He regrets what happened, I think the whole song in general means he has a curse and never is going to find love.

    General CommentI've always thought this song was about Oli being in love with a girl but he's also addicted to drugs.
    I feel like the whole album is about drug addiction, so many things stand out to me that make it obvious.

    My InterpretationSince the first time I listened to this song, I thought about eating disorders. Because it's something that happened to me every time I started a relationship, like if the disorders fucks everything up.
    Like if you should make it stop for the sake of the relationship because it's ruining it, but you also feel like it's part of you and don't want to get rid of it.

    It seems like I'm the only one who thinks like this...

    General CommentBMTH is my favorite band of all time. Each album has it's own original sound, their newest album being my favorite.

    What I get out of this song is that he made a big mistake that he greatly regrets, but he can't get rid of it and ever since that, he can't do anything right. ---> "everything I touch turns to stone."

    That's just what I get out of it. Every meaning people come up with has flaws to the lyrics. I already know mine. The only way to really know is to ask BMTH.

    General CommentHeard this song today for the first time. It's fascinating. I am a lyrics hound, so lyrics matter to me. And these are definitely interesting (and I really like the song in its entirety). He believes he loves someone and he believes he loves his vices. He's a fatalist. He defeats himself before he begins, blaming his inability to either have or sustain a relationship on his vices. He believes they are a part of who he is (innate). He also appears to relish in the idea that he is "cursed," that he chooses to give in to temptation (for women; drugs; booze; cheating; whatever). He wants her to dump him now because he either fears or knows that his vices will eventually be the death of the relationship. He simply cannot hold on to the life of lies he's living so it's best to end things rather than step up to the plate and acknowledge the way of life he's chosen (and attempt to stop acting the fool:).

    General CommentDoes anyone notice faint talking at the start of the song? It's way to static to make out, even on high volume. Anyone know why it's there, or better, what is being said?
    From what I could make out, vaguely, I heard something about the compassions of man and something about Jesus sacrificing himself...but I think that's wrong.
