That sinking feeling when you’re not yourself:
searching for a reason for some kind of help,
but all that comes is empty promises and feeling anxious and useless.
Then, when I’m my worst, comes someone who I don’t deserve.
I’ll call her destroyer, and I’ll destroy her.
If you never had the chance, sing hallelujah.

    General CommentSomeone having emotional problems and wanting someone to come and save him. He doesn't like himself and he is tired of the feeling. When s/he's at his worst a friendly face emerges to help him through the pain. It creates an uncomfortable feeling because it's something s/he's not used to. And s/he worried he'll destroy her (probably not intentionally though). He fears his effect on her. Very sad song.
