"Reel" as written by and James/barbot Robbins....
There is no use in trying to explain
Is it your fault she made those cuts again?
To let out blood she thought it made her bad
Or maybe just to cut you out instead
Keep your head

Wounds you hide
Burn them clean
Show no way inside

The sound is down now you should hear yourself
Shouting from the bottom of a well
Attempts repeated infinitely feel useless now


Reel on a repeating loop
Reel on a repeating loop
Listen, listen, listen, listen

[Chorus: x2]

    Song MeaningFrom what I can tell, a (relatively) easy song about someone abusing themselves. They cut themselves and the other person (the “you” in this song) is trying to talk them out of it, but can’t get through to them. This is really more of a song about the psychology of a cutter or someone similarly self-destructive. It points out how rarely people take anyone else’s advice. The “reel” refers to how many times you repeat what you say, yet they never listen.
