I'm lucky if I ever see the light of day again
My skin is choking me, my feeble walls are closing in
This cell is filled with scholars easing me, they're teasing me
They told me so I didn't know the fall would be this easy
How long until it starts to do me in?
I can't give out what I'm not breathing in
I know they'll come with what I'm owed
Guilty as charged

My enemies belittle me, reminding me the penalty
For all my deeds, despite my pleas, is death

Don't let go 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
Don't let go, don't let go
Save your own 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
But don't let go, don't let go, savior

Your way to life has only showed me what a fool I am
It serves the purpose of confirming I remain condemned
And I will ever linger on the edge
Unless you hear me

How long until it starts to do me in?
I can't give out what I'm not breathing in
I know they'll come with what I'm owed
Guilty as charged

My enemies belittle me, reminding me the penalty
For all my deeds, despite my pleas, is death

Don't let go 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
Don't let go, don't let go
Save your own 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
But don't let go, don't let go, savior

Don't let go 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
Don't let go, don't let go
Save your own 'cause I don't wanna be this, I don't wanna be this
Death is mine I know
But don't let go, don't let go, save your own

    My InterpretationI think the song is basically about doing something that soon is extremely regretted, and they feel as if they guilt and the 'sin is choking' them. Closing in and making it harder for them to live with themselves. And they are waiting for the penalty to end and are pleading 'Don't let go Savior', basically saying they don't want God to leave them and that they need him to save them from death. So all in all, my interpretation of the song is a cry for help and a cry for forgiveness.
