I've been running such a long time
I've been hiding from the truth
I've been battered, been broken, been buried
Now I'm death proof, death proof

And I been known to take a big chance
But I cant waste another shot at redemption
Oh, I'm ready don't let me go passing through the wrong hands, wrong hands
My confidence is in crisis mode your fingertips well they know the code

Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left
C'mon release me, release me take another piece of me
And there won't be another left unless you let go, unless you let go

I've been waiting for the sun to shine
Another winter ends the winter's starting over
We met beside a land mine waiting for the wind to blow

Now I'm in trouble with these friends of mine
A change was in my blood I lost my sense of direction
I dragged us to the bright light life is like a TV show
My fuse is set I'm pressing go your match is lit but it's burning slow

Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left
C'mon release me, release me take another piece of me
And there won't be another left unless you let go

I'll be nothing but sand falling down through your fingers to the ground below
Through your fingers to the ground below

I've been running I've been running
I've been running such a long time

Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left
Try to believe me release me take another piece of me
And there won't be another left unless you let go
Unless you let go (x8)

    My Interpretation:I think this songs about a guy who had a really bad breakup with a girl he really loved and he's having a hard time tryin to move on. Seems to me he tried everything he could to keep things going with this girl but she just wasnt interested anymore and all he did wasnt enough and he got hurt in the end, so he decided to move on. "And I been known to take a big chance, But I cant waste another shot at redemption "

    He thinks he has it kinda figured out now, but him being "death-proof" is actually a really fragile thing given that he still have feelings for her which he tries to repress for the sake of his sanity but the girl keeps getting on the way, trying to keep him close and teasing him even though she's no good to him. "My confidence is in crisis mode your fingertips well they know the code"

    The chorus is kinda like he's telling her to stop teasing him and leave him alone cause he's had to put up with a lot of crap, and he's done a lot of work to get over her but yet he's not strong enough to not give into the temptation of a shot at being with her again, which ultimately would hurt him badly cause she has no real interest in getting back together.
    "Release me and take another piece of me and there won't be another left (...) unless you let go"
