There’s a war inside you
and I can’t escape the ground
I’m losing my lifeline
because you just can’t face the truth
Your face deceives me
You tie me with your words
Fall on your own stones,
but still it’s my mistake
Forgive me - Forgive me for your sins

I want to ease your pain, but you turn your head away
I found you in your rain, but you can’t find me

This stupid game we’re playing
You know we both will lose
Locking all your doors
No one gets in, no one gets out
Please release the rope that holds me
so I can reach your mind
There’s something holding me
Oh, there’s someone holding me
Forgive me - Forgive me for your words

I want to ease your pain, but you turn your head away
I found you in your rain, but you can’t find me
(x4)

    My InterpretationI take this as being about someone that the narrator deeply loves (romantic, friendship, family) and is trying to reach out to someone who holds their emotions close to them. That is, don't want to share or ask for help from others.

    To me personally it comes across as a lover trying to get their partner to open up to them. Tell me what is wrong, but get no response. No matter what they say or promise the partner will not open up to them ... and this is getting to the narrator. They want to share their burdens, be supportive but to no avail.
