Hallucinate in high fidelity
The pieces of a plan
Construction of the highest quality
The blood from my own hand

A line of lyric looping in my head
The body listening
It doesn't really matter anymore
Yes it doesn't mean a thing

I've gotta let go
I've gotta get straight
Why'd you have to make it so hard?
Let me get away

An effigy so wondrous to behold
Statements so profound
A place to bury everything I did
And burn it to the ground

A fire illuminates the final scene
The past repeats itself
I cannot tell the difference anymore
I cannot trust myself

I've gotta let go
I've gotta get straight
Why'd you have to make it so hard?
Let me get away

I've gotta let go
I've gotta get straight
Why'd you have to make it so hard?
Let me get away

I think I could lose myself in here
I think I could lose myself in here
I think I could lose myself in here
I think I could lose myself in here

I've gotta let go
I've gotta get straight
Why'd you have to make this so hard?
Let me get away

Got to let him go
Found another way
Why'd you have to make this so hard?
Let me get away

    General Comment"I think I could lose myself in here"
    I think this lyric pretty much describes the rest of the song.

    Finding various ways to get away from himself. Every one of them just making it harder to do it.

    Hallucinogens, Amphetamines, opiates

    and Music

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on this album. Trent is so fucking awesome.
    To me this song has nothing to do with drugs and that's just for tools.

    He knows what he has to do, but that doesn't make it any easier. He knows he fucked up in the past, and forgot his mission.

    "I think I could lose myself in here" < He really just loves doing what he does, making music

    Thanks :)

    My InterpretationI think this song is about taking a look at your life and assessing all the damage you've done to yourself and to others throughout the course of it. After seeing all the bad you've done you've come to the realisation that it's best to stay away from everything and perhaps everyone so you don't continue hurting them with all your issues. Hence, escaping and letting go, getting straight...cleaning up your act. He asks why'd you have to make this so hard, because it's hard to just cut all ties with your loved ones so easily.

    After typing all that, I realised it fits perfectly with the final episode of Dexter.
