Lie awake, keep your cold eyes closed
Feel it crawl upon your chest
Bear it's teeth and steal your breath
Stay awake as its creeping close
If you're brave enough you'll see
As it stares it looks a lot like me
It looks like me

Though there's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Draw a line that cannot be crossed
Make a circle out of salt
Knowing it was all your fault
Hide inside, call your doting dogs
As their weak servility
Feeds your emptiness, remember me
In solitude you will sense me

Though there's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way to apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind

Forever feel it as it's gnawing
Forever crawling, ever crawling
Never caring always smiling
Here to feed when you are falling

There's no way I will materialize
Let the ghost that meets your eyes still haunt you, remind you
There's no way, you can't apologize
Your selfish words must float denied like your crime
I float now. We rewind
We rewind
I float now, forever
You did this. We rewind

    My InterpretationI'll keep it short and to the point:
    I think the song is someone speaking to someone from beyond the grave. Whatever this person's "crime" was was the cause of their death, and there's no way to apologize for it and they'll continue to be haunted by it.

    "I float now, forever
    YOU DID THIS. We rewind"

    The song has a very spiteful and aggressive tone and I'd imagine this is how a spirit would sound talking to the person they feel is responsible for their death.

    General CommentThis song is about the regret the betrayer feels, the suffering that Davey wishes upon them in "I hope you suffer" is creeping upon her. This girl is awake at night and Davey is haunting her, but not just that, he is feeding off of her suffering with a level of glee or satisfaction or maybe even a fake smile like all the fakery she used on him "never caring always smiling/here to feed when you are falling". The lines about drawing a line and circle of sand references her attempts to run away from the memory of him and what she had done. "Hide inside, call your doting dogs as their weak servility feeds your emptiness" leaning upon her friends or other men to hold her up like crutches she is grasping for relief but nothing can relieve her. These lines also imply, by "doting", an impression that she was probably quite narcissistic with many yes men around her probably because of her beauty or some such. Davey is also denying her his presence, he has removed himself from her physically, and states that she can't apologize, implying that she won't even have the benefit of relabeling some of that tremendous guilt. This entire albumn hits so close to home with what is going on my life exactly I know PRECISELY what Davey is singing about.
