I never thought I’d lead this restless life.
I thought I’d wither down, a sacrifice.
There’s nothing I can do to make it stop.
It’s in my nature. It gives me chills.

I never thought life would last this long.
I thought I’d be found out so long ago.
There’s nothing I can do to make it stop.
It’s in my nature. It gives me chills.

Get off my back.

Is this what it’s like? Is this what it’s going to be like?

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a depressed person, who knows there is no hope, and wants to kill themselves, but has been too afraid, or unwilling

    "I never thought my life would last this long" this indicates the person has felt this way for the longest time and is surprised they have lasted this long

    "Theres nothing i can do to make it stop" knowing the pain they feel will never go away,
    "Its in my nature, it gives me chills" knowing that they're always going to feel this way, and that thought scares them

    "Get off my back" someone is offering help to the person, and they're denying it, because they know, it's in their nature.
