"Beggin for Thread" as written by Jillian Rose Banks, Jesse Rogg and Tim Anderson....
So I got edges that scratch
And sometimes I don't got a filter
But I'm so tired of eatin'
All of my misspoken words
I know my disposition gets confusing
My disproportionate reactions fuse with my eager state
That's why you wanna come out and play with me, yeah

Why? Why?
Why?

Stooped down and out, you got me beggin' for thread
To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
Stupidly think you had it under control
Strapped down to something that you don't understand
Don't know what you were getting yourself into
You should have known, secretly I think you knew

I got some dirt on my shoes
My words can come out as a pistol
I'm no good at aimin'
But I can aim it at you
I know my actions, they may get confusin'
But my unstable ways is my solution to even space
That's why you wanna come out and play with me, yeah

Stooped down and out, you got me beggin for thread
To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
Stupidly think you had it under control
Strapped down to something that you don't understand
Don't know what you were getting yourself into
You should have known, secretly I think you knew
(Secretly I think you knew)

Hold it out, whoa
Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better
Hold it out, whoa
Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better

Hold it out, whoa
Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better
Hold it out, whoa
Try to hide it out, but my tracks are better

Stooped down and out, you got me beggin' for thread
To sew this hole up that you ripped in my head
Stupidly think you had it under control
Strapped down to something that you don't understand
Don't know what you were getting yourself into
You should have known, secretly I think you knew
(Secretly I think you knew)

    General CommentA classical theme: "I am dangerous and if you want to play don't blame me for getting hurt".

    My InterpretationThe song is talking about how she is confusing at time and can be harsh or judgmental at times. She has a dark side. But that he knew all these things at that's exactly why he entered a relationship with her. But apparently she got close and he backed out 'ripping a hole' in her head. She thought he could handle her but he couldn't and she ended up hurt. But now she thinks he knew the whole time what she was and always planned to leave. He tried to cover up what was really going through his head but she figured it out now because her "tracks are better."

    Awesome song.

    My InterpretationDon't pick on people because they are different and don't assume that they can't defend themselves because you never seen them do so yourself. Doing this sometimes leave you violently on your back physically or or even mentally. You will walk away knowing you have picked on the wrong person.

    General CommentAs a person who suffers from mental illness, this song speaks to me on a personal level. I think she's saying she's not perfect, no one is, but that she was upfront and doesn't hide her imperfections. She is who she is. He said he accepted her with those flaws and then he backed out and said he didn't know what he was getting into. She says I secretly think you did. Meaning he knew and he's using it as an excuse. Her begging for thread is her asking what was the real reason he left. She wants to know the truth. I think this song is kind of calling him out. He loved the good times but couldn't handle the bad and used her behavior as an excuse and the song is a personal "F-You" the to him.

    By far one of the most amazing songs I've ever heard.
