"Third Day of a Seven Day Binge" as written by and Brian Warner....
We've only reached the third day of a seven-day binge
And I can already see your name disintegrating from my lips
We've only reached the third day of a seven-day binge
I can already see your name disintegrating from my lips

I can't decide if you wear me out or wear me well
I just feel like I'm condemned to wear someone else's hell
We've only reached the third day of a seven-day binge
I can already see your name disintegrating from my lips

I got bullets, in the booth
Rather be your victim, than be with you
I got bullets, in the booth
Rather be your victim, than be with you

I've reached the third day of a seven-day binge
I can already see your name disintegrating from my lips

I'd rather be your victim, than to be with you
Rather be your victim, than be with you

    My InterpretationSo first of all you need to understand that MM is someone who doesn't like to get the feeling that he has to change. You either accept and love him for who he is or you don't. There is no point in trying to change him. Ok, so here we go:

    "We've only reached the third day
    Of a seven day binge,"

    MM and his latest loved one go on a 7 day vacation.
    This is only the third day and problems are on the horizon.

    "I can already see your name
    Disintegrating from my lips."

    He's calling out her name but not necessarily in a good way.
    They most likely are having a fight.

    "I can't decide if you're wearing me out
    Or wearing me well,"

    He's not sure if she's right for him or not. Is she trying to change him for the better or just turn him into something she wants him to be?

    "I just feel like I'm condemned
    To wear someone else's hell."

    Just like in previous relationships, she tries to change him for what she wants him to be. And that makes him feel like being himself is not good enough.
    He now realizes that he has become her hell, just like the one before and this might probably never change.

    "I've got bullets in the booth,
    rather be your victim than be with you."

    He'd rather fight her at this point, and he's about to break it off.

    It's not looking good and it will most likely end with a break up even before the vacation is over.

    General CommentI think this is about reuniting with a former lover, knowing it's not good but enjoying it at the same time. It's a binge because they are like an addiction or a drug that you can't completely quit.

    General CommentI think this one is pretty straight-forward. The persona of the song broke up (or is about to break up) with someone, and takes drugs to get rid of all the memories. So far, it's working ("I can already see your name disintegrating from my lips").

    "I got bullets in the booth / Rather be your victim than be with you" is the trickiest part of the song. Maybe this person is in a booth, talking over the phone with their beloved; probably just arguing, and thinking about suicide ("Rather be your victim than be with you").

    Notice that the gender of both the person taking drugs and their beloved aren't mentioned in any part of the song; even if MM is singing, the poetic "I" could be a man or a woman, and the relationship could be either heterosexual or homosexual. It isn't specified in the lyrics.

    My Interpretation“I can't decide if you're wearing me out, or wearing me well”

    He can’t decide if his current girlfriend is not a good fit for him, or if she is a perfect fit. Sometimes this is a hard distinction to make when you love someone.

    General CommentBinge: 1.a short period devoted to indulging in an activity to excess.
    The binge is the woman he's involved with.
    It's the beginning of the end of whatever this intense shit is that he had with this chick. But basically it was over before it started ("I can already see your name..."). Because he gets in too deep but isn't gonna take on her issues "condemned to wear someone else's hell"
    He's so f*cked up over it he can't decide if it's good or bad "I can't decide if you wear me out or wear me well."
    "I got bullets, in the booth" His ammunition is these lyrics/recording booth. But he's not gonna fight back because he'd rather he her victim than be with her.
    It's called dysfunction and while she's too dysfunctional for him to ride it out with, he's dysfunctional enough that he'd put himself in the position to be her victim.
    And this is why I love him.
