Midnight came and went
I lie awake and speak with the moon
Broken in a million pieces again, I numb myself with the substances
It’s not the same
It may look that way but the faces have surely changed
Give me the blame and I will bury it deep down
And keep it from surfacing
Swing the noose my way
I’ll hang here, I deserve to stay
Swing the noose my way
Until I’ve changed my ways
Never sink this low
I remember writing it on my arms
Looking down at skin, I see where I’ve been
And the burn inside my heart
How many times can I bring it down here?
How many times can I put it back?

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about someone who's an addict but is in denial and now they've finally hit rock bottom and this song is their plea to the world, it's their crying out that they are now aware of how far they've fallen. It's them saying they now are seeing the error of their ways and they rehabilitation and they're saying they need time to correct their ways before they sink even lower into the abyss of darkness.
