So trusting, stop feeling sorry for me,
Don't touch me, I'll never leave this place.

I'll only let you down, for fucking sake believe me
I know I'll find a way, to pull myself from the grave.

I'm feeling careless,
With your fragile little heart,
How could I bare this,
When it's tearing you apart?

I'm filth, I'm dirt, I'm yours,
And now I'm shaking,
This pain that fuels my will, is slowly fading,
Save me from myself, I'm going down, down, down!

So trusting, stop feeling sorry for me,
Don't touch me, I'll never leave this place.

I'll only let you down, for fucking sake believe me,
I know I'll find a way, to pull myself from the grave.

Where I've gone to, there's not a single light in sight,
The sounds will haunt you,
This hell's not what I had in mind!

It's crawling up my spine, and now I'm shaking,
My hate, my sympathy, is slowly fading
Save me from myself, I'm going down, down, down.

So trusting, stop feeling sorry for me,
Don't touch me, I'll never leave this place.

I'll only let you down, for fucking sake believe me,
I know I'll find a way, to pull myself from the grave,
(I'll pull myself from the grave!)

You'd better get out while you can,
This isn't going anywhere,
I've bitten through my fingernails,
I only warn you 'cause I care...

Save me from myself I'm going down, down, down!

So trusting, stop feeling sorry for me,
don't touch me, I'll never leave this place.

I'll only let you down, for fucking sake believe me,
I know I'll find a way, to pull myself from the grave!

    My InterpretationThe singer has some sort of mental disorder and feels like a burden. I can relate to this song very much.

    So trusting, stop feeling sorry for me,
    Don't touch me, I'll never leave this place.

    He doesn't want people to feel sorry for him, he feels that it's all his fault and believe people trust him too much even after what he has become.

    I'll only let you down, for fucking sake believe me
    I know I'll find a way, to pull myself from the grave.


    Like what I said above, he believes that no matter what he will only let those he loves down, but he will make it out of by himself instead of hurting them and having them help.

    I'm feeling careless,
    With your fragile little heart,
    How could I bare this,
    When it's tearing you apart?

    The lyrics sort of speak for themselves. He's feeling careless in how he's acting and he knows that because the people around him love him what he does/and or how he feels and how down he is hurts them because they hate seeing him that way. And it's almost too much for him to handle that it's hurting those he loves.


    Where I've gone to, there's not a single light in sight,
    The sounds will haunt you,
    This hell's not what I had in mind!

    It's crawling up my spine, and now I'm shaking,
    My hate, my sympathy, is slowly fading
    Save me from myself, I'm going down, down, down.

    This is the bad side of him to me. The side that makes him care less about others because of all the hurt he's been through. Read the lyrics a few times and it makes sense.

    I'm filth, I'm dirt, I'm yours,
    And now I'm shaking,
    This pain that fuels my will, is slowly fading,
    Save me from myself, I'm going down, down, down!

    He's filth and he's wrong but he's still theirs and they love him and he loves them too. But everything he is has him shaking and all the pain he was going through that made him feel alive isn't working anymore. Although he doesn't want to burden them, he still feels like he wants their help and there's a side of him that continues to reach out. "Save me from myself."

    You'd better get out while you can,
    This isn't going anywhere,
    I've bitten through my fingernails,
    I only warn you 'cause I care...

    He's warning them and trying to keep them away because he cares about them and doesn't want them to get hurt from seeing him so low.
