under the covers. i hold my breath. i hide my head. from alarm clocks and lovers. that wake me when i wish i were dead. what do you want from me. wake me when i'm not over it. i can't think straight with nothing left to say. said it all when i was sober. legion of liars. don't want to face another day. what am i here for. why do i treat myself this way. you said you had enough of me. you said you had enough of this lie. what do you want from me. you can't believe i'm not over it. can't think straight. with everything to say. come to think i'm irrelevant. and they say my time will come. and they say my day will come. but it's walking straight away from me. can't think straight. with everything to say. come to think i'm not over it. can't believe you said you had enough of me. away from me

    General CommentI think this song is about ignoring things that you have to let go off, like a relationship which has come to an end but you don't want to let go of what you had and you might still be in love with the person that hurt you.
    People keep saying that "his time will come" and that he will find what he needs but he doesn't want to let go from the past or a certain someone and instead rather wants to hide "under the covers", "in his head" and "hold the breath", signalising that he or she is not ready for what's to come and wants back the old life so badly.

    I've been in such a position before and that's how I interpret this song anyways - maybe, especially because of what happened back then.
