"I Apologize" as written by and Waymon Boone....
You're down
So stay there
I'm clipping your unearned wings
My dear

You cry
For the outside
But I don't think you'll see it know

For rain that's fallen
Halfway down the sky
I apologize

You float like an angel
But then I wipe your cloud
And throw you out

You fall
Cause you can't fly
But I don't think you'll
Feel it now

For rain that's fallen
Halfway down the sky
I apologize
For sunlight burning holes in through your eyes
I apologize

The scent of the semen
Is what brought you here
We've made this clear
We slide on your inside
But I don't think we'll
Need it now

    General CommentAh, good song... It's about a friend that he hurt over and over. It's asking them for forgivness.

    General CommentWell it isn't about abortion. It's a very dark song. And I know that this will probably get me kicked off but I think it's a very yaoi song. The singer has a very controlling relationship with someone. And they're making it quite clear that they're the dominant one.

    General CommentI never knew what this song was really about, I just like the chorus part. But dianyx's interpretation sounds good, it does sound like maybe he's trying to keep her from "flying" or something and at the same time he's apologizing because things arent quite the way they're supposed to be.

    General Commentwell i was confused for a good while, especially at the semen part. i was like wtf? but really, LJetta33 prolly hit it right on the head- look at the lines "for rain that's fallen halfway down the sky", "you float like an angel", "i don't think you'll feel it now". plus the abortion theme finally makes the semen line fit in. the whole tone was always about something unfinished to me (like a pregnancy?) like a mixture of remorse and vindication. a genuine apology that almost sounds sarcastic because of relief that it's over.

    General CommentTotally - All these years I just loved the song for the beat, but the abortion theme is right on. Wow.

    General CommentHuh. I've never gotten an abortion vibe out of this song. I've always figured it was about another guy, one who is infatuated with the singer, not a woman at all.
