- Stain it
My throat is dry
- Abuse it
When I keep the hate alive
- To keep it from running you
- Breathe it
your lips are tight
- Mistreat it
When I cover them with mine

- Breathe in, bleed out
This is a sickness
- Breathe in, bleed out
You cannot conceive
- Breathe in, bleed out
It takes the quiet
- Breathe in, bleed out
To not exceed

Where is your comfort now?
It's on the way out
Where are your reasons now?
They're all worn out

- Pull it
My throat is tight
- Push it
- Tie it up in knots and lose it
when I keep the hate alive
your lips are dry
- Let go of it
- All to keep it soft and cold
when I cover them with mine

- Breathe in, bleed out
It's an affliction
- Breathe in, bleed out
Nothing comes to mind
- Breathe in, bleed out
It's unstrategic
- Breathe in, bleed out
Nothing comes to mind

Where is your comfort now?
It's on the way out
Where are your reasons now?
They're all worn out

Where is your comfort now?
It's on the way out
Where are your reasons now?
They're all worn out

- Thy mouth must
- Thy mouth must
- Thy mouth must
- Thy mouth must

This is a sickness
You cannot conceive
It takes the quiet
To not exceed

    General CommentI think this song is about alcohol abuse, cause if you do drink, or at least to me, almost every line of this song makes me think that. Like "This is a sickness you cannot conceive, it takes the quiet to not exceed" and "Where is your comfort now, its on the way out" and maybe "My throat is dry when i keep the hate alive" meanin that the only time he doesnt hate is when he's drunk.
    Thats just a thought, maybe im right?

    General CommentI think Ecstacy is right with the alcohol abuse thing, but I'm thinking it may also have to do with sex, you can only be denied for so long unti lyou lose control, and under the influence or something, things happen that you wouldn't normally be comfortable with. The song may be about takign advantage of someone in this state. I could be wrong too.

    The low guitar part with the distorted mutterings is totally bad-ass. Does anyone know what is being said there? Anything?

    General Commentfirst off, what a kick ass title to a track

    looking at face value it's about Alcohol abuse like previously said

    but to me, it's about self abuse,

    "Where is your comfort now?
    It's on the way out
    Where are your reasons now?
    They're all worn out

    is the counselor/shrink/friend

    telling him that he needs to stop and there is no good reason hes doing this to himself

    This is a sickness
    You cannot conceive

    he's telling who ever that they don't have any idea wheres hes at or what hes thinking, that he simply can't stop

    and just so you know i forget but one of there members just checked into rehab again

    I wish you the best mate.
