I've seen it turn from white to red
And I've heard you talk about how you bleed
And it doesn't mean shit

Until I see some action
A hint of rose, and a mountain of garbage
Leaves me for dead, nothing drags me

From breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself, to try to keep
Everyone from walking over me

Smell the burning wreckage of even you
All of your perfection
Let's get inside the bag
Turn it 180 degrees

Forget we even met
'cause it all comes down to this
The good ones always leave in the end

Breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself
Breaking myself, to try to keep
Everyone from walking over me

I see the world and it all looks blue
I kiss the world and it all tastes true

The blurry eyes make me appealing in a normal fashion
Another two or three and you will become very friendly
Your liquidation is a siren song, you swim I follow
I'm feeling my head sink
So as to reach and touch what hurts me
Still I try to reach and touch what hurts me

    General CommentThe last verse has to be about substance.
    Drugs make him "appealing in a normal fashion"

    So he keeps reaching out to them, even though he knows the consequences.
