Turning to the right, feel it getting tight
Demand of the heart, my hands rip apart
I'm so afraid, my welcome overstayed
Never find a way to make all this O.K.
Sleepless nights, I am forever awake

Just one taste--won't let it go to waste
The way I feel--Never to reveal
Just one taste-of my own space

Fucking sick of this, hope my tongue don't slip
Familiar trips, loosen up its grip
Instinct never worked anyway, what I've seen I just can't say
My sight's been taken, my eyes betray

Just one taste--won't let it go to waste
The way I feel--Never to reveal
Just one taste-of my own space

My hands at my back, pushing violent acts
The truth an artifact
The rabbit in the hat
Kicking out this make believe
Dedicate a new belief
The risk runs high, but I've gotta try
Hold it all inside, until the day I die

    this song could be about trying to keep a secret, and feeling it weighing on your conscience. It seems that in the song they have to keep a secrect about something they have seen because telling the truth would involve betraying someone close to them.

    actually, now i think this song is specifically about trying to keep a secret from the police. The police are riding him hard and hes a suspect in a major crime. Possibly a crime of passion and he wants some space from the police. eventually in the last verse it seems that the cops try beat a confession out of him while he is handcuffed. "My hands at my back, pushing violent acts The truth an artifact" "Kicking out this make believe" so they beat him untill he confesses a false version of events. Or something like that.

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
