"Lamentation" as written by and Leah G./marlette Andreone....
Oh God we're here
And goodbye chokes on my tears
While your exit seems so effortless
So mean, you don't fool me
When the morning wakes you'll grab for me
But the plane took me away
Are you scared of what you'll see
Do they mean more than me
Trying to try
Trying to give you all your lines
Trying to walk away without a move
Trying to catch your eyes

So they fall down
Out of reach out of sight
Are you scared of what you'll see
Are you scared of me
Immersed in love's encounter
The heavens merge with hell
My arms release my body
Your arms hold what I held
Finally I know you'll take me
Finally I know you fell
I climb into your body
Climb into my own cell
Don't turn the lights on
Don't turn the lights on

What's on your mind tonight
Don't think too much you'll go blind
Make it easy find a beast in me
Now I'm not your type
And I'll fly solo into my loner love
While you walk and play it safe
Aren't you scared I'll leave
Do they mean more than me

    Song MeaningI always believed that this song was just about a bad break up

    in the beginning they are saying good-bye as she is "choking back her tears"
    "while your exits seem so effortless, so mean. You dont fool me"
    he is trying to act like it doesn't affect him but she knows it does.

    "when the morning wakes you'll grab for me, but the plane took me away"
    so like...he realizes he wants her but she's already made up her mind.

    "what's on your mind tonight? don't think too much you'll go blind"
    she telling him not to think too much about her or he will be 'blinded' by tears

    "make it easy find a beast in me. now i'm not your type"
    meaning, find my flaws, find a reason to hate me so you don't love me anymore

    i think she felt second best to him and after a while she just couldn't take it anymore which she keeps asking "Do they mean more than me?" and the idea about sex works with the build up part, but i think the whole meaning of the whole song is more than that too. its what she did about the fact that she felt second best and possibly being used for sex. but he did love her. and she loved him. but you know....haha
