"Again" as written by Tae Yeon Won and Myung Jun Kim....
Hey, let 'em do it again, yeah
Hey, you said you were my friend
Hey, turn me upside down, oh
Hey, feelin' so down
Hey, hey, hey, hey

You made a fool of me again
And again, and again, and again, and again
And again, and again, and again, and again

Hey, I know I made the same mistake, yeah
I, I won't do it again, no
Why, why you slap me in the face, ow
I, I didn't say it was ok, no
No, no

You violated a part of me again
And again, and again, and again, and again
And again, and again, and again, and again

Ah, ooh
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah

Hey, you had time to think it out, yeah
Hey, your weak will won't help her heal her heart
Hey, I'll bet it really eats you up, huh

Extending part of me again
And again, and again, and again, and again

Ooh
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah

Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot, yeah
Doot doot, yeah, doot doot

    My InterpretationTo me the song is about either a sexual relationship you'd really be better off without, or about a drug addiction.

    The "said you were my friend" is the illusion of being in control, "why do you slap me in the face" is being hurt, despite thinking one was in control (and not saying it was OK), and in the end, realization that nothing is going to change or be helped, and resigning to that it just "really eats you up".

    "You made a fool of me again and again and again..." could be about feeling stupid to have ended up in bed with this person again, or about doing stupid things while high.
    "You violate a part of me again and again..." Both a destructive relationship and a drug habit violates parts of you; your sensibilities if nothing else.
    "Extending part of me again and again..." The final (slightly delayed) surrender, simply put either getting a hardon or extending the arm to shoot up, admitting that this will keep happening again and again and again.
