Hung in your room, swaying, hoping only that you'll see.
All by myself, I'm alone in such poor company.
The deeper I think, the deeper I seem to sink,
I can't stop the insects that are feeding,
pull the needles from beneath my skin.
I broke myself, shattered, tied a bow around every peice.
You'll love the eyes.
Have they always shown so vacantly?
The more I show the less you'll want to know.
I can't stop the insects that are feeding,
pull the needles from beneath my skin.
Now I'm on display.
I am becoming.
Hurt myself today.
It's all for you.
Do you like what I'm becoming?
Hurt myself today.
It's all for you.
I part the night, flashing, approaching as I watch you flee.
Pushed through your panes.
Seems I've landed quite uncomfortably.
But as I pass through souls of broken glass
I can't stop the insects that are feeding.
Pull the needles from beneath my skin.
Please don't ask me what I think, trust me,
you don't want to know.
Please don't ask me to open up, trust me, trust me,
'cause I can't.

    General CommentPunk In Drublic says... yeah, we've already established that it's "cut myself today" good for that. I think this song deals with feelings of love, but of apprehensiveness towards this love. Maybe obsession too? Either way, this is one of the best AFI songs I've ever heard.

    General Commentthis song is everything i've ever tried to let out and say, but something is stoping me from doing it...i've tired too many times to write on the subject of cutting, but everytime i begin to write, it hurts to much describing. I have to thank Davey so much for this and does anyone know where i can find a biography on Davey? I think Davey has done a lot for people like myself and shows some sort of twisted hope...

    General Commentthis is the perfect example of an ideal lovesong... to me anyway. when davey says "Hurt myself today. It's all for you." and then later "Cut myself today. It's all for you." he is talking about the extreme devotion that one has when in love, a love that is so powerfull, that you would do anything for that person, even if it means hurting yourself.
