I know your life is empty
And you hate to face this world alone
So you're searching for an angel
Someone who can make you whole

I cannot save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

I know that you've been damaged
Your soul has suffered such abuse
But I am not your savior
I am just as fucked as you (I am just as fucked as you)

I cannot save you
I can't even save myself
So just save yourself

Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me
Please don't take pity on me

My life has been a nightmare
My soul is fractured to the bone
And if I must be lonely
I think I'd rather be alone (I think I'd rather be alone)

You cannot save me
You can't even save yourself

I cannot save you
I can't even save myself
Save yourself
So just save yourself

    General CommentThis song is pretty self-explanitory. This is a really great song, though.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about Jesus Christ. He can not save you. He couldn't even save himself. Not personally how I feel about him, just what I think the song is about. I'm suprised no one else has brought that up in 10 years.

    General CommentI absolutely love these lyrics.

    I think the song is basically about someone turning to you to make them whole
    Yet....like the lyrics say - "I'm just as fucked as you"
    But truth be told...no love or person can make u whole..you gotta do that yourself.
    Reason why the song is so true and great!

    General Commentwow. this so is sooo great. I think its talking about how lots of ppl have been through bad expieriences in their lives and its talking about how I know you've been hurt and u need my help, but I cant help because I've been through the same crap and can't save myself. or something to that degree. Not to sure. Still think its a great song!

    General Commentto me this song is about how people are asking you for help for thinhs and your just like hell why ask me i need help 2. Death kinda said this so basically im just agreeing with him. I also think that a big part of this song is saying i didnt ask to help you, im going through it by myself, why dont you try it, dont come to me with your crap.
