Nothing ever stops all these thoughts and the pain attached to them
Sometimes I wonder why this is happenin'
It's like nothing I can do would distract me when
I think of how I shot myself in the back again
'Cause from the infinite words I can say I
Put all pain you gave to me on display
But didn't realize instead of setting it free I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

(Never goes away)
(Never goes away)

And now you've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

Hearing your name the memories come back again
I remember when it started happening
I see you n' every thought I had and then
The thoughts slowly found words attached to them
And I knew as they escaped away
I was committing myself to em n' everyday
I regret saying those things 'cause now I see that I
Took what I hated and made it a part of me

(Never goes away)
(Never goes away)

(And now you've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

(Never goes away)
(Never goes away)
(Never goes away)
(Never goes away)

(Get away from me)
Give me my space back you gotta just (go)
Everything comes down the memories of (you)
I kept it in without letting you (know)
I let you go so get away from (me)
Give me my space back you gotta just (go)
Everything comes down the memories of (you)
I kept it in without letting you (know)
I let you go

And then you've become a part of me
You'll always be right here
You've become a part of me
You'll always be my fear
I can't separate myself from what I've done
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you
I've let myself become you
I've let myself become
Lost inside these thoughts of you
Giving up a part of me
I've let myself become you

    General CommentThis song is about being abused. Most likely as a child. Hating everything about it and instead of ever being healed, keeping it inside and as a result doing exactly what he hated to others. Not making sence at all but becoming the abuser and now accepting what he has become, he wants HIS abuser to just GO AWAY! This is what I think it means because I have lived this very same pain myself!

    General CommentI like this song alot. I think it's about becoming what you hate - or acting like someone you hate.

    This song is played in SWAT during the back shootout.

    General CommentThis song is about what ChaoX. Its about separating with someone. But everytime you think about that someone you get those memories. "You become a part of me" Meaning that everything you do your reminded of that person and the painful rememories is things like saying that you loved the person. That you knew that those word were going to hurt sooner or later but your trying really hard to let go of those feelings but your surrendering to those thoughts and now there haunting you.

    My InterpretationThis song reminds me of how I used to be in abusive relationships and now that I’m in a good one I say nasty things to her and emotionally abuse her I’ve realized this and we are working together to fix it
