Please leave me alone
For I can not let this go
It's the lie that I live
Everything that I give

Shut the fuck up

Please tell me that I have grown
For I have bruises left to show
And I fall in between everything

Let me see
Come on, get up
Let me see your bruises

'Cause I will never let you know
'Cause I will never let you go
Please leave me alone

Let me see, let me see, let me see
Come on, get up
Let me see your bruises

    General CommentI see this as a song about internal conflict.
    In the beginning, he's like singing slowly and complaining. "Please, leave me alone, for I cannot let this go." But then the other side of him snaps, screaming "Shut the fuck up". The next verse follows the same format, except he doesn't scream at himself this time. Instead he challenges the whining side of him. "Come on, get up, let me see your bruises". He's like taunting himself. Obviously, he went through some tough times and he wants to show proof of how fucked up he is, but at the same time, he's attacking himself for even thinking about complaining.
