Yeah, I hear the hum in my ears
It keeps me awake sometimes
I can deal with most everything
But I'm out of my mind when you're out of my sight

I would give everything
Deep in and empty out
Yeah, I would give everything you want
Everything you need

Hey, why can't you talk to me?
I hear your voice everywhere else
Oh, why do you have to be sloppy drunk
Just to say I am your friend?

I would give everything
Yeah, deep in and empty out
Oh, I would give everything you want
Everything you need
Everything means nothing to me

I remember now, you not me
I remember now, you failed
Yeah, I remember now, you not me
I remember everything

I remember everything, everything
I remember everything

Whoa, I would give everything
Yeah, deep in and empty out
Hoo, I would give everything you want
Anything to you

Everything means nothing
Yeah, everything means nothing
Yeah, everything means nothing to you
It's true
My everything means nothing to you
It's true

    I think this song is just about being in love with someone and being pretty much devoted to them when they don't even care about you.

    "Why do you have to be sloppy drunk just to say I am your friend?" That's it right there. The only satisfaction Art ever got in this song was when the person was intoxicated. It's when you've hit the point of realizing that you're the only one loving and caring in the relationship, but you're not giving up yet. Maybe saying "I would give everything you want/anything to you" will help, but likely it won't. This *has* to be one of my favorite EC songs. Too bad it's basically unheard of. Art himself even said that he never really finished the song. So sad. Also see Evanescence "Anything For You"

Mad Hatter
Avenged Sevenfold
Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
