You fail me with every fatal crush
You fail me with every abandoned love
You fail me with your inferno fuck me eyes
That burn as fuel for my city and its neon lights

Burn bright white line fever take them all

You fail me with your new dead end dream
You fail me with your pill box fantasy
You fail me as love's greatest war
That was never worth
You were never worth fighting for

Burn bright white line fever take them all

Dying living dying living dying everyday
Living dying living dying living everyday

You think you are a poet
In your eyes you are a star
Who lives through fantasies of rising above
You think you're a victim
But you live as a drunk
That has never sacrificed that has never loved
You think you are tragic but i know you are lost
You have walked the fault lines
And you have crossed them all
This world doesn't fight you, you fight yourself
Thinking we fail you you fail yourself

    General Commenti think you fail me is a big reproach about jacob itself, or about a girl who got him down and he's willing to hurt her badly. But i think it's not just simple violence like i'm going to ruin your life by bleeding you in my lyrics, i think these lyrics just try to explain what you feel when you can't explain things to someone not willing or not able to understand you, or even claiming you don't understand them.
    You fail me must be a sentence jacob heard a lot, but he knew that the problem wasn't him, so he probably went on living, until one day he had to explain that this girl was destroying herself and their relationship without any help from him, she was the one disconnected from reality, giving to much credit to her hope, failing herself by not admitting her true nature.

    this is to me a beautiful song, wounding me deeply any time i listen to it, because i used to be the one failing to my girlfriend and blaming her all the time, thinking i was better than her, cleverer than her, and the first time i heard this song, i couldn't stop thinking about becoming something else than an asshole, about stopping considering myself a poet, that has never sacrificed, that has never loved, failing myself by blaming the others for failing me...

    sorry for the mistakes but i'm french so there may be some
