Out here I can barely see my breath
Surrounded by jealousy and death
I can't be reached, only had one call
Dragged underneath, separate from you all

this time I've lost my own return
In spite of everything I've learned
I hid my tracks, spit out all my air
Slipped into cracks, stripped of all my cares

I'm so tired sheep are counting me
No more struggle, no more energy
No more patient and you can write that down
It's all too crazy and I'm not sticking round

    General CommentI agree with the suicide interpretation...especially when you consider the last stanza. "No more struggle, no more energy" "It's all too crazy and I'm not sticking 'round". Obviously, he plans to end it all.

    The first stanza is saying that he has isolated himself from the world (similar to the theme of Pink Floyd's "The Wall"). The second stanza could refer to drug use, but I think amw's interpretation is probably correct.

    I accidently stumbled upon this song while looking for the Beatles song of the same title. I think this song is sad and yet beautiful.
