Today I finally lost it
today I went insane
From waiting and from pushing
but I'm the one to blame
Today I learned my lesson
I'll never step out of line
I'll close my eyes and whisper
and everything will be just fine

Wait I've almost got it
don't give up on me yet
I'd really love to show you
I did it all, I did it all for you

    General CommentThe saddest thing is that I'm the only one to comment on this musical masterpiece!

    I compare this song to something Radiohead would create with the help of a band like Mogwai. There's such a melancholy sadness in the song that allows your mind to seamlessly float between the Bitter and the Sweet. It slowly builds until it finally soars into an epic climax of sound taking your soul and mind through a space of emotional release until it fades into a void of haunting emotion. The music and lyrics flow together so well that this picture is so clearly seen and felt every time you listen to it.

    Obviously this song is about giving up and failing. As if something continues to become bottled up inside. With lyrics like "Today I learned my lesson, I'll never step out of line. I'll close my eyes and whisper, and everything will be just fine." suggests that no more will they attempt to live or have any sense of self. As life has brought them to their knees and they will quit fighting in hopes that it will have enough pity to leave them be.

    Right when they think they have almost fixed everything, as they bottle up everything as best they can, everyone gives up on them and leaves. Whether this is a relationship or something else is unclear but the feeling is still the same. After the lyrics end the music takes care of the rest as you can almost feel that emotional breakdown when the climax kicks in. They embody the numb feeling after the breakdown slowly fades out and you are left to your thoughts to reflect. Such a sad song but its so true to the emotions it portrays...

    Couldn't help but ramble, this song is so PERFECTLY done that it astounds me with every repeated listen...
