I am waiting 'til there's nothing left
I'm a prayer, all you see is breath
I am empty, I am skin and bones, I'm a ribcage
Well, I'm out the door with apathy
And I'm coming home with sympathy
I am realize, I am shame, I choose to stay here

You got a sign, so I pay the ransom
You felt sorry, so I fucked her outcome
Had a nice grip on my life 'til you twisted my arm
My arm

There's a song I love so much I stole
Every precious note I took, I sold
Now I spit out words 'til you see my lungs on the dance floor
To a hopeless cause, I sold my soul
A romantic plastic piece of shit you can mold
Until I break into chokable pieces

You got a sign, so I pay the ransom
You felt sorry, so I fucked her outcome
Had a nice grip on my life 'til you twisted my arm
My arm

And I open up like the back of a book
I ruin it within a drift, I kept looking (??)
I settle down like a rocket explodes
Hit the ground while I file every note (??)

You got a sign, so I pay the ransom
You felt sorry, so I fucked her outcome
Had a nice grip

    General CommentThe meaning of this song is really confusing.....the two verses seem to mean different things to me.
    The first verse and chourus seem to be the classic "being used in a relationship" kinda theme.....he or someone is being undervalued by his/their partner " i am a prayer all you see is breath" he is saying he is better than what the other person thinks of him....."i am out the door with apathy im coming home with sympathy" every time he leaves he comes back apolageticaly........This all seems very relationshipy (if that is a word)

    However the 2nd verse seems so much to be about selling out....which many people think they did and they write about but i dont think Alk3 sold out at all but this verse seems to be about nothing else....."theres a song i love so much....every precious note i took i sold"..."now i spit out words" "to a hopeless cause i sold my soul" ( the record company) "a romantic, plastic piece of shit you can mould" commenting on how record companys manipulate bands to their way of thinking.....it may be a song about bands selling out in general...anyone got any other thoughts cos i want to be wrong on this point
