There's someone down below, blowing you a kiss
They watch from their windows
As all arms fall to their sides
And all eyes fix on the death of tomorrow
And you found everything you need
To make a life complete
Completely revolting and they have safety and relief
For sale down the street
I see you in line every day

You had time to waste and I'm not sorry
Such a basket case, hide the cutlery
I had time to kill it's dead and buried
You've got guts to spill but no one trustworthy

These creatures are waking up in these dark trees
Waiting like vultures
Eyes roll back turn white in time to feed
They salivate with hunger
For you and everything they need
To make a death complete
Completely unnatural and salvation lies
Behind those dead eyes that watch you while you sleep every night and

You had time to waste and I'm not sorry
Such a basket case, hide the cutlery
I had time to kill it's dead and buried
You've got guts to spill but no one trustworthy

You had time to waste and I'm not sorry
Such a basket case, hide the cutlery
I had time to kill it's dead and buried
You've got guts to spill but no one trustworthy

    General CommentI think drug use is a good guess....The first verse seems to represent this. "they have saftey and releif for sale down the street. i see you in line everyday"...The chourus is a little more confusing but i think he is showing how the drug use is affecting the person and why they turned to drugs.
    "Hide the cutlery" could be a reference to self harm
    "youve got guts to spill but no one trustworthy" is saying how the person has so much to get of their chest but no one to say it to (so they turn to drugs as a release?) This also seems to backed up in the first person. "theres someone blowing you a kiss. They watch from their windows" the person watching in concern, but keeping a distance as the other persons life is falling apart

    The second verse seems to be a nightmare that this person has (as a result of drugs?) "dead eyes that watch you as you sleep" (nightmare?)

    These are my initial thoughts
