I got a candle
And I've got a spoon
I live in a hallway with no doors and no rooms
And under a window sill
They all were found
A touch of concrete within the doorway
Without a sound

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

How did I get here
And what went wrong
Couldn't handle forgiveness
Now I'm far beyond gone
And I can hardly remember
The look of my own eyes
How could I love this,
My life so dishonest
It made me compromise

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Jump in the water
Jump in with me
Jump on the altar
Lay down with me
My hardest question
To answer is why

Someone save me if you will
And take away all these pills
And please just save me, if you can
From my blasphemy in my wasteland

Someone save me [Repeat: x2]
Somebody save me [Repeat: x2]
Please don't erase me

    General CommentI took a friend to the 3 doors down concert and Shinedown and alterbridge(new phoenix from the ashes of creed) and I was really blown away by both all of the performances. This song was awesome, and he said at the concert that it wasn't just about drugs, but needing to be saved in general. That when he wrote it, he was out a point in his life where he felt like he was helpless... Awesome song live.

    General CommentI think this line:
    I live in a hallway with no doors
    And no rooms
    is alot less metaphorical then your speculating... I think the guy lives in an alley.

    General CommentThis is definently a song about drugs. "I got a candle and I got a spoon." He's talking about heroine! It's all about the way drugs trap you and how it often seems there is no escape

    General CommentI really can't waite for the new album! These guys are awesome.

    As for the song, I heard an interview with them on Sirius radio, and it is not exclusively about drugs, more so needing to be saved.

    General Commentits a real good song ,sounds great.
    YES!! it is obv about drug addiction and the kind of wasted life people spend due to it and how it eventually leads to the ultimate downfall .....

    its a pretty easy song to comprehend , nothing great or deep , quite stupid actually . But the song sounds really nice .
