"Forgive and forget" as written by Bradley James and Stewart James....
For my time spent
Searching for the world.
I receive all I ever dream for,
In return all is taken away
Remember everything before tonight.
I remember everything before tonight.
These illusions that life is so clear
Have been cleansed from my thoughts.
Floating branches are the only things
Truly connected to the ground

Take me back to how it used to be
I'll never close my eyes again
How could I ever forget a place like this?
Somewhere that I can call my own
My eyes will never see where I'm suppose to be.

Take me back to how it used to be
I'll never close my eyes again
How could I ever forget a place like this?
Somewhere that I can call my own.

This is satisfaction
In it's most
Beautiful state.
Beautiful state
Surrounding me
Is everything
That is true,
Just let this be true,
Let this be

I won't forget this place
I won't forget, this is my own
I won't forget, open my eyes
I won't forget.
I won't forget.

    General CommentTo me, this song is about drugs and the drawbacks that come with them.

    "time spent searching for the world" = drug use. The singer is "Wanted" because doing drugs is illegal.

    "I receive all I ever dream for, In return all is taken away"
    I can do all the drugs I want, but now I realize there are consequences...

    "I remember everything before tonight"
    a clear reference to drug use and the common memory loss effect

    "These illusions that life is so clear, Have been cleansed from my thoughts"
    the idea that reality or point of view are constant and as simple as they appear has been altered after drug use

    "Floating branches are the only things, Truly connected to the ground"
    a non-sequitor, almost something that a high person would think, an unreasonable thought

    The rest is sort of self explanatory, and I don't feel like going into it, but Miss May I are some of the most underrated lyricists. Their lyrics aren't always clear, but they contain strong messages.

    General CommentI think (as opinion should be valid) that this song could be talking about amnesia, or possibly an accident thus causing the inability:

    "I receive all i ever dream for, in return all is taken away",

    honestly, you could just quote this entire song and it would make perfect sense but, alas; an opinion again has only so much water it can hold.

    (an elaborate exclusive)
    Johnny never thought to this day that he would nigh shed light upon his own demons to rid them, but rather shred it and paradoxically better understand that which engulfed his life with cacophony.
    He bore his family on his shoulders, their weight becomes sparse like the generations that will fall from the future like they did before him only shrugging them aside and wrenching his hands with their blood...

    A: "Hey, new guy."

    B: "Yeah?"

    A: "Do you see that man looking out window?"

    B: "Sure, just like half of all the others in this Cuckoo nest. What about him? Is he another one of those 'brilliant minds' they refer to?"

    A: "No."
    A: "He's lost within his own mind. They say he murdered his entire family, but I think someTHING made him. He's secluded himself deep in his mind so whatever it was, won't come back."

    B: "I'll be sure to plant extra flowers out there for him to look at then."
