"Smother" as written by Elena Veronica Tonra and Igor Alexandre Haefeli....
I'm wasted, losing time
I'm a foolish, fragile spine
I want all that is not mine
I want him but we're not right

In the darkness I will meet my creators
And they will all agree, that I'm a suffocator

I should go now quietly
For my bones have found a place
To lie down and sleep
Where all my layers can become reeds
All my limbs can become trees
All my children can become me
What a' mess I leave
To follow

In the darkness I will meet my creators
They will all agree, I'm a suffocator

Suffocator
Oh no
I'm sorry if I smothered you
I sometimes wish I'd stayed inside
My mother
Never to come out

    My Interpretation"I'm wasted, losing time
    I'm a foolish, fragile spine
    I want all that is not mine
    I want him but we're not right"
    -To me this is talking about "inner demons". In my case-Depression, anxiety, bipolar, anorexia. Also feelings of guilt, shame, regret, jealousy, lust, etc.

    "In the darkness I will meet my creators
    And they will all agree, that I'm a suffocator"
    -To me this describes laying in bed at night wishing to die. You're depressed and are contemplating what happens after death, how you die, etc. You feel like a burden on everyone; you're suffocating yourself, and those around you.

    "I should go now quietly
    For my bones have found a place
    To lie down and sleep
    Where all my layers can become reeds
    All my limbs can become trees
    All my children can become me
    What a mess I leave
    To follow"
    -I also feel this describes contemplating suicide. It seems almost peaceful, with mention of trees/children, and I would agree with the person wanting to be "useful". They don't want to hurt anyone around them anymore, but their feelings are such a mess.


    "Suffocator
    Oh no
    I'm sorry if I smothered you
    I sometimes wish I'd stayed inside
    My mother
    Never' to come out"
    -They feel so sorry for all the trouble/harm/hurt they've caused. They sometimes wish they never existed, because then they wouldn't have been a burden.
