"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 InterpretationAs many of the other interpretations are saying, I believe this song is about self conflict. I can relate so much.

    One of the main lyrics in the song is "I'm sorry if I smothered you." I think she is saying that she was being too clingy, controlling of another person. Even if the other person doesn't feel that way, she is pushing the other person away because she thinks she is suffocating them.

    She begins to think that she is suffocating to everything around her and says that "her creators will agree" that she is a suffocator.

    At this point, she feels as if she messed up with everything and doesn't feel as if she is worth it. She says "I will go now quietly."


    I can relate to this song so much, and I think it is an internal conflict of thinking that you don't deserve to love anyone or to love them because you "suffocate" them.
