"With Or Without You" as written by and Dave Evans Adam Clayton....
I'll do my time and I won't argue
A broken glass a portrait of you
I play on keys of barely in tune
Forget the reasons I won't resume
It's not me who wanted fame
I just needed to

I cash my life and lost my ID
Apathy is all I see
Leave the numbers all behind me
You are all I've got inside me

I don't need to be en caged
I just need to rearrange

I can't see you anymore
I can't leave right out the door
After all that we've been through
I can't be with or without you

You finally made it on TV
It's not the way you hoped it'd be
And all the pain of the insanity
Was this ever meant to be
And I don't think that I am thee
One that you keep telling me

It's tearing us up
And it's breaking me down
ALL I'll be, I'll be
Without or without you

    General Commentthe song might be of someone going into prison or mental hospital, and he/she has someone that constantly goes through the bad times with them... until they die or something and thats when he/she's gone completely insane.

    General Commentwell to me, this song seems to be form of two ways:

    It's about a relationship where one person cannot live with or without his partner. He/she hates them but also loves them so much. He has a hard time deciding what he/she wants.

    Or it could mean of one person leaving another (whether they had a romance, strong friendship,bro-bro) and making far but in the end its as if its not what they really wnated

    General CommentI don't know what Dope song is more depressing, this one, or Easier. But this song, man, I have a lot of feelings about this song, its a very saddning song. Cause it reminds me of this girlfriend I had that I felt like was the one, and now we cant be with or without each other it sucks living without her.

    General Commenti like this song. i think it's my favorite dope song. i take the meaning at face value here. it's someone being the life and death of you. i can relate.
