It's hard to perceive
My mind is at ease
It's hard to believe
I don't feel a thing

Am I wrong to feel
Such bliss that ain't real
Can I keep this from
Taking over me

Fell into, this moment
And now the chemical is taking the
Inside right out of me
I found a mountain of pure endless energy
I keep telling myself it's not reality

Now I'm seeing, now I'm seeing
That the world around me is now changing
Once it was a break that I could keep
I tried to walk away but I CAN'T


WHAT, What's inside my brain
What's breaking me down
What's inside this raging chemical?

Now it's time for me
To rest with ease
Now it's time
To allow my mind relief

But I can't stop
This feeling that I need
Can I keep this from taking over me?

Forget, all the regrets
As I indulge myself with every breath
Of this moment
Knowing I can't taste the beauty of life again
Without a chemical running through my head

Now I'm feeling, now I'm feeling
That the world around me's now changing
Once it was a break that I could keep
I tried to walk away but I can't


I feel it....
I see it...
I need it...

Never again, never again
Will I
Feel the same, feel the same
About me
Can I begin, can I begin
To start this whole life ooverr...

Never again, never again
Will I
Walk the same, walk the same
Around here
Can I forget, can I forget
That what lives within mee...

Never again, never again
Will I
Breathe the same, breathe the same
Air in
I want to live, I want to live
But they say
Never, NEVER

    no dumbass. it's about addiction. he can't live and perceive things without drugs or any form of intoxication. he wants to live without the drugs, but he can't. he's addicted.

    Song Meaning
    The song is about the difficulty of quitting methamphetamine. "It's hard to believe I don't feel a thing" (after a few days of meth use, when the body's endorphines are depleted, the user experiences feelings of emotionlessness) "...bliss that ain't real" (the heightened level of euphoria caused by the increase in endorphine output from meth use) "I found a mountain of pure endless energy" (many meth users will stay up for days or even weeks at a time) "Once it was a break that I could keep" (he used to be able to control his drug use [pre-addiction])

Blank Space
Taylor Swift
This song is Swift's response to the negative reputation the media has given her. "I can make the bad guys good for a weekend" - the bad guys are the paparazzi to Swift, but are good to the "player" since association with Swift immediately gives publicity. Any publicity is good publicity and Swift knows this. "You can tell me when it's over" - the tabloids rumor relationships are over before the couple announces it officially. With this song Swift is portraying the way she is portrayed by the media. It is a sarcastic jab at how she views herself and how her "ex-lovers" only wanted to be with her to increase their fame. I applaud the brilliance in writing about how you always write about relationships. It is expected so Swift is giving the media what they want and profiting off the attention.
