Lyric discussion by Depth 

This is what Matt Scannell (lead singer) said it is about:

Well, the long shot of it is I was basically in love with this beautifully complex and crazy person who could see everything around her except for the thing that could actually help her. And I just thought of a tormented glass-is-half-empty person who was in pain about a bunch of things that had happened to her in her life, and always wound up looking to the wrong places to find solace and to find help. And then when that was over, she would just be emptier than she was before. And I could just see her kind of sinking. It was written out of frustration, it was written out of sadness from my perspective, a sense of wishing that she would turn to me, and to realize that I wanted to help her. Maybe she couldn’t see it being what she really needed, and she never did. So the last chorus is really that chance that I had to say, “Hey, look — enough. I love you. I can help you, but I don’t mean anything to you at all.” A lot of people have said that they think it might be about God, and it might be about religion, and I’ve always tried to steer clear of nailing it too far on the head. But if you’re asking me directly, that’s really where it came from.
