You make me sick

I'll tear out those diamond eyes I can't bear to see
Crimson spills on paper skin
They call this tragedy
Remembering the nights when you'd whisper to me soft, "forever more my heart is yours"
Realize those words have died

As the life fades from your eyes
All that I can say is it may not be too late
Try again, make it perfect, make me worth it
Or else die for all I care

If I can not be loved then none shall be
Think of this as I softly kiss your blood glazed lips once more
On this night this thing you call love dies
Your face disgusts me, smile and bear your lies
This broken trust will become your demise

As the life fades from your eyes
All that I can say is it may not be too late
Try again, make it perfect, make me worth it
Or else die for all I care

After today silence will haunt you
Expect no forgiveness for your life will end tonight
Now I grit my teeth and finish what I know must be done
To kill the memory of you... and you said this would be forever

As the life fades from your eyes
All that I can say is it may not be too late
Try again, make it perfect, make me worth it
Or else die for all I care

    i think this song is about a guy who was with a girl and she said it was going to last forever, and he believed her. then when it was over he still loves her but he despises how he cant get over her, "your face disgusts me". i can relate to this because my ex girlfriend dumped me and she was my first love, and now its 5 months later and i still cant get over her and i hate myself and her for making me feel this way. anyways to get over her he says "after today the silence will haunt you" so he is shutting her out of his life. but this is probably just to get attention but now im over analysing the song.

    in conclusion i think the meaning is: he likes a girl, thought it was going to last, it didnt, and he dreads how he cant get over her.

    ...although, the third verse after "you make me sick" does strongly suggest that he kills her. im changin what i said (it kinda made sense to me before i saw that lol) and im agreeing with morphinextracy

    i disagree slightly, like you said its about a guy who fell deeply in love with a girl who said it would last forever and dumped him later. i think that he loves her so he wants them to try again, she can make it better than before but if she isnt going to he doesnt care about her, hense the chorus. in the line "after today silence will haunt you, expect no forgiveness" he thinks she will be wondering about their broken relationship, thinking she may want to be forgiven for what she did but he has no sympathy or forgiveness for her. there are many references to him killing her but i can also see "as the life fades from your eyes" as a metaphor for their very alive love being dead and her losing her meaning to him. in the line "now i grit my teeth and finish what i know must be done to kill the memory of you" i think it means that he is still in love with her and doesnt want to let her fade away but he has to forget her and move on. thats just what i think its about though :)

    this is definitely about a guy who got dumped by a girl who promised the realationship to last. he gets super sensitive and mushy and gets his revenge by killing her because he was serious about his love.
