Get the fuck away from me!

I know that I have done wrong and continue to do so but without remorse
I know that I am on a fast track to the grave and I'm headed there alone
I struggle to find myself this time
Save yourself for a man with a conscience
I fight to find myself this time
Save yourself for a man that is not me

I spend my days looking through pages
Tryin to find a way, to get away from me
A love to give that leaves you breathless
Now all I need to find, a way back inside my mind.

I don't want to leave you breathless
When will you realize
I don't want to leave you breathless
When will you realize
I don't want to leave you breathless
When will you save yourself
Yeah!

I spend my days looking through pages
Tryin to find a way, to get away from me
A love to give that leaves you breathless
Now all I need to find, a way back inside my mind

I need to find
A way back inside my mind (x2)

This is not the end,
This is the end of,
This is not the end,
This is the end of,
This is not the end,
This is the end of,
This is not the end.

RAH!
OHH!

Every mistake I've made leaves a scar that burns every day
Yet still I carry on.
Without regret without remorse I'm gone
You're better off to walk away
I am corruption, I am sin.

Forget my name
Forget my face,
Forget my name
Forget my face.

    No, this is about a girl he wanted to be with but he does bad things like drugs and alcohol and he will hurt her and he knows it but he wont regret it when he does because he has no concience.
    Hence: "save yourself for a man with a conscience"
    and he wants her to not get hurt so he tells her to go with someone who is better for her.

    My meaning to breathless is that there is a monster inside of me and I need to release it before it leaves me breathless. It also means a lot to me because asking alexandria are amazing and I don't know what I'd do without their music in my life. They have been through so much. It teaches me to stay strong and I will have closure. ♥.

    The meanuing of the song is there someone who keeps trying to get into his life and he doesn't want them to so he struggles against them. "i dont want to leave you breathless" he thinks that in them getting close to him it will cause them to be breathless (dead) and hes trying to stop that "when will you save yourself. Hes a monster and hes trying to stop it and in the end he kills himself "forget my name" "forget my face".

    The sinner's guilt is one not easily over come. Lying, cheating, stealing, hurting is all he's ever known. He has done it all his life to strangers, friends, even the loves in his life. He sees the wrong he has done and he sees the sin turns into a person he does not like. He wants to change, but the path is difficult. He knows if he stays that way he'll hurt everyone and doesn't want that to happen. He pushes his love, his friends, and family away so they'll be safe but all he wants is for them to be around him. He want them all to leave him, to forget him, so they'll be better off. , because he dies slowly living with his guilt every day.

    It's about a man who has done so much and he can't control himself. He struggles with his actions to try and become the person he once was. He knows his current self leads to nothing but destruction for himself and whoever the other person is that is referenced in the song. He is advising the other person to find someone else before they become consumed by his actions as well. The other person is quite possibly someone he loves and cares about. It's the story of a struggle between a man and his life choices/actions who is searching for his old self, perhaps. Great song.
