I'm out the door, I'm on my ass again like every night before
I'm off the wall, out of my fucking mind, I'm out of control
I'll be the end of her, I'm in her head and in control
She's let me in, now take a sip and let the show begin
The floor's all yours, the house is full
You've made the slip now take the fall
I pull your strings, she's too deep in
So will she sink or swim

Ladies and gentleman
Place your fuckin bets, here we go

Oh she's down, how very spectacular
What a work of art I've spawned
Man am I proud of myself on this one
She's such a fucking masterpiece
Self destruction in such a pretty little thing

I know that I should walk away
But I can't bring myself to quit this game
She's just a beautiful girl with the weight of the world on her shoulders
I'm just a kick in the teeth from a world that's painted gold.

Turn the fuckin' tables

She's out the door, she's on her ass again like every night before
She's off the wall, out of her fucking mind, she's out of control
I was the end of her
In her head, in control

Just like before
I should've told you again
That I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
Just like before
I should've told you again
That I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

Just like before
I should've told you again
That I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
Just like before
I should've told you again
That I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

Just like before
I should've told you again
That I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry
I'm so sorry

    I think that the girl it was talking about reprented the alcohol,drugs,and sex Danny had and he still was perfect, then at ''Turn the fuckin' tables'' was when his life when downhill and he needed help and he was sorry about all he did.
    *If you see the music video it would make more sense.*

    Many people get different messages from the same song. This is just what i think that like he is into drugs and alcohol and partying and he finds a girl he likes and kind of shows her his life. She likes it and turned into like a girl version of him but soon partying and drugs take over her life. She's lost in it all. He realizes what he has done he ruined her life and she wont turn back. So now he feels deep regret and is well so sorry.

    It could be taken a lot of ways, but i think iit could be about a girl that the narrator pulled into his lifestyle of partying and drugs, and at first he thinks it's cool that she's into the same stuff he is ("what a work of art i've spawned, man am i proud of myself on this one"). However, he starts to realize that he's bad for her. By then, she's too far in and by the end of the song he's apologizing for messing up her life. A lot of times the music videos don't have much to do with the actual song meaning, or only in a very metaphorical sense. In through sin and self destruction, danny being poisoned by the girl fits in better with the plot, but i highly doubt that the song is literally about a girl trying to kill him. The lyrics don't match up. The girl could be a metaphor for drugs and alcohol, which gives the song an entire new meaning. Great song and great video regardless!!
