Atreyu – Five Vicodin Chased With A Shot Of Clarity lyrics

After all this time of asking questions
Of trying to find something to quiet this soul,
I'm left alone within my mind
Into this self-made hell I dwell.
It's not as hot as you think,
More so dark and cold with no room to breathe.

I'm sorry, I don't think it's gonna be ok this time.
My heart has skipped it's final beat, (it's beating me down)
Onto the floor. That must mean that the pills are working.
The glass isn't half empty this time,
I smashed it on the ground a long long time ago.
It shattered when it fell,
And I broke the pieces (Each shard's another reason),
Another way to give up.

This skin is so tight (so tight)
That the air (the air)
Can't reach my brain (my brain).
There is nothing telling my heart to beat any faster,
To let me scream for help.

I'm sorry, I don't think it's gonna be ok this time.
My heart has skipped it's final beat, (it's beating me down)
Onto the floor. That must mean that the pills are working.
The glass isn't half empty this time,
I smashed it on the ground a long long time ago.
It shattered when it fell,
And I broke to pieces (Each shard's another reason),
Another way to give up.

I will never give up.
I will never take the easy way out.
I will never give up.
I will never take the easy way out.

The glass isn't half empty this time,
I smashed it on the ground a long long time ago.
It shattered when it fell,
And I broke to pieces (Each shard's another reason),
Another way to give up.

This is (This is life).
This is (This is struggle).
This is (This is love).
This is (This is war).
This is (This is life).
This is (This is struggle).
This is (This is love).
This is (This is war).

    Ok I think I get it. He sings about taking vicodin to ease the pain of his broken heart and of his emotional suffering, but he took too much that its killing him (overdose) and he can't scream for help and back out of what he just did. He didn't mean to overdose, but he did. He just has to much pain that 5 vicodin is what he needed to feel ok. Its just how I see it.

    Well from what I can gather. Vicodin is a form of paracetamol but I believe it's stronger. So in the chorus when he sings "that must mean the pills are working." He's showing that by taking five he's overdosed and it's beating his heart down.
    But then later in the song, he say's "he won't take the easy way out." So maybe he's changed his thought of taking the Vicodin.
    It's confusing and hard to explain.
